Yep, it’s already that time again — find 10 minutes to chant or pray or meditate for peace.

Also want to give a heads up:  Linda over at litebeing.com has asked fellow bloggers to participate with her in writing posts on “What were the gifts of 2014?”  There are lots of dates still open, just let her know what day — the list of dates taken and open is on this post and if you scroll down, the guidelines for this challenge are all there.

Collective Prayer Sundays:  In case you’re new, we’re finding 10 minutes at a minimum to pray or chant or meditate (or???) for peace every Sunday.  Details are on the CPS page.  For comments:  you can comment here or on that page or you can go to the Facebook page.

Some estimates state that as many as 20% of returning military veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

World Letter Writing Day
December 7, 2014 in the World
World Letter Writing Day is a day that people from all around the world will pick up a pen or pencil & write a letter…it’s that simple!
When was the last time you put pen to paper to get in touch with someone? Email, text messaging and instant communication are incredible tools, but lack the personal touch of a handwritten letter. Dust off your writing paper, pens and envelopes and try writing a letter in place of emailing or phoning on Letter Writing Day.

National Cotton Candy Day
December 7, 2014 in the USA
National Cotton Candy Day is celebrated on December 07, 2014. Cotton candy , candy floss, or candyfloss, or fairy floss is a form of spun sugar. Since it comprises mostly air, a small initial quantity of sugar generates a tremendously greater final volume, causing servings to be physically large and voluminous. A typical serving on a stick is approximately 1 ounce/30 grams.
Cotton Candy is sometimes sold in bags containing several servings. Cotton candy is often served at carnivals or circuses. Food coloring can be used to change the natural white color. There are many flavors although flossine is one of the most common. A similar confectionery is the Persian Pashmak, and the Turkish Pismaniye, although the latter is made with flour and water in addition to sugar. Ngathrek Golop Lhakpa is also a Bhutanese variant, but with added Butter tea and chilli peppers.
