The National Holiday celebrates the birthday of the Grand Duke and used to be movable to coincide with the actual birthday of monarch. To avoid cold weather on the January 5 birthday of Grand Duke Jean (reigned 1964-2000), the Grand Duke's Official Birthday celebration was pinned since 1962 to Jean's name day on June 23, and was maintained under the reign of his successor Henri.
