Holidays in MultiCultural Homes

International holiday celebrating 

The Mid-Autumn Festival is also called the Moon Festival or the Mooncake Festival. It traditionally falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese lunar calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar.

Mooncake

Diwali

Diwali is India's biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.

From the Festival of Lights in India to Mid Autumn Festival in China

Biscotti

Me, Annette 

Biscotti di Prato is from Prato in Tuscany. The cookies are baked twice to give them their signature crunch and extend their shelf life. When stored in an airtight jar or box, biscotti will keep for several weeks.  

Eucalyptus leaves have many impressive benefits. They may help decrease pain, promote relaxation, and relieve cold symptoms. Many over-the-counter products also use eucalyptus extract to freshen your breath, soothe irritated skin, and repel insects.
