Mix it up – Different ways to say “beautiful”

January 6, 2016

When we learn a new language it’s very common to overuse a word. You may have learned the word “fantastic” and then you can’t get out of the habit of saying it over and over again, even if it doesn’t always fit the purpose. In this case, synonyms are your friend. A synonym is a word or phrase that means exactly or nearly the same as another word or phrase in the same language. It might be a beautiful person, landscape or book, but if you use the same word to describe them all, it will start to lose its meaning. So, we’ve compiled a list of synonyms for the word beautiful.

What to do at Hallowe’en in Dublin

October 20, 2015

Though every American movie about Halloween would suggest otherwise, Halloween actually began right here in Celtic Ireland. It originates from the pagan festival, Samhain, a time of renewal and revival, but also the time of year that departed souls would return to their homes along with malevolent spirits from the underworld. This pagan tradition means that the Irish take Halloween very seriously, and we mean veeery seriously. Bonfires, trick-or-treating, fireworks, costume parties, bopping for apples, and all night dancing, are all things to expect. Halloween 2015 will be an amazing autumnal celebration with the weird, the wacky, and the spooky cascading across the streets of Dublin like a deadly and spine-tingling mist.
