Happy Victoria Day to all in Canaduh!
Happy Queen Victoria's Birthday today here in Ontario Canada .... or as most of us refer to as the Two Four Weekend.
Why do we celebrate Victoria Day? For some, Victoria Day is a sign that summer is just around the corner. The holiday, which is only celebrated in Canada and Scotland, began as a celebration to honor Queen Victoria's birthday. The British queen was born on May 24, 1819.
Most of us just know this holiday as a time to drink numerous cases of beer and plant some weeds or something in the yard or garden. Although .... it doesn't exactly feel warm enough to plant anything ....... yet.
I will just drink the beer in the meantime. Hence the cases of 24 ... two four ... get it? Ha ... I know you do.
Enjoy your day off if you have it off. Be safe!
