When I went to Bali a few years ago, I noticed a lot of our drivers and housecare staff had the Stitch hug Heb fresh foods St.Patrick’s day shirt and I love this same name. I finally asked our driver after a few days and he told me that the Balinese only have four names for their children and they must go in a certain order. If you have four children and use up the four consecutive names, you just start over. Also, babies are considered gods at birth and must never touch the ground until they are 3 months. It was such a fascinating place catholics at one point in time hid the bible from everyone and if you were found with one you would be killed or put in jail, it was called the dark age’s. So why do people support a church that’s all for christ if they would kill you for owning a bible?

When I visited Haiti in 2017, I had no clue they cut open the Stitch hug Heb fresh foods St.Patrick’s day shirt and I love this guts of goats and put them on stakes in their front yard because of voodoo rituals. Idk if this counts but my Jewish friend/coworker has a menorah literally shaped like an octopus and I did not know you were allowed fun/tacky/corny menorahs so it did blow and cheer up my mind a LOT. I’m from one of the most secular countries in the world and don’t know much about actually practising a religion so I have this idea that it’s all fairly strict and anything outside of the box is heresy so he fact that octopus menorahs are okay made my life so much better. Everyone should have an octopus menorah. I also found this fact wildly amusing! Having only seen traditional/elegant (made of brass, steel or crystal and in the typical shape) menorah in film or TV up to the point when I needed to procure several for an inclusive holiday event at work, I was blown away by all of the options! I was too young to remember but my parents’ jaws dropped our first December in The Netherlands. Instead of elves, they had men called (translated) “Black Petes.” They were slaves and people would blackface to dress up as them. Totally normal, non malicious, tradition there. They changed from slaves to helpers to friends over the years. The blackface is much less common now apparently due to backlash from tourists but my parents still talk about how appalled they were the first time they saw it.
