Why shouldn’t there be a female president? I didn’t personally understand the controversy. After all, my generation of women didn’t see artists, authors, or scientists need to sign their work under a male name. My generation of women didn’t enter the workforce with only two options: secretary or teacher. We are, quite possibly, the first generation of women to see and believe that our options are limitless.

As a society, we have seen a break in the mold of the traditional family. However, mothering isn’t limited to a child’s family dynamic. In fact, often we as adults continue to look for maternal guidance.

Have you ever wondered exactly how an oversized, egg-laying bunny made his way into a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Christ? It doesn’t seem quite right, does it? To get a look at the origin and evolution of Mister E. Bunny, we need to go way back to the Pagans and the Christians.

"April Fool's!" You'll hear Americans yell after their co-worker discovers his stapler in Jell-O. In Brazil April 1st is called Dia da Mentira or "Day of the lie,” while in France children tape a picture of a fish on their friends' backs and yell "Poisson d'Avril!" or "April fish!" The fish symbolizes a naive and easily caught (gullible) person. It's all in good fun and part of a time honored tradition dating back to ancient times.

In 1999 the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed March 21 World Poetry Day. It's a day set aside to honor the art form and recognize its contribution to not only literature but also music, theater, dance, and the visual arts.

This year's Vernal Equinox falls on the heels of a snowstorm in the Northeast, making it almost laughable to mark the day as spring's first, which it is astronomically-speaking. Astronomers use equinoxes and solstices to mark seasonal shifts. These dates can change from year to year, which is why you may remember last year's spring began on March 19.

The holidays can be a wonderful time of year. There is nothing quite like the bright lights and cheerful music to put you in the gift buying mood, but it can also be a stressful time financially and that stress can last well into the new year.

This is the time of year when the week of Thanksgiving truly eases us from fall into winter. Thanksgiving this year is on November 24, 2016, on the fourth Thursday in November. It's a day of gratitude and giving thanks for Americans, and coincides with the changing of the seasons from autumn to winter.

Last November, my husband and I met my parents in Mérida, Mexico for an “Away From Home” Thanksgiving holiday. The multi-generational trip was delightful.
