"Every city and town in the country transforms itself into a fairground: bright orange pendants wave in the wind; town choirs welcome the day; all shops are shut and all trade is unregulated - the streets become a market place as attics are emptied for “hidden treasures” to sell. In Amsterdam, over a million people flock to the streets and there are parades, concerts, theatrical displays and street entertainment. Music is everywhere and boats with live bands line the canal as fireworks explode into the sky."
So get out your orange outfit and take it to the streets people. Suz and I are celebrating by going to see Billy Elliott. Go figure.
