My Virtual Lions Gate BREAK - May 24, 2021

Happy Victoria Day!

 

In 1845, during the reign of Queen Victoria, the queen's birthday was declared a holiday in Canada. After Victoria's death in 1901, an act of the Canadian Parliament established Victoria Day as a legal holiday, to be celebrated on May 24 (or on May 25 when May 24 fell on a Sunday).

See you next Monday, May 31.
