Holidays and gift giving occasions in Belgium

When you live in a country that has its name next to some of the best beer and chocolate in the world, you don’t need much excuse to celebrate. That said, there are plenty of public holidays to test out those delicious national specialties, just in case you needed a reason. When it comes to shipping around these dates however, there are some issues – packages aren’t picked up or delivered on public holidays, so if you’re sending around the dates allow extra time.
