New Brunswick Christmas with Tourtiere

New Brunswick rounds up our east coast holiday tour. So much CHARACTER (it’s a little embarrassing.) We hate to boast, but where else can you find such a unique blend of Mi’Kmaq, Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet), Acadian, Brayon, Scottish, Irish and Loyalist flavour that make this land a cultural wonder? New Brunswick is the snowiest province on the East Coast of Canada, and along with lots of the white stuff comes over 1000 kilometres of groomed trails and a Northern Odyssey that you will talk about for years to come. Come for our jaw-dropping NATURAL WONDERS.Come back for another unforgettable day. There just aren’t enough minutes in the hour to experience all of the extraordinary moments that make up a New Brunswick day. From the exhilarating heights of the Bay of Fundytides, dubbed One of the Marine Wonders of the World, to the magnificent white sand dunes of Bouctouche, New Brunswick is home to some of the most spectacular Natural Wonders in the Maritimes. But we’re also renowned for our lively cities, diverse outdoor adventure, and eclectic blend of cultures. Add a dash of Acadian joie de vivre to the mix, and you have the makings of a truly unique Maritime experience. So whether you want to enjoy our alluring bluffs and beaches, lazy rivers, charming covered bridges and picturesque towns while you kayak, hike, dance the night away, or simply settle in to a well-worn beach chair, is really up to you. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without tourtiere and pond hockey. New Brunswickers Love Hockey… … and it shows! Every year, Plaster Rock plays host to pick-up teams from across North America and Europe to compete in the “World Pond Hockey Championship”. Here's the classic tourtiere recipe to try. Serve it at midnight on Christmas Eve.

I want a ride on the horse driven sleigh. That looks so fabulous and romantic. My favorite photo in this group is the black and white of the kids on the porch. As a photographer this screams to me, "There's NOTHING like film. NOTHING."

Tourtiere looks interesting. I assume the pie is the tourtiere. I'll have to search for a recipe.
