Time to take a break

It’s time to take a break. The long weekend is here where families and friends get together without having to worry about working on Monday. It’s the Victoria Day long weekend! A time to buy fireworks and to wait until it gets dark to set them off. Usually, neighbors get together, pitch in some cash and purchase a stash of fireworks for all to enjoy together.

The holiday is to officially Queen Victoria’s birthday. Canada is still aligned to the british monarchy and this is a holiday really still holds on to the country’s colonial roots. Still, I don’t think the people mind, as the holiday is really an introduction to the summertime.

It’s also time for me to take a break. See you in a few days.
