What is Saint Jean Baptiste Day?

Saint Jean Baptiste Day

The 24th of June of every year marks the Saint Jean Baptiste Day, which commemorates the baptizing of Jesus in the River Jordan on the hand of the Jewish pulpiteer, St. John. It is generally celebrated in Quebec, Canada.

St. Jean Baptiste Day –also known by various appellations, including Quebec’s National Holiday, la Saint Jean, and Fête Nationale du Québec– is a public holiday with a wide array of festivities that are arranged by the Mouvement national des Québécoises et des Québécois, such as sports tournaments, concerts, parades, and fireworks display, along with small communal celebrations, including picnics, yard sales, and barbecues. Furthermore, sundry church bells ring in commemoration of the day, and some small events –for example, funfairs and public dances– are held on the evening leading to the 24th of June.
