Canada's already getting its May long weekend, this week: check out some ideas at About.com's Canada Travel site for Victoria Day Weekend 2013.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday in May, and though its origin is a sober one-- to honor and remember those who've died in war-- and many events still commemorate this purpose, over time this long weekend has also evolved into the unofficial kick-off for summer-time.

Also, many resorts and hotels dream up special long weekend packages with BBQ's, entertainment, fireworks, to create some festive start-of-the-summer fun for their guests.
