Victoria Day or May 2-4?

Please mark you calendar, our libraries are closed on Monday, May 20th, 2013. 

Also note, Cummings Library at our Fennell campus is open on Saturday, May 18th BUT IAHS library is CLOSEDCheck our website for details.

The way in which you refer to the coming Victoria Day holiday probably depends on your age. Trust Mohawk College Library to have some info for you!  For the record, the holiday celebrates the anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria.  According to the folks at Canadian Heritage, “May 24, Queen Victoria’s birthday, was declared a holiday by the Legislature of the Province of Canada in 1845.” 

However, there are a few other ways to refer to Victoria Day: the Victoria Day Weekend, the May Long Weekend, the May Long, or the May Two-Four (named after the number of beers in a case).

Fireworks are always part of the scene.  There are fireworks in Dundas on Monday if you want to get out.

Whether you’re studying or camping or gardening, and regardless of what you call it, enjoy the long weekend.
