Brielle Day - April 1st!
Each year, on April 1st, the city of Brielle (in The Netherlands) celebrates their independence from Spanish rule.  In 1572, the Dutch attacked and took over the fort city of Brielle.  This was the beginning of the campaign, which eventually liberated the entire Netherlands.
