The story of Thanksgiving


Hoy se conmemora en los EEUU Thanksgiving -Día de Acción de Gracias- Es una de las festividades más tradicionales en Estados Unidos y se celebra todos los años el cuarto jueves del mes de noviembre.

El primer Thanksgiving lo celebraron en 1621 los primeros peregrinos. Ellos habían viajado desde Inglaterra a América en 1620 en el barco Mayflower y desembarcaron en Plymouth. Escapaban de las restricciones de la iglesia de Inglaterra y también de la pobreza. Tras un primer año muy duro y difícil conmemoraron su primera cosecha. El presidente Abraham Lincoln inició la conmemoración a mediados del siglo XIX durante la Guerra Civil estadounidense.  

El frenesí por las compras para el día siguiente a esta celebración, viernes, conocido como Black Friday, es muy significativo entre los estadounidenses y es semejante a nuestras compras de Navidad.

Bloomsday is celebrated on June 16th every year in Dublin and commemorates the work of the Irish author James Joyce. The name of Bloomsday is called after the main character, Leopold Bloom, in his most famous novel - Ulysses -(which is set on 16 June 1904)
Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; they walked to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend
 The novel, Ulysses,  follows the life and thoughts of Leopold Bloom and a host of other characters – real and fictional – from 8 a.m. on 16 June 1904 through to the early hours of the following morning.

World book day

Reading for pleasure is one of the most important 
things one can doNeil Gaiman

World Book and Copyright Day 2014

The history of the written word is the history of humanity.
The power of books to advance individual fulfilment and to create social change is unequalled. Intimate and yet deeply social, books provide far-reaching forms of dialogue between individuals, within communities and across time.
As Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban for attending classes, said in her speech at the United Nations:

Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons.

Reading is food for the soul
