Now entering in more religious subjects we can say that spring is a important month for Christianity as its this time of the year that this religious community embraces themselves and celebrate what its called the Holy Week which takes place the week just before Easter. Holy Week is preceded by Lent, which ends in the Week of Passion where the Eucharist is celebrated on Holy Thursday, the Crucifixion of Jesus is celebrated on Good Friday and the Resurrection at the Easter Vigil during the night of Holy Saturday to Sunday of Resurrection.
Picnics are also an excuse to gather with family and friends in a casual setting. Without distractions from home, it’s much easier to savor your meal, the fresh air of spring, and the company of others. Enjoying the pleasures of food and drink with others is one of the pillars of the Mediterranean Diet. Why not take it a step further and pack Mediterranean-themed food too?
Picnic foods should be simple, easy to eat, and not-too-heavy (since picnics usually go hand in hand with extra activities like swimming, hiking, or chasing little ones). There are plenty of carefree Mediterranean dishes that meet these requirements and pack a ﬂavor punch, too.
Winter ends, spring arrives and the colors come out. Across India and Nepal, millions of Hindus are celebrating Holi, the joyous festival of color, smearing one another with colored powder and spraying each other with squirt guns. Holi takes place the day after the full moon in March, While its roots are religious, tied in many ways to the god Krishna, Holi is also seen as a celebration of good versus evil, and of a good harvest. it involves a magnificent carnival-like atmosphere with music, dancing and bright colours everywhere!
Passover is a celebration of spring, of birth and rebirth, of a journey from slavery to freedom, and of taking responsibility for yourself, the community, and the world. However, strangely enough, none of this taking of responsibility gets done without groaning. It was with groaning that the Hebrews expressed the pain of their ancient enslavement in Egypt more than 3,300 years ago. It was with groaning that they called attention to their plight. Passover commences on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Nisan and lasts for either seven days. The “Seder” is a ceremonial meal that includes a bunch of symbolic foods, usually, a traditional Seder would include discussing the biblical story, drinking four cups of wine, partaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate and reclining in celebration of freedom.
