I'm not sure why we celebrate it, but Victoria day was fun! It's amazing what you can find at your local Kwick-E Mart in the way of fireworks. Here's a small movie clip at the bonfire. Every time fireworks go off I turn around to film it and when I turn back parts of me are catching on fire. You only get that with GOOD bonfires of adequate size made by city folk who don't know any better!
We went out to my brother's in-laws, made a big bonfire and watched things explode when it got dark! (more photos here!)
