Saturday Photo: Bonne fête nationale, Happy St Jean Baptiste Day
Tomorrow is Quebec's Fête nationale, formerly known as St-Jean Baptiste Day. When I finish posting this, I'm going to put up our Quebec flag, which, of course, featured the fleur de lys, the blue iris. I do this not because I'm a Quebec nationalist, but because this is where we have chosen to live, and I want to signal that we (and other immigrants) should be included in all fête nationale celebrations.
