Hermit Crabs

Can you carry your house on your back? Of course not! But a hermit crab can.

A hermit crab lives in an old shell. It carries the shell on its back. Why? Because the abdomen of a hermit crab is very soft. Living in a hard shell can protect the tender part of its body.

First, a hermit crab looks for an empty shell that is just the right size. Then it moves in! When it outgrows its shell, what does it do? The same thing people do! It looks for a bigger new house and moves once again. Sometimes, some hermit crabs will even compete for shells that are already in use by another hermit crab!

The Yuanxiao Festival

The 15th day of the first lunar month is the Chinese Lantern Festival. It is called Yuanxiao, too, and it falls on February 14 this year.

There are many stories about the origin of Yuanxiao. One of them tells about a young woman who lives in the emperors palace. The young woman wanted to see her family during the

New Year celebrations, but that was

not allowed. So she came up with

a clever plan.

She told the emperor that the God of Fire wanted to burn down the city. Make the city look like it is already on fire, then the God of Fire will go away, she said.

Hearing that, the emperor asked people to light lanterns and set off firecrackers in the city. And the young woman got away to have

a happy reunion with her family!

More about Yuanxiao

In Chinese, Yuan means first, while Xiao refers to night. Yuanxiao is the first time we see the full moon after New Years Day.

New Years Day is the end of winter and the beginning of spring, while Yuanxiao marks the return of the light and warmth of the sun.

People make lanterns and hang them outside their house to keep off evil spirits.

Ancient Chinese women went across bridges at Yuanxiao. They believed this would help them stay healthy in the next year.

Strega Nona (I)

A long time ago, in a town in Calabria, there lived an old lady. People called her Strega Nonait meant Grandma Witch.

When people had troubles, they all went to see Strega Nona, because she really had magic. But Strega Nona was getting old, and she needed someone to keep her little house and garden. So she put up a sign in the town square. And Big Anthony went to see her.

Anthony, said Strega Nona. You must sweep the house and pick the vegetables in the garden. But you must never touch my pasta pot. It is very valuable and I dont let anyone touch it!

Oh, yes, said Big Anthony.
