Desfechos

Tique-taque … Tique-taque … Este é o som do dia, do ano e, no fundo, da vida. Com o final do ano já a espreitar da esquina, O Dia de Tique-taque lembra-nos que ainda há coisas que estão por fazer e na verdade apenas dois dias para as terminar.

Pretendia pintar aquele quarto? Talvez compor aquela saia, ou ainda limpar a garagem. Todas essas coisas são possíveis nos últimos momentos de desvanecimento do ano. Talvez o que ficou inacabado seja de natureza mais pessoal. Gostava de reconciliar uma velha amizade este ano? Ou resolver um antigo desentendimento com um membro de família? Talvez finalmente tomou um momento para definir algo certo e apenas nunca encontrou o tempo. O Dia de Tique-taque dá-lhe essa oportunidade!

Todos os anos as pessoas aguardam a chegada da véspera de Ano Novo para estabelecer as suas resoluções, que, sejamos sinceros, raramente se vêem concluídas. Mas o que acontece com o tempo e os últimos momentos preciosos? O Dia de Tique-taque foi feito para nos encorajar a aproveitar os últimos restinhos de tempo para completar aquilo que queremos deixar no ano que passa ou avançar com o que queremos continuar no ano que se aproxima.

Não seria bom começar o ano que se avizinha com uma cabeça clara e um coração limpo? Contando que ainda tenha espírito suficiente, não deixe o fim do ano com arrependimentos, vá a nossa loja online e aproveite para verificar as promoções de final do ano. Saia e vença o Tique-taque.

Mantenha-se ECO.

Let it snow

Most parts of the world snowman is one of the best signs that winter and Christmas are almost upon us. It’s not something that we can praise of too much, given that to make a real snowman we need such one cold and white precipitation which here in Portugal is as rare as the hot nights in December.

These snow sculptures are usually made by children during holidays with friends or family. The modeling of such a made came to us from good old days when kids invented a winter game that originated from snow cleaning. For those who did not know, the easiest way to clear the snow during defrost is roll it into a globe, technique from which the first snowmen were made.

The former illustrations of snowmen date early nineteenth century and the first original photo that was kept to this day was taken in 1853, a mere fifteen years after the invention of photography. But even if that seems way too far and there is no clear reference to where and when this icy tradition first appeared, some of the pages in the renowned Book of Hours has their margins decorated with designs that include the figures of snowmen coming directly from the Middle Ages.

We now know that in many countries this tradition has immense value and attention, including the dedication and the magic of the statues, palaces and other magnificent structures that are made to beautify the strictest one of seasons. One of the biggest snowmen ever made was in 1999 in Bethel, state of Maine, in the USA. He was named “Angus, King of the Mountain” in honor of Angus King, who was then governor of Maine. The snowman was 35 meters tall and weighed more than 4,000 tons.

If you have the opportunity, take advantage of these days of vacation to do something different with your lovedones and do not forget to take gloves so you don’t freeze your hands. But for those who think about spending Christmas next to a fireplace, here are some offerings from our online store so that nothing goes wrong on your holiday.
