Culture
Food: The most common breakfast food is poffertjes. Poffertjes are a pancake like dish, but they are, smaller, thicker, and sweeter. There is also a treacle waffle, best described as a waffle cookie because of size. Their lunch time usually starts at 12pm or 1pm. Lunch usually consists of bread with cold toppings, and usually only lasts 30 minutes. Their dinner (like ours) starts at 6pm. A traditional meal in the Netherlands consists of meat, bread, and cheese, also with an alcoholic beverage to drink. Cheese is their top food product so they eat it with lunch and dinner most of the time. Vending machines are a huge part of the snacking system, also, no one in the world consumes as much liquorice as the Netherlands. No fewer than 750,000 slices of bread is consumed each day.

Festivals: One main festival in the Netherlands is National Tulip Day.National Tulip Day is when over 200,000 flowers are placed in a garden/flower bed open to the public for free picking. National Tulip Day is to start the tulip season which is January all the way till the end of April.National Tulip Day is good for promotions of florists, supermarkets, and flower stands. Tulips that come from the Netherlands are usually the one that end up in our homes and on the shelves at our local grocery store. The Netherland tulips vary in color. Due to most tulips being in other countries stores and in our own homes the tulip is the Netherlands trademark flower.
This is the typical dinner food of the Netherlands.
