The Twelfth (also called Orangemen's Day or, in Belfast, Orangefest)
is a yearly Protestant celebration held on 12 July. It originated in Ireland during the 18th century. It celebrates the Glorious Revolution (1688) and victory of Protestant king William of Orange over Catholic King James II at the Battle of the Boyne (1690). It is sometimes called the Glorious Twelfth, but that term is more commonly used to refer to 12 August. Members of the Orange Order and Protestant marching bands stage parades throughout Northern Ireland and to a lesser extent in other parts of the world. The Toronto Twelfth, for example, is North America's oldest consecutive yearly parade. While it is a Protestant celebration, not all Irish Protestants celebrate it, whether due to political or cultural reasons or indifference. More recently, attempts have been made to play down the explicitly unionist political aspects of the parades (as well as any violent history) and present the Twelfth as a "cultural" event, at which tourists are welcome. It has been argued by some that before the Troubles, members of both communities participated in the event; however it was dominated by Protestants and many Catholics opposed the celebrations.
