The lighthouse does not just send out its light, but is now illuminated beautifully itself too. http://www.nufoto.nl/fotos/219274/de-vuurtoren-van-noordwijk-in-feestverlichting.html

...
I was once so happy to get a shot of Marblehead (Oh)
at sunset with the shadow of a tree branch stretched
across the tower ...

This is not your classic illumination ... thanks for the shot

Noordwijk is in the centre of the tulips and bulbs region, so that explains the choice for this decoration.
