Traditions in my country

My favorite tradition of all in the U.K is the Notting Hill Carnival. Traditions in the UK vary depending on which part of the country you are from. Traditional religious festivities such as Christmas and Easter have less religious connotations attached to them due to an ever-increasing secular society. Corporate interest and late-stage capitalism have also averted the traditions of these celebrations, towards culture and industry of shopping and consuming. The traditions that occur in my family household, are quite simple nowadays. If you are from a religious family, then you might attend midnight mass on the 24th of December, however, we just drink some prosecco and watch a Christmas film or an episode of Only Fools and Horses, a British […]

Têm aulas sobre emoções

Identificar as emoções e aprender a geri-las desde pequenos é também uma forma de prevenir problemas na infância e adolescência, diz directora de escola de Leiria. Num congresso no ISCTE vai-se debater a empatia. Valentim, 7 anos, diz que está ali “para aprender a ficar mais alegre”. A alegria foi um dos sentimentos que estavam a trabalhar na aula a partir de um pequeno vídeo de animação. Da alegria foram até ao orgulho. “Sinto orgulho quando sinto que vou conseguir”, define Valentim, que dirá depois ao PÚBLICO que a “atitude” de que “gosta mais” é a paciência. “Às vezes fico impaciente porque o meu mano mais novo está sempre a interromper-me e não quero ficar assim.” Ao fim de quase […]

Christmas and Easter in Poland

12 dishes on Christmas Eve and buckets of water on Easter Monday, those are just an example of how we celebrate this special time in Poland. Christmas Christmas in Poland is celebrated for 3 days starting from Christmas Eve. Dinner starts with the first star in the sky, which refers to the Star of Bethlehem which the three kings saw on the way to the Infant Jesus. When the whole family is ready, we start by sharing wafer and make wishes, then we can start eating. Traditional dinner on this day consists of 12 meatless dishes and trying each of them should guarantee happiness during the next twelve months. Typical dishes, for example, are beetroot soup with small dumplings stuffed […]

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.

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 […]

Jadwiga Andegaweńska

Queen or king of Poland? Actually… both. How is this possible? Just look at the story of old Polish monarch from the 14th century. Jadwiga Andegaweńska known also as Queen Jadwiga or Saint Jadwiga was a third daughter of Louis the Great, King of Hungary and Poland, and Elizabeth of Bosnia. She was born between 1373 and 1374. At this time nobody supposed that she will become the King of Poland, as she was the third child and her father had only two thrones to be filled. However, the oldest sister died and that is why the King decided to give the throne of Poland to Jadwiga, especially when Polish people insisted to have their own King. She was crowned […]

Princess Sisi of Austria

Very popular with the Austrian people. Sisi was born on Christmas Eve in 1837 as the second daughter of Duke Maximilian and Duchess Ludovika in Bavaria, Germany. In 1853 she met her cousin Emperor Franz Joseph, who was going to marry her sister Helene. Franz Joseph of Austria fell in love with Sisi immediately and decided to marry her instead of her sister. They married, when Sisi was 16 years old. The marriage did not work out: Sisi was an independent girl and totally unprepared for the strict protocol at court, an ambitious stepmother and a busy husband who struggled to fight revolutionary and separatist tendencies in the Habsburg Empire. The court society of Vienna was making fun of her, […]

Maria Theresa

She became Empress of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The 13/05/1717 was a day Austrian history will never forget, it was the day the one and only female Empress in the Habsburg dynasty ever was born.

Actually, to clarify, officially her husband Franz Stephan the First was the Emperor, but she actively ruled the empire. Franz Stephan was only in charge of the Austrian finances. Maria Theresa is most known for making education compulsory but also establishing the potato as staple which was a great service for the Austrian society. The “Mrs. Emperor”, as she was called by the Austrians, was […]
