CAMPUS LIFE

5 - VICTORIA DAY - 28.5/40

Food: ****

There are always the requisite barbecue foods: hamburgers and hot dogs. Then the campfire fare consisting of roasted marshmallows, and occasionally some smores turn up in the mix.

Colour Scheme: ***

There isn't really a set colour scheme, but in the theme of the holiday, we'll go with the red and white of the Molson Canadian label.

Gifts: 0

The only gift that comes out of this holiday is the extra day of partying before it's back to the office.

Music: *****

A Canadian weekend deserves the tunes of a Canadian band. The Tragically Hip are a favourite as the fireworks are going off.

Time of year: ****

Queen Victoria's Birthday, May 24, became a Canadian holiday in 1845 and has since taken the nickname of "May two-four." Since we do live in Canada, the weather in May is often a bit chilly, but this just makes for cozier campfires.

Preparation: ***

Getting to the site, setting up the tents and throwing the logs on the fire. If you really want to class it up, you can head up to the cottage

Company: ****1/2

May 24 serves as the first big reunion of the hometown gang. If you're lucky, some school friends will be thrown into the mix and there are always priceless stories when the worlds of home and school collide.

Drink Rating / Chances for Sex / Getting Arrested: *****

Aside from a 19th birthday party, a single holiday has never before seen a higher consumption of alcohol; however, this is to be expected on a holiday named after a case of beer.
