Thank you Carol !!
Thank you Li!! I had a very pleasant day yesterday, thank you!
Very festive, Cathy. Happy late holiday to you.
Thank you Rob! It isn't celebrated in all the Canadian provinces. Quebec doesn't celebrate it. Other than a parade here or there most people don't do anything special on this day. In fact many Canadians spend this weekend working in their gardens!!
Happy Victoria Day Cathy!! I've learnt something today!! I wonder if it's celebrated anywhere else?
Oh Jacques! I almost missed your note. Thank you very much for your good wishes!!

Happy Victoria Day to you too Cathy. Hope you enjoyed your day off too. Don't see very many houses decked out for this particular holiday around here - this one looks very nice. Lots of fireworks the last couple of days also that are real fun.
I am humming "Oh, Canada", as I solve the puzzle. Happy Victoria Day to you and all of our Canadian jigidiers.
Happy Victoria Day to you Cathy. You chose a lovely picture for this event.
Nice picture Cathy, and a Happy Victoria Day to you!
May 24th is actually Queen Victoria's birthday. :)

And a Happy Victoria Day to you, too, Cathy! Any excuse to party, right? LOL!
Thank you very much Okieclem. (I love your profile picture!!) Probably because we get tons of rain ... which nobody envies!!!! I'm glad you stopped by!Thank you Ank. Here is a blurb from Wikepedia. Victoria Day is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. The current Canadian sovereign's official birthday is recognized on this date too. It is sometimes considered as marking the beginning of the summer season in Canada.I wish you a happy Tweeke Pinksterdag!!! HugThank you Laurajane! I am retired so the expression 'long weekend' is no longer in my vocabulary. How nice that all your weekends are long too !!! ... :-))))
I forgot, Have a beautiful day, hugs.
A happy Victoria Day to you, Cathy and a happy Pentecost Monday to you, Ank! It is not a holiday here. I just have Mondays off from work :o)
Happy Victoria day to you Cathy. Good morning. What do you celebrate on this day? Today we have a fay off too. We have "tweede pinksterdag" Whit Monday, second Pentecost. Just like Christmas and Easter we celebrate it with two days.I like this nice photo.
