Holland Or The Netherlands?

Like many of his readers, THC has occasionally wondered "Hey, what's the difference between Holland and The Netherlands; or is there a difference at all?"  And now, here is your answer courtesy of CGP Grey who has developed a YouTube specialty designing entertaining videos that quickly explain most of the big questions you have about the world.  Here, see for yourself.

In this 4 minute video CGP explains the differences between Holland and The Netherlands.  Along the way you'll learn about some Caribbean islands that are also countries and part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and other Caribbean islands that are not countries themselves but are part of the Country of the Netherlands.

As an added bonus, you'll also learn how the Germans emigrating to America in the 18th century ended up being called the Pennsylvania Dutch.
