Quote from: pyewacket on December 04, 2015, 12:33:34 AMIt's that time of year *again*. If the season irritates, brings joy, has special memories, or unique traditions for any of you, please feel free to post your sentiments here. Favorite song, movie, joke, poem, story, or if you find something that makes you smile or grind your gears- we want to know. Consider it holiday therapy.

Quote from: sputniknews.comBuddhists across Russia are celebrating Zula Khural, or the Candle Festival, dedicated to the passing into nirvana of the founder of the Gelugpa school, Bogdo Tsongkhapa.It is believed that the philosopher went into meditation and reached nirvana on the 25th day of the first winter month in the lunar calendar.During the meditation, numerous rays were seen emanating from his body.A thousand candles will be traditionally lit to symbolize the light of the Buddhist teachings.For three days Buddhist temples will be holding divine services and Buddhist believers will be bringing their offerings to the Teacher.Read more: http://sputniknews.com/voiceofrussia/2012_12_07/Buddhist-fest-in-Russia/
Quote from: ItsOver on December 04, 2015, 10:20:34 AMGreat idea, PW! I was passing through the Dayton area yesterday, seeing family, before heading back down south. One holiday tradition I greatly enjoy in the area is Angel Night, held in the historic Calvary Cemetery and Chapel. It's a night of choruses and illuminated angel memorials throughout the hilly resting site. Being an old site, there are a number of gorgeous, angel memorial tributes which are illuminated for the one night only, with respectful tours. All the while, a number of local choral groups perform at a small, beautiful chapel.It was a cold but absolutely gorgeous night that really was quite remarkable. This year, down below Calvary hill, the Carillon Tower was lit up, symbolizing a Christmas tree. Truly special.

Quote from: ziznak on December 10, 2015, 11:46:44 AMBe careful "It's Over" and make sure you check to make sure "Angel Night" doesn't take a turn for the worst down the road... I have this vision of you suffering cardiac arrest someday when you show up to find it's now called "Angel Night with George Noory."
