Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? Among Catholics, It is said that reciting one thousand Hail Marys on December 24 would ensure obtaining a special favour. While preparing the réveillon for Christmas Eve, therefore, mothers would recite their one thousand Hail Marys without fail for they always had a small favour to ask the Virgin Mary on behalf of one of their children or their husband.

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.
