Our Wall of Holiday Memories

We’re a big family of more than 550, which makes for quite a few stories to tell. With the festive season fast upon us, we’d like to share some of our cherished holiday memories and take a moment to thank you for your confidence in our team.

Happy Holidays!

My favourite traditions are ones that involve food… So Christmas baking was definitely my favourite part of the holidays!

Marie-Jacqueline and her sister Myriam in front of the Christmas tree and the imposing crib. It was customary to move the Magi a little bit every day until they arrived in front of the barn on January 6. Baby Jesus, meanwhile, was placed between Mary and Joseph on the morning of December 25.

Wearing sunglasses on Christmas morning is always a good way to announce a trip to Disney World to the kids!

Christmas morning tradition: opening our presents in our pjs and slippers! Thank you, Santa, for the amazing record player that was waiting for me under the tree!

Alexandra has shown her pride as a Montreal Canadiens fan since the age of 2, even wearing her dad’s oversized Habs t-shirt on Christmas!

What I remember most from my childhood Christmases is time spent with family – we are 7 children. Traditions and love are what made it special – waking up at 2 am to share a meal and open gifts made it magical. Thanks Mom & Dad.

Looking at this picture, it’s hard to say what’s most outdated: the old TV stand, my “Pierre Cardin” turtleneck or my new toy Jeep? Gotta love Christmas!

Forget dolls! Stéphanie was visibly very happy to receive her first pair of skis for Christmas in 1984!

My sister and I were always very excited to get up before dawn and open our Christmas gifts… We also got up in the middle of the night with a flashlight to see what Santa put under the tree!
