Hang out the bunting, dust off the silverware and dig out the Union Jack tea cosies, because not only will this weekend mark 60 years of the reign of Her Maj but it also means that we'll get four whole days off work.
And with the good weather looking as though it will hold out over the bank holiday, there is simply no excuse not to get outdoors and celebrate in style.
From street parties and garden teas to family barbeques and picnics with friends, there are dozens of ways Brits will be celebrating the Diamond Jubilee this weekend as they revel in their patriotism.
But however you decide to show your British pride over the bank holiday, make sure you get the food right.
This weekend it's all about the Best of British, which means it's out with the delicate canapes or over-elaborate dishes and in with good old Blighty grub.
According to research from the Flour Advisory Bureau, the traditional sandwich tops the list of Brits' ideal Jubilee food, followed by sausage rolls, cocktail sausages, pork pies, cheese and pineapple sticks, quiche and vol au vents.
However, just because we'll be serving up the traditional much-loved sandwich, doesn't mean we can't get a little creative when it comes to the fillings.
"You don't have to follow the hard and fast rule of egg and cress, cheese and pickle, ham and cheese," says Paul Hollywood, judge on the BBC's Great British Bake Off. "Put your own influence in there - add some pickles, add some sauces, add loads and loads of cucumber and tomatoes."
And don't forget dessert. A Victoria sponge iced in red, white and blue is the perfect way to top off every Jubilee party, while the kids will enjoy helping you rustle up a batch of cupcakes, which you can encourage them to decorate themselves with patriotic patterns such as Union Jacks, crowns or bulldogs.
