Actually, despite the politicians who have tried to alter this, it is still ''la St-Jean'' and is for ALL French Canadians from coast to coast.

Thank you for the illuminating facts Danielle. (and for a few French Canadian descendants honoring their ancestry. )

Bonne Fête! Then it is the same as Danish midsummer celebrations: Sankt Hans aften. Where Sankt Hans is the same person as Saint-Jean. And Swedish midsummer is celebrated at the same time.
