They just celebrate, well, the birthday of the king… And like every birthday boy, he is present at every party in town.

10. You’ll definitely feel “forever young”.

And as my friend said, if some other nation were interested, the King’s Day would also be the best day to invade Netherlands.

See, even that phrase has the word “best” in it! 🙂 Long live the King!
