Cocaine Princess here.
It's the Long Weekend for us up here. Monday is Victoria Day or as it's commonly referred to as the May 2-4 Weekend. When I was little I never understood why it was called that because Victoria Day didn't necessarily fall on the 24th. I was then informed by a little birdie in my teens it all comes down to alcohol, where cases of beer (as in 2-4 cases) are consumed by people in the Great White North in vast quantities.
It's interesting that the Brits no longer celebrate Victoria Day yet we continue to and although it's a day to honor Queen Victoria's birthday, this weekend also marks the unofficial kickoff to summer, where patio furniture will be uncovered, BBQs will be fired up, some will be heading up to the country to open up their cottages, fireworks will be on display while others will be drinking non-stop through the entire weekend. I'm not sure what the connection is between British royalty and pulling up a lawn chair and raising a beer bottle but it's become a yearly tradition that remains strong and true.
For the past couple of years the weather on Holiday Monday has been rainy resulting in the cancellation of fireworks. Hmm, I'm beginning to wonder if Mother Nature doesn't like Queen Vicki.
My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
Whatever your plans are have a spectacular weekend. ~x
