    Default Tomorrow we are getting a KING!!!

    Tomorrow it is queensday in the Netherlands, the last one.........Queen Beatrix will resign tomorrow and her son Willem Alexander will become our King!
    Queen Beatrix has been a great queen for over 30 years, now it is time for her to be a mom, grandmom and relax a little, she has been working real hard, now her son can take over.

    This is the "thanks Beatrix song" wich a lot of famous people made for her.

    There will be feast around the whole country tomorrow, and since our nation color is orange the whole country will turn orange tomorrow, it is so much fun every year, but this yeat is very special because of our new king, Holland has had queens for almost 100 years, now a king, next year we celabrate King Day on April 27th.

    I thought I share our little country history with you all, because tomorrow we are making history!!!!!
    It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive!

    Thanks for sharing that. I didn't understand a word that was being sung but somehow you very easily got the message. She looks like a very sweet loving lady.
    Enjoy the day!
    Be blessed,
    Sandy

    God has a plan and it is a good plan.

    sounds like a fun day in store for you! We still have ties to British Monarchy here in Canada but mostly they are symbolic...what role does the monarchy play there? Are they part of the governing body? Or are they mostly figure heads?

    I wish our queen would retire.........mind you the alternative (Charles) is an even less attractive prospect!

    Glad you are glad

    Well, how about that?
    ENJOY the pomp and circumstance, Klasien. I'm sure it will be a very special day for the Netherlands.
    And surely, after 30 years, a hit of the REFRESH button is warranted.
    ENJOY!
    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....
