Victoria Day is a Canadian federal holiday celebrated on the Monday before May 25th each year. This day represents the oldest non-religious holiday in Canada—May 24, 1845, the birthday of Queen Victoria. After her death, this day became recognised as a holiday. Before becoming Victoria Day, it was called Empire Day and observed across the British Empire. In modern times, Canada remains the only country left that celebrates it.

So, why does Queen Victoria get her own special day? For one, she had one of the longest reigns of any British monarch. Her reign lasted over 63 years! Funny enough, Queen Victoria herself never actually visited Canada. However, her father lived in Canada for about 10 years.

How To Celebrate Victoria Day?

Because Victoria Day is a federal holiday in many parts of Canada, Canadians enjoy no work or school. Therefore, people take time to enjoy the long weekend that marks the beginning of summer. Throughout Canada, fireworks displays and parades are held, most notably in the city of Victoria, named after the queen herself. When having fun with family or friends on Victoria Day, don’t forget to snap a picture and share it with #VictoriaDay!
