Celebrations (Or: St. Patricks Day in The Hague 2014)

a day early, but…

Of course when the previous place you lived was Pearl River, NY with the second largest parade in the state (at 100,000 spectators)… anything else will look really, really small in comparison.

The celebration in The Hague was basically one plaza. But, people seemed happy to inebriate themselves:

There was also a live band:

And festive head gear on sale:

And a jolly demonstration of head gear:

So yes, it isn’t quite the same as a crush of 100,000 people, but it will do.

    The guy looks jolly indeed. Like…”Someone ate me last potato” type of jolly.
    At least there was a “kiss me I’m Irish” button for sale. 🙂

  2. Then again, I don’t think there is a huge contingent of Irish people in the Hague, only people who love beer.. I think that might be enough to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day though.
