On National Day, Luxembourg celebrates the birthday of its reigning monarch. This tradition started with Grand Duchess Charlotte, whose birthday was on 23 January.
Her successor, Grand Duke Jean, was also born in winter, and so it was decided when he took the throne to continue holding the celebrations on 23 June. The annual celebrations have been held on this date ever since.
On Luxembourg's National Day, various events and celebrations are held across the country, including a number of concerts and a Children's Play Day.
