King’s Day – Queen’s Day, don’t book the wrong dates!

d2f9b4504d80c1394cbab32659b76644We used to have Queen’s day in the Netherlands – at April 30st.
Now we that we have a king, we have King’s Day – officially at April 27th.
But this year (2014) Kings Day is at April 26st because the 27th is a Sunday.
And then there’s Kings Night, the night before Kings Day, which is in Amsterdam a festive night with a special atmosphere, a must do – and this year on the 25th.

It’s a bit confusing indeed, but it comes down to this:

Kings Night: April 25 2014
Kings Day: April 26 2014
(Queens Day: no longer exists)
