Queen Victoria's birth day, May 24th, is a statutory holiday in Canada and the first long weekend since Easter. It is the traditional weekend during which one opens 'the camp' (cottage), and signifies the start of summer (and Blackfly season) in Canada. The reference to 'two-four' rather than 'twenty-fourth' is a Canadian inside joke refering to the obligatory case(s) of 24 bottles of beer, or 'two-fours' required to celebrate the opening of the camp and to steel one's courage against the blackflies and the mice that will have settled into the camp since it was closed in the fall.
"Did ya go to the Beer Store and get a couple of two-fours for camp? It's May two-four, eh, and there'll be a lineup!"

Get the May Two-Four mug.
A Canadian public holiday, also called Victoria day. It is known for a weekend where Canadian private school kids head to montreal to get shitfaced at clubs and hit on by creepy old men.

A definition of privilege and entitlement but most gladly own it.
Person 1: Hey, I'm so excited for may two-four. I've never been to Montreal.
Person 2: Hold up, you're like 14. This is for grade twelves only.
Person 1: It's okay, I'll just slip them a few twenties. Plus, I'm hot so it'll all be fine. *flips hair*
