May 4th and May 5th are two very important days in the Netherlands. On the 4th of May, the Dutch commemorate everyone who lost their lives in World War II. At 20:00 PM everyone in the Netherlands participates in a two-minute period of silence. If you are on the road, it is common that people stop their cars at the emergency lane to remember those who lost their lives during the war. On the 5th of May Liberation Day is celebrated among the Dutch. This day will be different due to COVID-19, with no festivals nationwide.
