Hup Holland Hup!

In honor of the World Cup, you guys get a bonus blog post. Yay! So football (soccer to American readers) is a BIG BIG deal here and I would be remiss not to mention it. Homes and businesses are decorated in orange (unless perhaps you are rooting for another country then you have their flag up) for the World Cup. Orange paraphernalia and food are on sale everywhere so there is no excuse not to own something orange. Some stores are even giving away World Cup/Holland related swag.

Here is a World Cup Hamster bauble that I got from shopping at Albert Heijn.

Tonight at 9PM The Netherlands and Spain are playing the World Cup so lots of people are camped out in pubs or holding parties to watch the game. The US doesn’t play until June 17th so in the meantime – Hup Holland Hup!
