Confused about Holland or The Netherlands?

There is a widespread confusion about the country where I live.
Is it "Holland", or is it "The Netherlands"?

Well, sometimes we even add to the confusion  when we send postcards with "Greetings from Holland":
the pics will show the typical Dutch tulips at Keukenhof or the windmills of Kinderdijk.
Aren't those the most iconic items to signal:  this is a card from The Netherlands?

The following video can make things clearer, but be prepared for some surprises :-)
