Queenie, it’s your Birthday

I think this is probably the day where most people Down Under might call themselves a Monarchist, even for one day.

Queen Elizabeth II actual birthday in on April the 21st, but here in Australia we “celebrate” it almost two months later. The reason for this? The weather. British weather is well known for being unpredictable and wet…Extremely wet…So making the celebrations for a much more ‘warmer’ time of year means that they can celebrate with the public, they can hold festivals in a lot more pleasanter weather.

Happy Birthday Your Majesty

Did you know? Paddington Bear also has two birthdays!
