Since the first colonizers of New France stepped foot on Québec's shores, the Québécois have been gathering, before Lent, to eat, drink and party through the hardships of winter. This custom endured in the form of Carnaval, an 1894 reinvention of this long-standing tradition. Today, Québec's Winter Carnival is the world's largest winter carnival and third on the list of top carnivals, just after Rio and New Orleans.

Kerouac-Quotes 24
A rosy-cheeked toddler, with curling strawberry blond hair, is propped in a coffee-colored recliner. His chubby arm clutches an orange striped stuffed lion. I widen my eyes, grin big and say, "Cheese!". He flashes tiny perfect white teeth, squints his lushly lashed green eyes and squeals, "TEEEEZE!"
