Saint Jean Baptiste Day, held annually on June 24, is the feast day of St John the Baptist, a Jewish preacher who baptized Jesus in the River Jordan. It is a day of celebration in Quebec and other areas of French Canada. Saint Jean Baptiste Day is also known as “la Saint-Jean”, “St John the Baptist Day”, “Fête nationale du Québec” and “Quebec’s National Holiday”.
Wishing all my Quebec readers a Happy St Jean Baptiste Day today.
