Pinksterdrie (Pentecost Three)
In 1574, the Zaankanters defeated the Spaniards on Whit Monday. It was a bloody battle, especially in Wormer, in which many Spanish soldiers were killed. To celebrate the victory, the Zaankanters launched Pinksterdrie (Pentecostal Three) as a holiday. Since 2013, the annual event PinskterZaan has breathed new life into this history.
