Tradition

The New Year bring you abundant happiness

If the word 'levee' doesn’t immediately invoke images of New Year's Day celebrations, do not fret! You are not alone! For many of us the morning after New Year's Eve is a time to rest and regroup, but some Canadians get out of bed with what pep they can muster and strike out into their community. New Year's Levees are a time-honoured tradition in Nova Scotia, an opportunity to exchange good will with local officials and community members, while enjoying the hosts' refreshments.
