"La Saint-Jean, la Fête Nationale du Québec, St. Jean Baptiste Day ... it's a day of many names. But whatever you call it, it's one of Montreal's favorite holidays! A chance to honor Quebec's unique heritage, identity and history, June 24 is a statutory day for Montrealers and Quebecers of every creed, color and mother tongue. So if you feel blessed to be part of a culture that affords residents a language and lifestyle unlike anywhere else in North America, don't be shy to get out and celebrate. And since it's a statutory holiday, many businesses shut down for the day so don't forget to consult this list of what's open and closed on the Fête Nationale in Montreal, complete with activity suggestions."

I may travel elsewhere, but you know Dorothy said it best,
"There's no place like home"
Happy St. Jean Baptiste Day to Quebeccers everywhere!
