INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday. Victoria Day !!

Victoria Day (French: Fête de la Reine) is a national Canadian pubic holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honor of Queen Victoria’s birthday. So this year is officially Monday 20th!! Yeahhhh, day off!

Victoria DayBut what do you know about this day? I’m sure a lot of you don’t know too much about it, so keep reading!

Queen Victoria was born on May 24th, 1819 and is still the longest-reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. (During her life, the British Empire expanded substantially).

The monarch’s birthday has been celebrated in Canada since before the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign.

After her death, on January 1901, May 25 became “Empire Day”, and for many reasons the Monday before the 25th became Victoria’s Day!!

In some cities, fireworks are displayed or parades are held to mark Victoria Day.

One of the most notable parades is held in the capital of British Columbia; Victoria, which was named because of the Queen Victoria! It’s really famous its Victoria’s celebration, so If you can don’t miss it !!

I hope you enjoy Victoria Day wherever you are!

Best,

Mercedes
