Today will be the start of the World Championship of soccer. 🙂
In Holland we adore soccer, especially when it’s the World Championship or the European Championship.
These weeks Holland will be colored Orange to support our players. We will watch soccer together, have soccer parties and celebrate big time when our country manages to win a game.
Why orange you ask? Because it’s the last name of our royal family, ‘van Oranje’ what means from Orange.
I am really looking forward to the World Championship, not only because I love soccer but also because I love the fun times that goes with it.
Here are a couple of photos to show you guys what I mean.
When walking through my neighborhood, you will see a lot of houses and streets decorated wit orange to show support to the national team.
Of course there will also be a lot of flags hanging above the streets. Mainly our own red, white and blue, but also of the country hosting the championship.
Even inside the houses there are a lot of decorations.
The Dutch lion appears on a lot of decorations. It’s our national weapon. As you can see, we have our own all orange little lion! 🙂
