Bonne Saint-Jean à nos amis québecois! ⚜️

An item specifically for today from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.

Bonne Saint-Jean à tous!
Bonne Fête nationale à tous les Québécois et Québécoises de la part du programme d’Études canadiennes de l’université de Californie Berkeley!
Celebrated on June 24, the Fête nationale, or La Saint-Jean, is the national holiday of Québec. The festival dates to 1834, when Québec patriotes, inspired by Irish-Canadian St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, chose the Feast of St. John the Baptist as a day to celebrate the unique culture and heritage of the people of Québec. The tradition continues 187 years later, inviting Quebeckers of all backgrounds to celebrate their love of their home province.
