The Story of Victoria Day
For many of us, the Victoria Day holiday weekend is the time to start thinking about summer. Bonus: It’s a day off school! But we don't have school right now...so everyday is a holiday.
On this day we celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria, who died nearly 115 years ago! She was Queen when Canada became its own country in 1867, and she was the one who chose Ottawa as our capital. After she died in 1901, the Canadian Government declared that May 24 would be a holiday in her honour. (If the 24th fell on a Sunday, the holiday would be May 25). Please have a safe holiday. It is going to be hard to stay away from our family and friends. But remember the safer we are the sooner we will be able to return to the new normal.
