Branching Out – How to Celebrate Arbor Day
Trees are amazing living things.
They can live for hundreds of years, they can grow under all kinds of extreme conditions and they quietly cleanse CO2 from our atmosphere and provide us with oxygen.
They sway in the breeze, freeze in the winter and offer us welcome shade on a hot summer’s day. Trees give us everything from a perch for our childhood clubhouse to the wood in our pencils to the heat in our fireplace.
We should celebrate trees every day of the year, but the official holiday to honor these leafy wonders is Arbor Day.
The name Arbor Day comes from the Latin word “arbor” which means tree.
This holiday is dedicated to the planting and care of trees and it originated in Nebraska in 1872.
The holiday is observed in the springtime and the date changes according to the suitable planting conditions. In 2012, Arbor Day will be held on April 27th.
Here are a few ideas of what you can do on Arbor Day:
Get Some Sunshine For Cheaper: Budget Beach Destinations
Although winter snow can be lovely, there comes a point after your hands have gone numb from scraping the ice from your windshield and your back is sore from shoveling, when you wish that you could just lie back on a hammock under a palm tree and soak up some sun for a change.
If your budget is a bit tight this year you might be thinking that a beach holiday to a warmer climate is outside of your price range.
However, there are many cheap and hot travel destinations that can be reached from the USA for a lot less than you might think.

It’s Time for Spring Cleaning!
The snow is starting to melt, the sun is starting to come out of hiding and the birds are starting to sing in the trees.
Soon the flower buds will begin to open and the grass will transform into a lush carpet of green.
Spring is on the way and this time of rebirth and renewal is a great time to give a “spring cleaning” to all aspects of your life. You might do a spring cleaning on your home every year, getting rid of clutter and brushing away the cobwebs.
However, have you ever thought about giving a metaphorical spring clean to your lifestyle?
Taking some time to spring clean your life can help you eliminate old stresses, set new goals and approach the summer feeling fresh and energized.

How to Keep Your Car Organized
Your car is your important mode of transport between point A and B, but if you are like many people you might also be in the habit of using it as a trash can on wheels.

Exploring the Historical Sites of Puerto Rico
The Caribbean island of Puerto Rico has a long and fascinating history. Because it is located right in the middle of the “New World” it has been a target of conquest for many centuries.
Christopher Columbus landed on the island in 1493, on his second voyage of discovery. It was later settled by the Spanish explorer known as Ponce de Leon and was under possession by the Spanish for over 400 years.
At the end of the Spanish American war, the island of Puerto Rico became United States territory due to the Treaty of Paris.
