Daily Quote: December 16, 2021

To be interested in the changing seasons
is a happier state of mind
than to be hopelessly in love with spring.

~ George Santayana
Spanish – Philosopher / December 16, 1863 – September 26, 1952

Holidays and Celebrations:

Porte Musings:

Today is remembered as the beginning of the war of independence for the USA as they celebrate Boston Tea Party Day. An act of rebellion against a tax on tea. When I went to Boston, I was quite disappointed that the actual location of the Boston Tea Party isn’t a tourist attraction. Instead it’s now reclaimed land with no port.

In South Africa there is a different type of celebration: Day of Reconciliation. Returning rights and freedoms to the indigenous people. As with any transition of power there were many difficulties. Maybe one day all people will be equal regardless of the colour of their skin.

And today is my favorite day: National Chocolate Covered Anything Day. So be certain to enjoy something covered in chocolate. 😉
