Belgian National Day
July 21, 2017
Celebrate the 187th anniversary of Leopold of Saxe-Cobourg’s swearing of allegiance to the new Belgian constitution, creating the independent state of Belgium. Eat a Belgian waffle topped with melted Belgian chocolate and wash it down with a fine Belgian beer. Read some Tintin. Roast up some Brussels sprouts to munch on while you marathon the films of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Look at all the gifts Belgium has given the world! No jokes. Belgium’s pretty terrific.
