WHAT IS KINGSDAY?
From Princess’ Day to King’s Day
Originally, Princess’ Day was celebrated in Holland on Wilhelmina’s birthday (31 August), when she was still a princess. The feast involved many children’s games and decorated streets. When Wilhelmina became the new queen after her father’s death, it was changed to Queen’s Day.
Juliana, the next queen and Wilhelmina’s daughter, celebrated Queen’s Day on 30 April with a parade on Soestdijk. Beatrix also celebrated Queen’s Day on 30 April (her own birthday is in January) but contrary to her mother, she took her entire family and travelled around the country to visit several municipalities. King Willem Alexander has followed in this tradition. He was born on 27 April and this became the official King’s Day in 2014.
The Dutch royal family bears the name: House of Oranje. This literally means the colour orange. As a result it has become Holland’s national color. On King’s Day people wear orange clothes, often even donning orange wigs or make-up and wearing Dutch flags on the side of their faces!!!
Kingsnight or Koningsnacht
It is Dutch Tradition that makes the world green of envy to see all the Dutch Flock in Orange to go into party mode the Night before the King's birthday. The Dutch will drink, dance, eat dutch snacks, and party all night so the next day they can sell their used items on the braderie or sidewalk sale or just go hang out and watch a live band and eat a herring to cure their hang over! We won't have herring available for the hang over but we do have the pre-remedy of a cure available not to drink as much the night before :)
