Do You Know the History of Victoria Day? Well It’s Today 2023
What is Victoria Day
Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25th. It is a day to honor the birthday of Queen Victoria who was the monarch of Canada from 1837 to 1901. The holiday is also known as the May Two-Four weekend, marking the beginning of the summer season. Many Canadians celebrate this day by attending fireworks displays, parades, and outdoor activities.
The holiday has its roots in the early 19th century when Queen Victoria played an essential role in the development of Canada. Although Victoria Day is no longer a national holiday in the United Kingdom, it remains an important one in Canada, celebrated with great enthusiasm.
We won’t be attending anything today though. There will be fireworks tonight but we aren’t going to attend. People are too stupid when they gather like that and drive like idiots. It’s really not a holiday when you have to work it anyway.
I don’t even get why Canada even still celebrates this monarchy anyway. That whole family is so screwed up and the new king doesn’t even look like he wants the job.
Anyway, this is just a short post to say Happy Victoria Day and have yourselves a great time.
