New Year's Eve in Amsterdam
On this European country averageman knows a lot and nothing, so you can at least see the New Year in Amsterdam in order to dispel myths and understand the main thing: as they walk in wooden shoes and tulips bloom when?
Christmas donuts - the main sign of the holidays
Already on the streets in late November, beginning to selloliebollen, which are crispy deep-fried balls filled with fruit. And smeared with sugar powder their noses and not very solid Dutch - a sure indication that you can start having fun!
Holland likes to relax and restnon-traditional ways, but because two days Christmas surprises nobody continuing here. They are called unpretentious - First and Second Christmas Day, but both are official holidays.
Residents of the country of tulips still a little faith,that come out to hunt the evil spirits in the pre-holiday night, and therefore try to upset the "hunting of hell." So you need to get ready for a wild noise on the streets, which make young and old, blowing the trumpets, and simply clicking on the car horn.
Another sign of the winter holidays - at the fairurban areas. They open on the last Saturday of November and is a spectacular show with a kaleidoscope of souvenirs, fancy hats, Christmas trees and ornaments for them, illuminations and Christmas costumes. All you can buy and try on, touch and ask wrap.
