Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? In Canada, there is a belief that on Christmas Eve, the dead rise up from their graves and kneel at the foot of the cemetery cross where they are awaited by the previous parish priest wearing a white surplice and golden stole. The priest says the prayers for the Nativity aloud and the departed respond reverently. Once the mass is finished, the dead rise, look longingly at the village and the house where they were born, then silently return to their coffins.
