Rokjesdag is a Dutch term, meaning "skirt day". It is the first sunny day of the year, when women and girls start wearing (short) skirts. A great and beautiful day according to Martin Bril, a Dutch writer and columnist who made the word "rokjesdag" popular in the Netherlands. Thanks to Bril, the word became a household word in the Netherlands.
This author, poet and columnist, who died in 2009, will be honoured with a special “rokjesdag” on the anniversary of his death. This event comprises various activities such as a skirt party, a skirt exhibition and a skirt design contest. His “rokjesdag” collection will also be published.
