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.

Over time, Quebec has gone through a series of name changes
From its inception in the early 1600s until 1760, it was called Canada, New France.
1760 to 1763, it was simply Canada
1763 to 1791 - Province of Quebec
1791 to 1867 - Lower Canada
1867 to present - Quebec, Canada.

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? In Quebec, it is regarded unlucky to present a gift of 13 flowers. Avoid giving chrysanthemums and white lilies as they are used during funerals.
