Is that time again, close to the end of a year and in front of a new bright year ahead…
The last few days I’ve been reading all over social media all kind of frustrated and infuriated farewells to 2020. It was surely a year for historians to commemorate a special chapter as it brought us against conditions that we will not ever forget nor will be missed once they are gone.
Nevertheless, it was a year of significant teachings as we learned what is important and what is not. It cleared our thoughts, made us spend time with our families and loved ones and appreciate the stillness and tranquility, and appreciate what we should honor: the little things that fill our lives with essence and purpose.
It is now known as a super fruit, for its antioxidants, flavonoids, and other compounds valuable for our bodies and mind.
But the pomegranate is an ancient red fruit, a symbol of fertility, prosperity, and regeneration for thousands of years in Greece and Greek mythology.
During Christmas, you can see pomegranates everywhere as well as in households hanging this gorgeous fruit above the main entrance door.
Another custom has pomegranates to be hardly smashed against the pavement in front of the door. The longer the seeds spread the better luck for the household as they represent affluence and luck.
2021 Cheers to a new bright year!
Next year holds the hopes and wishes for the whole planet with a good reason. I deeply believe for it to be a year full of optimism, new plans not to forget more hugs, and better days spent outdoors with family and friends.
Cheers to a whole new year of positive thinking and a clear way towards new pathways and resolutions. Cheers to you!

They were of another ethnicity and the regime did not allow strangers in the country. Maria within a month renounced her born in nationality and married John so she could stay with him. They’ve created a family and when the regime fell, Maria’s parents returned. All reunited, they’ve created a beautiful life together… Continue reading
