I have never eaten “Ceviche’’ before, and could never understand why everyone liked and said wonderful things about this special dish. “There is the Peruvian restaurant I told you about’’ my sister said. I saw the restaurant from the outside but it did not grab my attention at first; very bland with dark color walls. After I parked the car, my sister and I walked across the street to see what all the commotion was about. As soon as we entered the place our mindsets changed, there were many Peruvian pictures and souvenirs, clothes of many colors hanging on the walls and the restaurant was very crowded with very few tables to spare.
Athletic contests such as Pyrrhic dancing, physical fitness, the torch relay race, and boat races were restricted to Athenian citizens; however, non-Athenians were allowed to take part in the track and field and equestrian events. Allowing all citizens to participate in this particular festival meant that the Panathenaea became extremely important to Athenian society as it was a time when all sectors of the community united together in honouring their patron goddess, Athena. Athena supposedly protected the city; therefore Athenians would have considered her birthday an important and appropriate time to honour her. Each year a new peplos* was sewn for the life-size statue of Athena Polias by young girls chosen from noble Athenian families. It was rare for women to play a prominent role in festivals, however in the Panathenaea the peplos and the women who made it formed part of the procession; these women were respected and considered important on this day.
Paige Threadgill September 28,2012 Autobiographical Incident Six Flags Magic Mountain When I first got into the yellow school bus, I was terrified. Why? It’s because I didn’t know if I should be scared or not. You see, I’ve never been on a roller coaster, well, only one time when I went to the fair in Paso Robles, but that didn’t count for me. When the bus moved, I was saying to my youth pastor that this was my first time going to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA!
Ritual Observation Assignment For my ritual observation assignment, I decided to write about the time I was able to witness a Jewish wedding. I was not a guest but I was still able to observe the wedding by working at this event for a kosher catering company. I was fortunate to have this opportunity through work, and talked to my supervisor to ensure that it would be okay that I was writing notes during my breaks. In a way, working the event gave me even more insight into the traditions and procedures of a Jewish wedding, because I was also able to observe the things that took place “behind the scenes”. It was a completely new experience for me, however, I tried to make sure that I was an objective observer, opening myself to learning about a religion that I was unfamiliar with.
My favorite characters were the dynamic duo, Cogsworth and Lumiere. Whenever either one of them or both of them waltzed onto the stage, I knew there would be laughter rippling through the audience. Another hilarious character was Lefou. The actor played a convincing role as Gaston’s henchman and doesn’t mind getting beat up a couple of times. The voices of the main characters, Belle and the Beast were amazing!

During my trip to Greece, I familiarized myself with the culture, history, and food so that I could navigate the country efficiently. As I packed for my trip to Greece last week, I realized that I knew nothing about these three key things. I did a little bit of research, but realized that I would not be able to truly understand until I experienced it. I assumed stereotypes for Greeks: they used to believe in mythological gods, they built great architectural wonders, and they loved varieties of food and drink. Walking into the country, I realized that I must throw aside those assumptions and get my hands dirty to find out the roots and truths of the country.
Most of the Geeks owe their names to a religious saint. A very important Greek tradition that takes place in the entire Greece is that everyone who has a name coming from a saint Greek Traditions and Superstitions 3 celebrated by the church celebrates his name on a given day of the year. On the “name day” of someone, his friends and family visit him without invitation and offer their wishes as well as small presents. In Greece, name days are more important than birthdays. Another tradition is the Engagement.
Also the use of music for all sorts of parties and religious events such as church or a celebration of some kind. The thing that almost all people do that the Greeks used to do is pray to their god or gods. All the Greeks did something that people today still do or use to help them with their problems, issues, or just to entertain themselves. Greeks used to have theaters for entertainment and to pay a tribute to the gods or goddess. We do have plays for the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth, and we have plays just for our entertainment suck as Romeo and Juliet.
Family members of the bikers were very proud of having partaken in this event. One spouse said, “I knew I would never be able to do the bike route, so when my husband decided he was going to do it, we were all extremely proud and supportive” The two days of biking went off without a hitch. The trip started with a smashing success at a breakfast in the park. There was an amazing spread for all the bikers and their families. The tables groaned under a full buffet of delectable pastries, bagels and an omelet bar letting off a tantalizing smell.
