Happy Diwali, The Festival Of Lights
Diwali is the Indian “festival of lights”—a holiday that celebrates the triumph of good over evil. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on October 24. Though technically religious, it’s also become a cultural event in North America that’s celebrated with sweets and special foods.
To all my friends celebrating, have a blessed time of light, love, peace and community.
Six Word Story
Gathering to celebrate can be fun.
Happy Rosh Hashanah – #RoshHashanah
Rosh Hashanah , the Jewish new year, is a fall holiday, taking place at the beginning of the month of Tishrei , which is actually the seventh month of the Jewish year (counting from Nisan in the spring). It is both a time of rejoicing and of serious introspection, a time to celebrate the completion of another year while also taking stock of one’s life.
To all my friends celebrating may this be a time of blessing and contemplation. May this be a year of new beginnings and love for all.
Happy Chinese New Year – Happy Lunar New Year #chinesenewyear #lunarnewyear
Chinese New Year, known in China as the Spring Festival and in Singapore as the Lunar New Year, is a holiday on and around the new moon on the first day of the year in the traditional Chinese calendar. This calendar is based on the changes in the moon and is only sometimes changed to fit the seasons of the year based on how the Earth moves around the sun. Because of this, Chinese New Year is never on January 1. It moves around between January 21 and February 20.
To all those around the world celebrating today may it be a year of blessings, prosperity, love, peace, and grace.
Happy Diwali To My Friends Around The World
Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.”
To my friends celebrating all around the world I hope its a time of blessings, grace and peace.
Two Things Happening Today – Cinco De Mayo and Kentucky Derby Day
There are two important cultural events happening today in America.
First its Cinco De Mayo, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862.
Second it’s The Kentucky Derby horse race in Louisville. This is the 144th annual Running Of The Roses. Justify is the odds on favorite to win today.
So it will be interesting to see the fusion celebrations going on today. Cinco De Derby or Derby De Mayo. Either way there will be a lot of food and drink consumed by those who are enjoying themselves.
