The Dragon boats for the races are adorned with large colorful flags and flowers. They race in the river to the beat of a drum, providing the viewers with an exciting and colorful sight. Westerners call the competition ‘Dragon Boat Races’ because of the way the boats look. Strongly resembling Chinese dragons, their long narrow bodies are decorated with a dragon’s head and tail. The average boat length is about 20–35 meters. Each boat can carry from 20 to 60 paddlers, a drummer and a steerer. Tradition says the winning team will receive good fortune the following year.

Easter Basket Ideas For Grown-Ups

Somewhere between not believing in the Tooth Fairy and Santa, we gave up on the Easter Bunny too. It’s no wonder! As we got older, Easter got less and less about hunting for the Easter Eggs, more about hiding them. Less about dyeing eggs, and more about minimizing the mess younger kids made as they dyed. It’s time to take Easter back for the adults! What better year than one where Easter falls on April Fools Day?! Here are our favorite Easter basket ideas for grown-ups.

Your Guide to International Women’s Day Gifts & Celebration

23 Feb

March 8th is right around the corner; so many are looking for Women’s Day gifts and planning celebrations. Others aren’t sure what the holiday is all about. Whether you’re the former or the latter, a little history about the celebration is in order. International Women’s Day is an official holiday celebrated around the world on March 8th. It commemorates women’s long-lasting fight for equal rights, and their outstanding contributions to the world. The holiday recognizes their accomplishments in all spheres of life, from economic and political, to cultural and artistic.

Women’s struggle for equality is not the story of a single feminist or organization, but the efforts of everyone who cares about human rights. International Women’s Day means different things to different people. For some it’s a call-to-action to empowering women around the world to stand up for themselves. However, for others it’s similar to Mother’s Day: a time to honor mothers, wives, daughters, and colleagues with Women’s Day Gifts. There’s no wrong way to celebrate, no one person to notice: it’s a day for all women. Everything from a hug to a gift basket is a welcome way to thank them for being amazing.
