Happy Victoria Day my fellow Canadians :-)! To the Vancouverites (I'm still getting used to referring to myself as one again!), I hope you made full use of the past weekend's beautiful weather! My New York Bar exam materials from Barbri arrived in the mail last week: two boxes of books and a box with an iPod with recorded lectures. I spent some of last week after they arrived getting a head start on the MultiState preview stuff and then found it impossible to do so once the weekend and beautiful weather rolled around!
A quick Social Studies lesson, courtesy of Wikipedia:
Victoria Day (in French: Fête de la Reine), colloquially known as May Two-four, May Long, or May Run, is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the last Monday before or on 24 May, in honour of both Queen Victoria's birthday and the current reigning Canadian sovereign's official birthday. It has been marked since before Canada was formed, originally falling on the sovereign's actual birthday, and continues to be celebrated across the country on a fixed date and in various fashions, also being considered an informal mark of the beginning of the summer season. As a federal holiday, Victoria Day is a holiday for Quebec; however, the government of Quebec, in 2003, made the same day concurrently National Patriots' Day.
As Victoria Day is sometimes referred to as the beginning of the summer season, I think it's the perfect time to start shopping for summer clothes. I'm currently loving this BR Monogram Pleated Silk Dress available only at Banana Republic in the United States. I wish they'd bring the BR Monogram collection to Canadian stores too!
