Koninginnedag!!!
(Translated: Queen's day)


When? This saturday the 29th!!! Come to the Netherlands have join the fun!

Time to go outside and go Orange! Every year all us dutch folks jump out of our comfy homes and go outside to PAHTEY! Hellz yea its queen's day!
What do we celebrate? Beats me, it's got something to do with our current queen and previous ones.

The city I live in, The Hague (2nd city of The Netherlands), has a special tradition. Queen's night! (The night before queen's day).
Ofcourse Zech is also taking part of this tradition... Meaning I won't be on friday and prolly not even saturday. Cuz you see, me and my friends have our own special tradition to get wasted and have loads of fun: doing the contest "Where do I wake up tomorrow?"
