Theme – Horses

There are a lot of things horses contributed to human society. Back in the old times, they were used as draft animal and were even used in war. Horses were one of the chief means of transportation. They were considered wild animals but were believed to be tamed and trained some 4,000 years ago. They had been a partner and friend to humans. Due to exposure to humans, there are now many different breeds of horses. Some breeds are used for racing while others are bred for specific tasks.

Horses and humans have an eccentric relationship. They were even used to plow fields and bring in the harvest, carry goods and passengers, and adventurers to unknown lands. They are associated with the terms chivalry and cavalier, which connote honor, respect, good manners, and straightforwardness.

Theme – Festivals

A festival is an event ordinarily celebrated by a community and centering on some characteristic aspect of that community and its religion or culture. This constitutes typical cases of glocalization, as well as the high culture-low culture interrelationship. Festivals often serve to fulfill specific communal purposes, especially in regard to commemoration or thanking to the gods, goddesses or saints: they're called patronal festivals. They may also provide entertainment, which was particularly important to local communities before the advent of mass-produced entertainment.

There are different kinds of festivals which are celebrated across the globe. This could be a celebration of good harvest, cultural, religious, art, or music. There are also different ways on how they celebrate their kind of festival. Whether it’s a seasonal festival honoring the new year or an art festival with decades of tradition, festivals help connect us to our roots, our culture, and our values.
