  • Today is Dr. I Have A Dream King´s birthday. Martin Luther King was a very significant man. Through him we learned we too are allowed to have a dream and to voice them. I rejoice in his words:

    I HAVE A DREAM!!!!

  • Today is said to be Winnie the Pooh day. Its opted to do the following:

    calls for an ample dose of sweet honey to be blended with a big boost of vital energy and life essence provided by the Sun. an old saying, 'When the day approaches noon, Hold the honey to the Sun, That the double gold may run, Shining together, mixed as one. Drink three spoonfuls, Then say this: 'Sun charge me, Gold serve me, Alchemy change me, Honey preserve me.'

    I prefer RHUM!!!!!!

  • Today is the National POP POP POP THE POPCORN. Yeppers.

    corn has played a pivotal role in Central and North American religions for thousands of years. The Mayan and the Native American Navajo civilizations believed that the first humans were actually created out of corn. In fact, the Mayans, Incans, Aztecs and every almost every American Indian ate corn because of the belief in the sacred nature of this veggie. They also wove it into their religious ceremonies, rites and rituals. The Corn Mother was one of the most widely worshipped symbols of fertility, eternity and resurrection across of a host of those same cultures. Blue corn is often considered to be the most sacred of all of the different dried corn kernels, although all diverse colored corns held sacred significance inside these pre-Columbian cultures. One old ritual from the Ozarks has to do with stopping hiccups. This tradition says that you should name three kernels of corn for three friends and put these into a container of water. Whenever you have the hiccups, hold this vessel above your head and the hiccups will disappear. Placing ears of red corn in baskets on the floor is believed to keep the home protected and safe while hanging dried ears of corn on the front door during early autumn days is known to bring both fortune and luck. Offer some corn outside today and say a prayer that this sacred staple will make your wish come true.

  • Hi all

    Today is Australia day

    On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. It's the day to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation. It's the day for us to re-commit to making Australia an even better place for the future.

    Australia Day, 26 January, is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788 .

    Though 26 January marks this specific event, today Australia Day celebrations reflect contemporary Australia: our diverse society and landscape, our remarkable achievements and our bright future. It also is an opportunity to reflect on our nation's history, and to consider how we can make Australia an even better place in future.

    Celebrations at the annual Australia Day Live concert in Canberra

    On Australia Day, over half of the nation’s population of 21 million attend either an organised community event, or get together with family and friends with the intention of celebrating our national day. Many more spend the public holiday relaxing with family and friends.

    Yet Australia Day is much more than barbeques and fireworks. It is more than another public holiday. It is more than the pride and excitement of new citizens who call themselves Australian for the first time on 26 January after being conferred citizenship.

    At its core, Australia Day is a day driven by communities, and the celebrations held in each town, suburb or city – unified by the celebration of what’s great about Australia and being Australian – are the foundation of its ongoing success.

    Hapy Australia day to all fellow Aussies oi oi oi !!!!!!!!!

  • Thank u for joining in Living to celebrate what each day is. HAPPY AUSSIE DAY ALL!!!!!

  • OK as u may have noticed at times i dont post. Well it has its reasons, like its claimed a neg day where the meaning is to b neg n black. I dont wanna encourage such at all. Other times the day we´re on has no special thing to it n the whats today is blank. Look for a new thread made by me CWB. It will be fun.

    And now to something completely different:


    Yes the day of one special flower.

    ancient Rome they were called 'Jove's Flowers' in homage to one of that civilization's favored deities. In Korea, young girls braid three carnations in their hair in order to have the ability to tell their future fortune, especially with getting lucky in love

    Deeper pink and lighter red carnations are said to symbolize a state of admiration or respect, while the deeper red variety represent true, abiding and, of course, lasting love. But striped carnations can signify a sense of confusion or regret, so stay away from them when building a bouquet for a loved one. Place two red carnations in a white vase anywhere inside the 'Relationship and Romance' area of your main floor and change them to two fresh ones every nine days for a total of three times, or 27 days. Inside that same time frame you should find a new spring in your step, bloom in your cheeks and plenty of suitors lining up who will leaf you breathless!

  • Today is what the ancient Celtic calendars is celebrated as 'Candlemas,'

    a day dedicated to Brigid, the Irish goddess of fire, inspiration, and ultimate and perfect healing. She represented this time of year when the darkness of winter is starting to give way to seeds of light. This is also when that same burgeoning light shines inspiration into your lives that will take root and grow. Some cultures claim that simply by symbolizing the light today you will bring bright illumination to every breath you take. One way to encourage the slowly waxing sunlight is to light a colored candle. Orange candles are said to be especially auspicious and energy impacting on this day, but any color will do the trick

  • Today is the CHINESE NEW YEAR.

    let's look at a few other Chinese customs, and traditions that surround the Chinese New Year! Prior to New Year's Day much time is spent cleaning the house, repaying at least one debt, and getting coiffed and couture'd, including buying new shoes, efforts expended to create the proverbial clean slate. Entryway doors are decorated with symbols that attract good fortune and luck. Red envelopes, known as 'Lai See' or 'Hung Bao,' are filled with coins or paper money and given away to family, friends and loved ones and are especially auspicious when given to small children. In fact, red is considered the most propitious color at this time of year and is often given by married couples to unmarried ones and to little children. The giving of money represents a wish for fortunes, abundance and wealth in the coming year. Flowers also hold a special significance at Chinese New Year, three of the most common being peach blossoms, peony and any sort of citrus tree. The blossoms or petals signify life, growth and prosperity as well as a life soaked in riches and honor! But the mack daddy of all Chinese New Year flowers is the bright red peony since it's believed that bringing that bloom into your home during the Chinese New Year fortnight will attract love and affection as well as much great fortune and outstanding opportunities and luck!
