Happy International Day Of The Girl

In 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution to declare October 11th as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognise girls’ rights and the unique challenges they face globally. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the challenges faced and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.  In short, adolescent girls have the right to a safe, educated, and healthy life, not only in their formative years but also as they mature into women. http://www.un.org/en/events/girlchild/background.shtml

This October 11th, the theme of the International Day of the Girl Child will focus on “EmPOWER girls: Before, during and after conflict”. Somewhere in the world, every 10 minutes a teenage girl dies as a result of violence. During humanitarian emergencies, gender-based violence often increases, subjecting girls to sexual and physical violence, child marriage, exploitation and trafficking. Girls in conflict zones are 90% more likely to be out of school when compared to girls in conflict-free countries.  http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/in-focus/girl-child

The United Nations use October 11th to get people behind the cause of empowering girls worldwide so that they can have better educations, better survival rates, better protection from child marriage and sexual assault and better health services. There is 1.1 billion girls in the world, and the UN fights to help those girls who are disadvantaged and discriminated against on a daily basis. They also want to highlight the struggle facing those living through crises. The day is more than just raising awareness it is also about collecting data about girls who have slipped through the cracks, so a better understanding about how they live and what they need is gained. One of the most vital issues facing young girls worldwide is that of child, an estimated 1 in 3 girls are married before they are 18, 1 in 7 before they are 15. http://metro.co.uk/2017/10/11/what-is-international-day-of-the-girl-and-how-is-it-recognised-6991352/

Easter & Easter Eggs- Did you know?

While the exact origins of the word Easter name are unknown, some sources claim the word Easter is derived from Eostre, a Germanic goddess of spring and fertility. http://www.history.com/topics/holidays/history-of-easter.Eostre’s, symbols were the hare and egg. Easter GreetingsShe was celebrated around the spring equinox. As Christianity spread throughout Europe, missionaries merged the festival of Eostre and the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection, as they did with many other pagan festivals and traditions…so Easter was born.

The image of the rabbit was changed into Oschter Haws by the Germans. Oschter Haws was a rabbit who would lay a nest of coloured eggs for good children on the night before Easter. In the 1700s German emigrants to American brought the legend with them, they are also responsible for the chocolate rabbit as they would make Oshter Haws pastries. As the legend and popularity of Oshter Haws spread, he soon became the Easter Bunny. http://www.irishwhiskeymuseum.ie/news/origins-easter-bunny/

The Fabergé eggs are likely the most famous decorative eggs, made in 1885 to 1917 by the Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé for Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II. The Eggs were  given Easter gifts. They commissioned roughly 50 eggs in that time, with 43 still surviving. An additional two Faberge eggs were planned for Easter 1918 but delivery was prevented by the Russian Revolution.

In 1847, chocolate maker and inventor Joseph Fry discovered he could create a chocolate paste that was mouldable by mixing cocoa powder, sugar and melted cocoa butter. http://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/food-and-drink/easter-treats-the-history-behind-your-chocolate-eggs-1.2584588  Fry produced the UK’s first chocolate Easter egg in 1873. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/whats-on/family-kids-news/easter-2017-why-eggs-celebrate-6997696?service=responsive

Did You Know?

  1. In America, over 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are made each year!! http://www.history.com/topics/holidays/history-of-easter
  2. Decorated ostrich eggs, estimated to be up to 5,000 years old, were found in the tombs of ancient Sumerians and Egyptians http://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/food-and-drink/easter-treats-the-history-behind-your-chocolate-eggs-1.2584588

The Globalisation Of St. Patrick

St Patrick Blog Image Beach


Both home and abroad, St Patricks Day celebrations have grown in stature and now with Irish bars, Community Groups and GAA Club meeting places common in so many world cities and towns, one might say that St Patricks Day has been truly globalised.  At home, these celebrations have extended to a four day festival, whilst Irish workers abroad, distant relatives, friends and colleagues are creating new and bigger events year on year.


On March 17th last year, the family and I travelled to the north Dublin coastal town of Skerries.  And what better place to be on this day than where according to folklore, the man himself and former slave of pirates, returned to Ireland as a missionary.   St Patrick Image 2

We began our walk on Red Island, which is now connected to the mainland and very much a peninsula, albeit by name.  From the 19th Century built Martello tower, we followed the trail down to the rocks where legend has it, St Patrick’s first step and footprint can still be seen.

Taking turns to place three fingers (symbolising the shamrock and the Christian Holy Trinity) into the water of the imprint, we made our secret wishes as tradition dictates.  Moving on we strolled down the coastline, coming back around to where the town begins to the south.

Timing our walk well, we found a great vantage point on the side of the main street for the imminent St Patrick Day Parade to follow, with time to top on refreshments and a few bags of vinegary chips to share.


Having lived and worked abroad I was often taken aback by the levels of participation in these festivities, not of Irish workers and students, but more that of other nationalities and their embracing of the day.  But it seems to me to be deeper than any one desire to be “Irish for a day” and rather a reflection of some tribal and ritual human instinct to celebrate as a whole and be thankful for our relationships and friends.  So maybe it can be said in these times, that St Patricks Day represents not just a celebration of being Irish, but very much a global celebration of Ireland, the appreciation of tradition, of shared values and a coming together of all.

Whether in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Riyadh, London, Melbourne or other, the global recognition of St Patricks Day will bring together country-folk, friends, colleagues and new faces from around the world.  So where will you be celebrating this year?

And while considering your future, where would you like to be when you celebrate next year?
