What is on Today's google homepage? King's Day 2023

Today's Doodle honors King's Day, a Dutch holiday that recognizes the rich cultural heritage of the Netherlands.

The night before Koningsnacht (King's Night) festivities, cafes remain open throughout the night as crowds congregate on the streets to celebrate.  As the sun rises, the air is filled with the aroma of Dutch delights such as the orange tompouce pastries depicted in today's Doodle. 

King's Day may sound like a large Dutch celebration. But ultimately, the holiday is about celebrating pleasure and community. Throughout the day, friends and families reunite by attending street gatherings, listening to live music, and perusing enormous vrijmarkt flea markets. 

The most popular celebrations take place in Amsterdam, where orange boats float through the city's renowned waterways, causing the historic canals to explode with color. 

Happy King's Day, Dutch people!
