Winter in Holland(ia)

Winter in Holland, or should it be it Hollandia? Either way, the Dutch "warm up" as the weather gets colder! When temperatures drop below zero, everybody starts talking about the "Elfstedentocht" (a historical ice skating match of almost 200 km)... people want to go ice skating themselves, sleighing... and out of nowhere hot chocolate stands pop up. Besides hot chocolate, "snert" is served everywhere, a typical Dutch split pea soup, something you should try next time you're in The Netherlands!
