Happy Year of the Rabbit!

Although I wasn’t born in a Rabbit year, I’ve always felt a connection to rabbits. Besides being adorable (and having vicious bites, which I learned the hard way!), rabbits symbolize intellect and cautiousness. The Year of the Rabbit is supposed to be one of peace and prosperity– something I think we all need.

Chinese New Year also takes place during the new moon, which is a time of change and fresh starts. I’m fully embracing this aspect, as I’m in the midst of moving (finally!) My posts (and comments) might be on the light side for the next while (I’m also still working on the new book), but I will be around. In the meantime, I wish everyone all the best for the lunar new year!

Happy Hallowe’en/Samhain

Happy Hallowe'en/Samhain, blog post by Aspasia S. Bissas, aspasiasbissas.com. Halloween, Samhain, thinning veil, spooky season, jack o lantern, day of the dead, nightmare before christmas, honouring the dead, honouring ancestors

Wishing you all a happy (and creepy!) Hallowe’en/Samhain! Are you doing anything special to celebrate? Share in the comments….

For me, this year feels sombre. My lost loved ones are on my mind, so I’ll be honouring them today. I’ll probably also indulge in some movies: Nightmare Before Christmas for sure, and possibly something else, as well. Any suggestions for a film on the lighter side of the horror spectrum?

If I have time, I’d also like to make Pan de Muertos, AKA Bread of the Dead. If you haven’t tried it, Pan de Muertos, a lightly sweet bread, is traditional during Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). It’s usually shaped into skulls and bones, but you can make it in any shape that suits you. This recipe is very close to the one I use: Pan de Muertos.
