Happy Victoria Day!

Today is Victoria Day in Canada (celebrated on the last Monday before May 25th).  It is also considered the unofficial beginning of Summer and is not dissimilar to Memorial Day in the U.S. in that respect. 

As a transplanted American it has taken me years to get used to these Canadian holidays, but I think I have the hang of it. This day is in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. There is still a lot of that royal stuff up here, which can be hard on my radical democratic sensibilities, so don't get me started. 

It is also a day away from blogging for the most part. See you tomorrow.
