Earth Day

April 22, 2017 0

Earth Day is a day celebrated to acknowledge the importance of Mother Earth. Celebrated annually on the 22nd of April, Earth Day started back in 1970 when Gaylord Nelson a senator from Wisconsin started to get worried about the rate of industrialisation and the carelessness of people towards the environment. Over 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day to cement the importance of that day, as of today over a billion people celebrates Earth Day all over the world. Over the years as industrialisation take place, we humans have done many things which depleted the earth's resources. Deforestation is happening everyday to make space for buildings, condos, and malls. River are destroyed due to industrial wastes. Ice in the poles are melting due to the rise in Earth's temperature. We have dug ourselves into a huge ditch, one that we can get out if we all act now. Small steps such as planting trees, turning off unnecessary lights, reducing petrol usage are always helpful if everyone decides to all join in. A single tree planted might not help so much, but when billions of trees are planted that would certainly help. If we choose to ignore it...

Decorating eggs, egg hunts, and eating chocolate eggs are definitely fun and engaging ways to celebrate Easter.

Easter is a christian tradition that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The word "Easter" had a german root which is Ēostre, the name of the ancient German goddess who is associated with rebirth, spring, and fertility. Now that we know how where the word Easter originated from how about the eggs and rabbit? Well Ēostre had a thing for rabbit, some legends claimed that she had the head of a rabbit. Which made sense since bunnies are known for their ability to reproduce which symbolizes fertility. On some of the twists myths, it was claimed that Ēostre turned a bird into a rabbit which explains the eggs. However in other myths eggs came from pagan celebration in spring which symbolize a new life. Easter does not fall on a particular...

A History of Valentine’s Day

February 3, 2017 0

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day? Chocolate, roses and romance? Many would be surprised to learn that originally, Valentine’s Day had little to do with any of these things. In fact, the day of love was named in honour of Saint Valentine, an ancient Roman priest from the third century. Although there are several stories around Saint Valentine, a popular belief is that he was imprisoned for helping young couples wed. The Roman Emperor Claudius II had outlawed marriage for young men as he believed that unmarried soldiers fought better than those who were married. Realising the injustice of this, Saint Valentine secretly performed marriage ceremonies for both young lovers and Christians, who were also being persecuted at the time. Although Valentine’s Day gets its name from the famous saint, it did not turn into a day of romance until the Middle Ages. During this time, many believed that birds began to look for their mates in mid-February or specifically, on February 14. Thus, Valentine’s Day as the recognised day of love was born. For anyone looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day with loved ones, whether that be with family members, friends or...
