Victoria Day: celebrate your victories

Blog, EN

Soon Canada will be celebrating one of the most important festivities on its calendar, the penultimate Monday of May is Victoria Day, a date that shines above the others because it is a national festivity. This is a day where parades and fireworks take to the streets, which surely sounds familiar to the Latino community because it is similar to the common “fiestas patronales” in our home countries.

This tradition is to honor Queen Victoria who was on the throne for a long time (1837-1901), and during this period Canada was founded, hence the importance of this day. There is a long weekend as part of the festivities, so it is very common to see families go out of the city for a few days or going to amusement parks. But this is not only to honor the monarch, it is also to celebrate a “Victory against the weather”, because this day is known as the beginning of summer and it seems that the fireworks open this season.

Speaking about victories we need to mention our own victories because everything we have done there is hard work. So this date is perfect to celebrate our success and the best way to do is to enjoy those typical dishes from our homes; that special food that with just by perceiving its aroma we know that they have been cooked in a homemade way and with love, simply, food with a taste of home.
