Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? The Acadians with their fondness for pranks, made good use of the first of April to play April fool tricks. Everyone wanted to trick someone else without being caught himself. And any way of pulling someone"s leg was fair.

Did You Know? 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.

Thanks to Micheline MacDonald for providing this information.
Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? A common belief in old Quebec was that lutins [spirits] had the power to bring woe upon the people. If a lutin becomes offended, his master might discover his boots filled with peas or with pebbles. His pantaloons might be sewed up at the knee. He might find salt in his porridge, and pepper in his tea, and the meat in the soup kettle will be turned into pieces of stone. If he goes cutting hay or grain, he cannot get his scythe or his sickle to cut properly; in winter time the water will freeze in his well, and his wife never can cook a good tourtiere - meat pie - without burning the crust into a crisp.
