Today, I’m wishing a memorable Memorial Day to all you Americans.
Here in Canada, we have our May long weekend one week before you. I actually think it’s kinda funny how that works out.
Memorial day is specified to be the last Monday in May.
May has 31 days.
Victoria day in Canada is specified to be the Monday on or immediately before May 24th, which was Queen Victoria’s birthday.
Since 31-24=7, it always works out to be exactly one week away, no more and no less.
