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.

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.

Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? New France was born and nurtured in an atmosphere of religious devotion. To the habitant the Church was everything--his school, his counselor, his almsgiver, his newspaper, his philosopher of things present and of things to come. To him it was the source of all knowledge, experience, and inspiration, and to it he never faltered in ungrudging loyalty.
