"We are beings interwoven with stories, embroidered with threads of voices, history, philosophy and science, laws and legends. Therefore, reading will continue to take care of us if we take care of it. What saves us cannot disappear. Books help us..."

"Somos seres entretejidos de relatos, bordados con hilos de voces, de historia, de filosofía y de ciencia, de leyes y leyendas. Por eso, la lectura seguirá cuidándonos si cuidamos de ella. No puede desaparecer lo que nos salva. Los libros nos recuerdan, serenos y siempre dispuestos a desplegarse ante nuestros ojos, que la salud de las palabras enraíza en las editoriales, en las librerías, en los círculos de lecturas compartidas, en las bibliotecas, en las escuelas. Es alli donde imaginamos el futuro que nos une".

Happy mother's day!!🫶🌹

La festa della mamma ha un’origine molto antica, ma è sempre stata celebrata in maggio. Si celebrava già in epoca pagana, al tempo dei Greci e dei Romani, dove era legata al culto delle divinità femminili e della fertilità e segnava il rapido passaggio dal gelido e bianco inverno alla colorata e calda estate .

Quel est l'origine du 1er avril ?
Le 1er avril est l'expression d'un début d'année : il traduit un soulagement avec l'arrivée du printemps après les longs mois d'hiver et il a été pendant longtemps associé à la nouvelle année. Jusqu’au XVIe siècle, le jour de l’an n’était pas uniformisé : le changement d’année avait lieu à Noël par endroit mais aussi le 25 mars (correspondant à la fête de l’Annonciation) ou encore à Pâques, donc autour du 1er avril.

Happy Easter!

As in many ancient cultures, Ukrainians worshipped a sun god, Dazhboh. The sun was important - it warmed the earth and thus was a source of all life. Eggs decorated with nature symbols became an integral part of spring rituals, serving as benevolent talismans.
In pre-Christian times, Dazhboh was one of the major deities in the Slavic pantheon; birds were the sun god's chosen creations, for they were the only ones who could get near him. Humans could not catch the birds, but they did manage to obtain the eggs the birds laid. Thus, the eggs were magical objects, a source of life. The egg was also honored during rite-of-Spring festivals––it represented the rebirth of the earth. The long, hard winter was over; the earth burst forth and was reborn just as the egg miraculously burst forth with life. The egg therefore, was believed to have special powers.
