The last weekend we went to Holland – Family visit.
My grandma celebrated their 80. Birthday with all of their friends.My job was to sit in my seat is good and waiting for, Someone passing by coming to congratulate me.
No, not for my birthday. But when my grandma.
In the Netherlands, there is this strange custom, each family on the birthday of a family member to give with a friendly hand „Hartelijk gefeliciteerd“.
I did not understand the meaning behind it until today.
On this day the weather was typical: grey & rainy.
But that didn't prevent people not, to come by bike.
The beauty of these festivities is Yes, that one can take full the stomach is with the typical specialities.
My two favorites:
Frikandellen! A thousand times better than the German namesake, Although no one knows exactly what's in it.
the Apple Pie, „appeltaart“ my great aunt
I hope you enjoyed the Sun in Germany something else & had a nice weekend!
