Greg, where are you at in the world? We might be cousins of sorts. My maiden name is Young and I was raised in Illinois. By the way, there is a Clan Young and we are always looking for members.

I also think it would be a great idea that way we can celebrate with everyone, & as stated another reason to party. Great idea.

Not to hijack the post, but I live in Buffalo NY. Young is a fairly common German name ,so I think there are a lot of us!
My brother in law lives sort of out in your neck of the woods (but more SW - in Tucson)

FYI The next Canadian holiday is approaching us soon next Monday is Victoria Day. It's a STAT holiday in Canada honrouring the Queen. It doesn't stick to the same day every year, it is celebrated the third Monday in May.
With most of the people I know, it's just another day off with pay!

People, please!!!!!!!!!!!

Being Canadian born and bred, do you REALLY think I'd forget these illustrious beer-fests - sorry - holiday dates??!!!

These are a list of the dates I submitted to Jeff for inclusion. If I've forgotten any or got any wrong, please let me know and I'll get it sorted. Auntie M - 3rd Monday in May is a darn sight easier to describe Victoria Day than the convaluted way I did it!!!

Canada, eh!

Victoria Day - Monday preceding May 25th (that's the holiday; Queen Victoria's birthday was actually May 24th which is what is celebrated) This year, it's May 19th

Canada (Dominion) Day - July 1st

Labour Day - First Monday of September (think that's the same as you?) This year September 1st

Thanksgiving - Second Monday in October. This year, October 13th

All of the above warrant long weekends and parties! The rest of the holidays are the same as US

Great Britain

Mother's Day (Mothering Sunday) is the 4th Sunday in Lent. Obviously, this changes every year unlike the US and Canada who always have it on 2nd Sunday in May. So, if you find out when Easter is, you work it out from there! In 2009, it's March 22nd. It was March 2nd this year

Father's Day is the same as yours

Britain doesn't do Thanksgiving or Labour Day

Remeberance Sunday is the 2nd Sunday in November (the closest to November 11th)

Each of the 4 countries making up Great Britain also have their own national days.

Wales - St David's Day - March 1st
Ireland - St Patrick's Day - March 17th (you know this one!)
England - St George's Day - April 23rd
Scotland - St Andrew's Day - November 30th


I'll probably think of more, but this is something to be going on with!

Everybody okay with that???

Wow, I have not heard Canada day called "dominion day" for years. We no longer call it that here, it is just Canada day.
We also have a new holiday in Ontario called Family day. It is on the 3rd Monday of February. It is also a long weekend.
