May Long and a Two-Four….

Posted by Allison on May 19, 2008

Awww, the beginning of summer, may long weekend.  I don’t know what you call it in your parts but when I grew up we called this beloved weekend “May-long”  apparently saying the “weekend” was too much work.  We would go camping and drink and stay in tents and drink and play slow pitch and drink and cook on open flames and drink.  I’m sure this is a tradition the world over but in Saskatchewan (and Alberta) with our limited summer this was a huge event.  This called for a “two-four” of beer….We would go out in our “Bunnyhugs” making sure we had plenty of clean ‘ginch’ or the more proper “gaunch”.  Then we’d all play Kaiser until the sun came up…..

I don’t know why people from Saskatchewan are always made fun of…..

    Thanking you for the detailed explanation of the drinking terms for the kids from the States. What you describe is what I would call a “perfect weekend”.

    My hubby likes the blender drinks on the May-long, so even though we were “camping”, we made sure that there was electricity…we’re staying home this weekend, so, the blender drinks will not be a problem. Last year, we made frozen Fuzzy Navels, and I’m just going to go right ahead and recommend them–peach schnapps, orange juice, and ice. Blend it up, and you have breakfast…
