Holidays that are loved by Russian women

Russian holidays are usually divided on national, state, professional and other holidays. The national celebrations, as a rule, have some special historical meaning. State holidays are dedicated to the events that have a social-political significance, and are held traditionally. Professional and other holidays usually are celebrated by separate categories of people.

There are about nine official holidays in Russian Federation, but only three of them are really popular, widely celebrated and absolutely loved by the population. They are: the New Year, 8 March, and the holy Easter. Russian women wait and thoroughly prepare for each of these holidays, when they can give presents and receive gifts from all of the close people and friends.

The New Year is the biggest and greatest holiday for the whole post-Soviet region.
It’s considered to be one of the most bright and festive holidays of the year. People start getting ready for the celebrations at the beginning of December, while in cities bright lights and fur-trees begin to appear, creating the Christmas atmosphere and good mood. It is a time for great joy for family and friends and for discounts in shops, but yet hardly anyone thinks about its history.

The New Year holiday appeared in the ancient period. Originally, it wasn’t celebrated in December, and in different countries New Year was held in different times. But one thing all the states had in common was that almost everywhere the New Year began in spring, symbolizing the rebirth of nature. In Russia, from 10th to 15th century the New Year began on the 1st of March. Only later, in 1699, Peter the First has proclaimed that the New Year would start on 1st of January. During this time, the Russian tradition of decorating fur-trees and wishing happiness and well-being began. Nevertheless, Peter the First said that the celebrations should be without alcohol and totally dedicated to children.

The main reason for starting the new year in March was because that was how things have been done since creation. At the end of 15th century, the Orthodox Church designated the 1st of September as the new year and the last time when it was celebrated on this date was in 1698, although there still exist some places, where according to the Orthodox Church, the 1st of September is the beginning of the new year, and the 1st of January is just a civil holiday.

Peter the First’s goal in changing the date of the new year to the 1st of January was to align the Russian calendar with those of the countries in Europe. Right after the original New Year there comes another celebration for the CIS people, called the Old New Year, which takes place on night from 13th to 14th of January. Even here, in CIS, many people don’t know the real reason why they still celebrate the Old New Year. They just do it because of the tradition and because there is a common belief that on this day you’ve got to say good bye to the year that has passed, and try to remember your lucks in unlucks, preparing to live the new year that you already welcomed in the best way you can. However, the real reason why people celebrate it is because very long ago, the Orthodox Church has refused to accept the new style calendar based on Julian calendar.

Another holiday celebrated in Russia, Ukraine and all the neighbouring CIS countries is March 8th. It’s an important holiday because it is dedicated to ladies! On the Former Soviet Union territory the 8th of March is considered to be an International Women’s Day. Here, people devote this holiday to the whole female population of the world. Annually, this bright date involves everyone and keeps everybody busy in the country of Russia! On this day the Russian brides feel themselves as the queens, accepting greetings and gifts from their fathers, brothers, nephews, boyfriends and husbands. And all the men are also very happy on this day, because it’s a real chance for them to show all their care and love to ladies.

Historically, this holiday is a day of women’s solidarity in the battle for economic, social and political equal rights. The decision on annual celebration of International Women’s day in every country of the world was accepted in 1910 on the International conference of female socialists in Copenhagen. First of all, it was provided in the row of European countries in 1911 and then, in 1913 in Russia. Nevertheless, the tradition of celebrating this event was only kept in the Soviet Union and still is widely celebrated in this area.

On the 8th of March guys give flowers to all the women they know. What kind of presents they usually make depends on how much close the woman is for them. Traditionally, they give tulips for ladies, so as it symbolizes the beginning of spring, something new and vivid. When talking about their sweethearts, men try to be as much generous as possible, because every lady wants to feel herself very special on this day that is especially dedicated to her.

Another warm, bright and joyful holiday celebrated here is the Easter. This lovely and delightful holiday of the ancient religious tradition is usually held in April or May. Everybody colour eggs, bake Easter cakes and congratulate each other at this time, saying: “Christ has arisen!”. On Easter people usually visit their relatives, friends, neighbours and treat one another with beautifully painted eggs, lush baking and pastry.

An interesting “holiday fact” has been recently published by a local organization called “Freedom Foundation”. The most popular holiday in Ukraine is the New Year – 92) as by women (64, then goes Orthodox Christmas (held on the 7th of January ) – 58.

Other holidays that are also really loved here, came from the European culture – they are the Saint Valentine’s Day and Halloween. Those two are considered to be as fashionable and widely spread among the younger generations, so as entered this culture not so long ago.

Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals – 10 Things to Consider

So you’ve decided to splurge this summer! Good for you! We all need a vacation and sometimes the ‘stay-cations’  everyone is taking these days just don’t cut it when it comes to relaxing and unwinding from the stresses of our everyday  lives. Still, let’s be reasonable. We may want a vacation away from home, but how many of us can afford a five-star hotel for  a week? Or the cost of three meals a day at fancy resort prices?  So is there a happy medium? You might be surprised to learn that you can have that get-away-vacation in a resort town like Santa Barbara and eat your  cake, too!  How? Check out the wide variety of Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals available all year round. 

Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals run the gambit from studio apartments  for the single traveler, or couple, to multiple-family sized villas exquisitely set on the pristine Santa Barbara coastline –  and everything in between. Whether it’s a place from which to take long walks on the beach, or one with full access to Santa  Barbara’s many offerings in town, you will find what you’re looking for in a Santa Barbara Vacation Rental at prices that  will take the sting out of the cost of a vacation.  Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals are usually privately owned rentals, and  for us, home-away-from-home complete with kitchens, room to spread out and often amenities we could only dream of having at  five star resorts, like a private Jacuzzi or pool, beach paraphernalia and a place to cook S’mores under the stars.

Once you’ve decided that these kinds of amenities are what you’re looking for, it’s time to narrow down the choices.  So what should you consider when booking a Santa Barbara Vacation Rental? Here are a  few things to think about as you peruse the hundreds of choices.

•        Are you a beach comber?  Lover of beachy sunsets? Do you have children who would love nothing more than to  dig in the sand all day?  If so, look for a Santa Barbara vacation rental near the coast. This will save you precious time  and money in driving costs daily, and allow you the freedom to come and go instead of having to plan your entire day around  one trip to the beach.  Parking costs can be steep there, as well, so proximity allows you to avoid the high costs of  shuffling your car between parking meters.  And if you don’t have a car, staying close by the beach will save on public  transportation costs.

•         While we’re on the subject of parking, check to see if your vacation rental includes free on-site parking.  This can be a major and expensive hassle if it doesn’t.  You can save big bucks if your Santa Barbara Vacation Rental is not  only close to the places you want to visit, and you can leave your car parked for the week.

•        Is shopping your thing?  Do you love fine dining?  Santa Barbara offers a broad spectrum of wonderful  restaurants and shopping from imports and seasonal craft fairs to high end boutiques. Most of these are in town, so if you’re  a gourmet, shopping aficionado and not a beach comber, consider staying in a Santa Barbara Vacation Rental in town. Not only  will you avoid the beach crowd and traffic, you’ll be right where the action is.  And if you don’t have a car, Santa Barbara  is a small town, and extremely walkable.  But public transportation makes it easy to get from one end of town to the other,  should you want it.

•        If you’re going to be on the beach, check to see if your Santa Barbara Vacation Rental provides any beach  equipment. Not only will this come in handy, it will save you from having to drag it along or invest in costly rentals or  disposable purchases while you’re there. What kinds of things should you look for in your Santa Barbara Vacation Rental?  Ask  if the owners have Boogey boards, skim boards, or beach chairs and umbrellas. Are there any bicycles you can use? Do they  have buckets and shovels for the kids or even coolers to bring along on beach picnics? You might be surprised to learn that  many Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals do provide amenities like these. The secret is: Ask!

•        Check to see if your Santa Barbara Vacation Rental provides linens for the beds.  While most do, some don’t,  so be sure to ask.

•        One of the advantages of staying in a Santa Barbara Vacation Rental is the feeling that you’re not just  staying there, you’re living there. So be sure to ask if there are things like dishwashers, irons, washer and drying on the  premises.

•        Even if you’re close to the beach, a pool can be just the spot to lounge around on hot summer days. It can  also be a romantic place for two under the Santa Barbara night sky. So if a pool is on your list of must-haves, be sure to  ask if your Santa Barbara Vacation Rental comes complete with one!

This is your vacation. Make the most of it in a Santa Barbara Vacation Rental!

Beyond the Secret: Spiritual Power and the Law of Attraction

Beyond the Secret:

Spiritual Power & the Law of Attraction

By Dr. Lisa Love

(Book Excerpt, Copyright ã 2007, All Rights Reserved. Book Available NOW on

Chapter One: Orient Towards Spirit

If there is one secret truly worth discovering, it is not the secret of the law of attraction. It is the secret of Spirit. True, the law of attraction can bring you whatever you want in life, but as I mentioned before, it won’t necessarily bring you what is good for you. Only Spirit understands what you really need and why you are here.

Seek to understand what Spirit wants for you in this life.

As you will discover the law of attraction can be used in healthy or unhealthy ways. A child can be attracted to a flame, but the best result is not to put her hand into the fire and get burned. Metaphorically, Spirit can be seen as a divine parent, seeking to guide you into greater wisdom and maturity. And what Spirit ultimately wants for you is simple—to be conscious of the universe.

Spirit also wants you to live an abundant life. But, let’s be clear on what spiritual abundance is and what it is not. An abundance of Spirit is an abundance of spiritual wisdom and insight. It includes an abundance of spiritual values like patience, love, compassion, maturity, respect, appreciation, intelligence, harmony, inner peace, joy, and a dedication to what is often called the good, the true, and the beautiful.

Spiritual Lessons Are Everywhere

Yes, your dharma, or spiritual purpose in life, may involve great monetary wealth. But, then again, it may not! While meditating on wealth and spirituality, I remember one particularly powerful experience. I was reflecting on the times when I had money and when I did not. At the time I was near the ocean. It had just rained, and slowly my attention was drawn to the vast expanse of water in front of me and then to a puddle by the side of the road.

Oceans and puddles. My attention went back and forth between the two. Should I damn the puddle for being so small? Wasn’t it serving a purpose? Wasn’t it helping to collect a pool of water until the sun could evaporate it? Didn’t I have multiple childhood memories of splashing about in puddles? Didn’t I remember the delight, the laughter, the squealing in joy at seeing water splash all around me as my boot stomped down into the water? Yes, puddles had brought a lot of joy into my life.

As for oceans, having grown up in the Midwest, I always found it a magical experience to head down to Florida to see the vast expanse of water before me: the waves rolling in and out, surfers riding the waves, sea creatures of all kind inhabiting a whole new universe below. Oceans were always mysterious and magical to me, not to mention healing and soothing, which was why I was standing in front of the ocean at that time.

Of course, lakes had always brought a lot of joy to me as well. There were lots of lakes in the Midwest. I loved the water. I liked both sailing and water-skiing, and swimming was always one of my favorite things. Picnics on the grass. Family outings. Those early teenage romantic rendezvous. Except for the jiggers, which could bite you, I never had a memory of a lake I didn’t thoroughly adore.

Even water in a glass has a purpose. I don’t know about you, but when I am thirsty, it is water in a glass and not water from a lake, ocean, or puddle I most want to drink. I realized that no matter what form or shape water tookit wasn’t how much water any person did or did not have. It was the function of the water and how well it was put to good use.

And, in that moment I realized that money and all of the “stuff” people acquired with it was exactly like water in this world. I came to understand that it wasn’t how much any person had or didn’t have that mattered. It was the spiritual lessons they were learning from what they possessed and how well they consciously, lovingly, and intelligently managed their possessions, and how capable they were of sticking to spiritual principles no matter how much wealth, or what kind of circumstances they faced in their lives. Perhaps this is why so many spiritual people go through both prosperous and adverse situations. Like the double dorje, they are learning to stand poised at the center of the circle, staying spiritually balanced no matter the outer circumstances of their world.

Spirit Overcomes Fear and Selfish Desire

As you’ve probably figured out by now, when I talk about using the law of attraction, I am not talking about getting a lot of stuff. Stuff may or may not make you happy, and I will go into that later in this book. It’s just that people acquire stuff as a way to avoid their ultimate fear—that stuff may really be all there is in this universe. Just like the stuff of our bodies, one day all other stuff will disappear. The only thing that will remain is Spirit, and even that is difficult for some stuff-driven people to accept and comprehend. Though I have personalized Spirit metaphorically as a divine parent, it really is the vast, all-encompassing force that pervades the universe. As my own mystical experiences have revealed to me, Spirit lives within everything. Nothing can escape it and everyone is “it” in a very fundamental way.

Understand that Spirit is infinite; forms are finite. Spirit is abundant; forms are not.

Thus, those who know Spirit intimately understand beyond a shadow of a doubt that nothing in this universe can be destroyed. Death is an illusion. Whenever anything appears to die, it simply changes shape and form. As Albert Einstein said, “Energy, cannot be created or destroyed. ” This realization radically shifts your experience of death and desire. Though The Secret also mentions this Einstein quote, the book fails to illuminate or appreciate how, when you remove the fear of death, you don’t desire things in quite the same way.

For starters, you no longer act as a human being who wants to consume everything in sight, leaving nothing of real value for your children and grandchildren in the future. You begin to understand that humans who are only focused on consumption are really like a cancer on this Earth. Just as cancer cells in your body could use the law of attraction to get what they want despite your ultimate demise; humans need to understand that if they are not careful they will use the law of attraction in a destructive manner reaping devastation on the larger world around.

Of course, even if the law of attraction is used in a selfish way, Spirit will ultimately turn it toward the good. But why make those mistakes? Why set yourself back and misuse the law of attraction instead of using it in a spiritual way?

The difficulty with the law of attraction is that it is entirely neutral. Just as The Secret shares, the law of attraction is like a genie in a bottle here to grant your every wish. Often, what you are wishing for is not what Spirit is wishing for you! Just as a child can wish to eat nothing but cookies all day long, what you wish for as an adult may or may not be good for you in the long run. And, since the law of attraction is neutral, it doesn’t care. It will give you want you want regardless.

Remember the law of attraction is neutral. Though you can use it to get whatever you wish for, it doesn’t always give you what Spirit wishes for you!

Spirit Reveals Your Ultimate Destiny

So, here’s the rub: The next time you are busy polishing that lamp so all of your wishes can come true, think twice about what you are doing because the most powerful use of the law of attraction is ultimately to attract to yourself a clear understanding of how to wish! And, one of the best wishes you can make is to gain insight into yourself and your spiritual purpose, mission, or ultimate destiny in this world.

Now, I cannot tell you what your ultimate destiny is. Though I can attempt to guide you, only Spirit knows what it is for certain. But, I believe Spirit has a fundamental purpose—to wake you up so you can realize that ultimately you are Spirit, and so is everything else around you. Call it enlightenment, self-realization, unity consciousness, oneness, or being filled with the Holy Spirit. It all leads to a quest where you understand that you are here not to consume but to contribute. You are not here simply to acquire but to give! All that you receive in life is ultimately a gift from Spirit that teaches you to be more loving and aware on this Earth. And, you might as well face it: No matter how much you use the law of attraction to wish it would not be true, your time on this Earth is finite! How you spend your time here is important. So, what on this Earth will you do?

Will you spend your time and energy only trying to obtain your material desires? Especially in the world today, it is possible to attract to yourself a lot of material goods! And, quite frankly, attracting stuff is easy. Just think of all the people you know who have knowingly or unknowingly used the law of attraction to get what they have wanted in life. They may have cars, money, a dream home, the best-looking partner or spouse, good health, and even well-dressed and educated children. On the exterior, their lives look like a dream. Yet, despite all of this, they may also remain lackluster and walk through life half-consciously. To cope, they often medicate themselves with alcohol, Prozac, illegal drugs, adrenaline-rush activities, sexual conquests, and much, much more. Sadly, despite all of their prosperity, too many people in our present society act like empty zombies. Maybe that is why our culture is so increasingly obsessed with horror movies. As a whole, we are trying to wake up to the horror of the empty lives too many people are currently living.

Attract More Spirit into Your Life

This is why it is so important to attract the things of Spirit no matter what the outer circumstances of your life. Then you will know that if you can stay connectioned with Spirit, grow in wisdom, and have a heart capable of love, you will remain in a very good mood, just like Job in the Bible who was stripped of everything and everyone he loved for a while; you will discover it ispossible to stay in touch with Spirit for better or worse, in sickness and health, till death do you part, no matter what.You will learn to remain in a state of inner joy and peace whether you take on the role of a Bill Gates or Mother Teresa. My research and life experiences have shown that me that people can accomplish this. But, I have worked hard and long to know the secret of Spirit in my life. I know this secret of Spirit really has the power to free you.

So, get busy trying to attract an understanding of the purpose Spirit has for you. But, remember that you cannot write that purpose yourself, especially if it is selfish in nature, without paying a price in the end. What does Spirit want most from you? To become conscious and to love. How do you love? By experiencing yourself as connected to everything around you, and as everything and everyone, to learn how to take better care of yourself. Despite the illusion that you are separate from other people, we are all interconnected. Similar to a hand, even though you may believe you are only a finger, you are part of a hand nevertheless. As you wake up to this fact, you realize how important it is to care about what happens to the people and the overall planet around you. This is not an easy task. To truly love, you have to understand what everything around you needs to grow and prosper. Try attracting that information to you!

Of course, learning to love everyone and everything around you may seem like an impossible task. That is why it is important to begin in small ways. If you can just learn to love and care for yourself, that alone is a huge accomplishment. If you can also learn to love, care for, and respect your family, neighbors, co-workers, and community—wow! What a wonderful world it would be if we could all do that!

So, why not begin right now to use the law of attraction to help you live a loving and spiritual life? And, don’t forget to attract to yourself an understanding of just how much you have to offer. That way you will seek to make your life more about contribution, instead of acquisition, as you live from day to day.

Therefore, use the law of attraction to benefit not only yourself, but everyone around you.

Orient toward Spirit—Key Insights

1. Seek to understand what Spirit wants for you in this life.

2. Understand that Spirit is infinite; forms are finite. Spirit is abundant; forms are not.

3. Remember the law of attraction is neutral. Though you can use it to get whatever you wish for, it doesn’t always give you what Spirit wishes for you!

4. Use the law of attraction to benefit not only yourself, but everyone around you.

What to do with left over holiday food

Family, food and good times! That is what the holidays are all about. What to do with all of that left over holiday food? Chances are that you and your family indulged in a few good meals; and you now have stacks of platic containers filled with leftovers. A good rule of thumb, do not let these great foods go to waste! Be creative and enjoy the flavors of the holidays for days to come.

Freezable, reusable containers come in extremely handy this time of year. Schedule another family get together in a couple weeks, and voila! All you will have to do is take the food out of the freezer and heat it up. In a simplified manner, you and your family can enjoy all of the awesome tastes, once again, that accompany the holiday season.

As your guests are departing; send a reusable container, with leftovers, right on out the door with your guests! This really is a no brainer when it comes to leftover holiday food. Not only will you be able to enjoy some of the tastes of the holidays, but your guests will also be able to savor the last few bites of the holidays. If you live in a warm climate, make sure the food will be transported home in a safe manner. Nobody enjoys a bout of food poisoning over the course of the holidays.

If you are like many other people, you will probably have to work a couple days over the holiday. Remember, leftovers make awesome lunch time meals at the office. Your meal at the office will be healthy and also very affordable. Holiday meals can provide a healthy alternative for your lunch while at the office. A nifty way to reuse that turkey is to toss a tortilla shell into your lunch box, along with turkey and stuffing. Warm the tortilla and then heat the turkey with dressing. This makes a great tasting wrap sandwich, with all of the flavor of the holidays!

One of the easiest ways to avoid the leftover issue, is to plan your menu for the number of people that are attending your holiday meal. We all get caught up in the buy, buy, buy mode and throw more than we need into our shopping carts. When we go armed with a list in hand, we tend to shop smart. In today’s tough economy, we all want the biggest bang for our buck. If you enjoy holiday leftovers, as well as leftovers at the office, plan your shopping list accordlingly. By planning for five extra people, you will have leftovers for a good week!

By shopping smart and arming yourself with some knowledge, your holiday leftovers will not become an issue. If a couple weeks have passed and you still have containers of leftovers in your refrigerator, toss them out! Treat this day as a day to clean out your refrigerator and alleviate all food bourne illnesses. A well stocked refrigerator is a lifesaver for many of us today. Keep the food fresh and healthy. Your family will thank you for not subjecting them to an outdated holiday meal! By practicing good hygiene and healthy habits in the kitchen, your leftover food will be enjoyed by many.
