Ririn Ekawati (Foto: Radarcirebon)

ANAK-ANAK sering rewel di pesawat, baik akibat tekanan udara maupun turbulensi. Aktris cantik Ririn Ekawati punya cara biar anak tidak pernah rewel.

Fasilitas di pesawat ternyata membuat anak Ririn menjadi tenang dan tidak rewel seperti anak yang lain. Karena sang anak menikmati hiburan sehingga tidak berpikir tentang hal buruk di esawat.

“Anakku tidak rewel saat duduk di pesawat. Karena dia menikmati hiburan yang disediakan di pesawat, seperti nonton film,” kata Ririn kepada Okezone di Gedung Djakarta Theater XXI, Thamrin, Jakarta Pusat, Rabu 7 Januari 2015.

Hal tersebut membuat pemeran Salma dalam film ‘Di Balik 98’ ini merasa senang. Karena ia tidak repot mengatur dan meminta anaknya untuk tenang. Kepanikan anaknya masih dalam tahap wajar, sebab sang anak hanya minta Ririn memeganginya ketika pesawat mendarat.
“Paling di saat landing pesawatnya suka goyang-goyang, dia cuma minta pegangan tangan,” tutup Ririn.

We refer to most seasons by the names that were commonly used by our ancestors. Winter is from the German word meaning "time of water" (of rain and snow.) Spring refers to the springing forth of life from the earth. The word autumn comes from the original Latin word "autumnus". The alternate term, fall, originated with the Germans but became commonplace with the mid16th century English who typically referred to fall as meaning "the fall of the leaves."

Here's a look at some common symbols and traditions associated with Fall or Autumn.
Vegetable Myth and Folklore: "Many vegetables are surrounded by a long and colorful history of symbolic meaning and mythical tales. artichokes, tomatoes, onions, and cabbage are found around the world, woven into religious tales, and ancient folklore.

'Vegetables are the food of the earth; fruit seems more the food of the heavens. ~Sepal Felicivant'

If we are from Mother Nature herself, food is valuable, not only because it is capable of bringing us mouthwatering nourishment, but most importantly because they impart upon us the lasting wonder and importance of nature's beauty and magic.

April's birthstone is the Diamond.
Diamond (Stone of Innocence): The traditional symbol of love, since ancient Greece. Symbolizes peace, fidelity, innocence, and serenity. It was once believed that diamonds endowed the wearer with charm and the ability to attract others.

April's birth flowers are the Daisy and Sweet Pea.

- The daisy was said to spring from the tears of Mary Magdalene.
- It was known as 'God's smile' and 'Day's Eye', an Anglo Saxon name, which morphed to the current word daisy. This is because the flower opened and closed with the sun's rays.
- In magic, it would be used in any fair weather spells or rites to honor the Sun.
- The daisy was associated with Venus, commonly used as a lovers' divination, plucking the petals while chanting "s/he loves me, s/he loves me not".
- Medieval knights wore daisy chains made for them by their Ladies when they rode into battle or tournaments, as a sign of their affection and defense of their Ladies' honor.

April's tree's are Walnut, Rowan and Maple
Maple tree symbolism includes balance, promise and practicality.
Pre-Christian Easter Origins:
Easter, a Christian festival, embodies many pre-Christian traditions. Easter is thought to originally have been named after "Eostre", the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe, she was the Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility, to whom April was dedicated. Her name derives from "Eastre" which is the ancient word for spring.

Eostre's festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox; traditions associated with the festival survive with the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored Easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring.


Christian Origins of Easter:
The Christian festival of Easter probably embodies a number of religious traditions; most scholars emphasize the original relation of Easter to the Jewish festival of Passover, or "Pesach", from which is derived "Pasch", another name for Easter.

The early Christians, many of whom were of Jewish origin, were brought up in the Hebrew tradition and regarded Easter as a new feature of the Passover festival, a commemoration of the advent of the Messiah as foretold by the prophets.

The Current Christian Easter:
Easter is the annual festival commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the principal feast of the Christian year. It is celebrated on a Sunday on varying dates between March 22 and April 25 and is therefore called a movable feast.

Connected with the observance of Easter, is the 40-day penitential season of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding at midnight on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday.
