Holiday Post #8: New Years Superstitions

Hi Blogger or Visitor,

As we all know, New Years 2014 is just around the corner. There’s many things you can do to celebrate, like see the fireworks display in Auckland City, and if you’re in New York, you could welcome the New Year in Times Square. There are also some things people do, and they are called “superstitions”. Here some of them:

  • Crying:
According to superstition, it says that you shouldn’t cry on New Years Day. Why?
It is because if you do, you could bring unhappiness throughout the new year.

  • Laundry:
Don’t try to do your laundry on the New Year. It is told that if you do, it “washes away” an important relative in the family, that means, someone important will pass away. I learnt that the hard way. This one time, in January 1st this year, we did the laundry, then later on in the year, some of the most important family relatives passed away. Strangest thing though, not many people know how this superstition came.

  • New Clothing:
People believe that if you wear different/new clothing, you could be getting more new clothing during the year. It could get more better if you wore red clothing, as it is considered as a happy colour, and, it could attract you a brighter future.

  • Noise:
It is said the evil spirits hate loud noise, so try to bring in the New Year by making some noise, not only for celebrating, but also scaring away the evil spirits. Church bells ring at weddings for the same reason.



Happy New Years to all!

Holiday Post #5: Addition Christmas Tree


Here is my Christmas version of the "Addition Triangle".

Holiday Post #4: Santa Tracker

Hi there people,

It's Christmas! For me, that means going to the site, Google Santa Tracker! You get to play games, and there's one addictive game, ooh, and, you get to track Santa, too. A lot of people like this for lots of reasons, like, it is good for the child, because some kids do love Ol' Saint Nick, so, why not use the Santa Tracker! It's already reached 5 billion and going.

I also had a funny joke while it was on,
it went like this...

"Yay! Twenty-two million, eight hundred....Oh, too late....".

Basketball



Today I played a bit of Sumdog, and this time, I played another different game. It was called "Basketball". I played it against another person from the world. The other player didn't do anything, but, I did win at the end, winning with 14 points.

Jet Ski Rescue

Today I played another game on Sumdog. The maths game was "Jet Ski Rescue". I had to answer maths equations to get boats from the sinking boat. I won in the end. This maths game was teaching me some of my basic facts, and some hard fractions, like in the picture above.

Hungry Synonym


Here is my brainstorm of the synonyms of "Hungry".

This was the first time I wrote something like this




How I Quit Sucking My Thumb!


By Bruce Lansky


My mother says it’s childish and
my father says it’s dumb—
whenever they discover that
I’m sucking on my thumb.
It’s such a silly thing to do,
as everybody knows.
So now instead of sucking it
I stick it in my nose.

My Normal Family

By Kathy Kenny-Marshall

My daddy snores and sucks his toes.
My brother likes to lick his nose.
My doggy meows, my kitten barks.
My goldfish chases sticks in parks.
My sister walks while upside down.
My mother hops all over town.
Her skin is purple, don’t you know.
And I am green from head to toe.
My dad is red, my sister’s blue.
My brother’s yellow; yes, it’s true.
We all wear raincoats in the sun
And gobble lima beans for fun.
We’re very special, can’t you see?
We’re just a normal family!
