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.

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? The seigneur was endowed with his rank and estate to the sole end that he should become an active agent in making the colony grow. He was expected to live on his land, to level the forest, to clear fields, and to make two blades of grass grow where one grew before. He was expected to have his seigneury surveyed into farms, or en censive holdings, and to procure, as quickly as might be, settlers for these farms. It was highly desirable, of course, that the seigneurs should lend a hand in encouraging the immigration of people from their old homes in France.
