Happy Victoria’s Day!
Wishing you all, a Happy and safe Victoria Day long weekend!
Victoria Day is officially celebrated on the Monday closest to May 24. That is the day that was declared in 1901 by the Canadian government, to honor Queen Victoria following her passing. It usually falls on the third Monday in May.
Canadians are celebrating Queen Victoria’s birthday, and continue to honor Queen Victoria because of her important role in the formation of our country. Victoria was Queen at the time that Canada became a country in 1867 and she chose Ottawa as our nation’s capital.
As it is a long weekend, I hope most of you will be able to enjoy valuable time with friends and family members. I am in Toronto, enjoying the pleasant weather, firing up the barbeque, and doing my best to calm down after a busy week to complete my important activities.
Honestly, this time is very precious for me, and I think for all those people who know the value of time.
