This should be a thread where all of us, from all over the world, can celebrate the holidays coming up in your culture.

I'll start with what's happening soon in the Ol' USA.

Happy Halloween!

December 8th is the day that many Buddhists celebrate Bodhi Day, or the occasion when the Buddha attained enlightenment on this same day in 596 BC while sitting under the Bodhi tree.

It's not a holiday, but some of us are celebrating #NoDapl ... the Standing Rock Sioux have won, for the moment.

In the U.K. and some other parts of Europe Sunday 26 March, which is the fourth Sunday in Lent, is Mothering Sunday, not to be confused with Mother's Day in the U.S. which is on the second Sunday in May, and is a public holiday.

From Wikipaedia: During the 16th century, people returned to their mother church, the main church or cathedral of the area, for a service to be held on Laetare Sunday. This was either the church where you were baptised, or the local parish church, or more often the nearest cathedral. Anyone who did this was commonly said to have gone "a-mothering", although whether this term preceded the observance of Mothering Sunday is unclear. In later times, Mothering Sunday became a day when domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother church, usually with their own mothers and other family members. It was often the only time that whole families could gather together, since on other days they were prevented by conflicting working hours, and servants were not given free days on other occasions.

Children and young people who were "in service" (as household servants) were given a day off on that date so they could visit their families (or, originally, return to their "mother" church). The children would pick wild flowers along the way to place in the church or give to their mothers. Eventually, the religious tradition evolved into the Mothering Sunday secular tradition of giving gifts to mothers.



For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12
