cantinas do Polo III no mês de janeiro trazem uma nova opção de
estudos para os alunos. Agora aberta ate às 4 da manhã, funcionam como
uma sala de estudos, uma vez que antes disso, só havía a opção da
biblioteca para os alunos que moram nos arredores da Universidade. Com
isso, a cantina funcionará com um serviço de sopas e baguetes até às
8:30 da noite, e depois haverá uma maquina de café disponivel para os
alunos durante toda a noite.
quem não sabe, há outros espaços de estudo para os estudantes da
Universidade de Coimbra. No Polo I, existem várias salas de estudo, uma
delas por exemplo no Colégio São Jeronimo. Há também espaço na cantina
do 5° piso. Na Associação Académica, também há uma sala de estudos.
Somehow all of the "Western" countries influenced by European culture seem to celebrate in a more or less similar way. But how is it when we go farther, to the far, far East? Maybe China?
has a different calendar, in our tradition following the moon calendar, New Year’s Eve is
celebrated in February!
Many Chinese traditions originate from
ancient history: in the old days, a horrible monster whose name was
"Year“ used to terrify all Chinese villages, killing many people and devastate the country. Its
madness ended thanks to a man, dressed in red, who spent
his days burning bamboo and making a lot of noise. The monster "Year" got burnt and passed away. That’s the reason why RED is the color that brings good
luck on NYE! Instead of white and black, which you should avoid on this festivity since they symbolize death and mourning... Also the Chinese calendar designs each year a specific animal, a bit like Zodiac symbols, the upcoming year will be under the sign of the snake.
In order to keep the monster from returning we developed some interesting traditions for New Year's Eve:
the door and gather all family together (but just for one day, afterwards we're paying visits to relatives and friends), paste red couplets on the
doors, burn fireworks and bonfires to scare "Year", wearing new
clothes (especially red ones) to demonstrate the happy atmosphere, but also to scare bad things away, and finally the dinner in the evening with the whole family coming together and preparing the best dishes as a foreshadowing or symbolic act that everyone will have but good food during the year to come. A typical food is called "Jiao
zi", which would be translated as "dumpling" in English (usually salty, with lots of different variations), there is a little coin put inside one of the jiao zi and the lucky person who gets this one is considered to expect a new year full of luck and prosperity. Then we watch a live TV show that almost every Chinese family watches, which is called "CCTV Spring Festival Gala".
Also very typical is that adult people give pocket money to the younger ones who give compliments and kind words in exchange. Usually the more creative the verse, the more generous the donors...
Babel's Soki surely is from Belgium, but of Angolean descent. How is she spending her New Year's usually? In the following article, she tells us about the most common Belgian traditions and the African way of celebrating her family still maintains and worships.
Belgium, we like celebrations and New Year's Eve for sure is a good
moment to get relief from the past year's stress and uncomfortable moments: It’s a holiday and people need joy, happiness
and lights in the streets, decorations...and then we await the arrival of
sales in the shops! THIS moment of the year is certainly magic to me... To be perfectly honest,
I don't know much about the habits of Belgian people. I was born in
Belgium, but I'm Angolan, so my family celebrates the Angolan way,
following this African culture.
talking about the Belgian way of spending New Year’s Eve, actually,
it’s not that easy to respond anyway... they don’t have just one tradition! Basically, young people celebrate that night the way they prefer more. During
Saint Sylvester (that’s the name of the last night of the year), at
midnight, Belgians drink champagne and watch the fireworks and bonfires in
the sky. I
don’t know about a traditional Belgian dish. In my celebrations with my
friends, we buy whatever we like to eat, without paying attention to a
specifical “dinner culture”. Apart from dinner, one really traditional thing is kissing under the mistletoe: it brings good luck and prosperity for the upcoming year!
when I celebrate with my folks, the entire family is present: parents, siblings,
uncles, cousins, my parents's friends, my friends... in Africa, the traditional term "family" is more likely to be extended on people you are close to, although you're not related by ancestry.
With this huge bunch of invites, we eat a lot
of African food (vegetables, meat, fish, fufu, pondu,...) before
midnight and at midnight the eldest person of the family usually says a prayer
to thank God for everything and to ask him for blessing and protection for the family during
the New Year. The first day of the new year is more about having fun at night, with music, dancing... we welcome the new year with a lot of joy! Everybody has to be happy on New Year’s Day without
thinking of bad moments or sad things!
Another trip across the pond, this time with Anna Charlotte to Brazil, where she introduces us to their specialties and peculiarities.
new year in Brazil is a really great celebration. Due to the country's enormous territorial area and the huge amount of merging and differing cultures and customs, there are many ways of enjoying and meeting people for that special
start with a typical family celebration: In general, people join their
families for small parties in their houses. Surely that depends on how big the
family is, but it´s common to invite grandparents, aunts, uncles and
nephews, close friends and neighbors to celebrate the New Year together with you. For these
parties, it is common to find different kinds of food, a wide variety
of dishes, but the most common is pork: there is an interesting
superstition that says it's good to eat meat at this time. Poultry
isn’t indicated because it scratches on the back, while beef, pork and
sheep are animals that walk forward, thus bringing more prosperity.
There are also many public festivals organized, to watch fireworks and bonfires. Each city has
street parties, or private ones in clubs, where they offer musical attractions besides the traditional
The most traditional festivity known in
Brazil is the "reveillon" of Copacabana, in Rio de Janeiro, where people from
all over the world come to watch the spectacle of lights on the beach.
are als, some others superstitions about New Year Eve: The use of
white cloths for example, an influence from African religions like
Candomblé, where followers show their respect to the beach dressing in
white. Still, many people use white clothing regardless of religion, but
just because it’s become such a commercial thing! It doesn’t mean that
everybody has to wear white clothes, we mix a lot of colors! But the
very important thing is just not to be dressed in black or brown, because they
are considered sad colors.There are also some recommendable rituals like placing a laurel leaf in your wallet to bring money.
Well, as I already mentioned, Brazil is a mixture of cultures and traditions... there are
so many other things you can’t even imagine! In each
region, each city, no matter how tiny or big it might be, people have always created and
recreated traditions that were passed on through generations.
This show's Argentinean ambassador Soledad on her NYE:
don’t know how it is in your countries guys, but in Argentina Christmas
and New Year's Eve are quite similar. That is: a lot of food, a lot of
drinks, and also a lot of dancing (ok, the last thing depends on the family). I’m
from the capital, Buenos Aires and I live in a “Barrio”, close to other people who are not only neighbors, but friends. So it’s very easy to go on the
streets and have a drink with them on the sidewalk. We also organized
some neighborhood parties on the corners of the streets or in some squares.
We usually toast twice to the New Year at midnight, first, after the family dinner
on December 24th, so that's kind of an antecipating toast and finally on December 31st. After the toast everyone is free to
go wherever they want to, and it’s very common that teens and young adults go and see
friends and lovers. The rest of the family can stay awake till long in
the morning, I would guesstimate 5, 6 o'clock or maybe even later, drinking, eating sweet
things or sometimes just chatting.
Something really odd about our typical food is, that is not seasonal since the recipes are imported from Europe, where it's winter during this time, whilst we are sweating heavily under the south equatorian summer sun...
Here's a quick look at a typical Argentinean NYE menu: Starters;
1) Matambre 2) Vittel Toné: something really typical (it's cow meat
with a sauce made of tuna, mayonese and olive oil) 3) Empanadas: could
be cow meat or chicken meat
Main Dish: “Lechon con ensalada rusa”
For the toast something really sweet: sidra and ananá fizz (it might also be champagne, but since that's quite expensive it's not very common with the middle class). Sweets:
The most important is the "mantecol" and the "garrapiñadas". Mantecol I
think is a Greek sweet, but we eat it a lot in christmas, and
garrapiñadas are sweet nuts. We also must have "pan dulce", a kind of
panettone, with walnuts, hazelnuts and dried fruit that has a lot of calories,
that we obviously don’t need during a 38°C summer. The only refreshing part is
fruit salad and/with ice cream.
Have you ever wondered how our Spanish friends have passed the last few days? Pablo shares his New Year's Eve with us:
On New Year's Eve, we usually have dinner with the whole family and wait for the countdown! We're not only watching it, we're part of it! Indeed it's tradition, to eat 12 grapes when the clock strikes midnight, one for each toll and second. Whilst the new year is entering, we think about a resolution and congratulate our family members and all people we meet and know. After the “family”
celebration, most of the young people go partying until the day after. Of
course, after all this eating, we cannot go to sleep without having a special
breakfast, “churros con chocolate
caliente” (some sort of hot chocolate with greasy pastry to dip in)!
In Madrid, the 31 of December in the afternoon there is a popular
marathon, is not a regular race, is much more funny, thousands of people
running through the town on a 10km course and all the streets are
closed for this race. Most of the people are dressed up with original
and funny costumes, and what could be better than saying goodbye to the
year than running? In my family we're often participating in that run anfterwards, we're mostly following the “main tradition” and have dinner and all of the mentioned above and below.
There is no proper typical food for a New Year's celebration. Our
dinner is more or less like the Christmas dinner. But we certainly drink lots of
wine, champagne and sparkling wine (in Spain also known as Cava). We start dining with an appatizer: pieces
of lamb, spanish ham, olive oils, the famous tapas and so on, followed by a hot soup,
to fight the cold of December! After that we start with the "real" food:
meat (usually lamb), and many typical sweets called polvorones (a kind of heavy, soft and very crumbly spanish shortbread made of flour, sugar, milk, and nuts).
