04/21/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Easter Monday

“Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings
and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing
the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition,
both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!”

- Elaine Sherman, Book of Divine Indulgences, 1984

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Today is officially Easter Monday - and right there in your homework it says to observe it as a day of rest - so I did!

   Passover is about to wind down as well.


HOMEWORK:

From http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/common/easter-monday:

Easter Monday is observed as a public holiday in many countries and is part of the Easter period. It is a Christian observance and is the day after Easter Sunday.

What do people do?

Many Christians around the world celebrate Easter Monday as a day of rest, particularly in countries where the day is a public holiday. It is a day for many to enjoy the time outdoors in countries such as Australia and Canada.  Easter parades occur in some parts of the world on Easter Monday. It is known as Dyngus, or Splash Monday, among many Polish communities where children often play water games.

The United States has its own tradition, known as the Egg Roll, which occurs at the White House. This tradition can be traced as far back as 1878, although it was not always held at the White House grounds in the earlier years. It receives media attention each year. Easter egg races are held in other parts of the world, including Germany.

Many government offices, businesses and educational institutions are closed on Easter Monday in countries where it is a public holiday. Those wishing to travel via public transport may wish to check with the relevant public transit authorities on schedules and timetables.

Background

Easter Monday was formerly regarded as unlucky and was therefore known as Black Monday (White Monday in Greece). Many sources attribute this expression to great losses of life during military expeditions but Monday itself was generally considered unlucky. It meant returning to school after the Easter break for many school children and was also known as Bloody Monday.

In medieval England women were allowed to haul out of bed any man they found there. Even Kings Edward I and Edward II went through this tradition. It was traditional for men to lift women three times by the arms and legs in northern England, where women would return the act on the following day. Easter Monday was known as the Day of the Easter Egg Bundle or the Day of Feasts in Ireland.

Symbols

For people with strong Christian beliefs, the cross that Jesus was crucified on and his resurrection are important symbols of the period around Easter. Other symbols of Easter include real eggs or eggs manufactured from a range of materials, nests, lambs and rabbits or hares. Sometimes these symbols are combined, for example, in candy models of rabbits with nests full of eggs. Eggs, rabbits, hares and young animals are thought to represent the re-birth and return to fertility of nature in the spring.

From Sandy Pannone Cerel of RI - 04/20/14 - "A Class of 1967 alumnus":

Hi Carol,

I am writing to you from the Providence, RI area.  I have been trying to locate my high school pen pal, Ronald Taylor, from your class of 1967.  I believe that he is now living in the Raleigh area, but there seem to be many men named Ronald Taylor who live there.  I wondered whether you might have contact information for him.  I could not find it on your web site, but the pages of contact information on the site seem not to have been updated recently.

I just want to mention that your web site is extremely impressive!  I wish that we had one for the high school that I attended.

Please let me know either way whether you have an address, email address, or phone number for Ronald.

Thanks so much,
Sandy Cerel

   Thank you so much, Sandy! I remember Ronald well, but I have no real information for you.

   I just forwarded your request to   Marty Whitmore McCoy of the Class of '67. If anyone knows, she does! We'll see what we can learn for you.


  From Marty Whitmore McCoy ('67) of VA - 04/21/14, 8:57 AM and 11:14 AM - "Ronald Taylor":

I don't have any information on Ronald Taylor but will ask around and see if anyone does. I will let you know if I find out anything &and if you find out anything, please let me know so we can update our information.

Thanks :-) Marty

P.S. I think I found him on Face Book - seems he is part of the NNHS alumni page so I will send him a message and tell him who is looking for him  or give him the email Sandy is sending from and maybe he will contact her.

   Thanks so much, Marty! You're the best!


   From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/28/14 - "Who Knew? (#19 in a series of 25)":

  YOWZERS! Thanks, Billy!
 
 


    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 04/10/14 - "Pictures for the Day (#6 in a series of 19)":

 
When the power of love overcomes the love
of power, the world will know peace.

   AWW - SO CUTE! Thanks, Jimmy!

 
 


BONUS CROCHET EASTER EGGS PATTERN:

Crochet Easter Eggs - "...I set out to crochet some Easter eggs and developed this Crocheted Easter Egg pattern (after many futile attempts!) that makes eggs that are darn near the same size as a large egg and so fun to make!  I think making this with bold and bright colors would be just beautiful too! These Crocheted Easter Eggs are a great way to use up leftover yarn.  I used some from baby blankets that I have made.  You will also need some sort of filling – I used Poly-Fil..."


BONUS EASTER MONDAY RECIPES:

From www.bestrecipes.com - "Let's face it: few of us want to spend too much time in the kitchen on Easter Monday. Not only is this the last day of the holiday, it's the day after the big Easter meals. If you've got plenty of leftovers, adding a simple salad and some wedges can easily turn them into a meal. And keep food light and easy, choosing quiches, frittatas, salads and tarts over more fiddly options. If a mountain of Easter chocolate hasn't killed off your sweet tooth, try putting together a simple Autumn-flavoured cake or pineapple mousse to enjoy at the end of the meal."

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 04/20/14:

A man was just waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife was sitting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and he said, “You are beautiful.”

Then he fell asleep again. His wife had never heard him say that, so she stayed by his side.

A few minutes later, his eyes fluttered open and he said, “You are cute!”

The wife was disappointed because instead of “beautiful,” it was now “cute.” She said, “What happened to ‘beautiful’?”

Her husband replied, “The drugs are wearing off!”

Ten Little Easter Eggs

Sung to the Tune of Ten little Indians

One little, two little, three little Easter eggs,
Four little, five little, six little Easter eggs,
Seven little, eight little, nine little Easter eggs,
Ten little eggs in my basket.
