It’s already the May 2-4 weekend coming up here in Canada and that means a day off for most of us on Monday, May 21 to celebrate our beloved Queen Victoria.

She was the Queen of England, Great Britain and Ireland from 1838 until she died in 1901. Why do we care so much about Queen Victoria? She was the Queen when Canada became a country in 1867. Kudos to her for letting us go our own way from the motherland. I think we’ve done pretty well for ourselves, thank you very much.

As we’ve explained in past holiday hours posts, traditionally we celebrate Victoria Day by opening up the cottage, opening up some beers, and blowing up some stuff with fireworks. O Canada!

With the wit out of the way, we’ll move on to official business:

Our Technical Support team continues to be available 24/7 to assist you throughout the holiday weekend.
