Celebrate American holidays while studying abroad

Holidays in America can be an exciting experience, especially American specific holiday’s such as 4th of July and Thanksgiving. International students should experience these holidays while they are studying abroad in American universities. However, religious holidays are a bit different depending on your religious beliefs. Christmas is a big holiday in America and you should not have a problem finding a church near you. As for other religions you will be free to observe your holidays or prayer requirements. As long as you give your professors notice and communicate with them you may get exemptions for your religious practices. Admissions, registration, class attendance, exams and assignments may be pushed back, but remember to communicate this with your professors. You will not be penalized for missed classes though you most likely will have to make up the work.


General holidays in America
Some holidays are more popular than others in the US. The 4th of July is widely celebrated with beer, barbecues and fireworks along with many events to attend that are 4th of July themed such as concerts, firework displays and sporting events. In addition to the 4th of July there is also Thanksgiving and New Year's which both feature famous parades and, for Thanksgiving, there are always football games to watch. That is if you watch American football. It is kind of a tradition in many households to watch football on Thanksgiving and there could possibly be some sort of gathering on campus somewhere to celebrate thanksgiving and watch football during your studies abroad. It is also important to mention Halloween, though it is not a holiday per se, it is an American tradition. Halloween is mostly advertised toward children and parents, however college students celebrate it as well. As an international student you should experience halloween by making or buying a costume and going to have fun in a Halloween party or parade. Other holidays such as Martin Luther King day and Columbus Day are recognized, but are not really celebrated.


Below is the list of the Federal holidays
On these days, you most likely will not have classes, and most people in America do not work on these days. Government offices will also be closed on these days:


January 1st: New years eve
January 15–21 (Floating Monday): Birthday of Martin Luther King
February 15–21 (Floating Monday): Washington’s birthday
May 25–31 (Floating Monday): Memorial Day
July 4 (Fixed): Independance Day
September 1–7 (Floating Monday): Labor Day
October 8–14 (Floating Monday): Columbus Day
November 11 (Fixed): Veterans Day
November 22–28 (Floating Thursday): Thanksgiving Day
December 25 (Fixed): Christmas Day


Religious Holidays
Depending on your religion or culture you can probably find somewhere on or off campus to celebrate it. For example most Universities have prayer facilities for all major religions, as well as religious student organizations. For example, many universities have a Hillel, which is a Jewish student center, for celebrating Jewish holidays and organizing events. If you ask around campus or look on your University’s website you will probably find a group event. Additionally, you will definitely find an event off campus and friends who observe the same religion will probably be open to inviting you to celebrate with them and/or their family.


Holidays are always an exciting time, whether they are new to you or not, especially when you have never experienced them before. Remember to find an event to go to or a group to stick with during a holiday. You will not regret it. It is also important to know that any holidays you personally celebrate, religious or not, there will be an event for you or a group of people who also celebrate the same holiday. No matter what you do, have fun and make the most of your time abroad.

Het worden dan ook wel verhaaltjessommen genoemd. Waar deze verhaaltjes eerst nog vrij eenvoudig en kort zijn, worden de redactiesommen in groep 8 steeds ingewikkelder.

  19. Als je een partytent huurt is het belangrijk om ook aan de aankleding en inrichting te denken. Het is wel zo praktisch om dat ook bij Colors Events te regelen. Wij kunnen behalve jouw partytent ook zorgen voor meubilair zoals statafels, al dan niet voorzien van rokken, stoelen of gewone tafels. Ook feestverlichting mag niet ontbreken als je een feest in de avonduren organiseert

  23. Zonder al te veel poespas gewoon een nieuwe, strakke en frisse wandafwerking? Dan is het spuiten van latex muurverf een goede uitkomst. En ook dan moet je bij Latex Spuiten XXL zijn. Het hanteren van de speciale spuiten voor latexverf hebben wij ons in de loop der jaren eigen gemaakt. Door de spuittechniek ontstaat er een egale structuur, die een stuk strakker is dan bij het sauswerk met een traditionele verfroller. Bovendien is de klus een stuk sneller geklaard – ondanks dat we de werkzaamheden minstens zo gepassioneerd als traditioneel binnenschilderwerk uitvoeren. Latex spuiten is daarom doorgaans voordeliger dan latexen met de verfroller. Disclaimer: dit is afhankelijk per situatie en oppervlakte.

    Ants leave a scented trail that other ants follow. Sweeping or mopping isn’t enough to eliminate the scent.Killing the ants passing by will not eliminate the problem from its roots. The main source of the colonies is the queen. In order to find the nest and the queen a trail of ants must be followed. It is important to identify the ants taking food crumbs and following them to find the nest. Once the nest has been found, be careful not to disturb the worker ants taking the food to the nest.
    Sugar ants love a dirty sink and the water you leave them to help wash down the leftovers. Make sure to rinse out any dishes you're going to leave in the sink over night. And when you do clean the dishes, make sure you rinse and wipe down the entire sink to make certain you haven't left residual sweets, food, or moisture behind. If you're really picky about cleaning, you might even want to try pouring a little bleach down the drain to make sure the smell of rotting food doesn't attract more ants to your kitchen. Dish drains should also be emptied and wiped down before the end of the day.
    Little black ants have also garnered the name sugar ant, though their real name is, well, Little Black Ants. Not a lot is known about Little Black Ants, except that they eat just about anything (including other insects) and they really like rotting wood and dark spaces. Getting rid of little black ants, however, despite how little is known about them from a biological perspective, is as easy as getting rid of sugar ants. Sweet baits can be used to control little black ants indoors, and protein baits can be used to control little black ants outdoors.
    Look in attics, bathrooms, and exterior walls. When you find the nest, spray it with an insecticide labeled for indoor use.Trim back bushes, shrubs, and trees that brush against your siding or roof. These provide a bridge for ants to reach your home. Avoid stacking firewood next to the house.

  25. What is the Virus Outbreak Data Network (VODAN)? VODAN is a GO FAIR Implementation Network set up to help fight the COVID-19 Corona virus, that is causing a worldwide epidemic. The Implementation Network VODAN is a step to establish the Internet of FAIR Data and Services. FAIR stands for human and machine-readable digital data objects that are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Accessibility is fully compliant with regulatory and governance frameworks, including personal data protection and ethical considerations based on the principle to Do no Harm.
    Making data and metadata FAIR ensures that these data are discoverable on the Internet of FAIR Data and Services. Central tot his approach is the establishment of FAIR Data Points (FDPs), for COVID-19 relevant digital data objects. Opening up FAIR (meta)data by publishing them on a FDP allows algorithms to search these (meta)data, looking for patterns. The Internet of FAIR Data and Services is a distributed data discovery network; data are NOT moved, but algorithms going over the internet can find the data.
