In many families, birthdays are really big deals. Take our house for example. We celebrate Mrs. T birthday month throughout June. Mine I'd just as soon forget, since I lie about my age anyway.
The Windsor's really know how to stretch out a good thing. Elizabeth R enjoys many birthday celebrations, real, official and otherwise. Although born on 21 April, today by permanent proclamation, is Betty's official Canadian Birthday, not to be confused with Victoria Day. Next month she celebrates her official birthday on the first (NZ), second (Australia) and third (UK) Mondays. That's a lot of cake and ice cream.
To our Canadian friends, Happy Summer!! Enjoy your holiday parties and summer frocks, warm weather has been too long coming.
To her Majesty, many happy returns of the day. I hope you live forever, you're good for business.
