For the past few months, I have been exploring when many national holidays began, like Mother’s Day and the different Mother’s Day traditions around the world. Falling on 9 May, Mother’s Day is recognized in many countries as an opportunity to celebrate the life of women who hold a special place in our society. It is not only for women who have born children but also for women who have played a significant role in a child’s life.

What Easter means to me
What Easter means to me conjures up images of love and feelings of warmth. As I prepare for Easter weekend, these feelings start to envelop my entire being. When we continue to hear a story repeatedly, it starts to lose its impact and somewhere along the way, any emotions from the story becomes diluted. The Easter and Christmas story with Jesus Christ at the centre doesn’t do that for me. Every time that I hear the story of Christ’s birth, death and resurrection, it invokes feelings of warmth, humbleness, giddiness, exhilaration, and expectation.

Virginia Beach Shooting
The continuous news feeds of the Virginia Beach shooting flared within me a need to connect with you. Reading the different news articles, my heart cried out for the young men ranging in ages 18 to 22, the victims, officers, and community overall.

Why do we celebrate International Day of Happiness?
We celebrate International Day of Happiness to recognize the importance of happiness in everyone’s lives. In a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly in July 2012, the day of 20 March would be observed as the International Day of Happiness. The Assembly’s goal was to recognize “the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world”. This observance was “initiated by Bhutan, a country which recognized the value of national happiness over national income since the early 1970s and famously adopted the goal of Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product”.
