March Holidays (pg. 2)

Mar 01, 2015

There are several holidays to look forward to in March. Here's a list, and a brief description, of the holidays you can celebrate this month!

St. Patrick's Day :: March 17th

This Irish holiday is always celebrated on March 17th, which is the day St. Patrick died. Patrick was a missionary way back in the 4th century who converted the Irish to Christianity. He used the shammrock as a way of explaining the three important parts of Christianity - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit - which is why the shammrock is now a symbol for this day.

Saint Joseph's Day :: March 19th

People of Italian heritage usually celebrate this Christian holiday. It recognizes Joseph, the patron saint of Italy who was married to Jesus' mother, Mary. The holiday started in the Middle Ages when there was a long drought in Italy. The people prayed to St. Joseph for rain, and when it started raining they celebrated with a feast in his honor. There are also people who believe that swallows (a kind of bird) return to San Juan Capistrano, California from their winter migration on this day.

Spring Equinox :: March 20th

Spring Equinox, also called the Vernal Equinox, is the first day of spring. On this day, there are exactly 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness everywhere in the world.

Emancipation Day for Puerto Rico :: March 22nd

Emancipation days are celebrated on different days all over the world, depending on when slavery became illegal in each country. The first slaves were brought to Puerto Rico in 1560 and it wasn't until March 1873 that slavery was abolished.

We have no reason to change our position in the animal kingdom. We are the superior species.

Anxiety isn't something that can be described as a feeling or emotion. It is instead almost like a rain cloud. I use this rain cloud analogy because it doesn't fit the base of a shadow nor demon. Have you ever seen one of those rain clouds on cartoons that follow people around where ever they go? Anxiety is similar to that however unlike a shadow you will always know it's there and whenever you approach a social situation the rain gets heavier, and as you become weaker from surviving the heavy rain sometimes you take the easy way out and avoid the social situation altogether. You eventually feel helpless to the rain and give in, you avoid any social situation possible and begin to lose all skill in that area. Little did you know doing this to avoid heavy rain will instead set you up for a storm. A storm of awkwardness and low self esteem and that's when the dark thoughts seep in.  However there will be those people who will protect you for the storm, or those people who would be there if you needed them to and if you put in just a little effort you can evade the storm and though that little rain cloud may always linger around you, you will never forget about your experience in the storm, from that you grow as a person and eventually you will accept and laugh about this little rain cloud. You will accept yourself for who you are and push yourself beyond your boundaries to become the person you wanted to be. This person may not be perfect but if you are happy with the person you are then none of that should matter. None of the awkwardness, none of the mistakes and none of the imperfections should matter.  The only thing that does matter is the fact that you are the person you want to be. The person you are happy being. (Just my experience with anxiety /: ) I had a lot to get off of my chest)

We all know that the symbols and colors of God are only white. And devils color is red and black which stand for danger. I came to ask why did Satan choose two colors and mixed it together to make it scared and danger? And my another question is why did we always obey devils work and ignored Gods work? On my own mind i can say that is girls is the most human that do devils work, 95% and they do God work 5% But we guys can only do 40% of devils work and 50% for God.      Please if its false or true  story you can drop your comment below ........................................................... ...................................................................... ....................................................................................   What i understand in all these is   that  Satan is greedy and he came to destroy the world for those who give them chance like Nigeria have already give them chance, so is there for you  to choose one of this two masters God or Satan, because i know you cannot serve two masters at the same time;     Please give your vote with choice. .......................................................... ...................................................... .................................................. ............................................................... ...................................................................                             Thanks for your cooperation and thanks for your understanding                                                                       Sign by Desmond
