Certain numbers were considered sacred, holy, or magical by the ancient Egyptians, particularly 2, 3, 4, 7, and their multiples and sums . Can you name the only number that has the same number of characters as its value in the English language? Here’s a hint: what month of the year hosts EARTH DAY?
The beginning of my favorite month! Why you ask? Well……
My parents were married on April Fool’s Day (1944) and me and Dude were married on April 4th (44 years yeah, wow) and then there is Easter which usually falls into the month of April but occasionally its been known to sneak in early at the end of March. Such as the dates below:
22nd March 1818 – 30th March 1902 – 31st March 2002 – 31st March 2013 31st March 2024 4-5-2015 Easter is coming…Happy Easter ♥ have a crackin’ Easter Everyone!
Moving on through my love of April, both my rl chidlren were born in the month of April (son born April 22nd , daughter born April 25th) and one of my most passionate causes EARTH DAY global observance April 22nd.
So you can understand why April is packed full of fun and celebrations for me.
Enjoy your own April ! and don’t forget April Showers bring May flowers!
Easter comes around in the spring, along with new life, new flowers, and when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Eastar, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, involving the season of the growing sun and new birth. The ‘Easter’ Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, since the rapid reproduction rates of the hare and rabbit can not be denied.
Starting in a NEW Virtual World is like having Spring open up to you with each new grid you try. There will be a new avatar look, new clothing, new friends, new places to explore and new plans to make for your new self. Some use the same avatar name in every grid they go into (if possible, the new Second Life register only allows one name now, no last names) and some may choose a new and different name for each grid.
One constant in all grids is the FREEBIE. Seems all new grids set out some Freebies at their welcome center or donate a full sim to setting out Freebies. Freebies are acquired by buying the box of goodies for 0$ or by taking a free copy. Freebies can be skins, shapes, clothing, homes, furniture, animations, scripts, landscaping just about anything made. Another way to find Freebies is to explore shops through out the grid, many shop owners offer a free gift (freebie) set by their shop entrance and sometimes these shop freebies are the best of the best. If the search is working in the new grid you’ve entered do a search for “Freebies” and see what pops up.
New beginnings and Freebies…. what could be more fun? Happy Easter everyone!!!
