There are some elements that appear in every celebration regardless of the religion or culture to remind us about our humanity, our responsibility and our faith; such as: Respect - Kindness - Patience - Courtesy - Discipline - Hard Work - Courage - Generosity - Perseverance - Compassion -Faith -Equality - Law - Freedom.
And in every celebration, there must be LIGHT. there must be FOOD of our labor, BREAD, to break with grateful hearts, SALT, to zest our lives, OlIVE OIL for blessings, SWEETS to make us smile, WINE to make us laugh, and TEA to make us relax. And, last but not least: MUSIC to warm our hearts, SINGING to lift our spirit, and DANCING to celebrate life.
So, to be prepared for the coming year’s celebrations, there are some things you must have readily available in your pantry, and a good Pantry cookbook to put all of these together! You will find them here, in Holiday Connections.World
