RED NOSE DAY – THURSDAY 25TH MAY 2017

RED NOSE DAY – THURSDAY 25TH MAY 2017

Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc.

It started in the UK in 1988 and that year the BBC broadcasted a TV programme where several celebrities encouraged people to donate. The icon of this public charity campaign is a red nose. The campaign brings people together to have fun, raise money and change the lives of kids who need our help the most. Red Nose Day is on a mission to end child poverty – one nose at a time. Money raised supports programs that ensure children in need around the world are safe, healthy and educated.

Today Red Nose Day is a worldwide well-known charity event, so if you see people wearing red noses this Thursday 25 May 2017 you’ll know the reason why.

Vernal Equinox 2017

Vernal Equinox 2017

This year the vernal equinox, the spring equinox or simply March equinox, started on 19th March. The March equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. This happens on March 19, 20 or 21 every year.

But enough with the “interesting” facts. All around the world spring is celebrated with festivals and holidays. In the Northern Hemisphere spring is a time of rebirth, of change (in the colours of mother nature, in your wardrobe colours too 😉 ). Personally, I see spring as the starting point to think in the warmer and longer days to come. I was born in spring and I cherish this season of the year as my favourite one. I’ll leave you here with some spring quotes to pass on this feeling:

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. ~Proverb

Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”  ~Robin Williams

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go. ~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe

Every spring is the only spring — a perpetual astonishment. ~Ellis Peters

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

 

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY 2017

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY 2017

Today is Saint Patrick’s Day and, although it’s Ireland national day, it’s celebrated around the world. But how and where can we celebrate it and what do we know about it?

New York holds the largest Saint Patrick’s day parade in the world with over 150.000 people taking part in it. In Chicago the river is dyed with green dye to commemorate the green shamlock the Saint used to explain the Holy Trinity (Father-Son-Spirit). Green is also the colour some worldwide landmarks turn in today to celebrate: the London Eye lights become green; the Giza Pyramids are lit up with huge green spot lights from the bottom; the statue in Corcovado mountain in Brazil also turns green today in celebration; in Japan, Argentina and even in the Caribbean Saint Patrick’s Day is either bank holiday or is celebrated with parades and green crowds on the streets.

Saint Patrick’s Day became an official bank holiday in Ireland in 1903 and nowadays is a 4-day festival with parades, concerts and fireworks.
