Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? New Year's Day was one of the most popular social occasions in Acadia. In every home people would get up in the morning, shake hands and wish one another 'a good and happy new year, and paradise at the end of your days'.
A farily common superstition required that the first visitor to enter a house be a person of the male sex. If a female entered first, she risked bringing bad luck upon the household.
On New Year's Day, everone tried to wear something new for the first time. This ensured having new clothes all year long.

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? Women wore shirts and skirts made of linen, cotton and hemp. Men wore knee breeches (pants that tied at the knee) and jerkins (jackets). They also wore wide-brimmed hats and tapabords (with earflaps). To survive the cold winter, the habitant copied some of the Amerindian clothing. He wore mittens and moose leather boots lined with beaver fur and a fur-lined coat (pelise). To walk in the snow, he wore snowshoes and loaded his provisions on a toboggan.
