How traditional would you say you are?

Froyh’s Profile PhotoMerve
Hmm it’s hard to tell because the original Dutch traditions and culture haven’t really been around since about 1900.
I hold on to the traditions we sort of have though:
celebrating Kings Day: the birthday of the king. On this day everybody can set up a spot and sell some of their junk. It’s like a huge flee market all over the country. There are also festivals and it’s normal to dress in orange. 🧡
Kids do ‘Kings Play’ which is basically a sports day at school. Where they do an estafette with different activities.
Memorial day: 2 minutes of silence on the 4th of May, to remember those who died in the second world war.
Day of Freedom: 5th of May: celebrating that The Netherlands wasn’t occupied by the Germans anymore.
Then we have a bunch of Christian celebrations as traditional, like Easter and Christmas. I do not really celebrate it since I’m not a Christian, but we sort of have our own twist.

for dutch bros coffee, do dutch people just call it bros up there?

I had to look it up, since I still had no idea what that meant.
Dutch Bros Coffee isn’t Dutch, but an American brand. This brand isn’t anywhere in The Netherlands. It is founded by two men that are born in America (so they are American) with Dutch descent. 😊

Do you think a therapist would be honest enough to end the therapy sessions if the client didn't need it?

Idk, I mean just because they perceive the sessions as unnecessary or done, doesn’t mean the client perceives it the same way and might still need professional help.
I also think it kind of depends on where you live. Here in The Netherlands there is a shortage of professionals and very long waiting lists. To prevent the list from getting longer, professionals might end therapy sessions earlier than in a country like America, where these practices are corporal. It’s also payed by health care insurances here and they have rules.

Are there places like McDonalds and/or other fast food places in the Netherlands? If so, which one(s) do you prefer going to the most? 😊

Yes, of course haha.
We have McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Five Guys, Febo, Domino’s, Subway, New York Pizza, Kwalitaria, La Place, Starbucks, Bagels & Beans, Sparerib Express, Taco Mundo, Eazie, Taco Bell, Smullers and way more

Hi, thanks for the question! I have indeed. I've been to France, Belgium, Finland, Iceland, Spain, Netherlands and Germany. I'm also going to Poland next month. I've never been outside of Europe but my boyfriend and I are saving up for a trip to Vegas.

Why do you like spring? Do you have any special reason to like this time of year?

magdamagdalena90’s Profile PhotoMagdalena ¥ =)=
Oooo I loveeeeee spring!
I love snow, but winter is just so hard in the northern parts of the world. The darkness really takes away my mood and energy.
I’m soo happy to feel the warmer breezes again, but mostly to see more sunlight again!
Besides that, the weather is best in spring here in The Netherlands. It’s a bit less humid than in summer and less hot, but still quite warm. 😊

I love exploring a country and I love to be active. What my boyfriend and I did last summer was perfect: we went to different theme parks in The Netherlands and Germany whilst also exploring the country between days. 😊

I’m so so late for this, but I had a great summer so I still want to share! Lol.
I spend a part of my summer working at a restaurant in a resort. It was so much fun!
I spend another part of my vacation traveling to various theme parks in both The Netherlands and Germany! It was such an amazing holiday. 🥹

Who was your favorite classmate? Or best friend in school or university or work mate?

ManWithout1plan’s Profile PhotoManWithout1plan
I didn't have favorite classmates in school. Either I don't remember anymore or I don't want to remember. Past is past. I don't think about it because I closed the door to my past. 💚 But I have to say that I had a few best friends in those years.
My best friend in my first univeristy was Paweł (Paul) but our friendship ended for many private and also unknown reasons for me so I don't want to talk about it. He had a lot of advantages because he was good, polite, kind, protective and person who you can trust thanks to I wish him all the best in his life. 💚
My favorite workmates were Marek (Mark), Dominika (Dominica), Eliza (Elisa) and Sarah.
Sarah was teenage Dutch girl. I worked abroad e.g.in the Netherlands and in Germany in the years from 2019 to June 2022. In the Netherlands teenagers go to work and this is le*gal and common behave.

What is your traditional Christmas food? 🍗 🥩 🎄 🎅 🎁 🌰 😇

Gourmetting!
With gourmet you grill small pieces of meat and vegetables on a grill that’s in the middle of the table. It’s been a very long tradition in The Netherlands! 🇳🇱

What was the best (or just a good) purchase you made this year? 💵

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
This isn't the best purchase I made this year because I'm most satisfied with the JBL in-ear headphones that I received in February as a birthday gift. It was exactly what I needed and it's pink.
P.S. Pink is one of my favorite colors! 💚
P.S.2. I went abroad for work for the first time in 2019. I traveled to the Netherlands until July 2022. I really have a lot of things, clothes, shoes so I try not to overdo shopping for some time because my wardrobes are bursting at the seams. 😂
P.S.3. I no longer want to lead an overmuch consumerist lifestyle. Although from time to time I enjoy shopping. It's true but now I have other priorities e.g. to buy a flat.
I have half of the necessary amount of money for this purpose. I will take out a loan in a year or two years (In my view a loan is a better option than living with your parents a long time or forever).
I want to have my own place, not with another person. Is it selfish? In my opinion it isn't selfish. In my view it's practical and reasonable. I don't want to have lawsuit in future. 💁🏻‍♀️
It's my final decision. 😊
P.S.4. I'm sorry for mistakes in my answer. 🤭 English isn't my native language and I won't be perfect in this language. 😊

Is it appropriate to put a mistletoe at a holiday office party?

It kind of depends on the team whether or not it’s appropriate. A kiss doesn’t have to be a kiss on the lips, a kiss on the cheeks can do too.
Here in The Netherlands people that know each other well (family, friends, but also close colleagues) kiss each other on the cheeks three times by greeting and farewell. In some companies a mistletoe would not be seen as inappropriate because of that.
It’s also very important to respect boundaries.

How is patriarchy fought in your country? Are there any particular teachings in your schools or do they fight patriarchy only with the repression of the law and prison?

The Netherlands is a very diverse country with schools of all different kinds of religions and views. Some schools are very openminded about these views and try to exclude gender roles, which helps preventing these kind of views.
In The Netherlands children can also take on the mother’s last name since a while. This is also a small step towards equality.

What did you buy on Black Friday?

I didn’t buy anything on Black Friday. I’m not into consumerism and there is nothing new I need at the moment.
Besides that, most Black Friday deals, at least here in The Netherlands, are fake. They usually uplift or pretend the price was higher beforehand and you end up paying the same or even more even though they make you think that you scored a big discount.

I see that you would like to live in The Netherlands for your whole life. 😊😊😊 What are some of the things that you love about the Netherlands?

StephenInd’s Profile PhotoStephen Ind
I love how we’re a small country on map size, but big in economics.
The Netherlands has basically everything close by and they are advanced in infrastructure.
I love the weather here: we have four seasons which are very noticeable. The weather can be a bit extreme sometimes, but not too much. It mostly just rains and storms haha.
The healthcare is good, it could be a bit better, but it’s good and it isn’t very expensive.
I would mostly stay because I have a job that requires me to know a lot about the language. I think I would not be able to do my job somewhere else.

Do you have to wear makeup for your work?

No, here in The Netherlands asking such a thing is a form of discrimination, since it’s only asked of women.
The only places where make up is required for work, is when it’s functional. For example: when you’re in a costume for a party you were hired for, when you work in a circus, a parade, etc. Everywhere else it’s illegal for an employer to require their employees to wear make up.

What was the last trip you planned? (Speaking about travelling) 😄 🏝 Where did you go, what did you see? Perhaps post a photo you've taken. 🌍

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
The last trip I went to was to the Netherlands! In two weeks time it's been exactly a year since then. I mainly went there to spend some time with a few faraway friends. Together we explored Amsterdam, while there we went to various museums and ate good food. We went to Efteling, which is a big theme park based on various famous fairytales. I also went exploring Utrecht and Kasteel De Haar. The week I spent there was a lot of fun! 🇳🇱💙

Post a photo, or anything that was from this year, that makes you smile. Can be a photo you took at some point, something you made, or something you saw elsewhere that you have a good memory of from this year.

LouisaRHale’s Profile PhotoLou
This was the last photo I took after a long and fun day at Efteling in the Netherlands with friends. We had stepped out from the last ride we went on and looked out over the park, with the blue lights from the Baron 1898 coaster reflecting against the water. I have so many fond memories going there, such as when we ate stroopwafel covered pancakes and spun a certain ride so hard I was preeetty wobbly afterwards. Honestly, the whole week I spent there last summer was quite unforgettable 💙🇳🇱

Jak się podoba Tobie ta piosenka: https://youtu.be/X3xdVOJrphs Pytam, ponieważ została ona uznana za piosenkę polskich emigrantów zarobkowych w Anglii. Mi się podoba, tym bardziej że ścieżka audio i video ze sobą współgrają, a na Tobie wywołała wrażenie?

How do you like this song: I'm asking because it was considered a song of Polish economic emigrants in England. I like it, the more that the audio and video track work together, and did it make an impression on you?
The artist C-BooL in England is very well known and appreciated among the Polish community, especially those who have time not only for work, but also for clubs with Polish music. It is also slowly becoming known in the Netherlands. It is not as well known as your favorite Sanah is in Poland, but C-BooL is not promoted as much as they promote Sanah. They must have come to the conclusion that good music will break through without promotion. I noticed that Poles do not like people who have achieved significant success abroad. Perhaps that is why in the Polish media they promote losers, and people like C-BooL remain unknown. Grab one of his latest songs
C-BooL w Anglii jest dobrze znany i ceniony wśród polonii, szczególnie tej, która ma czas nie tylko na pracę, ale też na kluby z muzyką polskich twórców. Powoli również zaczyna być znany w Niderlandach.

if a woman is in her early 30s and hasn't had a child yet, do you think she'll never be a parent? at around 30, biologically speaking, your body gradually begins getting old, which means your reproductive system too. that is why docs say the risk of pregnancy increases after 30.

Not at all. On average most women in The Netherlands get their children when they're around 33 years old. And you start to see a lot more parents these last few years who start to have children in their 40s. Age doesn't say so much anymore. Some people in their 50s are more fit then some 20 year olds.

My only interaction with people on thanksgiving was my coworker texting me 'happy thanksgiving' so I texted back 'happy thanksgiving Jack'. And like that was it. How many people did you interact with total ? I'm just looking for other people's reality over mine..

Well we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in The Netherlands. But yesterday I did interact in person with 4 people, not calculating the strangers in the public transport and on the street or the people I talked to online.

Has anyone ever experienced that your ASKfm profile was suddenly relocated into another country and the shoutout questions you’re seeing are based off of the country’s current shoutout and not your exact location?

I just noticed that you're in/from Netherlands - my question is, what would be that one place you'd suggest for everyone to visit? 🇳🇱 *But you can list more than one.* 😁😊

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
Haha!
🏘️ The first place I’d suggest everyone to visit is the city Utrecht. It has the same architecture as Amsterdam, but it’s less touristy, more actual Dutch (compared to Amsterdam). Lots of students in Utrecht as well, so there’s always a lot to do! Near Utrecht you also have Kasteel de Haar: a castle from around the 13th or 14th century.
🏰 Then I’d suggest to visit the theme park Efteling. It’s a fairy tale inspired theme park and it’s 70 years old so it holds a lot of history and memories there!
⛵️ Lastly I’d suggest Amsterdam. Amsterdam is just a whole different vibe from other cities around the world. 😂
Picture below is the entrance of Efteling in the evening. 🥰

What legendary/folklore monsters do you have in your country?

In the southern part of The Netherlands some people believed in the Kludde.
A Kludde is a shapeshifting tormentor and water demon that looks like a big dog that walks on his hind legs carrying heavy chains. He has batwings on his back and crimson coloured eyes.
It is said that the Kludde spawns from the cremated bodies of witched and wizards. If you kill a Kludde, seven more will spawn from it’s corpse.
If you’re every being chased by one, you can try to escape by throwing a handkerchief. A Kludde will have to tear the fabrics apart very carefully.
