Today marks the kick off of the first long weekend of the summer in Canada. The Victoria Day weekend! Also known as May 2-4 because of the fact that it’s usually happens around May 24th. And in honour of the case of beer known as a 2-4. Mainly it’s for the beer actually.
I also know that my American readers are getting ready for their first long weekend of the summer … Memorial Day which happens next week.
BE forewarned. We all have certain anticipations and expectations about how GREAT the summer long weekend is supposed to be. How it’s supposed to go. There will be eating outdoors, no bugs, gingham dresses and smiling faces. It will be Pinterest perfect. And then Reality wretchedness sets in. Just be ready for it. The Victoria Day long weekend may not be all fireworks and frisbees.
How we imagine the long weekend will be.
For my Canadian readers, I hope you have a safe and happy long weekend. For my American readers, when next weekend rolls around and you’ve had a few and you see a hill … don’t say I didn’t warn you.
