Today is Queensday in Amsterdam, it is also known as Koninginnedag. Queensday is a national holiday in the Netherlands. It is to celebrate the birthday of Queen Juliana, which was actually tomorrow - but celebrated today. The celebration normally starts at night, at 7 p.m and goes into the late hours of the night.

Here is the special Google Doodle for the event:

Fijne Koninginnedag 2010!

You can see the Doodle today on Google Nederland.

The Netherlands are a little bit bigger than Amsterdam and Queensday is celebrated in every part of the Netherlands, not only in Amsterdam. The celebrations start the evening before Queensday (Koninginnenacht = Queensnight).

Plus, queen Juliana WAS born on April 30th. All in all, quite some errors in one little post.
