Each country and culture has its own set of public holidays and festivals. Some of these holidays and festivals like Christmas and New Year are common across the world. But there are many other holidays that are unknown.
Blessed Rainy Day
Life in a country where it rains a lot can be hard. In Bhutan, Blessed Rainy Day is a holiday marking the end of the rainy season. On this day, everyone is encouraged to enjoy a bath out of the house to wash away bad luck.
Melon Day
Turkmenistan’s Melon Day is a celebration of its national fruit. It takes place in August. Thousands of mouth-watering melons will be sent to the country’s capital Ashgabat on Sunday to celebrate the holiday.

Punch Your Neighbor Festival
The cities of Potosi and Macha in Bolivia hold the festival in the Bolivian Andes Mountains in May every year. It is celebrated by thousands of people and it’s based on the Quechua word “Tinku” that means “meeting”. The meaning of the word has become worse as it is celebrated with beatings that can really hurt people now.

  What’s better than a presentA home-made present of course!
A home-made present is a present that someone makes by themselves. In my opinion, this is better than something bought in a shop, even if it doesn’t cost very much.
A home-made gift is much more personal, and it shows that a lot of effort(努力) and thoughts have gone into making it. Also, if something is home-made, it is unique!The same can’t be said for the millions of iPhones or other things that people own.
I’ve given my friends cakes in the past as a present. Cakes are usually a very good gift because there are different kinds of cakes to make. You could make a cheese cake or a big sponge cake with jam and cream in the middle, or my personal favourite, a tasty chocolate cake!Even if you’ve never made a cake before, there are lots of books and websites that could help you—have a look in your local library or simply google “how to make a cake”.
A home-made gift doesn’t necessarily mean something you have made out of materials(材料). It can mean other things as well. For example, collecting lots of photos and sticking them together is a great gift, and it is very easy to make. I love looking at photos because it can help me remember what I was doing, who I was with and where we were.
Making a card is very simple as well. All you need is a pen and some paper. Even if you’re not very good at drawing, sticking some cartoon characters can be funny and cool!
So why not have a tryNext time you give a present to your friend, give something home-made to him or her and make it really special.

When we see babies or pets, we can’t help gently touching them to show our love. And they give us happy feelings back. But a recent study shows that it’s different for plants.
A study, published in The Plant Journal, shows that plants don’t like to be touched. That’s because touching changes their genes(基因) and, even worse, can slow their growth. Professor Jim Whelan in Australia gave an explanation. The lightest touch from a human, an animal, an insect, or even plants touching each other in the wind, leads to a huge gene change in the plant.
