Talking Happy Saint-Jean-Baptiste day!!! :)

Tomorrow is Québec's national day, Saint-Jean-Baptiste. It's a day to celebrate our culture, our wonderful history and our diversity. It's also - mostly - the day to get drunk out of your mind in the park, listening to local bands The biggest party of the year!

I need everyone of you to find yourself a drink, raise your glass, and toast with all the province tomorrow night!

Bonne Saint-Jean!!!

Party on!






Here's some Québec classics to get us moving!

I'm not sure if your belly button ring is caught or if your dad glued you tummy to the couch but I hope you get free so you can get out and enjoy!!!

I'll have a big plate of Poutine tomorrow.

Bonne Saint-Jean!!!

Bonne Saint-Jean to you all, it's now past midnight so we can officially start drinking for the next 24 hours!

I raise my glass (bottle) to MR and international friendship!

Barcey, enjoy your poutine (mmmm...poutine....ever tried one with spaghetti sauce on top? It's to die for!) and thanks for the wishes! The big party is tomorrow in Montréal, so tomorrow I party!!

Thanks WDE, and DGMa, I can't wait to see you in Québec!

As WDE reminded me, we can't forget traditional music!

This one I love (excluding the first 20 secs, there's a problem with the video)
I did dance with the group once, in a folkloric music festival - unforgettable!



And this band, Mes Aïeux, is a modern version of La Bottine - plus, the video has English subtitles! Yay!

Ok, so I'm already in full party mode and it's 8:50AM, so before I start preparing the pic-nic and start lurking at beer bottles, I want to wish you all again

Bonne Saint-Jean!

And remind you to drink away, for us and for Tirsales too, who achieved a wonderful grade in his exam!

Bonne Saint-Jean to everyone in Quebec, and to everyone who's using it as an excuse to party

Currently I'm raising my tea mug, but that's only because drinking alcohol at work is frowned on!

Thank you Am!

Before I leave again to keep on partying, I'd like to post this video - a song by Les Colocs (The Roomies) with English lyrics. And, it's the story of a cat!

That band was iconic here, but ten years ago (not that long after recording this) the lead singer, André (Dédé) Fortin, committed suicide. Today's celebrations are greatly dedicated to him.

Cheers to all, ans Slainte to GeoffC!
