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!
