EASTER TRADITIONS AROUND THE WORLD

To conduct an etymological examination of "Easter" we must refer to the English term "Easter" which would bring us back to ancient cults related to the coming of spring and in particular to an ancient pagan goddess, the goddess Eostre.

Grimm, a well-known scholar of Nordic mythology in his "Teutonic Mythology" describes Heroes as a pagan divinity bearer of fertility and connects it to the light of the East and in particular to the Spring equinox that was called by the Celtic peoples "Eostur-Monath" and later "Ostara".

Literature, philosophy, sociology, law and any other areas of interest which are highly culture-dependent are beyond the scope of MT. It is true now, and will probably always be true.

 What is Smart Working (and where is it?)?

It would be useful to write a "glossary of contemporaneity", a handbook that contains all those "English" that populate our everyday language. Technical terms for every sector, more or less youthful slang... many words used - and above all flaunted - by anyone to appear mainly smart.

In addition, “smart” is one of these, of course. English term is almost untranslatable because it contains many meanings: from "intelligent" to "quick", from "smart" to "elegant", from "fashionable" to "brazen", from "strong" to "brilliant"... and many others, even verbal, always mostly positive.
