  2. Well Cicadas are highly respected in China and so there are tones of reasons for such thing. I think the most interesting thing is what these tiny insects may symbolize and so I decided to discover more about this phenomenon. While doing my research, I found this lovely thing! Since ancient times, the cicada has been seen as a symbol of resurrection, an association that owes to its fascinating life cycle. Newly hatched insects drop from branches to burrow into the ground, where they nourish themselves on tree roots for as long as seventeen years before emerging into the sunlight.

  4. I am a fan of how stupid animated movies, that technically do not make sense, show some interesting facts about the real world and importance of stuff, in this case bees. There was that weird movie about a bee that falls in love with a human and so the girl ditches her human boyfriend for the said bee. It was super cringy but they did show an important thing about bees and how they are committed to flowers and nature. How without them there would not be any flowers. Although, I am allergic to pollen so I would not mind but yeah, they are important!
  5. I am not from the United States of America, nor have I ever been there. I am going to give Hazz the ability to talk about the United Kingdom and so I am going to talk about my country of birth - Poland. Most are aware of how rich the Polish history is, with World War 1 and most importantly War World 2. However, it was not until the 1918 when Poland managed to take over the Russian military. It was one the nights of 6th and 7th November when the first Polish government was formed. Then on the 10th November, one of the greatest Marshal's in Polish history - Jozef Pilsudzki, arrived in Warsaw and then on the 11th became assumed authority forming a new centralized government and soon calling parliamentary elections. Therefore, the National Independence Day in Poland is celebrated on the 11th of November. It is, of course, a national bank holiday. In the capital, Warsaw, there is a special parade, which is also televised. Celebrations across the country will include firework displays, concerts and parades. It is also a time for family reunions. Independence Day is an official public holiday in Poland, so schools, banks, government offices, and most private businesses are closed. There is a trade prohibition on public holidays in Poland, so most shops are closed. My family never really actually celebrated it other than just enjoying a day off from work or school. However, most of the times, they ask students to come to school dressed in black and white (we do not have uniforms and so black and white is sort of 'celebratory' outfit) and just listen to teachers just talking about our school for an hour or two. But there were no lessons at all, which used to make me rather happy, believe me!
  6. Atlas moth is one of the largest moth species, which lives mostly in the Asian forests. It was discovered by Carl Linnaeu in 1758. As I mentioned, it is large. It has a wingspan of 24cm (9.4in) and a wing surface area of about 160cm2 (~25in2). They are most prominent in the tropical forests near Mount Kinabalu (Malaysia). Fun fact is that in Cantonese, their name means 'snake's head moth'. A bit odd if you ask me. Monarch butterfly is one of the most known butterfly species, which lives mostly in the United States. It was also discovered by Carl Linnaeu in 1758. They are not very big, in fact quite the opposite. They weigh less than half a gram with their wingspan reaching only 4 inches. As with many species, females are much larger than males. A fun fact is that they are poisonous, and so if eaten by predators, it would get them sick.
  7. This is Chrysolina Cerealis, also known simply as the rainbow leaf beetle. They are common in most countries in Europe and Asia, however, their vast population lives in Norway, northern Italy, Russia and east and west Wales. They are most love forests, woodlands and meadows so this is where they build their lovely homes. A grown beetle is 5.5.-10mm (0.22-0.39in) long, with females being larger than males. Females lay eggs during June, with adults being spotted between April and September. They feed mostly on flowers and leaves. Not much is known about this beetle since it is considered to be extremely endangered. In the United Kingdom, they are currently protected under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981. According to some sources, they have not been found in Wales since 1980. An estimate of about one thousand adults has been decided and they are said to be in a serious decline.

  9. Are there any other people who I can call 'father' in my life? Hm...not really. Although, I really like my father-in-law, well Harry's biological father. He is a really cool guy, and as Hazz said he is from the lower class. This is one of the reasons why I like him the most. I am also from a lower class and I married a person from the upper class, just like he did ages ago. This makes him understand me better and he is so nice and fair with me. He is super supportive of me and cares about me. Most importantly, he is a great dad to Harry and lovely grandfather to our children, which is the most important to me in general.
  10. I could say the same thing. My biological father left my mum when she was pregnant, which makes him kind of *a word I can't say due to the HOL rules, let's keep it family friendly here!*. As a child I used to ask a lot because there were never any photos of him. Apparently I am more like him visually - green eyes, long wavy brown hair. He also liked music and was in a band, just like me. Additionally, which is funny to me, is the fact he was American! That makes me half American - what a funny world.
  11. Well I am going to really have a deep think about this one since I am completely missing on this one. I don't have actual parents since I am an orphan. The only foster guardian, which I admit is worth celebrating is my step-mum. She is a nice person (well most of the time) and she always makes sure I have enough to eat (which is not really needed since my husband is amazing at that already. I mean...I am a bit 'chubby') and she always remembers about my birthday. She tries her best to adjust to being a foster parent of an old man (haha)!
  12. Oh I agree, I have really liked them too! They were so incredible as a family, with all of them being faithful and supper supportive of them. I agree that despite them being significantly poor, they did a wonderful job by providing their children with all cool stuff. Although in my opinion this is really unfair that they were so poor. Arthur worked for the Ministry and the fact they did not pay him enough, it's especially awful and unjust. I also really liked the 'adult' brothers, which were barely shown in the movie, such as William or Charles Weasley.
  13. It may sound silly but I always liked the Collins family from the series Twilight. They were always supper supportive of each other and had strong believe in one self. The last movie from this series, pictured how the family got together to protect Bella's daughter. You can clearly see how the family is supportive of one another and although a bit scared at first, decides to join together to prove to Vulturi that Bella has not committed a crime. This for me shows how amazing they are together. Although most was not related, they still formed a lovely and strong family.
