What do the George-Étienne-Cartier House in Montreal and the Dauphine Redoubt in Quebec City have in common?
These two historic sites hosted numerous receptions and Christmas celebrations.
It was during the Victorian period (1837-1901) that the festivities changed and shaped our current traditions.
The activity will immerse students in 19th century bourgeois holiday customs and practices.
We invite you to consult the following link, where you will find Christmas card templates to print for your students.
