"Hoelang duurt het nationale feest?"
Translation:How long does the national celebration last?
Can someone please describe what "nationale feest" is? It's translated on the exercise page as "national party," but "party" is not a term we would use in this context unless we were talking about a national political party. I see that on this discussion page, it's translated as "national celebration," which makes much more sense. Still, I suspect that we would use "festival" for what "feest" means here. But I'm not sure. So I'm asking what a "nationale feest" looks like.
Nationaal = pertaining to a nation or a country. Feest = celebration, festival, party (e.g. birthday) or a holiday. "Een Nationaal Feest" = a celebration, festival or holiday celebrated throughout the nation or country, e.g. Christmas, Easter, Carnival, the King's birthday.
