White House Easter Egg Roll 2009

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on March 27, 2009

There is a nationwide tradition which has been called the White House Easter Egg Roll. It is held an annually as a family event to hunt for and race Easter Eggs on the White House Lawn while enjoying storytelling and a visit with the Easter Bunny.

The holiday tradition has a long history dating back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes officially opened the White House grounds to local children for egg rolling on Easter Monday. Successive Presidents have continued the tradition of inviting children to the White House Lawn for egg rolling and other activities and entertainment.

This year’s White House Easter Egg Roll theme, ‘Let’s go play’, encourages America’s youth to lead healthy and active lives. The White House will open the South Lawn to children age ten and under, along with their families, to enjoy sports, cooking classes, live musical performances, storytelling and the traditional Easter egg roll.

Valentine’s Day

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 13, 2009

100-9041Valentine’s Day is a popular festival held on February 14 by countless of lovers around the globe. The festival gives love-struck a special time to express heartfelt feelings for their beloved coupled with nice cards, fresh flowers or some gifts. While most people attach romantic meaning to the festival, Valentine’s Day is not only celebrated by lovers. Individuals greet Valentine’s Day to their mothers, teachers, friends, pets or anyone else close to their hearts.

As mentioned above, Valentine’s Day should not only be confined purposely for lovers alone, it should be some kind of a general issue where the sharing of pure love must be well-manifested.

I have known such a generous girlfriend in my life when one time while walking down the street we came across an old man begging for money for his meal. I am naturally not that thoughtful enough of their welfare because of the principle I believed that everybody has the capacity to survive by looking for a much better way to stay out of money. But when an old man asked for money, she unselfishly took her wallet, drew some coins and gave them to the old man.

It was indeed a different experience for me. It helped me realized that there are people around who are helpless that need some kind of attention to assist them for their survival. This kind of act is a great example of giving more value to the spirit of Valentine’s Day.
