Good Question, I will look into it for us Josephine. I too was wondering also... I loved those photos. Thanks for posting and sharing them with us. The Grand Ducal Family is so down to earth, and just seem to enjoy every moment together....

Thank You again,

Chanel

Info on National Day Luxembourg:



National Day
Since the end of the 18th century, it has been customary
in Luxembourg to celebrate the sovereign’s birthday.
During the long reign of Grand Duchess Charlotte from 1919
to 1964, this celebration always took place in mid-winter,
on 23 January, on the sovereign’s birthday.
In 1961, in particular due to the weather at that time of year,
it was decided to transfer the public celebration of the
sovereign’s birthday, and thus National Day, to the 23 June
of each year. Festivities commence on the evening before.
Since 23 December 1961, the National-Day celebrations have
been laid down in a grand-ducal decree. The term ”national
festival” does not figure in the legal texts, the day being described
instead as ”day of the official celebration of the anniversary
of the birth of the Grand Duke”.


More important Holidays in Luxembourg we should look out for photos on:

Liberation Day, September 9. Commemorates liberation by the Allies in World War II.
Burgsonndeg, February 28. Celebrates the end of winter with ancient customs.
Grand Duchess' Birthday, January 23. A holiday celebrated with parades and fireworks.

Public Holidays: New Year's Day, Easter Monday, All Saints' Day, Christmas, and Boxing Day.
