I am on the other side of the Canada-U.S. border, so I am not quite sure what to make of Victoria Day.

I know where it came from. I also know that it is not so popular in Quebec.

But beyond being the unofficial start of Summer, just what is Victoria Day about in Canada ?

Is it just a three-day weekend ?

If it is more, just what is that more ? How is it different today than 50 years ago ?
Here is a recent CBC News feature that might help shed some light.

For those , like me, seeking to be more informed about the holiday, here is some background information.

As we try to gain some insight, we will you enjoy the long weekend ahead.
