Today's Artful Adventures theme is "night". Given that it is Victoria Day here in Canada, you can guarantee that there will be fireworks as soon as darkness falls this evening.  A few people have been setting them off on each of the past 3 evenings (even last night in the rain - what?!?) but tonight will be the main event.  The view from my balcony will look something like this:
According to Wikipedia, "The holiday has been observed in Canada since at least 1845, originally falling on Victoria's actual birthday (24 May 1819)" and "Canada is the only country that commemorates Queen Victoria with an official holiday".  For most of us, it's the first long weekend of summer, no matter how chilly it may be.  That's seems a good enough reason to be setting off fireworks to me!
