Another circle around the sun – 2016

Google – Year in Search 2016

Where’s the love? It’s everywhere. You just have to believe it. You just have to give it to recieve it. I wish that world would be a safer place right now. But we can all make it a safe place by believing in ourselves more, by loving others more, no matter their race, religion, sexuality and opinion.

The world can be a safer place for anyone!

All we need to do is to believe each other. And love each other more!

Here’s a hope for better 2017!

Spread love x

History of Christmas Trees and Presents

The Christmas Tree is an ancient symbol of life in the middle of the cold winter.  Romans decorated their houses with evergreen branches during the New Year, and ancient inhabitants of northern Europe cut evergreen trees and planted them in boxes inside their houses in wintertime.

German and Dutch immigrants brought their traditions of trees and presents to the New World in the early 1800s.

The image of happy middle-class families exchanging gifts around a tree became a powerful one for American authors and civic leaders who wished to replace older, rowdier, and more alcohol-fueled Christmas traditions—such as wassailing—with a more family-friendly holiday. This family-centered image was widely popularized by Clement Moore’s 1822 poem, known today as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas“. It also helped give us our modern picture of Santa Claus!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!
