Today in Party history

APRIL 12th

The Cerealia, an annual festival of the Goddess Ceres, was celebrated by the ancient Romans in order to secure the fertility of the crops. The sacred rites of Ceres began on this date and were observed for eight consecutive days.

In Taiwan, the Goddess who presides over birth (Chu-Si-Niu) is honored annually on this day with a religious festival. Pregnant women go to temples dedicated to Her in order to receive blessings for their unborn children.
