Hi Spot
Saint Jean Baptiste Day, held annually on June 24, is the feast day of St John the Baptist, a Jewish preacher who baptized Jesus in the River Jordan. It is a day of celebration in Quebec and other areas of French Canada. Saint Jean Baptiste Day is also known as "la Saint-Jean", "St John the Baptist Day", "Fête nationale du Québec" and "Quebec's National Holiday". Various events are organized on Saint Jean Baptiste Day. These range from large scale public celebrations, such as rock and jazz concerts, sports tournaments, parades and firework displays, to small family or neighborhood happenings, such as yard sales, picnics, barbecues, bonfires and children's entertainment. Many church bells ring in celebration and public dances and fun fairs are held. Some events may be held on the evening of June 23 and many are broadcast live on television, radio or on the Internet. The celebrations are coordinated by the Mouvement national des Québécoises et des Québécois. Saint Jean Baptiste Day is a public holiday in the Canadian province of Quebec. Post offices and many stores are closed.
The poster Mom took a picture of is from our village. Because of the rain, all of the activities were held indoors, but Mom came home and helped me put together this blog. The parade was very small, there again because of the rain. There were only a few cars following, unlike past years, and she did not partake in that activity. Spoil sport Mom. Everyone met back at the Community Center, where the Mayor spoke… and then there was the annual hotdog dinner, along with veggies. They had so many veggie platters, Mom was hoping to be able to bring some home for us but they went fast. For dessert, they had fruit platters and Mom had eaten so much of the other stuff, she packed a fruit plate high and took it home. She went out the back door, because she had to come home to feed us. She headed back after we were settled in and eating because there was a show – a history presentation on Samuel de Champlain. She took a picture of him, which is on my page along with the other pictures, and she was thinking afterwards she should have had someone take a picture of her with him, and tell them she went back in time. LOL After that, there was live music and lots of dancing for a couple of hours, and then, the grand finale – fireworks in the rain.
