A New Season


After a long sabbatical, I plan to post new snippets with some holiday recipes from around the world. May your upcoming holiday preparations be interesting and fun. Stay happy and healthy until I write again.

A New Direction


Previously, this blog was published as ‘The Diabetic World Reader’. I realized that I must obtain advanced knowledge of my subject to make it viable and more useful to my readers. After some thought, I have decided to change the subject matter to world holidays and traditions of which is a subject of interest to many persons worldwide.

As with most people in the United States, we have contact daily with people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and religions who celebrate the holidays and traditions that take place throughout not only the Americas, but throughout the entire world.

These pages will bring you a variety of stories, recipes, menus, crafts, book reviews, party plans and insight into various holidays and celebrations. I hope to make your holiday plans happier and less stressful, while showing you the rich diversity that exists in America and all other places on our planet earth.
