Québec Winter Traditions

It has been pretty cold here in New York State and it makes me think about past winters and northern winters. Gilles Vigneault, the Québec chansoner, sang  "Mon pays, ce n’est pas un pays, c’est l'hiver"  (My country is not a country, it’s winter).  He meant Québec is a land of snow,  ice storms, snowstorms and hibernation.  However,  Québec folk are also known for having some great winter fun like toboganning,  cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating.

Québec loves winter, Christmas and Christmas tourists! Just take a peek at all the hype and something about "the warmth of winter"   Hahaha!

Here is another crazy "frozen north" thing to do.....

There is also Christmas in Québec,  Christmas Markets in QuébecQuebec at Christmastime
Lastly, here is an interesting site explaining Christmas Traditions in France and Canada.
