Netherlands, Holland and the Dutch

Hillarious video about the confusion between The Netherlands (my homecountry) and Holland, and why the language and the people are called "Dutch".

  1. The Youtube is correct, though two more comments to add:
    1) Those Dutch that do not come from one of the Holland provinces will generally say that they are from The Netherlands and not Holland. (Especially those from Brabant and Limburg are picky on this)
    2) On all those annoying immigration forms in Asia (except for Malaysia that no longer uses them, bravo!) one of the questions is one's citizenship and I will simply write 'Dutch', as it is only 5 letters.
