I had Google Translate the words to the first song. I know the real story behing the lyrics but the translation leaves much to be desired.

i love this !

so pretty in the garden
Happy Acadia Day, Mary!
I LOVE the sound of the voices, the drums and the backing, on the first video. But have to admit that even after reading the translation I have NO Earthly idea what she's singing about!
Celebrate your heart out, Mary. Happy Acadian Day.

Happy Acadian Day to you, Mary. When I saw those colours and knowing Canada is bi-lingual. I knew it had something to do with the French heritage. Enjoy the festivities.

Happy Acadian Day! I am not informed about the Acadian Day in Canada. Yes, I see the French tricolore.

We’ll celebrate and enjoy, it is good to learn about other countries celebrations. I had to laugh once in Florence in Italy when I heard an American tourist asking her Italian guide if they celebrate Thanksgiving day. He was very puzzled by the question.
Special days are worth celebrating - enjoy.

All news to me, Mary; not an event I've heard of before. Is it a public holiday?

I had to go and look up what Acadians are. So, that pole is La Tricolor. Enjoy celebrations.

By the way - if that is piece of your garden - it looks great.
