Today I was asked about orange tinted glasses. What does it mean? It may be a typical dutch thing to just assume everybody knows orange = dutch and dutch = orange. Willem of Orange is the forefather of the current Dutch Royal house, the House of Orange. With any event involving the Dutch, you will see the bright orange colour popping up everywhere: clothes, houses, cake, make-up, flowers.
I grew up in The Netherlands and lived there until I was 29. Even though I do regard myself as a global citizen I cannot look at the world without my dutch heritage imprinted in my brain. I have a framework with roots and values based in the Netherlands. Hence my expression – orange tinted glasses.
