This Is How We Celebrate New Year's Eve In Holland

A Dutch tradition is to celebrate New Year's with family and friends while eating deep fried lard balls, lard apples and pop a bottle of champagne at midnight!

Delicious 'oliebollen' en 'appelflaps' are always one of the things I look forward to when I fly back to Holland during Christmas and New Years.

The food is a true Dutch tradition and will only be eaten on New Years eve. Its basically deep-fried dough with either raisans or pieces of apple.

I celebrated New Years at my parents place in IJmuiden.

Prior to the night I met up with some of my friends from elementary school and highschool.

After the countdown I went to Cafe Dinges, located on the Kennermerlaan which was supposedly a private party and I had to pay 50 freaking euros to get in while all the booze and food was pretty much gone, but thankfully lots of the local friends were present.
