It's Clog day

Once a year have the National ' Clog and Dutch apple cake day '

Everyone wears Clogs on this day,Cloging along in your wooden Clogs,to be greeted by vendors offering fine warm slices of Dutch apple cake.

This is what happens on the last day of work before Christmas, shirley ? Helps you to make a New Year Resolution to find a different job, too.

I am Dutch. I admit. I DO NOT wair clogs. I admit. So far I gather clogs are pretty awful to wear. So Why a clog day?

I don't mind the apple cake though....

I might advise the Dutch holiday called "queensday". A day where everyone is allowed to sell anything (a sort of car boot sale on a national scale) and everyone organises games, etc. Given the pleasant chaos that arises, a better name would be chaos day. Or maybe call it "tolerance" day, where everyone is just doing what he/she feels like doing without being disturbed -as longs as it excludes violence, etc.
