Je me demande si ca vous tentes egalement, chers Gens du Pays, de celebrer la Ste-Jean ensemble cette annee, dans une ville de notre chere patrie d'adoption. Peut-etre Seoul? Le 24 tombe un vendredi mais le lendemain permettrait a ceux ne vivant pas a Seoul (comme moi!) de se rentre a la capitale pour la fete! J'attends vos suggestions...

Gens du Pays,
C'est a votre tour,
De vous laissez parler d'amour,

I thought it was called Fête National now or at least "get drunk and break the windows of a Quebec city KFC/Ville du Poulet to show I'm a true separatist"?

It's interesting to see how wanting to celebrate something that only honors something and doesn't insult others leads to many racist comments. Further proof of the incredible insecurity of most Canadians. Pathetic. I don't get riled up over Canada Day, or an ethnic minority wanting to celebrate their culture. I thought Canada was about diversity, multi-culturalism as we say. If you really want to quash this "separatist insurgency", why not celebrate the ONLY reason you are not American? Finish this "two solitudes" business now and join your Canadian brothers....I wonder, do you have a problem with St-Patrick's Day? They sure like to flash their cultural heritage in your face, don't they? Don't worry, we drink just as much on Ste-Jean...

My point exactly. Canadians need to cease all these petty regional rivalries. In the end, we're all Canadians.

Bonne Ste-Jean a tous les Quebecois! Et en honneur de cela, une chanson pour vous tous:

"Yas-tu d'la biere icitte,
Yas-tu d'la biere icitte?
Si yas pas d'biere icitte,
moi j'crisse mon camp d'icitte!

Y'as-tu d'la femme icitte?
Y'as tu d'la femme icitte?
Si yas pas d'femme icitte,
Moi j'crisse mon camp d'icitte!"

Ps, je viens d'ecouter les episodes 1 a 3 de Le Coeur a ses Raisons et maudit que Labreche est drole!

Bon je vise dans un baril vide ici sur Dave's je le sais mais je vous souhaites tout de meme une superbe Ste-Jean!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vive le Quebec!!!!!!

I've never heard of this holiday, but thanks! 1/16 of my ancestors were wild Indians from Quebec... though i myself am from le Maine. Did you ever organize a party? I'd go for a little french talking get together.
