This weekend is a long weekend here in Canada. It’s known as Victoria Day or in true Canuck form “The May 2 4” weekend.
it’s early this year, Victoria Day usually falls around the 24th of the month, hence the nickname for our long weekend, but for some reason it’s a week earlier. It’s often the same weekend that our American friends celebrate Memorial Day weekend.
I’ve always thought of this long weekend as a camping weekend. My family had a cottage and we always went to the cottage for the May 2 4, but once I moved away from home it became a weekend to go camping with the girls or the guys.
My husbands sister had been trying to put something together for this weekend. Kind of last minute, but she’s been calling rv parks to see if they have any spaces left. I still haven’t heard back from her as to whether she’s found a camp site or not.
At this point I don’t know if I’ll be up for going camping this weekend anyway. I’m having that Thyroid biopsy tomorrow and I’ll probably be fine afterwords, but then again I could have a sore neck too. I’ll just have to wait and see. Plus I’m having a Crohn’s flare up, so unless my meds start working right away once I’m able to take them again after the biopsy I won’t be going anywhere this weekend.
If we stick around Toronto we’ll have to at least go to the Fireworks!
Do you have plans for either Victoria Day weekend or Memorial day? If so, what are you going to do?
