Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? In Acadia, Ash Wednesday (Mercredi des Cendres) ushered in forty days of penitence, as prescribed by the Church. Fasting, for those between the ages of twenty-one and sixty, was very severe, permitting no more than two ounces of bread in the morning, a good meal at noon and a light snack at night. Meat was prohibited, at first every day of the week, and later only Wednesdays and Fridays.

Did You Know? What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Canada from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.
