    Victoria Day in 2019





    In 2019 the Victoria Day holiday is on Monday, May 20.



    Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every


    province and territory.


    It honours Queen Victoria's birthday.



    In Quebec this holiday is called "National Patriotes Day" (Journée nationale des patriotes).




    Victoria Day is also commonly referred to as the "May two-four weekend" 


    or the "May long weekend" and it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season


    where cases of beer* are consumed by hard working Canadians. 



    That's what we heard anyway. 



    Or maybe it's called May two-four because May 24, 1819 is Queen Victoria's birthday :-)



    FYI: Prince Edward (1767–1820) after whom PEI was named was Queen Victoria's father.



    Victoria Day is a non-statutory "general" holiday in the maritime provinces of New Brunswick,


    Nova Scotia and PEI. 




    In Quebec the National Patriots' Day is commemorated on this day.


    *A case of beer containing 24 bottles or cans is called a two-four.
