Why STaiRwaY?
Upon taking a glance on my blog, STAIRWAY... maybe you'll ask why STAIRWAY? What is in it? Well, I chose STAIRWAY simply because it speaks of taking a STEP either going up or going down in order to reach the next level or even reach a place where you want to go. It is my avenue to reach out to the world and share my hopes and aspirations in life as well as sharing the wonders of dwelling here in the Philippines.

Don't Make A Fool out Of Me

>> Wednesday, December 30, 2009

"Don"t make a fool out of me!" These were the words I uttered last December 28, 2009 when somebody tried to fool me. They took advantage of the situation because it was "Innocents Day". People celebrate Innocents Day every December 28. They make this day an avenue for foolishness.
       The festival of the Roman Catholic Church is celebrated every 28th day of December in memory of the Massacre of the Innocents, the children of Bethlehem who were allegedly slaughtered by King Herod after the birth of Jesus. The massacre of the Innocents is an episode of mass infanticide by the King of Judea, Herod the Great, that appears in the Gospel of Matthew 2:16-18. The author, traditionally believed to be Matthew the Evangelist, reports that Herod ordered the execution of all young male children in the village of Bethlehem, so as to avoid the loss of his throne to a newborn King of the Jews whose birth had been announced to him by the Magi. Like much of Matthew's gospel, the incident is introduced as the fulfillment of passages in the Old Testament read as prophecies: "Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying, A voice was heard in Ramah, Weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children.The infants, known in the Church as the Holy Innocents, have been claimed as the first Christian martyrs.  
        Have you tried fooling somebody during Innocents Day?
