History is such a fascinating thing and at times we take things for granted.
I find myself learning so much about the little things and so intrigued when my daughters come home with interesting facts they’ve learned in school.
So I’ve heard people say “Oh it’s May-Long”…here little me thinks maybe they mean it’s a long month because it 31 days….or maybe because it’s just that dragging month before in anticipation of the summer holiday.
BOY WAS I WRONG!
It turns out it’s a long weekend because it’s Victroria Day….What’s Victoria Day?!? Yup that crossed my mind and I joked to myself ” Yeah because Canadians celebrate Queen Victoria’s Birthday” Jokes on me….They do celebrate HRH birthday…
Which obviously lead me to do some googling and research to find out why. It’s actually extremely interesting to read more visit The Canadian encyclopedia site. Really good ready!
