Today marks the first of april, and this year the first seems to be the most interesting of the month. Today is of course Easter Sunday, the day that, according to some book that Jesus came back to live, having been killed on the previous Friday. Now my dad is born on April first, and I don’t think he is too glad about sharing his birthday with Easter this year, my parents and brother are not really in to religion, i follow these sorts of holidays from a pagan point of view rather than from a protestant point of view, because by being pagan I can still be apart of the christian faith, (Though I never say I’m christian as I believe the mainstream version is corrupted) but at the same time not believe in god, because I follow the spiritual aspects of the religion. I follow the pagan religion because it means i can celebrate all theses holidays without being a hypocrite, no matter what people say Christmas is a christian holiday, easter is a christian holiday, other people who follow other religions can celebrate if they like, but they should not try and change such things, because they makes them god awful people, in my opinion, we don’t try and take your holidays don’t take ours.
Moving on, today also happens to be April Fools days, and I wrote this before any tricks had happened, last couple of years I have been a little disappointed on the tricks the internet have tried to pull, but let’s see how today goes, with easter also insight.
So other things that are to happen in this month, due to being in the UK I am just going to talk about the dates which happen in this country, I might mention a couple from other countries, probably as I may have celebrated them at some point in time.
To start with we have National Beer day on April, 6, now because this falls on a friday and I have work the next day I probably won’t be celebrating this, but frankly it is a great day to have, so as long as you are of legal age and not an alcoholic have fun drinking.
On a slightly different note, this month also has the Hillsborough Disaster Memorial Day, which is mainly happens in Liverpool, but with the victims of the families finally getting justice, I feel like the whole of the United Kingdom, will remember those who were lost in a tragic accident, which could have been easily prevented.
Moving on in this month England also celebrates St George, which also shares the date of Shakespeare’s birth and death day, who too many is one of the best writers to ever have lived. I can’t say I have ever really celebrated either day but I do take a moment to at least acknowledge such people, even if the former has a slightly fictional story.
As well as everything I have mentioned it also happens to be
- International Guitar Month
- Stress Awareness Month
- Sexual Assault Awareness Month
and throughout the month there are so so days to celebrate the following
- International Moment of Laughter
- Safety and Health at Work Day
- World Penguin
- Haiku Poetry
- Malaria Awareness Day
and many others, so have a good month and I hope the April showers are not too bad this year.
