Did you know that on Victoria Day, official protocol dictates that the Union Jack is to be flown from sunrise to sunset at all federal government buildings including airports, military bases, and other Crown owned property across the country where physical arrangements allow (i.e. where a second flag pole exists, as the Royal Union Flag can never displace the national flag)? Interesting, eh?
And wait, in that vein, why is it called the Union Jack?
(The internet says that where the term ‘Jack’ came from is not entirely certain but that in some cases, it is suggested you should only refer to the flag as a Union Jack when flown as a jack, or small bow flag, on naval vessels. But it is also suggested that the term ‘Jack’ may have come from James VI of Scotland, who was also James I of England, thereby uniting the kingdoms and causing the creation of the Union Jack.)
Anyway, May Two- Four! How you tug at my heartstrings and emotions. I have memories of camping and memories of huddling inside the house because of our unpredictable weather. It can be a toss up, so Highline has ideas for both!
And if its a not so nice day, or you still feel a little hung over from last years Slush Cup, you have a whole day off! You could finish up that Spring cleaning, tune up your bike, put away your skis, wash your bedding, or take in some yoga. Or you could just sit around and watch this video over and over again.
