As I mentioned in a previous post, Euro 2012, the European soccer championship, is coming. “Hup Holland” is a sports cheer. Marco got me a picture of the festivities:
And as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the 3rd item in the package I received yesterday was this awesome looking tea cup from Marco. The Dutch definitely seem to go all out for sporting events. Not that Americans don’t… but the country definitely seems to turn into a sea of orange at times like these. Stores begin to realize if they paint anything orange they call sell it!
The schedule is available. (The CET timezone is 6 hours ahead of EST.) The first game the Netherlands play is next Saturday, June 9, against Denmark. Then Germany on Wednesday, June 13, and Portgual on Sunday, June 17.
