Easter in Romania

Such festivals, and the stories and legends that explain their origin, were common in ancient religions. A Greek legend tells of the return of Persephone, daughter of Demeter, goddess of the earth, from the underworld to the light of day; her return symbolized to the ancient Greeks the resurrection of life in the spring after the desolation of winter. Many ancient peoples shared similar legends. The Phrygians believed that their omnipotent deity went to sleep at the time of the winter solstice, and they performed ceremonies with music and dancing at the spring equinox to awaken him.

In Banat for instance, on the first day of Easter, at breakfast, people practice the tradition of incensing the goods; then, every table companion receives an Easter spoon = wine and hallowed bread.
In Transylvania, the man of the house shares a single hallowed egg with the rest of the family. A belief from Bucovina says that the people that knock red eggs in the Easter day will meet each other in the life after death. Moreover, the one whose egg breaks first, will die before the other one.

Tradition in Britain

The word "wassail" is derived from the Anglo-Saxon phrase waes hael, which means "good health." Originally, wassail was a beverage made of mulled ale, curdled cream, roasted apples, nuts, eggs, and spices. It was served for the purpose of enhancing the general merriment of the season. Like many of the ancient customs, "wassailing" has a legend to explain its origin. It seems that a beautiful Saxon maiden named Rowena presented Prince Vortigen with a bowl of wine while toasting him with the words "Waes hael."

Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday?
The history of Valentine's Day -- and its patron saint -- is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.
So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men -- his crop of potential soldiers. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius ...

Pastele - in limba germana

Die Verbindung zwischen Ostern und der Tierwelt ist ähnlich, wie bei den Osterblumen. Da Ostern in die Frühlingszeit fällt und in diesem Zeitraum die Natur zu leben und zu wachsen beginnt, zeigen sich auch immer mehr die Tiere. Es gibt die Tiere wie der Igel, Hamster, Siebenschläfer, Murmeltier, usw., die in einen Winterschlaf fallen und erst bei steigenden Temperaturen sich zeigen.

Paris in 4 zile


Le PALAIS DE CHAILLOT, qui couronne les pentes de la colline du Trocadéro vers la Seine et a pris son aspect actuel en 1937, représente bien l’architecture de l’ entre – deux guerres. La sévérité du matériau accentue l’aspect grandiose de l’édifice, puissamment scandé par les longues fenêtres verticales. La terrasse centrale, d’où jouit d’une superbe vue sur Paris, recouvre la plus vaste salle de théâtre de la capitale, celle du Théâtre National Populaire, qui a réussi à rendre le théâtre accessible aux moins fortunés et a profondément influencé les metteurs en scène contemporains.
