Somewhere in the world today people are celebrating something with fabulous fiestas and festivals, or in truly mad and amazing ways.
Somewhere in the world today is the inspiration of Christine Osborne when she was taking a two month sabbatical from her busy job in Digital Marketing to slide down the slopes of Borovets, Bulgaria. Having broken a rib, further snowboarding was out, so she turned to filling her time learning more about the Bulgarian culture and attempting (somewhat unsuccessfully!) to learn the language.
On March 1st (while Christine was there) the Bulgarians have a lovely spring time tradition. The day is called Baba Marta (meaning Grandma March) and people give eachother red and white woollen dolls or bracelets called martenitsa. Recipients must wear the martenitsa until they see the first sign of spring (a stork or the first buds), when they must hang their martenitsa on a tree for good luck, health and prosperity in the coming year.
Finding such a charming tradition, Christine started to think about what other traditions there might be elsewhere in the world, and set herself the challenge to find a festival, holiday or celebration for each and every day of the year somewhere in the world.
The blog, facebook and twitter pages soon became a way to give people an excuse to celebrate every day! With the addition of travel information and traditional recipes and crafts from the different festivals, somewhereintheworldtday.com is a place to come to for inspiration for holiday destinations and gift ideas, as well as ways to join in the celebrations at home.
