      the Netherlands National Holiday

    • The 30th of April is celebrated as Queen's birthday, Ire Beatrix, who has reigned over the Netherlands since 1980; this date, however, does not match up with her actual birthday. The Queen was actually born on 31 January, 1938, but that was during the heart of winter and was therefore too cold for outdoor celebrations. The national holiday of the Netherlands has remained the 30th of April, the previous Queen's birthday, Queen Juliana, who died in 2004.
