Monday is Sovereignís Day/Commonwealth Day, a national holiday, celebrated nationwide as the Queen's birthday. Enjoy the holiday!!!

By Hector Silva:

It all began as EMPIRE DAY.

THIS was created, as a celebration of the British Empire, when The United Kingdom was Great BRITANIA that ruled the waves..

Then followed, the amalgamation of the many COLONIES which Britania ruled, but eventually became Independent.

FINALLY Most of the British Colonies gained their Independence and were joined into a British Commonwealth of Nations.

NOW we celebrate the 24th of May as " COMMONWEALTH DAY."

What memories do you have Commonwealth Day celebrations when you were growing up?

- Queen Victoria became queen at age 18 and held one of the longest reigns in British history.

- Her reign became known as the Victorian Era and was marked by significant economic and industrial development in Britain.

- Empire Day was officially recognized in 1916. The day was especially celebrated by schools across the British Empire; children would salute the British flag and sing patriotic songs.

- As countries that formed the British Empire began to celebrate their own identity, Empire Day was changed.

- Today, 54 countries form the Commonwealth including countries that were former British colonies and a few that have voluntarily joined the association.
