It’s all about May-satwe

The May 24th weekend in Canada is the Celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday. To me it has a different significance; The long weekend has launched many a boat in the lakes, and cottage season starts. So from then until labour day people take to the northern routes and hang back for three days. I live in the middle of cottage country so our population starts to grow for the spring and summer. One very large significance is that I associate the May long weekend with the birth of my daughter twenty-two years ago. I wasn’t able to go visit my parents at the cottage because I was welcoming Heather into our family. The one thing I gladly gave up a weekend of fun for.  I missed celebrating Mothers day that year but I have had the pleasure of being called mom ever since.
