Why do we love going apple picking so much?

The pandemic created a new tradition, that of picking different fruits and vegetables, depending on the season. These activities may seem trivial, but they bring us back to the essential, communion with nature.

Here’s why we’ll keep going, even if the pandemic ends!

Because it’s delicious. Indeed, nothing tastes as good as freshly picked fruits and vegetables.

Because our kids learn so much through this activity, where food comes from, respect for nature… and motor skills… the learning in nature is endless!

Because it allows us to connect with nature. The fresh air, the landscapes, the plants, all the elements are gathered for a connection with our environment. This moment of connection allows us to live fully in the present moment and forget the sources of stress, the time of a breath.

Because then we can cook as a family!

Cooking is also a wonderful family activity that allows us to strengthen our family ties, learn and have fun! All while creating a bit of a mess, of course!

Because by picking these foods themselves, our kids are motivated to taste and eat them!

It’s magical, we don’t even have to hide the fruits and vegetables in soups!

Will you be going to the pumpkins this fall?

A fight involving the former captain of the Laval Rocket creates quite a debate!

The Pittsburgh Penguins played their first exhibition game on Sunday against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and Xavier Ouellet took advantage of the opportunity by throwing down the gloves against 6-foot-4 Joshua Dunne .

The former Laval Rocket captain conceded 4 inches to the Jackets’ behemoth, but as TVA Sports’ Twitter manager rightly pointed out, that didn’t stop Ouellet from serving him three blows.

Unsurprisingly, under the tweet of this fight, many fans were very vocal about the fights in the NHL. Let’s just say that some were actually quite incisive.

“Thank you @TVASports not with you that we will decrease the culture of violence in field hockey! When will there be a top 10 of Dave Morissette’s fights?” –Maxime Simard

You can leave your car at home since many bus lines will be free to get to the site thanks to a partnership with the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL). You can visit the RTL website for more information.

In order to help participants find their way around the various activities, Lumifest has joined the FEST application, which includes several other Quebec festivals. Via this application, it will be possible to consult the site map, discover the artists present and obtain all the information related to the event.

Ultra festive evenings will be offered to participants thanks to the collaboration of DJs who will ignite the outdoor dance floor of the Dancefloor Desjardins. Themes are proposed for each evening: Guitar Hero on September 29th, Jump Around on September 30th and Everybody Dance Now on October 1st. It’s a promise! An open-air karaoke will also be organized near St. Mark’s Park where courageous amateur singers will be able to sing along with the spectators. The lyrics of the songs will be projected on a giant screen, so 90’s nostalgics will have fun singing the hits of the era!

She reportedly asked him to stop repeatedly since it was causing her irritation:

It got to the point where I was constantly irritated by that baby oil because it attacks your pH, so you’re constantly going to get yeast infections,” she spews.

Well, people use baby oil on babies.
