Christmas and New Year, Swiss Style

Age-old Christmas and New Year’s customs are alive in well in many towns and villages across Switzerland.
People in the village of Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland take to the streets on December 25 dressed in costumes meant to frighten away evil spirits.

The characters are part of a pagan ritual - repeated on January 1 - called “Pelzmartiga”.

Child eater
Some of the figures wear fur (pelz = fur) and frightening masks, and wander through Kandersteg rattling chains and ringing bells. There are wild beasts, “rag men” and even a “child eater”.

They are reminders of the natural dangers, disease and poverty which once plagued the village.

There are similar events, called “Tricheln”, held between Christmas and New Year in the towns and villages at the eastern end of Lake Brienz. Town folk use bells and drums to scare away the forces of darkness.

The events culminate on December 28 in the “Uebersitz” when people from the whole region bring their noisemakers to Meiringen and march through the streets to chase away any demons still lurking about.

And in the western Bernese town of Laupen, the tradition is known as “Achetringele”, or bell-ringers. A group of schoolboys descend on the old town from the castle swinging and rattling large bells.

Onlookers beaten
Other boys carrying homemade brooms and pigs’ bladders accompany them. After farewell speeches are made to see out the old year, they beat onlookers until their brooms and bladders are in tatters.

Things don’t quite get so out of hand in Wil in the eastern canton of St Gallen. Many people in the town hang oil or candlelit lanterns outside their homes on New Year’s Eve.

Shortly after dusk, hundreds of children proceed through the town carrying their own handmade lanterns, singing hymns. The tradition was originally known as the “inspection of the lanterns”, when a committee went door to door to ensure compliance with a regulation on emergency lighting.

In Scuol in the Lower Engadine, villagers take part in the custom known as “Glümeras”. They put homemade candles in pieces of bark or walnut shells, and let them float in the village fountains.

The origin of the tradition has long been forgotten, but it’s believed to be closely tied to pagan rituals marking the winter solstice.

New Year's day in Philippines

New Year's day in Philippines or we say that Bagong Taon, are celebrated at the middle of the night called Bisperas ng bagong taon and celebrated together with the family and lots of food on the table called media noche(counterpart of noche buena) they have round shaped foods, and 12 round shaped various kinds of fruits and which are the most include lechon baboy(suckling roasted pig) at the middle on the table. Adults and Children light the firecrakers and fireworks, there are many different kinds of fireworks, like sinturon ni Hudas for small children watusi. Before the midnight the fireworks and firecrakers start. The New Year makes our celebration noisy and colorful and full of enjoyment coz the other year come.

In the other, there are also practices some people do, which are bring fortune, good luck, prosperity in the new year, some people jump at exactly 12 midnight, as they believed that they will make them grow taller, some people of their house keeping lights on, for more luck and bright future for a year and eating 12 round shaped fruits. People say that is how your whole year will be like.

Christmas Symbols Capital of the Philippines

Christmas Time in Tangub is always celebrated with great merriment and colorful activities. This is possible because of the one of a kind display of indigenous and low cost giant Christmas Symbols at our city plaza and highway barangays for competition. Today, Tangub City has gained another tagline as the Christmas Symbols Capital of the Phils.” Recent reports from the Department of Tourism indicated that Tangub City is included in their calendar of activities as one of the tourism destinations in the country during the “Christmas Season. Foreign and local tourists came in by busloads every night in order to experience and witness these yearly festivities in a very native setting. A dramatic increase of our tourist arrivals has been experienced. It is perceived that the contributing factors for the influx of the tourists during this year is because of the unique interpretation and presentation of the different Christmas symbols of various shapes & sizes lavishly displayed at our plaza and barangays, a really breathtaking sight to behold that catches everyone’s eye and imagination.

Christmas in Switzerland

In this tiny Alpine country in the heart of Europe Christmas celebration stretches much longer. A tinkling of a silver bell heralds the arrival of Christkindli - a white clad angel, with a face veil held in place by a jeweled crown. The tree candles are lit as she enters each house and hands out presents from the basket held by her child helpers.Christmas celebrations in Switzerland do not differ very much from those in other western European nations and the United States. However, the customs in Switzerland's four different linguistic regions (German, French, and Italian) tend to resemble those of their immediate neighbors, Germany and Austria for the German-speaking part, France for the French-speaking cantons (states) and Italy for the canton of Ticino and southern valleys of the Grisons.There is an interesting difference in comparison with American customs: Santa Claus plays a much smaller part at Christmas. In the German and French-speaking parts of the country, his role is taken over by the "Christkind" or "Le petit Jésus," the Christ child, a beautiful, radiant, angel-like being with wings, dressed in white with a shining crown and a magic wand. According to popular belief, it represents little Jesus. Though sometimes, it is connected with an angel bearing a light or star who heralded the birth of Christ at Bethlehem. The Christ child also has the attributes of a fairy (wand and wings). Little children are told that this person -and not Santa Claus- brings the tree and the gifts on Christmas Eve. That is why small children do not get to see the tree before the actual celebration. Bigger children, however, help the parents decorate the tree. At the foot of the decorated tree, a creche is often placed with wooden or ceramic figures representing the adoration of Jesus in the manger at Bethlehem, with shepherds, angels, sheep, a cow and a donkey and the three Magi.Usually parents decorate the tree on Christmas Eve. But more and more, especially young families are adopting the American way of having a decorated tree and electric lights all through December. (December is also "Advent" or "waiting" period: four candles on a green spruce wreath are the outward sign of this period, when a new candle is lit every Sunday until Christmas Eve. Advent is usually a hectic time with buying gifts, decorating tree and other ornaments, learning poems and songs, all contributing to the festivities of Christmas. After an early dinner, the whole family, ideally several generations, gathers around the tree. Songs and sometimes hymns are sung. Some read the birth passage from the bible. Gifts are exchanged. Those who are not too tired go to midnight mass which is always particularly festive. The most popular song heard during that time is "Silent Night, Holy Night," written and composed in Austria. The tree is always there on Christmas Eve. But depending on the region, Christmas gifts are exchanged on Christmas Day, January 1 or January 6 (Epiphany, when the three Magi were said to have visited the Christ child).The name Santa Claus comes from Sankt Nikolaus or Saint Nicolas (an early Christian bishop from Myra in present-day Turkey, the protector of children). This friendly figure does not play a role at Christmas, but appears on December 6, the Patron Saint's Day. In the Swiss German part, he is known as "Samichlaus" and he visits homes and schools, distributing sweets, fruits and nuts to well-behaved children and giving good advice to the less well-behaved. In Switzerland, he is not accompanied by a reindeer, but very often by a donkey and a dark-clad assistant. The children assume that they come from the snowy mountains.

Filipino Christmas Tradition

It is a Filipino tradition for children to visit their godparents and elderly relativeson Christmas day. This child is showing respect for his godmother by taking her hand to his forehead. In return, he receives a blessing or a gift.

It is probably the longest in the world. It begins as early as September and ends as late as end of January. With the advent of the "-ber" months (Septem-ber, Octo-ber...), one can already hear strains of Christmas carols everywhere - in the malls, on the streets and even in offices. Christmas is, as the cliche goes, just around the corner. It seems that Filipinos cannot wait for Christmas.
Christmas in the Philippines is a mixture of Western and native Filipino traditions. Santa Claus, the Christmas tree, sending Christmas cards, and singing carols have all been inherited from the cultures of the West. However, these have all been adapted to fit the nature and personality of the Filipino people.
Christmas Eve in the Philippines is one of the traditions most families celebrate. It is a night without sleep and a continuous celebration moving right into Christmas Day. As December 24th dawns, the last Mass of Simbang Gabi is attended; then preparation begins for Noche Buena, which is a family feast that takes place after midnight.
The Noche Buena is very much like an open house celebration. Family, friends, relatives, and neighbors drop by to wish every family member "Maligayang Pasko" (Merry Christmas). Food is in abundance, often served in buffet style. Guests or visitors partake of the food prepared by the host family (even though they are already full or bloated!). Among the typical foods prepared in the Philippines during Christmas are: lechon (roasted pig), pancit, barbecue, rice, adobo, cakes (Western and native rice cakes), lumpia, etc. There is also an abundance of San Miguel beer, wine, and liquor, which makes the celebration of Christmas indeed intoxicating!
The streets are well lit and are full of activities. The children run in and out of the house to play, to eat, and to play again. The Christmas Eve gathering provides an opportunity for a reunion of immediate and distant family members. Some families may choose to exchange gifts at this time; others wait until Christmas day.
In general, the center of a family's Christmas gathering is always the lola, the endearing term used for a family matriarch or grandmother, who is deeply respected, highly revered, and always present. Filipinos remember how their lola had their children form a line and step up to receive a small gift of some coins. The older the child, the more coins he or she receives.
Some families have a talent show during Christmas Eve celebration. Children are asked to perform. One might sing a Christmas song, others might play a musical instrument, or others may recite a poem or do a dance. The celebration continues until about 6 o'clock in the morning. Those who cannot attend Mass the night before will go to the morning Mass on Christmas day.
Christmas day is a popular day for children to visit their uncles, aunts, godmothers, and godfathers. At each home they are presented with a gift, usually candy, money, or a small toy. Food and drinks are also offered at each stop. It is a day of family closeness, and everyone wishes good cheer and glad tidings.

Christmas for me is the ultimate reminder on how much God loves us, that He gave His only Son Jesus Christ to be our Savior.

A time for sharing our blessing to our family, friends and to others. - Celebrate Life/My Journey.*Christmas for me is not the new things that we have and enjoying the bounties in life but remembering that someone is born to redeem us from our sins and making sure of our salvation Teebob.*The true meaning of christmas for me is sharing, giving, expressing love to one another, and remebering that there is one person up there, who is born on the 25th of december to save us from everything . A lot of people told me that christmas is for kids. yes, it's true but I prefer to say that christmas is for everybody and sharing love to one another is the keyword remeber, "you can give without loving but you can't love without giving ". Alaverde33*Christmas is an annual holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus. The date of the celebration is traditional and is not considered to be his actual date of birth. Christmas festivities often combine the commemoration of Jesus birth with various secular customs, many of which have been influenced by earlier winter festivals.In most places around the world Christmas day happens on December 25.

*-A Christmas for me is the time to celebrate the birth of Jesus who we believe who is our great savior and who died for us because of our sins. As we believe he is our Almighty Father, during Christmas time, whoever who is our enemy is we forgive them and realized its time to show love, kind, goodness and being generous to someone we care about and that is why we exchange gifts during Christmas time and get together with our family and relatives. Even though, we doesn't get any gifts from somebody else that we gave one, its just alright as long as we show love to them, its not only in Christmas time to show of affection to somebody else, anytime we can do it, but because it is already also our tradition as Christian people who believes we need to give a gift to someone during Christmas time specially to our family and friends. Well, it is nice also we have a Christmas celebration, so that we can receieve some gifts from someone who loves us and they can show their affections to us even by just giving gifts or a Christmas card.gmunchkin-*
*-Christmas is a time of gift-giving, when children hope to receive presents from their parents, other family, and friends and the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ at once a time for joyous celebration and solemnity.

2 floating eggs

Hay! today I don't know what should I post here, Im just so tired last night, always awake to entertain to baby and now I have nothing to do here, felt boring while my baby sleeping this morning. Noon time I joined my baby lying on couch and we watched TV and my baby CD and I fall asleep the hour was so fast and I woke up almost 3pm and I felt hungry, I go to the kitchen and look what I've cooked?

2 eggs floating with malonggay(don't know in english name) and with red pepperoni and I just put also the meat seasoning and black pepper so that a little bit spicy, the taste was so perfect it's delicious! Im really so hungry! I like this malonggay. Im lucky yesterday hubby and I went to the Indian, it was good the have stocked, I really missed this, within only 3 minutes! hmmm really yummy for me.

Taking care of yourself after giving birth thru Cesarean Operation

There are 2 ways of giving birth 1 is thru Ceasarian Operation and 2 is thru Vaginal Birth. Pain medications can help during the first few days, the medication given are considered safe during breastfeeding. The nurses will assist you in getting up the first time, learning to cough or huff to keep your chest clear, dealing with the gas that can follow surgery, and learning to hold your baby in ways that are comfortable for you. If assistance is not available when you need it, press your call button and ask for help.
All new parents can benefit from assistance at home after childbirth, but for a woman who has had a cesarean birth such help is essential for at least the first week. Not only are you undergoing a transformation to a nonpregnant state and learning to care for your new baby, you are recovering from major surgery. Adequate help, allowing you to rest often during the day, can make a great difference in how quickly you feel strong and well. Taking care of yourself and your baby should be your only duties until you feel ready to take on more.

I as am delivered my child thru Cesarean these activity restrictions are usually recommended as what the midwife and doctor said are as follows.

Limit stair climbing as much as possible.
Don't lift anything heavier than your baby for the first two weeks.

10 Health Tips (The Basics to Practice Every Day)

Dudes! Read this, thought this is also important in our daily lives, specially if you are health concious. So these are the tips, I wanna share you what I have read this morning!

"He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything." -Arabian Proverb

1. Move More
Make it a daily challenge to find ways to move your body. Climb stairs if given a choice between that and escalators or elevators. Walk your dog; chase your kids; toss balls with friends, mow the lawn. Anything that moves your limbs is not only a fitness tool, it's a stress buster. Think 'move' in small increments of time. It doesn't have to be an hour in the gym or a 45-minute aerobic dance class or tai chi or kickboxing. But that's great when you're up to it. Meanwhile, move more. Thought for the day: Cha, Cha, Cha…. Then do it!

2. Cut Fat
Avoid the obvious such as fried foods, burgers and other fatty meats (i.e. pork, bacon, ham, salami, ribs and sausage). Dairy products such as cheese, cottage cheese, milk and cream should be eaten in low fat versions. Nuts and sandwich meats, mayonnaise, margarine, butter and sauces should be eaten in limited amounts. Most are available in lower fat versions such as substitute butter, fat free cheeses and mayonnaise. Thought for the day: Lean, mean, fat-burning machine…. Then be one!

3. Quit Smoking
The jury is definitely in on this verdict. Ever since 1960 when the Surgeon General announced that smoking was harmful to your health, Americans have been reducing their use of tobacco products that kill. Just recently, we've seen a surge in smoking in adolescents and teens. Could it be the Hollywood influence? It seems the stars in every movie of late smoke cigarettes. Beware. Warn your children of the false romance or 'tough guy' stance of Hollywood smokers. Thought for the day: Give up just one cigarette…. the next one.

4. Reduce Stress
Easier said than done, stress busters come in many forms. Some techniques recommended by experts are to think positive thoughts. Spend 30 minutes a day doing something you like. (i.e.,Soak in a hot tub; walk on the beach or in a park; read a good book; visit a friend; play with your dog; listen to soothing music; watch a funny movie. Get a massage, a facial or a haircut. Meditate. Count to ten before losing your temper or getting aggravated. Avoid difficult people when possible. Thought for the day: When seeing red, think pink clouds….then float on them.

5. Protect Yourself from Pollution
If you can't live in a smog-free environment, at least avoid smoke-filled rooms, high traffic areas, breathing in highway fumes and exercising near busy thoroughfares. Exercise outside when the smog rating is low. Exercise indoors in air conditioning when air quality is good. Plant lots of shrubbery in your yard. It's a good pollution and dirt from the street deterrent. Thought for the day: 'Smoke gets in your eyes'…and your mouth, and your nose and your lungs as do pollutants….hum the tune daily.

6. Wear Your Seat Belt
Statistics show that seat belts add to longevity and help alleviate potential injuries in car crashes. Thought for the day: Buckle down and buckle up.

7. Floss Your Teeth
Recent studies make a direct connection between longevity and teeth flossing. Nobody knows exactly why. Perhaps it's because people who floss tend to be more health conscious than people who don't? Thought for the day: Floss and be your body's boss.

8. Avoid Excessive Drinking
While recent studies show a glass of wine or one drink a day (two for men) can help protect against heart disease, more than that can cause other health problems such as liver and kidney disease and cancer. Thought for the day: A jug of wine should last a long time.

9. Keep a Positive Mental Outlook
There's a definitive connection between living well and healthfully and having a cheerful outlook on life. Thought for the day: You can't be unhappy when you're smiling or singing.

10. Choose Your Parents Well
The link between genetics and health is a powerful one. But just because one or both of your parents died young in ill health doesn't mean you cannot counteract the genetic pool handed you. Thought for the day: Follow these basic tips for healthy living and you can better control your own destiny.
