A Simple Mocktail and a Super Moon…..

23 Mar

March 19th 2011 was a historic and special day for few reasons. Holi festival, Supermoon and a cool mocktail. Holi is a religious Hindu festival celebrated on the last full moon day during feb and March. During this day people share their happiness by spraying different colors on friends,family and neighbours. For Riya, it was her first time in preparing mocktail all by herself. All decorations were her own ideas. This mocktail is a mix of apple juice and water. I was slicing some mango pieces for dinner, and then she asked me one for her to taste. But after few minutes, when she showed me the final product , it was really cool. I can already see that she started showing lot of interest in my area.

While this was going on, we were all excited to watch the Supermoon in sky. It was amazing to watch the beautiful bright moon.Supermoon is our own moon, but on this special day, it came closer to earth in its elliptical orbit. It is also called lunar perigee.  Though the moon was bigger, it was unable to differentiate with naked eye. Lasttime it happened 18 years ago.

Bright Supermoon.
