DID YOU KNOW......

HALLOWEEN MAY HAVE IRISH ORIGIN !!!!!

" If you like the holiday of Halloween, you may know that it originated from Pagan tradition, but you may not realize that it was the Irish again who started it all. The Celtics saw it as a time when our world and the spirit world were most connected to each other, and it was called Samhain. Of course when the Christians took over the holiday, they called it “All Hallows’ Eve”, and then later changed the name to “All Saints Day”. Halloween is one of the most stubborn Holidays, however, in that no matter what Christian influence has been exerted, much of the practices of the day are still very much of pagan origin and not just on the surface. Halloween is still known as the day when the spirit world crosses over into our realm, and is practiced as such by many."

Did You Know? Women’s History Month started as Women’s History Week

Women’s History Month began as a local celebration in Santa Rosa, California. The Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women planned and executed a “Women’s History Week” celebration in 1978. The organizers selected the week of March 8 to correspond with International Women’s Day. The movement spread across the country as other communities initiated their own Women’s History Week celebrations the following year.
