HAPPY NEW YEAR!
New Years Day was first recognized (as far as we know) by Ancient Mesopotamia about 2000 BCE, and is probably the largest public holiday celebrated, since the world is pretty much on the Gregorian calendar now (interesting sidebar: if you are not aware that the calendar has not always been like it is today, look it up, its history is fascinating!).
A time of new beginnings, how do you celebrate the New Year? Do you make resolutions? Clean the house (business)? Ignore the whole thing? Perhaps you resolve to treat yourself (and other) in a more nurturing, healthy way: more hot baths, runs to the ski slope, hikes in mountains? Don't forget to do a little mineral exploration while you are out there (we have all the supplies for that, as well as for pampering your mind and soul). We here at Mama's Minerals are taking inventory and getting ready for our Albuquerque store to make its big move this summer to a new location to better serve you!
Whatever you decide to do over the next few months, as the days grow longer and the sun returns, make sure to take good care of yourself: every human being is precious, and that includes you!
