Carnival of Money Stories: May Two-Four Edition

canadian-flagWelcome to this 2nd edition of the newly re-established Carnival of Money Stories. And Happy Victoria Day! I’m not Canadian, but I love Canada. So far I’ve visited Vancouver and Calgary and loved both trips. Today just happens to be Victoria Day, also called May Two-Four. Can you guess the double meaning of that nickname? Today, Canadians celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday and the end of their long winter season.

I’ve got some good stories from my trips to Canada that I’ll save for another time, eh. Instead why don’t you spend some time checking out the huge list of money stories below. Thanks to everyone for participating and for linking back to the carnival.
