Well, in America, the day after Thanksgiving holiday marks the official beginning of the Christmas shopping season. As a result, over the years, this Friday has come to be known as “Black Friday.” Consumerism and Materialism at its worst. This year some folks have initiated “Buy Nothing Day.” There’s even a Hungarian translation of the website! http://www.nevasaroljsemmitnap.hu/
Happy Thanksgiving! Our friend Arden was in the Szeged newspaper today! Check it out.
Wow. We will be flying to America on December 5th…less than two weeks away. We are so excited to visit family and friends, to see Virginia Tech, to go to Walmart, to see the Appalachian mountains. But, as the trip approaches, we have been surprised to feel a little sad about missing Christmas in Hungary with our Hungarian friends. Why can’t we be in two places at the same time?
Meaning. Finding meaning helps us to act. It makes us learn. Meaning is the sense to see connections, as well as our place and significance within the course of life’s events. We need others to shape meaning.
E kettő kell nekem
-Petőfi Sandor, 1847
These two I need
For my love I sacrifice life
For freedom I sacrifice my love.
