Luxembourg’s National Day

 

The celebration dates back to the eighteenth century, when it was customary to celebrate the birthday of the sovereign. Under the long reign of Grand Duchess Charlotte, between 1919 and 1964, this celebration always took place in winter, on January 23, his birthday.

 

On December 23rd, 1961, a Grand-Ducal decree transferred the celebration to June 23, mainly for climatic reasons, as the “Day of the official celebration of the birthday of the Grand Duke”.
