Happy April Fool’s Day, 2017!
This date, April 1, is universally associated with practical jokes, pranks and foolishness. I’m not exactly sure of the reason and researching the topic has proved to be as confusing as an April Fool’s Day joke. The closest explanation that I can find is that the date first was recorded in English in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales in 1392. This doesn’t explain the why as much as it offers a historical context for the custom.

Congratulations! Today is the final day of the month of March, 2017!

Here it is, the end of my third month of publishing ReNude Pride! It seems like only yesterday that I was writing my first post here on a blustery, frigid and snowing Saturday morning, in the beginning of a new year, and now we’re into the Spring season of 2017. Time flies and it does offer some wonderful and fun times. One of the better aspects of blogging is the connections it affords in linking with a fantastic crowd of exciting bare practitioners (naturists/nudists). The camaraderie alone makes the barren winters bearable!

Pictured above is my BPM (bare practitioner of the month), Kenn Campbell-Harris, author of the blog, Gay Black Nudist (click title to visit his site). I discovered his online journal early this past January and he’s a talented writer and a true nude prince! He’s an American and is currently living in Thailand with his husband. Back in January, when I posted my End of Month Reflections (click to view), Kenn gallantly volunteered to grant me this interview. That’s one of many reasons why I consider him a true nude prince!

Tomorrow, March 25, is Greek Independence Day. This celebration marks the date in 1821, when the peoples who live in what is now Greece, rose up in revolt against the Turkish occupiers of their homeland. A protracted war ensued that culminated in the eventual establishment of the modern state of Greece. I am posting this brief history in anticipation of the religious feast day and the national holiday.
This day (March 25) is the Feast of the Annunciation of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary, Mother of God) in the Greek Orthodox Church. This feast commemorates the Archangel Gabriel appearing to the Virgin Mary and announcing to her that she will bear the son of God. The organizers of the early Greek revolt selected this feast day to begin the insurrection.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, today is officially the first day of the Spring of 2017! We managed to somehow survive another barren winter and are eager to begin the season of renewal and rebirth! Most of us are savvy enough to realize that just because today is the beginning of the new season, it doesn’t mean that it’s even remotely possible for all of us to strip off our winter clothing and go prancing about in bare abandon.

Although I’m not Irish, it is very difficult to live in today’s world and not be aware that this is the day when all Irishmen consider the rest of the world as Irish, also! Today is St. Patrick’s Day, the feast day of the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick is the man attributed with driving the snakes out of Ireland and converting many of the indigenous people there to the Roman Catholic faith. It’s also a day where Irishmen everywhere celebrate their heritage and its many legends and heroes.
