Monthly theme day: orange

From my time living in the kingdom of Orange... aka the kingdom of the Netherlands, home of the royal House of Orange-Nassau. Every year, on King's day, people dress in ... well, orange, to honor present and past kings. Nothing do do with some orange monster in Amerikkka. No no no, it has to do with the old southern french principality of Orange., a town now.
More orange photos here. Having some orange juice now.

We have way too much orange here in the US right now. I think I'll skip orange day.

They, on the other hand, look like they embrace their inner orange quite regularly.
