When I was very young The Netherlands was called Holland!
And in school there were all these stories about windmills, wooden shoes, tulips, little Dutch boys and girls, and it just sounded like such a wonderful place to be
So I will switch to The Netherlands also! Actually I found out from a poster here on the Forum that even The Netherlands isn't the true name of her country. It is actually The Kingdom of the Netherlands.
I'm pretty sure you're not old enough for that
Last time Holland was the official name for a country was back in the 1790s. The last 200+ years Holland has been a province in the Netherlands. Or two provinces, to be precise. Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland. Together they account for about 1/8th of the land mass of the Netherlands, but a higher percentage of the population. The capital Amsterdam lies in Noord-Holland.
But it's correct a lot of people (still) confuse Holland for the Netherlands and use the first when they mean the second.
