Happy Victoria Day!

My work face!
Today is Victoria Day here in Canada, and I'm having fun at work. Okay, not exactly having fun, but the pay cheque of working it will be fun. For those of you who don't know what Victoria Day is, it's a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria's birthday.

Victoria Day is also commonly referred to as the "May two-four weekend" or the "May long weekend" and it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season where cases of beer* are consumed by hard working Canadians. Or maybe it's called May two-four because May 24, 1819 is Queen Victoria's birthday :-)
