The Celebration of Life !

Chinese New Year Festival

A festival is an event, usually staged by a local community, which centers on some unique aspect of that community.

Among many religions, a feast or festival is a set of celebrations in honour of God or gods. A feast and a festival are historically interchangeable. However, the term "feast" has also entered common secular parlance as a synonym for any large or elaborate meal. When used as in the meaning of a festival, most often refers to a religious festival rather than a film or art festival.

On the High School, College and University Campuses:


At several College and University campuses, several International Students / Scholars have banded themselves into recognized student groups.  First this was a means to keep in touch with ones home, as the human connection between fellow citizens help'ed in the sociocultural transition.  None the less, and more importantly, these groups started to initiate their own social and cultural programs.  The ripple affect within the sociocultural academic ethos was awesome as it created a high character representation of their homeland and peoples and resulted in long term relationships after graduation with Americans.  Americans who got an up-front cultural education as a direct emotional consequence of freindships they and the International Students / Scholars formed together. In several instances, both in the private, as well as in the political sector these freindships had even a more profound impact on the American national consciousness in its foreign relations.  See the International and National Cultural Fiesta Movement web site.

Bastille Day: July 14th
France's July the 4th Celebration.


Painting by Jean-Pierre Houël (1735-1813), entitled Prise de la Bastille ("The Storming of the Bastille").

On every July 14th France goes into one of it's proud moments in both patriotic parades and outright full celebrations. Litterally Paris goes simply wilder than ever, and very few get the traditional hangovers that Americans do after our July 4th celebration. It must be beacuse what they are drinking, or have been aculturated to. Any way though it is something in which American expats have taken note of as being very important for them to likewise celebrated, and it is from them which are my sources.
How did this start....???
Well there were some prisoners who the Parisian public were aware due to them being popular, and King Louis XVI was screwing everything up with the very bad advise he was getting. Especially from his wife.
The economy hit its very bottom, and the Parisian public was likewise alerted to the fact of further impending food shortages. It was either bread or the King. Not with standing they were getting very mad at the entire French monarchy, as they knew this group tried everything to not listen to their plight.
Very few knows how it all started. One source would say in archive letters it was a baker who could not pay for flour to make bread and started to throw stones at a passing carriage in anger, while another archive would indicated it was a couple of older veterans of Louis XIV campaigns in the Netherlands who started a fight in a Parisian cafe and it spilled out on to the streets. What ever the trigger it caught everyone who was not in your traditional off - guard, but who was looking for any reason to start a fight-which in this instance began a revolution.
" Le quatorze juillet." and the storming of the Bastille was commited on the 14 of July 1789.
Today in these more sober years France would carefully inspect the Champs - Elysses avenue, and then later a Fete de la Federation rememberance as cadets from the Ecole Polytechniques, Saint-Cyr, Ecole Navale would initiate and lead the parade, and then passing in review of the French Predident of the Republic. This is all very symbolic, as it denotes the creation and further power of the French Republic.
Then everyone initiates their own forms of celebrations which eventually leads to the best fireworks displays in Europe in the evening hours; this has cause American fireworks experts to come and check their stuff to discover the latest tricks.
A real treat for everyone to see and to travel to see. Make sure you book a hotel at least two years in advance.

Orleans Major Festival.


There are numerous types of festivals in the world. Though many have religious origins, others involve seasonal change or have some cultural significance. Also certain institutions celebrate their own festival (often called "fests") to mark some significant occasions in their history. These occasions could be the day these institutions were founded or any other event which they decide to comemorate periodically, usually annually.

Seasonal festivals:  Seasonal festivals are determined by the solar and the luna  calendars and by the cycle of the seasons. The changing of the season was celebrated because of its effect on food supply. Ancient Egyptians would celebrate the seasonal inundation caused by the Nile River, a form of irrigation, which provided fertile land for crops. In the Alps, in autumn the return of the cattle from the mountain pastures to the stables in the valley is celebrated as Almabtrieb. A recognized winter festival, the Chinese New Year, is set by the lunar calendar, and celebrated from the day of the second new moon after the winter solstice.
