Today was the 48th birthday of His Majesty King Willem-Alexander. For ages the birthday of our Head of State has been celebrated on 30 April and today was the first time that it took place on the actual birthday of our relatively new king. He became king on 30 April last year.

Anyways, my friend Veronie always tries to make a moneymaking scheme involving costumes (anything for her is an excuse to make a costume, really) and this time the scheme was revolving around a pillow fight. Innocent passers-by could take a pillow and pick a fight with their sibling, spouse or boy/girlfriend. Of course this were very successful and the money kept rolling in. In any case, we had lots of fun and so did our contestants. We were also quite lucky with the weather, because the sun was bright in contrast to the gloomy weather forecast. How was your King's Day?
