2015 the Victoria Day holiday is on Monday, May 18.
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, PEI and Newfoundland. In Quebec the National Patriots’ Day is commemorted on this day.
