It’s the first weekend of the year that really feels like summer. When you can open up your home-away-from-home, start a barbecue and lounge on a patio.
Yes, it’s the Victoria Day Weekend.
Or...May Long? the May 2-4?
We’re interested in the words of summer. What terms do you use for your summer getaway, and what do they mean to you? There's more difference than you'd think.
Update: Got a question about one of these words? Where did it come from and where is it used? McGill linguistics professor Charles Boberg will be online Thursday at noon to take your questions. Leave a word for Prof. Boberg and he'll tell you where it came from!
