Rokjesdag is the Dutch name for Skirt day. It’s the first day in spring that all the women and girls are suddenly wearing a skirt with bare legs underneath. A great and beautiful day is what Martin Bril thought. Martin Bril was a famous Dutch writer and columnist, who made the definition “rokjesdag” really popular in the Netherlands. Because of Martin Bril the definition “rokjesdag”  is nowadays established in Holland.

The author, poet and columnist who died in 2009 will be honoured on the anniversary of his death with a special “rokjesdag”. This event consists of among other things of a skirt party a skirt exhibition and a skirt design contest. The collection “rokjesdag” will also be published.

I don’t think it’s skirt-day today yet, but it finally feels like spring is on its way…
