Burnin’ down the house

Victoria Day (in French: Fête de la Reine) is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honour of Queen Victoria‘s birthday. The date is also, simultaneously, that on which the current reigning Canadian sovereign‘s official birthday is recognized. It is sometimes informally considered as marking the beginning of the summer season in Canada.

Victoria day is fireworks day at our house in Oakville.  It was a more intimate affair this year, but we doubled down on the flying lanterns, so that’s something.

And I bought more sparklers than necessary, so we made a garden.
