Christmas Stories

November 17, 2022 - January 08, 2023

The holiday of Christmas contains a multitude of material and social traditions as well as a wide variety of characters that contribute to the magic of this time of the year.

But where do the main traditions that we know about in Quebec come from? This is the question that the exhibition Christmas Stories(s) attempts to answer for a dozen traditions that have shaped our holiday season for several generations. And because Christmas rhymes – not really! with children for almost 200 years now, two extraordinary and dynamic guides will accompany the youngest in their discoveries. Indeed, Falala, a very nice fox article, and his companion Belzy, a funny little goblin, spend the holidays at the Mhist and will be happy to allow children to learn more, and independently, on the subject.


Speaking of Falala and Belzy, they offer families a book of discoveries, accessories for a photobooth and a contest. Yes! Yes! Lots of fun and a chance to win a gift box filled with beautiful regional products, all in a bright, warm and playful atmosphere that will please all age groups, young and old.


The exhibition is presented in the American-Biltrite Hall from November 17, 2022 to January 8, 2023.
