As we enjoy the bliss of these holidays, let’s take a moment and think about all the people out there, who don’t have all the privileges , we take for granted. As  of today I was taking a shower and the hot water didn’t come in quickly, it made me think about all the people who don’t have access to a hot shower….. well just one of the many examples , we need to be aware of how blessed we are.

The pomegranate fruit is originated from Iran and northern India, yet it is said that Iran is the largest exporter in the world, it is know as ” Anar”. Although here in California ], because of a similar climate, the pomegranate bushes are seen all around.

Once this fruit is opened up, it shows it’s real beauty, the kernels appear like jewels.

The Iranian tradition celebrates Yalda, on the longest and darkest night of the year, it’s a winter solstice celebration. Pomegranates are one of the significant fruits of this tradition.
