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.
