  5. Thanks for letting us know about all those holidays. But don't forget Victoria Day! Here's the information: "Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria's birthday. In Quebec this holiday is called "National Patriotes Day" (Journée nationale des patriotes)." It will be Monday May 23 this year. :) Also known as the May 2-4 long weekend, because lots of people drink a 2-4 of beer over the long weekend! :D

  6. We love your calendar, and all of the lovely badges you've created for the special days! Thank you for doing this, Ann. I don't know what we would do without you to keep us all organized. Thanks a bunch, Ann!
