Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? On January 6th of each year, the Acadians celebrated Epiphany. This tradition included the Twelfth Night cake. The cake contained a ring, a medal, and a button. When the cake was cut, it was said that the person who found the ring would be married soon. The person who found the medal would have a religious vocation. The person who found the button would remain a bachelor or old maid.
