Victoria Day



The Monday preceding May 25 is observed annually in Canada as Victoria Day – the celebration of Her Majesty's birthday.  In Quebec, it is known as National Patriotes Day (Journée nationale des patriotes).

This holiday officially celebrates the birthdays of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II.


May 2-4

This is the first of Canada's long weekends and signifies the beginning of spring to gardeners in much of the country. It is colloquially referred to as "May two-four weekend" as those who celebrate often get together to drink beer (a two-four is a case of 24 bottles of beer).
