Christmas FAQ: Learning More About Christmas

It's most likely that December 25 became Christmas Day by a slick political move. By three or four centuries after Christ, Christians were numerous, and perhaps in an effort to stop religious bickering and unite the Christians with the pagans, the pagan holiday of Saturnalia (approximately December 25) was combined with the biggest Christian celebration of the year: the birthday of Jesus. Presto, a universal holiday!

Thanksgiving - Understanding The Holiday

Thanksgiving to most folks means family and friends and Turkey, or maybe beer and football. Many do not know or even care about the significance of the Holiday. Way back in the 1600's a group of people who were members of the English Separatist Church (Puritan's) in England fled their homeland to escape religious persecution. They boarded a ship and sailed to Holland in the Netherlands. In Holland the people enjoyed a brief time free from the religious persecution they faced back in England, but they soon became frustrated with the Dutch peoples bad morals and what they considered sinful lifestyles......Read On

What Happened After The First Thanksgiving?

Various stories of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving exist. Some are conflicting while others have been greatly embellished. But, everyone concurs that the first winter at Plymouth was brutal, and deadly, with half of the colony losing their lives.

While there are many stories that have emerged around that first Thanksgiving, you may not have ever heard what you are about to read. It is more than a story. It is based on accounts from the diary of William Bradford, the first governor of Plymouth.....Read On

Sudoku - A Worldwide Phenomenon

If you have heard of Sudoku, then chances are you have been living in a bunker for the last year or so. Sudoku is a new craze that is taking the puzzle world by storm. It’s gone from a little known topic, to having over a million searches a month on the web… that’s as much as Paris Hilton. For those of you who don’t know what Sudoku is, it’s essentially a game of numbers. You start with a 9 x 9 grid that is split up into 9, 3 x 3 grids. This initial grid will have a series of numbers strewn over it in what seems to be a completely random madness. However, there is a method behind the madness here. You see, you need to ensure that you have the numbers 1-9 in each of the 3 x 3 grids, however you cannot have a number in the same line as itself in another grid....Read On

Retro Sweets: Ten Delicious Favorites from Childhood

A Brief History of Pizza

Visitors to Italy prior to the 1880s would have a difficult time relating to what passed for pizza at the time. Although the pies had been made in the area for centuries, many ingredients considered essential by modern Americans were absent. First of all, tomatoes were not native to Europe. It was not until the discovery of the Americas and the discovery of tomatoes that it was even possible to add tomato sauce. Even then, it took many years to convince the people that tomatoes were not poisonous. A white sauce was used as a topping until the 17th century. Cheese was not used at all until around 1889......Read On

Three Lateral Thinking Puzzles

Lateral thinking - what is it? The word was invented by Edward DeBono in 1967. Somewhere along the way it became a part of the English language (it's in the Oxford English Dictionary and others now). DeBono says there are several ways to define it. Lateral thinking is a way of attacking problems from other angles, as opposed to the more traditional linear and logical ways. Debono uses chess as an example of the latter, where logic normally suffices - because the pieces are a given. In real life we mostly just assume the pieces are given, when really we need to change those pieces or look beyond them for the most useful solutions......Read On
