What are the official holidays of the Netherlands?

We can always count on them to extend our number of holidays, we secretly hope they will fall on a Monday or Friday, and they give us an extra day off, that's right: the holidays!

Since there are a few on the horizon... to make your life easier, Karen, we have compiled all the official holidays that fall this year.
