Orange Fever hits the Netherlands
Published on:Sunday, June 3, 2012 - 09:00
Orange streets, Dutch flags and crazy decorations. There's less than a week to go before the kick-off of the European football championships in Poland and Ukraine, and the Netherlands is in the grip of Orange fever.
Orange is the Dutch national colour, and in towns like Goirle, Deventer and Zwolle, entire streets have been turned into orange paradises.
Many Dutch people are also purchasing European Championship-themed gadgets. Every year, people try to come up with new and supposedly original gadgets; this year's hit could be combi moustache-sunglasses, giving an Orange twist to an idea that had been around for a couple of years.
