Liberation Day in The Netherlands

Liberation Day is a special day here in The Netherlands.

We've spend part of the afternoon at a concert.
It was great.

I was the only one bringing special sunlotion.
After burning last week, I had no choice. I don't want to be as red as a ripe tomato again. LOL!

We're celebrating Liberation Day today.

That's why the concerts today were free.
I have to say, we poor students were represented well.

I'm at home for a short while, to change clothes and take a shower.
We're going for a cheap dinner this evening and spend the rest of the evening at the river or at another place where it's beautiful.

The weather is summery.
It ads to the special feel of today.

Liberationday is always a special day here, because people have suffered badly during the occupation of the Germans in WW2.

Laane wrote about it. I can't do it better.

I too grew up in a family where the war was in the centre of many family gatherings.
We alsways took remembrance day very serious, which made freedom day even better.
Friends of my parents used to have visitors from Canada.
Last year the soldier died. But they still went to the graves of his friends.

I'm off now.
My hair is almost dry.

Isn't it great to spend an evening outside again, without freezing?
