Regional Characteristics

As in France, regional events celebrating Christmas have become customary here over time. Among the more interesting customs, the international exhibition of crèches in Rivière-Éternité is distinguished by the "Christmas magic" it has been able to evoke through this single theme of Christmas while giving it both "local colour" and international scope.

Another original idea is that of celebrating Christmas at the height of summer in a vacation resort. The Domaine de Rouville is generally considered to be the first to institute the new tradition of the Camperís Christmas in Quebec. This practice has quickly spread to other campsites and trailer parks both in the region and throughout the whole province.
