If you are not Dutch you probably didn’t congratulate me yesterday. On Mark’s Birthday. Because that is what people from Holland do.

Dutch people in Ripon throw me off on every birthday, but I did confirm it on Wikipedia: on someone’s birthday, you congratulate the people who are close to them. So if you know Mark and I didn’t mention it yesterday, Congratulations on Mark’s Birthday!

Weird right? It get’s me every every time. I thought it was crazy enough that someone would get congratulations just for being born, but then that congratulations is also extended to friends and family – maybe because they got them through the year?

Anyway, fun fact from Holland for you!

Mark loved his birthday gifts!

Opening birthday gifts! Happy Birthday Love!

Congratulations family and friends on Mark’s 27th birthday!
