Happy May 2-4, eh?

Ah the May 2-4 weekend, aka Victoria Day.

The name is as unique as the country.

Where else do they describe a holiday weekend by drawing a comparison to a case of beer?

The day is to mark the birth of Queen Victoria born on May 24th 1819 at Kensington Palace, UK.

It is celebrated here and in Scotland on the 3rd Monday preceding May 25th.

But more importantly it signifies the unofficial start of summer in Canada.

After a winter of cold cabin fever it is when we shed a layer of clothing and rediscover the great outdoors.

When watching playoff hockey moves out to the backyard, patio, porch, cottage or pool deck.

Some years only to quickly retreat in a swarm of black flies, mosquitoes, freezing rain or snow.

The Victoria Day weekend is as Canadian as back bacon, beaver tails, and winter BBQ’s.

Have a safe one.

To the Queen!
