Isn't it the same day than a Saint? I thought it was like Sainte-Anne or Sainte-Marie, i remember that it was an ecclésiastique who choosed the day, but i always thought that most Acadians would refer to it as the patron name of the day. But it's interesting that you call it that way, no bs, just call a horse a horse.

In NS, or would I say NE... it's a big day for those around the Clare area...

I'll have a stiff drink off the turkey for Evang-e-line from the Mar-i-times ce soir.

Well in catholic church, its the Fete Notre-Dame de l'Assomption. The acadians, being a pious folk, took this as their national holiday. It was decided in Memramcook NB (where Im getting married) in 1881 that this day would be associated with the National Holiday of the acadiens.

http://cyberacadie.com/index.php?/sy...ssomption.html

I just learned that and wouldnt be surprised not many of my brothers and sisters here know that either.

Spread the word....


Oh and sorry if the 1755 reference in my initial post offended anyone...It was just to be a subtle reminder that we're still alive as a people and that we are as strong as ever despite what happened in those dark years.

I know that Franco-Ontarians celebrate the Saint-Jean Baptiste, does the Acadians celebrate it too? I doubt it, but the article you posted made me "wonder" (not sure of the correct spelling of that word).

I promoted a show with Loco Locass at the Universite de Moncton and these guys were cool enough to open up for them at next to nothing (Although they were known as Jacobus et Maleco at the time)...

And your replacement of 'vraiment' with 'right' is annoying too. "C'était right fun" instead of "C'était vraiment l'fun"?!

Sigh.
