Happy May Two-Four!

Hubby and I are heading to Ottawa today to celebrate the Victoria Day Weekend with dear friends. Regular readers of this blog might remember us making this trip last year. At the time, we wondered if our visit would be ruined by Harold Campings predictions of the coming rapture and end of the world. Ah, how quickly such wise souls are forgotten….

Happily, there are no such predictions to worry about this weekend. We will put aside those worries for December 21, 2012 and the Mayan calendar predictions. If these are true, it’s going to put a mega damper on our last minute Christmas shopping. Well, at least we won’t have to pay off those credit card bills!

So, to all my Canadian friends, Happy May Two-Four! To all my other friends around the world, we’ll raise a glass (or two) to toast you all from our nation’s capital.

(Note: ‘May Two-Four’ refers to the date around which the holiday usually falls. ‘Two-Four’ is also Canuck slang for a case of 24 beers – a staple for all summer holiday weekend celebrations. Cheers, eh?! 🙂 )
