A Typical Long Weekend

This weekend was a long weekend. See, 1 May is Labor day in much of Europe. And then the Poles celebrate Constitution Day on 3 May (I'm still pretty sure that Constitution Day was an elaborate plot. Independence Day is 11 November, which is a really sucky time to have BBQs and sit outside drinking beer, so they waited to sign their Constitution until Spring/Summer so that they could have a nice day to have those BBQs and beer drinking. Brilliant plan if you ask me.)

So we tried to go to a Renaissance festival, had a birthday party to attend, went to the pool and abducted some children*.

Perfectly normal weekend.

*I can't tell the abduction story as it involved my husband and this week is his birthday. This is my birthday present to him.

But next week, it's on. ;)

  1. We, on the other hand, celebrate St. Martin's day on 11th November (but we go to work) by gouing out partying a little, eating, drinking etc. St. Martin is the saint who "turms must into wine", you see - a very important patron!
    We do not celebrate 3rd May, but 1st and 2nd, second being just a part of the 1st, somehow.

  2. It's a shame there were no Beltane parties for me to go to here in uptight Connecticut. Sigh.

  4. That sounds like an overly-complicated justification of a BBQ. I say if it is sunny you should just have one.

  9. I assume that between the beer drinking, the child abduction and the feminine stimulant gel, your prospective employer is no longer reading the blog?! :o)

  10. G'day from Australia, where we just missed out on a long weekend because Anzac Day was on a Saturday!
