Easter in Poland

This celebration involves many unique and joyful rituals, including plenty of homemade delicacies. The first sign of approaching Easter is a large number of branches and dried flowers being brought to the church. One week before Easter, Palm Sunday takes place (according to Catholic tradition, the day marks Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem). Since palm trees are rare in Poland, churchgoers often bring ‘palms’ made of colorful woven dried branches. On the Saturday before Easter Sunday, Poles paint hard-boiled eggs (called pisanki). Some use store-bought kits which make the coloring and decorating easier, others continue to make dyes in the traditional way – with boiled onion skins. Another Saturday activity is the preparation of Easter baskets: lined with a white lace […]

Poland during celebrations

How to Polish people celebrate Christmas, Carnival, and Easter There are many traditions of Christmas and Easter in Poland but just a few around Carnival. The greatest number of Christmas traditions concern Christmas Eve. According to tradition, on the table should be twelve dishes, where the only kind of meat is fish. Everyone around the table should try all of the dishes. The most typical dish is carp which can be served in various versions, usually fried. Other traditional dishes are beetroot soup with ravioli, herring in sour cream, poppy seed cake or sauerkraut with mushrooms. Typically one place setting should be left free for an unexpected guest which symbolizes every hungry or alone person who spends Christmas without family […]

Licenciatura desvaloriza 22,8%

O prémio salarial dos trabalhadores com educação superior encolheu 22,8 pontos percentuais entre 2007 e 2016. É a maior queda entre os países da OCDE, indica o “Employment Outlook 2019”, publicado esta quinta-feira. Portugal também está entre os países onde a probabilidade de um jovem trabalhador com formação superior ter um emprego com salário baixo mais aumentou. Ter formação superior é sinónimo de vantagem salarial para os trabalhadores, mas esse prémio está a encolher e Portugal é o país onde mais diminuiu na última década. A conclusão é da Organização para a Cooperação e o Desenvolvimento Económico (OCDE), que no “Employment Outlook 2019”, publicado esta quinta-feira – cujo tema é o futuro do trabalho -, analisa a evolução do prémio […]

Passadeiras LGBTI+ em Campolide

A medida é avançada depois de a Autoridade Nacional de Segurança Rodoviária e a Prevenção Rodoviária Portuguesa considerarem que as passadeiras LGBTI+ são ilegais. A Autoridade Nacional de Segurança Rodoviária (ANSR) recomendou à junta de freguesia de Campolide a remoção das cores das passadeiras pintadas no último fim de semana em homenagem à bandeira LGBTI+. “Os sinais de trânsito não podem ser acompanhados de motivos decorativos nem de objectos que possam prejudicar a sua visibilidade ou reconhecimento, ou ainda perturbar a atenção do condutor”, lê-se num comunicado ao qual o PÚBLICO teve acesso. Uma vez que as cores do arco-íris estavam pintadas nos intervalos das habituais faixas brancas das passadeiras, o presidente da junta de freguesia de Campolide, António Couto, […]

Traditions in France

Christmas and Easter in France. The main celebration of Christmas in France is on the evening of the 24th of December. This is also on the eve that the presents are offered. Most of the time, it is simply a long family dinner which lasts until the early morning of the 25th. It begins as a basic aperitif with champagne and white wine. After we eat some seafood, that is called foie gras, then a trou Normand is served. It is made of vanilla ice cream and calva. In the part of France from which I am from, the biggest Carnival is the one of Dunkerque. It takes place from January to March. Nevertheless, the main and noisiest part of […]

Mortes maternas poderão aumentar

A Direccção-Geral da Saúde diz que está a “acompanhar atentamente a evolução da situação”. A Direcção-geral da Saúde (DGS) advertiu hoje que as mortes maternas poderão aumentar em Portugal devido às características da população de grávidas e parturientes e defendeu a necessidade de inquéritos epidemiológicos que “analisem em detalhe cada morte”. A taxa de mortalidade materna aumentou em 2017 para níveis que não se verificavam desde 1991, segundo dados divulgados no domingo pelo Jornal de Notícias, que revelam que só nesse ano morreram nove mulheres durante a gravidez, parto ou no pós-parto. Em comunicado hoje divulgado, a DGS afirma que está a “acompanhar atentamente a evolução da situação, reforçando a necessidade de inquéritos epidemiológicos, que analisem em detalhe cada morte”. […]

Traditions in The Netherlands

The traditions are getting more and more commercialized. People from the Netherlands are proud of their traditions but most of all it is just about earning money In general, we really don’t celebrate Christmas as a big tradition in the Netherlands. Of course, we decorate our houses and city streets with a lot of lights. And most of the people do also have a nice Christmas tree at home and spend Christmas dinner together, but that’s all. No presents underneath the Christmas tree or the belief in Santa Claus. Carnival is quite big in the Netherlands and especially in the southern provinces. The names of the cities change to some funny traditional names. Through the whole year, people prepare the […]

Travel around the coast

Something that a lot of people do in the summer in Madeira. The most popular way to travel is to rent a car and split the cost, making it quite cheap transportation. However it can be hard to drive in the mountains, and if you don’t have a great car and a lot of people you can get stuck on a hill. A bus is also an option, somehow they can easily drive on even the smallest and steepest roads, but it can be quite expensive to get a ticket. The last option is to ask for a lift on the road. It is actually pretty safe here so there is no problem with doing that, and it is free. […]

Take what you want, but just know that some little mistakes are hidden! To begin, Madeira is a very cold Island, because It’s climate is very fresh.

Madeira in the summer

The way there doesn’t even seem long because of the nice views. If I would have to describe the perfect summer day in Madeira, it would be something like this. Waking up before the sun is up, taking breakfast with me and going by car to Pico do Areeiro with a group of friends. There we would sit on the second highest point of Madeira and eat breakfast while watching the sunrise. After that, we would drive down the mountain through the beautiful Madeiran forest. Next stop would be Santana. There we would go visit the Madeira theme park. Of course, the park is pretty touristic, but spending a few hours there with friends could be fun. Seeing the typical […]

Vereda da Ponta de São Lourenço

There you can see huge cliffs reaching out of the sea. This eastern peninsula of the island is from volcanic origins, it consists mostly basalt stone but also limestone sediment formations. Because of the pretty dry climate and the exposure to northern winds, there is low vegetation. It looks very different from the other parts of the island and this is what makes it so special. A nice fact is that the name of the vereda comes from the name of João Gonçalves Zarco’s caravel, São Lourenço. Zarco was one of the three discoverers of Madeira. For me, this walk is definitely one that you NEED to do when you are in Madeira, it’s one of the most beautiful walks […]

How not waste a summer in Madeira

Let me give you some non-qualified tips for the months to come. To be honest, I have not been in Madeira during the hottest months of summer. My experience started in September what I would still call summer due to the heat. Madeira is very versatile and full of possible activities. That is the reason why I love this island. People who love the sea have several options to explore the Atlantic Ocean. Snorkeling and scuba diving let you discover the biodiversity of the sea dwellers. But not everyone likes to dive in the dark and deep ocean and some rather stay above the surface of the water, at least with their heads. There are still enough activities, such as […]

Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh: of the most famous artists of the 19th century. This fame is not only because his art, but also because of his life. He was born in 1853, in a village near the Belgian border. When starting adulthood he did not really know what to do. He first became a schoolteacher, then a book salesman, studied theology and became a preacher in a coal mine. He did not really do well in all these jobs and got fired for all of them. Eventually, his brother Theo convinced Vincent to become an artist after seeing the sketches he made. He moved around in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Paris before eventually moving to the village of Arles in France, […]
