Sharing Memories (Week 25): Long Weekend in May

This is Week 25 of our 52 weeks of Sharing Memories - A Genealogy Journey Journal. I hope you'll join us with your memories! Write them down - you don't have to share them. Your memories can be private - write them in a journal at home, or they can be shared publicly here on OliveTreeGenealogy Blog or on your own Blog.

Canadians - Who remembers Victoria Day Weekend? Now it's the May 2-4. Fireworks, streets shut off so no cars can use them, lots of music playing in the parks - that's what I remember as a child. What do you remember or do you like best about this long weekend?

I loved celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday, but I always wondered why there was no cake!

American friends, I think you have Memorial Day weekend coming up soon. What kinds of activities did you participate in for that special day when you were a child?
