25 December 2012. It’s Time for Réveillon! Feast Ye Bounteously…

00 reveillon. 25.12.12

******

Québécoise chanteuse Julie Dassylva sings an old Québec and French fave, Petit papa Noël

******

Minuit, Chrétiens sung by… the Red Army Chorus!

******

Here’s a more traditional rendering of Minuit, Chrétiens sung by the Quebecker French pop singer Bruno Pelletier… he’s from Ville de Québec, in the heartland of French Canada

______________________________

It’s now about 03.00 EST, which means that all the Quebeckers got back home from Midnight Mass about an hour-and-a-half ago. Trust me… the party’s still on, and it’s gonna roll on till four in the morning, at least. Grand-père has given his blessing to the family, and mama has brought out the bûche de Noël for the dessert after the dinner, but everyone knows that it isn’t a REAL réveillon unless the tourtière is on the table! Yes, I’ve attended a réveillon… and, yes, les Québécois et Québécoises do know how to party hearty. My head knows!
