Saint-Jean-Baptiste

Non bisogna mai ascoltare i fiori. Basta guardarli e respirarli.
—  Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Antoine Jean Baptiste Marie Roger de Saint-Exupéry

Tonight we celebrate Quebec’s National Holiday, La Saint-Jean Baptiste! (which is on June 24th)

Which a lot of Quebecers will celebrate by being uncivilized drunks on public spaces wearing a ridiculous hat and/or a flag, listening to songs by Quebecois artists and dancing around HUUUUGE bonfires.

I personally like to celebrate by not going to work the next day because most things are closed.

Bonne Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste!

I didn’t get around to doing them this year because I’m working on something else for next week, but here’s a picture of my “traditional” National Holiday celebratory nails. They’re a little tacky but they impress drag queens and make nice conversation starters with drunk strangers.
