May your coming year be filled with joy, magic, dreams and good madness!
I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return.
And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.
And have lots of fun, joy and happiness!

Did you know that…
It was only relatively recently that 1 January again became the first day of the year in Western culture.
Until 1751 in England and Wales (and all British dominions) the new year started on 25 March – Lady Day, one of the four quarter days (the change to 1 January took place in 1600 in Scotland).
Since then, 1 January has been the first day of the year.
During the Middle Ages several other days were variously taken as the beginning of the calendar year (1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, 25 December).
In many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy and the UK, 1 January is a national holiday.

The word comes from medieval England’s All Hallows’ eve (Old Eng. hallow=”saint”).
However, many of these customs predate Christianity, going back instead to Celtic practices associated with Nov. 1-the beginning of winter and the Celtic new year.
Witches and other evil spirits were believed to roam the earth on this evening, playing tricks on human beings to mark the season of diminishing sunlight.
Bonfires were lit, offerings were made of dainty foods and sweets, and people would disguise themselves as one of the roaming spirits, to avoid demonic persecution.
Survivals of these early practices can be found in countries of Celtic influence today, such as the United States where children go from door to door in scary costumes demanding “trick or treat”.
Here get a nice inspirational idea for making a quick gift box for Halloween:

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition.
It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts.
In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain.
The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween.
Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating.
In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.
Make a fantastic gift box for Halloween to cheer your friends or family members.

It’s school time again!
Children are probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over…
Some kids feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things.
New teachers, new friends, new schedules, new shoes, new notebooks, and maybe even a new school…
Luckily, these “new” worries only stick around for a little while.
But it’s not easy…
Switching from the laid-back fun in the sun of summer to rules, homework, and routines can be a big jump for parents and children alike. The transition from summer fun to school rules can stress out kids. But with a little preparation and the right attitude, it doesn’t have to be so hard.
Get a Back To School Gift for your child to release the stress a bit.

As a child, you must have rushed to get your hands on a delicious frozen treat whenever you heard the ice cream truck drive by. Ice cream trucks were a source of frosty happiness.
Vibrant stickers of assorted, frosty ice cream treats were strewn across the truck’s sides, seeming so real and tasty, our mouths watered in anticipation.
There were chocolate nut cones, ice cream sandwiches and assorted ice pops in every flavor. Strawberry Shortcakes, Chocolate Eclairs and Cherry Bombs to name just a few…
And there was an ice cream of all – the Buried Treasure!
It was called the Buried Treasure because you had to eat all the raspberry ice cream to discover the “treasure” deep inside.
An imprint on the plastic stick! It might be a lion, a dog, or even a funny clown. Whatever it was, it was well worth the wait!
