I was just on my way to bed dreading the endless hours of homework I'll have to do tomorrow, when I realised ITS A HOLIDAY!!

Thank goodness Canada's in the commonwealth, otherwise I would've had to hand in 10 pages of notes on Physics! (please note the sarcasm)

The weekend before May 24th, we get a holiday to celebrate the Queen's birthday.
There's an old chant that goes like this:
"The 24th of May is the Queen's birthday, if we don't get a holiday, we'll all run away!!"

So here's an early birthday toast to the Queen...!!
happy monday, everyone!;)

On the eastern seaboard of Australia, the queen's birthday holiday is usually in June. On the west coast, at the beginning of October.

I believe her birthday is in May, so perhaps Canada actually observes the correct day? QEII must be 80 by now
