We wanted a really special photo for the front page of the last issue of the QCT before the holidays, so we contacted the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in late November to see if our photographer Jay Ouellet could take a photo of their charming crêche or nativity scene. We learned that it would be set up during the annual Christmas pageant on the morning of Sunday, Dec. 17.

I guess by this late date in December your shopping is finished, the gifts are wrapped and under the tree or still hidden in the basement cupboard. The house is clean and the Christmas groceries are just waiting to dance together in the pot.
No? I know the feeling. It’s my life’s story as I write these lines.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone at CEGEP Champlain–St. Lawrence Campus who donated money and non-perishable goods but also those who also gave their time in volunteering for the packing and delivery of hampers for the Community Christmas Hamper Campaign.

Did you see the Christmas halo around the sun?

On Saturday, Dec. 16, about 2:40 p.m., a beautiful ring appeared around the sun, then the light became very bright and it seemed as if the sun had twins. This spectacle was seen all around the Quebec City area.
