CHINESE NEW YEAR 2015: The Year of the Sheep

Williamsburg Court - Monday, February 16, 2015

Chinese New Year is the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese year 4713 begins on February 19, 2015.

Interesting Background: Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on  Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha names a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality. Those born in sheep years are often artistic, charming, sensitive and sweet. It is known as the most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac.

At Chinese New Year celebrations, people wear red clothes, decorate with poems on red paper, and give children "lucky money" in red envelopes. Red symbolizes fire, which according to legend can drive away bad luck. The fireworks that shower the festivities are rooted in a similar ancient custom ... believing that the crackling flames would frighten evil spirits.

In China, the New Year is a time of family reunion. Family members gather at each other's homes for visits and shared meals, most significantly a feast on New Year's Eve. In the United States, however, many early Chinese immigrants arrived without their families, and found a sense of community through neighborhood associations instead.

Why not surprise someone on Thursday, February 19th with a greeting of "Happy New Year" and see what kind of reaction you get!

President's Day 2015

Williamsburg Court - Friday, February 13, 2015

Washington's Birthday is a federal holiday in the U.S. celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States (actually born on February 22). Usually, it's commonly known as President's Day and is often an occasion to remember all the presidents, not just George Washington or Abraham Lincoln (born on February 12). The term "President's Day" was informally coined in a deliberate attempt to use the holiday to honor multiple presidents and is virtually always used that way today.

Many buinessess are open as usual and many stores hold sales on President's Day, while most federal offices are closed for the holiday obsered on Monday, February 16th this year. Some schools also close for the whole week as a mid-winter recess.

For some ideas of things to do in Albany, this holiday weekend, check out the following website for ideas: http://www.wegoplaces.com/albany-ny-presidents-day-weekend

Another great choice on President's Day is to visit the Albany Institute of History & Art for free! The whole family will enjoy their new exhibit Triple Play! Baseball. A few additional activities that will be held at the Institute on Monday, February 16th will be:

Valentine's Day 2015

Williamsburg Court - Monday, February 09, 2015

Are you a diligent planner with all your Valentine's Day arrangements already made? Or are you an optimistic procrastinator hoping for a last minute brilliant idea that ends up working out perfectly? Either way, you're in luck, because the link below will provide you with plenty of great ideas for an exciting weekend celebrating this holiday.

Website: http://www.albany.com/valentine/

Here's some interesting background about the holiday: The origin of Valentine's Day and the story of its patron saint date back to the third century but at shrouded in mystery with bits of ancient Roman and Christian traditions. One popular story involves St. Valentine who was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. And during his imprisonment, he healed his jailer's daughter, for whom he developed an affection. An embellishment to this story starts that before his execution he wrote her a farewell letter signed "Your Valentine."

Well, whether you're in a relationship or not, loving and being loved is something we can all participate in. Giving a stranger an unexpected smile and getting one back, lending a hand when needed or hearing a genuine "thank you" ... these simple acts of kindness don't require planning, cost nothing, and yet cast a bit of sunshine on a winter's celebration of Valentine's Day! We hope your holiday is a wonderfully bright day! 

GROUNDHOG DAY - Will Spring Come Early This Year?

Williamsburg Court - Friday, January 30, 2015

February 2nd is Groundhog Day with the focal celebration in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. The main celebrity for this event is a groundhog aptly named Punxsutawney Phil.

Folklore has it that when the groundhog emerges from his borrow early this Monday morning, if it's cloudy, then spring will be early, but if it's sunny and the groundhog sees its shadow, it will retreat back into its borrow and we're in for another six long weeks of winter! UGH!!!

For my sake and yours, I certainly hope that ol' Phil doesn't see his shadow because I sure am ready for Spring!
