New Day was a Blast!

Winter 2nd, 2015

So we had a party with great home made food and great company. Couldn't have asked for more! We were all so full of Japanese sushi, French soup, German sauerkraut, sausage and beer, Polish sausage, olives to represent Greece, Italian Caprese, Indian Curry, American deviled eggs, Californian wine (represent!), and even Chinese beef and noodles!


It was fun to make and even more fun to eat. Can't wait to do it all again.

So I wish you a happy new year, a happy New Day, and enjoy the coming year and all that follows! And of course, happy Winter!


New Day is Coming!

Fall 76, 2015

So in just a couple weeks, New Day is coming! It's the big turn of the year and the winter Solstice in the Western World (Eastern is the 1st of Winter). So mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate New Day.

But how do we celebrate new day?

Well I'm glad you asked!

It has been the tradition to make this a multicultural day. And how do you do that? Well simply get together with everyone you know from as far as you can think of. Diversity is key here. The point is to make it a family/friend/anyone get-together. Celebrate you're alive for another year, even though the weather might be awful (Northern Hemisphere). It's a global holiday, made for everyone. The Earth - our planet - has completed another cycle. Everyone is affected! So everyone is included.

And as for food, you can have ANYTHING you like. The more the merrier. And mix cuisines! You can have sushi, curry, burritos, pizza, pad thai, bratwurst, ceviche, and more. My recommendation is buffet style. And don't forget the drinks. Have beer from Belgium and Germany. Have wine from Italy, America, South Africa. Have bai jiu from China, sake from Japan, mead from Poland. Go crazy; the sky is the limit. Celebrate life. Celebrate the world and its people, and congratulations on making it another year!
