Victoria Day Ushers in Summer

Canadians today celebrate Victoria Day, a holiday that officially commemorates the birthday of Queen Victoria and acknowledges the reigning British monarch and the peculiar British monarchial connection to Canada.  Less formally and probably more significantly for most Canadians, it marks the start of summer across the country.  So, if we see the cars of numerous “snow birds” — obvious by their Canadian plates — heading north this month back to Canada, this may be part of the reason.

To Canadians everywhere, here’s hoping this Victoria Day is grand and your summer is full of pleasure!
