Here at Kneads Must, we hope that everyone always has a happy and healthy holiday season and that you’re now enjoying massaging with your new Kneader massage tool (the gift that keeps on giving)!
However great Kneader massage is, many of us can and do experience varying levels of exhaustion from the excesses (and let’s face it – stress) of all the holiday celebrations. By the time New Year’s eve rounds the corner, we seriously need a boost. This is a great little article from BBC radio about all the different traditions around the world used in getting you in the right mind for the New Year. You don’t have to travel to all these places, but you can embrace some of the activities or mindset to help you ring in a New Year full of positivity. Peaceful traditions that will set you up for a great New Year
As I’m Irish, I thought I might share a long-held tradition called ‘Nollaig na mBan’ (also known as Women’s Christmas, Little Christmas and the Feast of the Epiphany) that affords a well-earned break to all those hard-working Irish women who served up yet another Christmas to their families. As you can read from this very comprehensive Wikipedia article, there are plenty of countries that do something similar – why can’t there be more of these days, please?
