Village Feasts (16-17th century)
300 years ago, village feasts were moments for farmers and other workers to have fun and, for a day, to forget their daily life worries. This wasn’t an exclusive of the Netherlands.
Há 300 anos as festas de aldeia, não apenas nos Países Baixos, serviam para os agricultores e assalariados se divertirem e esquecerem por um dia as dificuldades do quotidiano.
