Snow fix

IMG_7320We have returned from spending a most welcome, snowy holiday in Quebec. We had a storm a couple of days after Christmas, which made everything considerably more festive.

IMG_7326The fields were bleak, visited by crows and a few snow buntings.

IMG_7288This tinsel has been in our family for at least three generations.

IMG_7345People here are as crazy as ever for hockey, especially les Canadiens. This fervor is shared by their pets.

As always, we found happiness and badly-needed exercise in the snowy woods. I hope you had a wonderful holiday. More Quebec posts coming in the New Year.

    oh this made me homesick – days when no Christmas passed without fresh luminous snow. look forward to future posts. Any comments on Christmas traditions there that we don’t see here?

      Most of the festivities in French Quebec households take place on Christmas Eve. Many people also like to shop for bargains the day after Christmas, or Boxing Day. I’m not one of them, though.

  3. If my grand-memere (?) had stayed in Trois Rivieres, this might be my backyard?

      It could be. I’m not sure how much snow they have now. Trois Rivieres is quite far East of where we were staying, but I’m pretty sure the ground is white.
