Did You Know? Acadia - Did you know?  In Acadia, Ash Wednesday (Mercredi des Cendres) ushered in forty days of penitence, as prescribed by the Church. Fasting, for those between the ages of twenty-one and sixty, was very severe, permitting no more than two ounces of bread in the morning, a good meal at noon and a light snack at night. Meat was prohibited, at first every day of the week, and later only Wednesdays and Fridays.

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? Christmas Eve with its atmosphere of wonder offers infinite possibilities to people’s imagination. It was believed, for example, that during this magical night, sand on seashores, rocks on mountains, the oceans and valleys opened up in the light of the moon and the stars to reveal the rich treasures hidden in their depths: this is the revelation of hidden treasures.
