Belgium has a temperate, maritime climate predominantly influenced by air masses from the Atlantic. Frontal conditions moving from the west produce heavy and frequent rainfall, averaging 30 to 40 inches a year. Winters are damp and cool with frequent fogs; summers are rather mild. The annual average temperature is around 50 °F (10 °C). Brussels, which is roughly in the middle of the country, has an average minimum temperature of just below 32 °F (0 °C) in January Government
Monarchy and a Parliamentary Democracy
A monarchy is a form of government in which total sovereignty is invested in one person, a head of state called a monarch, who holds the position until death or abdication. Interesting Facts
The Mons Monkey: The MM (Mons Monkey) is a monkey statue that was placed in the Mons town square. Nobody knows who put it there, although nobody ever tries to take it down. If you rub its head it is supposed to give you good luck. If you ever go to Mons, make sure to wash your hands after rubbing MM's head, because some people aren't just satisfied with rubbing his head...
Belgium produces around 220,000 tonnes of chocolate every year. That means, 22 kg of chocolate is consumed per person per year or 61 grams per day on an average. The world’s biggest chocolate selling point is Brussels National Airport. Current Event and Prayer
One of Europe's largest outdoor music festivals was canceled Friday after a stage collapsed during a violent storm in Belgium, killing five people and injuring 50, organizers said.
The storm struck Thursday just hours after Pukkelpop kicked off. The scheduled three-day event was in Hasselt, east of Brussels.
Prayer: We can pray for the families of those who were injured or killed. We can pray that all the injured people will recover fully. Credits!!!!!
