One of my fondest memories of Christmas in Gaspé are the Christmas Eve family gatherings at Aunt Eva’s. Each Christmas Eve the Boyle Family members (Dorothy, Emily, Eva, Ernest, Eileen, Greta, Alice and Arthur) who happened to be in Gaspé would meet at Eva’s home for this annual Christmas Eve celebration . It was truly a family gathering because those celebrating would extend beyond the immediate family. All nephews, nieces, cousins, girl and boy friends would be welcome as well.
