Window on Canada: Halloween in Quebec's Eastern Townships



I spotted this couple in Dunham, Quebec several autumns ago while visiting La Belle Province's Eastern Townships. I'm not sure who or what they were representing, but to me, they're Mr. & Mrs. Halloween!

Also in Dunham is Quebec's oldest vineyard, Domaine des Cotes d’Ardoise. It's located along Quebec's Wine Route (La Route des Vins), created in 2003.

If you're a dog lover, and Fifi or Fido goes with you everywhere, here's a list of dog friendly motels in the Eastern Townships.

My mother, who was born in 1936, grew up in Quebec. She remembers that for Hallowe'en they had to perform at each door a song or dance. I'm not sure if this was standard across North America but it does seem that no one requests that anymore.
