Happy Victorial Day!

Today Canadians celebrate our late great Queen Victoria with fireworks!

The poem I learned from my Mom when I was a kid was:

 "The twenty fourth of May
is the Queen's birth day
If we don't get a holiday
we'll all run away!"

So I have been mightily annoyed to discover, as an adult, that they go out of their way so as to *not* celebrate it on the 24th.  

(Oh, and just so you know, Queen Victoria was long dead by the time my Mom was born... I'm not *that* old :)

For those who are interested, I've programmed hourly Victoria Day posts in my Tumblog for the rest of the day :)

I really like the one of tulips contrasting the statue in the park :)
