Empire Day

In Britain (and possibly a few other Commonwealth countries) some schools used to celebrate the British Empire and Commonwealth on that day (24 May - Queen Victoria's birthday). I was under the impression that people stopped celebrating it in the mid 1950s or earlier.

Some people in Britain refused to celebrate Empire Day already before World War 2.


...and some people celebrate it still.
