Culture to Go – 2022 Holiday Edition

The SODEP and Érudit are once again partnering to bring you a holiday version of Culture to go. Each week until Christmas, discover a selection of articles inspired by this period of celebrations.

We suggest you start with the preparation of the festivities: from decorating the tree to buying gifts. Then it’s time to put on your skates or take an invigorating walk. Next, let’s meet up with the family to taste the many typical dishes of New Year’s Eve. And finally, fall back into youth by remembering the children’s movie classics.

Help yourself to a good hot chocolate and enjoy unwrapping our cultural advent calendar!

Happy reading!

Initiated in 2020, Culture to go aims to showcase the rich collection of SODEP member cultural magazines that are disseminated on Érudit.
