Stick walkers

Follow me facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutube

So, I been living in Florida for 1 year now.  I must say, I do enjoy the view and the nice weather during my walks with Wes to his school.  I also met a lot of nice stick walkers (people that carries a stick while walking).  I always wondered, why are all these people carrying a stick? So, I did some digging into this stick. What came undug, was even though walking with a stick has a lot of benefits (see list of benefits below)

List of  benefits from walking with a stick.

 

  • Help Reduce Pressure on aching joints,ankles,feet, knees and hips.
  • Balance and stability on uneven trails.
  • Boost and power while going up a steep inclines.
  •  Protection.

Protection was the main reason why most stick walkers in my area carries a stick.  It can be used to fend off  unwanted pets, intruders or wild animals.

I thought this was a need to know info  since there are lots of pets and wild animals here.  I still can never remember to carry a stick.

Are you a stick walker? Why do you walk with a stick? Would love to hear from you.

Easter season is finally upon us. While Most of my American friends or those who take part in the American culture, the Easter Bunny, painting Easter eggs and going on scavenger hunts with the little ones.  This Jamaican gal culture includes mouth watering, flavorful Spiced Bun and cheese.

The true reason for this religious Holiday is about Jesus dying love for us. He was crucified so that we may live our life to the fullest.

I remember growing up in Jamaica, Good Friday means going to church, no cooking on Good Friday.  We had to cook the night before and it would be fried fish.
Lots of Bun and cheese eating would take place. We also have our traditions and believes, like if we had to use the stove, wait until afternoon, since it is belief that using of fire add to the heat that Jesus felt on the cross.  Stores did not open until afternoon or not at all.  Fish fry on Thursday, Holy Thursday, no cooking on Friday.

Oh yes! We do have something with egg, superstition believes. Putting egg white in a glass of water use sticks to mark x over it and left out, this is usually done over night. Then when the sun rose on Good Friday, it was checked to see the shape of the egg to predict the future.  If it shape like a plane or a ship would mean future travel. Shape like a dress would mean future wedding is near. Coffin shape would mean death is coming.

Well time changed most of those traditions and believes are no longer in practice. The few that remains like going to Church, remembering the love that Jesus have for us, the eating of Easter Bun and Cheese and fried fish.  I can say this Jamaican Gal is happy and loving the Easter season.

What are some of your Easter tradition or culture? Would love to hear from you. Please comment, like and share.

Happy Good Friday!
