King Willem-Alexander’s birthday (Koningsdag or King’s Day) is a national holiday in The Netherlands and it is the biggest and best birthday party one could ever wish for. I’m not a big fan of royalty myself, so I take great pleasure from the fact that our king’s birthday is celebrated by having a massive jumble sale paired with a one big piss up. (I have written about this phenomena a few years back, read it on my old blog here and here.)
It is my favourite day of the year and I was planning to travel to the Netherlands again this year, but plans changed when I was invited to DJ at Borrel in Toronto! If possible they’re making it an even bigger celebration than back in the homeland by extending the party over the entire weekend. And I will be there to provide an authentic soundtrack!
