In Canada today is Victoria Day. It is a countrywide holiday that historically celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday. Some also consider it a celebration of the beginning of summer like Memorial day in the United States. For most of us it means an extra long weekend. For all the Canadian ZT fans, happy Victoria Day!
For those of us in the East in North America, this sure has been a weird spring. In Toronto yesterday there was snow and hail. What is the craziest weather you can remember? Oh and before I forget a quick congrats to Nessa!
I don't know about you but I had a great Christmas so far. Do you have any special family traditions that you do year after year on Christmas? In our family we open one gift on Christmas Eve. What about you?
Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends today. What are you thankful for?
Only five more days until the Olympics. Will you watch the Olympics? What is your favourite summer Olympic sport? Oh, and to answer Nessa's question - definitely BBQ!
A comment by zt member -Blah: " Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Canada, Happy Birthday to you. How old are you now? Are you 1, Are you 2, Are you 3, (says all the way until 145) are you 145? Yes, you are! Canada's 145 years old!"
I couldn't have said it better myself...
Wow, ZT members have a lot to say in the comments. Here is one for you that I'm curious about. Can anyone remember things they used to believe when they were little. I will go first:
"When I was little I used to think that ... a straw couldn't work if you used it at both ends". I think my sister told me that, and I believed her until I was older. How silly!
Sometimes, 13 is bored and wants to be someone else. If you had the chance, which animal would you be for a day and why?
I don't know about you but I am dog crazy. I don't have a cat because some people in my house have allergies to them, but I do have a dog. She is the best. Today I took her to the lake to go for a swim. The only problem is that she isn't much of a swimmer. She is a pug, so her legs are short. What about you? Does anyone else out there have a pet? What do you do for fun with your pet?
As some of you know we had a hiccup with our system over the weekend. Thanks to everyone who let us know about it. We are working to fix all problems. If you have any specific questions or issues, please email us directly.
Thanks everyone for your patience!
