LET'S CELEBRATE !!!

HRH TICKLEBEAR THE 1RST
proudly salutes
the 400th anniversary
of the birth
of the quebecois nation.
400 hundred years ago,
samuel the champlain
founded the city of quebec
in the name of the french king,
thus establishing the first
settlement of frenchspeaking people
on the american continent.
this nation has thrived,
despite adversities & being
surrounded by the english,
& still gives a vibrant testimony
to its culture
& its tenacity to retain
its own character.
all year long,
but mainly in the summer,
(check out the website),
there will be festivities
to commemorate the 400th anniversary
of our capital,
& we can only rejoice
at such a prospect.
to one & all,
welcome to quebec city
&
join us in its celebration!!!
:)~
*******************
on a sidenote:
some opposition was voiced
when it was suggested
that lillibeth 2,
queen of england,
be invited to the ceremonies.
my opinion:
i think she should be invited.
we cannot ignore the fact
that the history of
the french & english people
is intermingled.
as thus,
we could invite her,
not in a gesture of submission,
but as a gracious gesture
to show that the 2 "solitudes"
can coexist peacefully.
just a thought!!...

  1. À ce que je vois, tu as gardé "juste un peu de gris"
    HA,HA,HA!
    Ben drôle, ta photo!

    Ouais, ça s'annonce toute une année à Québec. Mais à mon avis, ce sont les résidents de la capitale qui vont le plus en profiter...
    Moi qui aime y aller, je vais attendre en 2009 ; je sens que les hotelliers vont nous attendre $$$$$.

  2. effectivement,
    ca pue l'opportunisme.
    mais vu que c'est juste 2 1/2 heures de route, peut-etre un aller-retour???
    moi,
    ca dependra de plusieurs choses,
    mais le show de celine sur les plaines d'abraham, ca me plait...
    non, je n'irai pas voir la "bottine souriante" ou autre chose du genre...
    :D~
