Pick The Day

I like Audrey Hepburn. I love all of the things she said over the years before her death. I think Audrey Hepburn was a person who learn to see life as good. We all need to see the good and not the bad in our day to day situations. What can we find that is good in a bad moment? How can we turn it around? What is it teaching us? How can we avoid it in the future? I hate that the media always seem to show us the bad that is going on in the world. Kinda leave us feeling negative most of the time. There are so many good things and good people. I bet you are one of the good people.

Find the Good in Your Day!!!



Halloween October 31

Soon Trick or Treaters will knock on your door for the entertainment of showing you how creative their costumes are and for you to reward them with candy treats. Yummy! I must admit that it brings a smile to my face to see the treaters standing proud in their costumes, especially the little ones. So precious!!!

Halloween is celebrated with family, friends and sometimes co-workers. Some communities hold large Halloween events. These events are mostly planned on October 31 or in the weekends before and after this date. Adults may celebrate by watching horror films, holding costume parties or creating haunted houses or graveyards. I watched a few yesterday and was amazed at how what I use to think was so scary was actually very funny. I watched the Chucky series and Leprechaun. Fun!

Halloween is not an official holiday. Government offices and businesses are open as usual and public transportation services run on a regular schedules. Make sure you keep a careful lookout for children who are unaccustomed to being out on the street after dark. If they are wearing dark costumes or masks, they may not be easy to see. They may be so excited and dart out unexpectedly from between vehicles or behind bushes. So be on the look out for the small creates of Halloween that lurk in the night!

How it began? Halloween originated as a pagan festival in parts of Northern Europe, particularly around what is now the United Kingdom. Many European cultural traditions hold that Halloween is a time when magic is most potent and spirits can make contact with the physical world. In Christian times, it became a celebration of the evening before All Saints' Day ... also celebrated in many areas of the U.S., including where there are large Roman Catholic populations in honor of all saints. Immigrants from Scotland and Ireland brought the holiday to the United States.

The Commercialization of Halloween started in the 1900s, when postcards and die-cut paper decorations were produced. Halloween costumes started to appear in stores in the 1930s and the custom of 'trick-or-treat' appeared in the 1950s. The types of products available in Halloween style increased with time. Now the holiday is a very profitable holiday for the manufacturers of costumes, yard decorations and of course candy.

There you have it. A little knowledge of Halloween. 
Have a Happy Halloween and don't forget to BE SAFE!!!!


Sunday's Wisdom

An abundance of wisdom in the text above. How many times have you said yes when you wanted to say no? I've done it many times and regretted it because it was something I really, really didn't want to do. However, I'm learning to say no more often to the things that are not right for me to do and guess what .... the world didn't fall apart and end, my true friends didn't desert me, and I didn't drop dead and my health is still good!

Columbus Day In The U.S.

Columbus Day is a public holiday in the United States that commemorates the voyage of Christopher Columbus to the Americas in 1492. Federal observation of the holiday began in 1937 but Americans have been observing the anniversary of the voyage since colonial times.
While the public holiday affords non-essential federal employees and schoolchildren the opportunity to have a day off, virtually no businesses close in observation of the holiday. Many states have decided to remove the holiday from the list of paid holidays that state employees are allowed. There is no mail delivery and banks are closed for business on the holiday.

Today, few festivities are held for Columbus Day although, during the month of October, schools may dedicate lessons to teaching about Christopher Columbus. Most townships and cities across the United States do not have any formal celebrations in place.
Some states have opted not to observe the holiday at all. It is said that that the first Europeans to sail across the Atlantic may have been Viking explorers from Scandinavia. In any case, Alaska, Hawaii and South Dakota do not recognize Columbus Day. Some citizens of the United States argue that Christopher Columbus and his crew were cruel to the indigenous people when they arrived in the Americas.

On Monday, October 6 2014 the Seattle City Council voted to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous People’s Day to honor the culture, heritage, and contribution of Native Americans. The holiday will continue to be celebrated on the second Monday in October.
South Dakota celebrates Native American Day instead of Columbus Day, while Hawaii has chosen to celebrate a holiday known as Discoverers’ Day as a tribute to the Polynesians who discovered the islands.

Because of Columbus’s Italian heritage and Catholic faith, many Italian-American people observe the holiday by attending church services or parades on the holiday.
Columbus Day was originally held on 12 October every year to coincide with the anniversary of Columbus’s arrival. In 1971, the date of the holiday was changed to the second Monday in October.

Have a great weekend.
