History pieces mid-holiday

The Centre d’histoire piece this weekend tells us about Hôtel Péloquin in Ahuntsic, where winter sportsmen used to congregate to hold snowshoe and sled races.

The Gazette has a few more seasonal things, including a Boxing Day sale at Sam the Record Man in 1983.

Radio-Canada looked back to World War II, soldiers who were able to come home for the holidays and some who were not.
