A bit about Feng Shui

First, it is impossible to report just a bit about Feng Shui. It is a much involved metaphysical study that scrutinizes your home, the land around it and the relationship each individual occupant has to the present time, the evolving time, the time the home has endured and also the way energy is permitted into the home. Chi is observed to see how it reacts to the shapes, colours, elements and design of each individual room and the pathways that are created or blocked between them. You cannot…

About Family Day in Canada

Family Day is a Canadian statuary holiday in mid February that is a perfect break for winter weary Canadians. The provinces vary the dates slightly with many school boards arranging for the preceding Friday to be off for students. This extends the weekend for families with school age children. We in Ontario, usually have a long weekend with Valentine’s Day coinciding, somewhere in the mix. The intention is to celebrate Love. Family Love. Love of Coupledom and the families that have been born…

A bit about Epiphany

Revelation In Christianity, the epiphany refers to a realization that Christ is the son of God. Don’t confuse this date with the Orthodox Christmas, which is for Churches that follow the Julian calendar. The Gregorian calendar, which more accurately accounts for leap years is recognized by everyone else. Orthodox Christians follow the first testament of the bible not the second testament or any other versions. In 2014, Epiphany landed on January 6th, Orthodox Christmas on the 7th. Protestant…

Auld Lang Syne! The New Year Moniker

Scottish Poet, Robbie Burns wrote “ Auld Lang Syne” in 1788 and it was then put to music. There was a little controversy that Burns adapted it, or collected phrasing, from a ballad written in 1711 by James Watson. This melancholy song is often sang at funerals, graduations and as a fairwell, but most of the world will recognize it as the song - sang, at the stroke of midnight, on New Year’s Eve. For the sake of old times.... in several different versions, has become a traditional reflection…

A bit about Traditional Christmas Foods

Serving Christmas Pulla I’m from Northern Ontario. Rural Sudbury, as a matter of fact. Pretty much everyone I knew was Native, Finn or French Canadian… or a combination of the the three. There were other people- but I didn’t know them. Or at least, I didn’t know them well. I’ve been a resident of Southern Ontario for (gasp) 39 years, been with my partner who is French Canadian for 24 years. Did I adapt all his cultural traditions from Montreal, Quebec? … NOPE. Well, some - but it’s all about…

Christmas; scholarly debate, traditional & commercial ritual

For millions, Christmas is a religious experience. Jesus Christ is commemorated. His birth or his conception. For those of olde order, the winter solstice marked a perfect time to bring some celebration to people before the deep sleep of winter, sets in. Evidence shows that the two merged in tradition and ritual. The yule log, the pine tree lit with candles, the feasting, the festivities. Life, death, family connections and then Santa Claus or St Nick - got thrown into the mix. Christmas…

Mom shapes Christmas Tradition

It’s the end of the year, it’s cold and the grand finale is being planned and executed. I’m the "Mom the Matriarch" and there’s a certain awe in that revelation. My Children are now young adults. My own birth Mother and Mother in law do not - will not - have not been the Matriarch for the Holiday season in decades and my Partner and I, have realized that we are and always have been, the ones our offspring look upon to shape our family’s Christmas tradition. I didn’t always realize I was the…
