Celebrating Dutch Queen’s Day in Beijing

Queen’s Day is a the most important national holiday in the Netherlands where the whole country turns orange and everybody is celebrating “being Dutch”. And even here in Beijing Queen’s Day is a big thing! Yesterday the Dutch Association of Beijing organized a big party for the Dutch community and as a good imported Dutchie I was in on it! Plenty of Dutch snacks (you either love or hate them), Heineken beer, Dutch music (for the true Dutch among us: André Hazes’ look-alike was the surprise guest of the evening) and hundreds of Dutch expats (and partners) enjoying themselves and keeping up traditions many miles away from home. And needless to say the theme of the party was: Dazzling Orange….and indeed, it did get orange!!
