INTERNeX Canada: International Vancouver- Diwali time!

Vancouver is really international as you all know, and there is a big Indian Community living here. These days are special for all of them. Do you know why?

After the monsoon season in India, which is around October or November Indian people celebrated “Diwali” a special festivity that can be translated to “Row of Lights“. This date also marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year, and many businesses in India starting a new accounting year on the Diwali holiday.

Ok, right and what’s Diwali about?

It’s a celebration to victory of the Good over the Evil and Light over Darkness, which last 5 days. It has a major religious significance not only in India, but also for Indians living abroad. The actual day of Diwali happens during the third day when it’s really common to see lights around the houses and fireworks.

The rest of the days there are different celebrations, for example the first day the people pray for prosperity and wealth and the last day, the fifth one, is the day for brothers and sisters to strengthen their relationships. In this day sisters pray for their brother’s and they give little gifts to their sisters in return.

Interesting, isn’t it?

And the best of all and this is something general everywhere, is during the celebration time the families are together eating tons of food and sweets! Yummy!

It is also common to send Diwali greeting cards to family members, relatives and friends, but nowadays send e- mails and Facebook are good options as well!

Barbara, our Placement Manager and Neil her boyfriend enjoyed yesterday celebrating Diwali together!

It’s great that a Spanish girl is writing about an Indian festivity that a Canadian coworker celebrated yesterday with her boyfriend’s family. It’s the kind of magical things that just happen in this crazy and awesome city!

Cheers,

Irene

Vancouver Chinatown Spring Festival Celebration

2011 – The year of the rabbit

The Chinese New Year Parade, Vancouver Chinatown’s signature event will this year take place on the 6th of February. With cultural dance troupes, marching bands, lion dances and much more, the New Year’s Parade is a cultural spectacle that should not be missed!

The parade, one of the three largest non-commercial annual parades of Vancouver, is a fun-filled event for everyone to enjoy. It presents the largest assembly of traditional lion dance teams in Canada with dozens of colourful and energetic lions from the various local fraternal and martial arts organizations. Other highlights include multicultural dance troupes representing the diverse segments of Canadian cultural heritage, marching bands, the Police Department Motorcycle Drill Team and several other community groups. The parade attracts 50,000 spectators along the route each year… That sounds awesome!

The route of the parade is 1,2km long and starts at the Millennium Gate on Pender Street (between Shanghai Alley and Taylor Street), proceeding east along Pender Street, turning south onto Gore Street, turning west onto Keefer Street and then dispersing at Keefer and Columbia.

The 2011 parade will start at 12:00 noon sharp on Sunday, February 6th, 2011, and will take two hours to complete.

If you are in Vancouver I definitely recommend to go there!

Cheers,

Ziska

Norqauy Mountain!

If you are an INTERNeX Candidate at Banff, you don’t want to miss this! Norquay Mountain helps Banff visitors celebrating the coming New Year with a torchlight parade down the ski mountain at New Years Eve. The parade takes place at 8 p.m. off the North American Chair and can be seen from town.

And another great thing! This Season the Norquay Mountain will celebrate their 85th anniversary. This means it is the oldest resort in North America. The first Thursday of every month in January, February and March they will be selling adult day passes for only .85 cents in celebration of their anniversary.

Have fun!
