With 4th of July in full swing, the US is celebrating Independence Day. Since the the only American I know of in my family was my great-great-great-grandfather (so I’m only 1/32 of American descent), this day has never been of much significance to me. What I do relate to are celebrations — Christmas, birthdays, New Year’s Eve, when I was younger St. Martin’s Day and Fastnacht (German for Carnival; equivalent to Mardi Gras) and now Lunar New Year and Eid al-Fitr, even if my family didn’t adopt these customs.
When it comes to celebrations, my favourite part is always the food; specifically desserts. I love to bake and make desserts and celebrations are always the perfect occasions for these. That’s why recipe and food science books belong to my absolute favourite types of non-fiction books.
What do you like best about celebrations?
Do look out for Georgie’s post where she chose to honour Independence Day. Also, if you’re participating in Mise-en-scène, remember to leave your link to your photo in the linky widget down below!
