What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

What is your favourite holiday tradition?

No matter which country you are from, you are sure to have your own traditions, but which is your favourite one?

For me, I enjoy singing carols around the Christmas tree with my family.

What about you? If you could pick one tradition from one holiday as your favourite, what would it be?

    In Nepal there is a very nice festival in the autumn called Tihar. This is when brothers and sisters honour eachother with gifts and tikka on the forehead as a mark of respect.

    That sounds lovely. I think the relationship between brothers and sisters is so important, and is rarely honoured in the UK!
