1. lineage: thoroughbred brabant draft horses? no: root directory in East Flanders, combined with very fine brabantian genetic influences (toss in some Limburgian and WestFlandrian influences). And not to forget the whole range of invading populaces (Romans, Franks & Celts, Huns, Spaniards, Dutchmen, Frenchmen, Vikings, Germans, Austrians, Burgundians, etcetera²)
2 & 3. who's talking countries in n°1? this is the Europe of the Regions... most unlikely to go to... well, we used to say the lowest priority continent was Africa, and in fact, first trip this year was there, as is the next trip (dep. 24th of august). So, you never know....
4. we feast the whole time during the year (burgundy influence), yet officially we have the 11th and 21st of july
5. the first ancestors to move to present country? well, statistically you could trace back everybody in Europe to Charlemagne or Julius Caesar. Let's just say: undisclosed mystery wrapped up in the storms of time
