MOTHERING SUNDAY

In the UK, Mothering Sunday is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, three weeks before Easter Sunday. As with the North American Mother’s Day (held in May), it is a day for honouring mothers with cards, presents, and/or a special meal (the most special aspect being that she doesn’t have to prepare it.) Originally […]

IT’S MAPLE SYRUP TIME

Though delayed by an exceptionally harsh winter, sap will soon be flowing from certain types of maple trees in Eastern Canada and the Northeastern United States, sap that can be harvested and turned into maple syrup. Sugar maples have the highest sugar content (2%), but the sap from black, red, silver, and ash leafed maple […]

HISTORIC SMALL STEPS

People who help make history don’t always do it as quickly as they’d like.

It was also illegal for them to […]

The swallows leave Capistrano around October 23rd (San Juan Day), and travel six thousand miles to Goya, Corrientes in Argentina to spend the winter there. […]

DOUBLE CELEBRATION

Originally just the feast day of Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick’s Day is now a day for celebrating Irish culture in many parts of the world with dances, parades, feasting, and of course, ‘the wearing of the green’. Holi is the Hindu Festival of Colours and takes place on the last full moon of the […]
