Why is the Holocaust called the Holocaust?-learning something new (series)

Hello Jujubears and welcome to another blog post,

Today, I will be continuing on from last week's blog post,http://jujupage1sblog.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/finding-something-new-to-study.html and answering the question 'why is the Holocaust called the Holocaust?'.
 So I searched up this question and it lead me to a number of different websites on the topic. The first one said:
This usage came about gradually. The lower-case "holocaust" has described the violent deaths of large groups of people probably since the 18th century, according the Oxford English Dictionary.
I decided to check out some other websites to see some different opinions. Wikipedia said that the word 'Holocaust' originated from the Greek term 'Holokausten' which meant "a completely (holos) burnt (kaustos) sacrificial offering," . However, the Holocaust in the 20th century involved 'no sacrificial offering'  argue some of the Jewish leaders, so I think (don't grant me on this one) that people are contemplating wether or not it should be called the Holocaust.
 I decided to consult the Google definition for the word 'Holocaust' just to confirm some of my research. It said:


Overall, I think the word Holocaust was used to describe the mass slaughter/destruction of the Jewish population. It's Greek origins also say that it has something to do with mass slaughter as well but perhaps not necessarily with the Jewish population. And maybe, some Jewish leaders are contemplating on wether or not  you should call the 20th century Holocaust the Holocaust because it has nothing to do with sacrificial offerings as perhaps said in it's Jewish origins.

I don't know. What do you think? Leave a comment down below letting me know,

See you next time,

Bloggerversary

Hello Jujubears and welcome to another blog post,

1 year ago. I started blogging. It was a big idea of mine because I loved to write. I remember my first ever blog post. It was about what I ate in the evening in Norfolk. I was so excited. I realised I had got some views almost instantly on that blog post. Then I realised that it was me. LOL. Just goes to show how inexperienced I was with the blogging community back then.
 I stopped blogging for a couple of months then got back into it again in the summer. I loved the summer because I visited my family for the first time in 5 years. They live far away on an island in the east coast of South Africa called Réunion. Its beautiful there and I never miss it because I have recorded my time there here on this blog.
 One of my biggest blogging challenges was when I did blogmas at Christmas. It was challenging but very rewarding in the end. You guys seemed to love it.
 I love blogging. I can express my thoughts and feelings very well. I am definitely going to continue this journey. Will you join me?
( this is getting a bit too soppy)


I want to set a challenge for you guys. Let's try and get to 100 followers on this blog by the end of the year. Comment,share and subscribe. And for the final time:

Thank you!🎉

My first dance style was ballet.

Finding something new to study

Hello Jujubears and welcome to another blog post,

Today, I am going to be doing something a little bit different. I've been on the hunt for something new to study. I looked up 'interesting things to study' and it came up with:


  • How to pickle your own vegetables (?!)
  • Learn a new language ( I am bilingual)
  • Learn to code (been doing enough of that already)
  • Find out more about microbiology (too complicated)
I just wanted to find out more about a particular subject. So then I searched up 'interesting SUBJECTS to study'. It came up with this:

  • Mathematics (I'm on holiday) 
  • English (again, I'm on holiday)
  • Complete study and practice of geography ( again,again, I'm on holiday)
So I thought. I've been really enjoying history. Let's search up some fun history topics to study. It came up with this.

  • Korean war (meh)
  • Franco-Spanish war (mmh)
  • The Crusades (maybe later)
  • Holocaust (interesting, I've been studying that)
So as you may have guessed. I will be 'studying' the Holocaust. I say studying but I'm really just going to be reading Anne Frank's diary and reading up some more info about it. I don't sound interested, but I am. Even though I've been reading Anne Frank's diary, there is still a lot I don't know about the Holocaust in general. Like why is it called the Holocaust?, what started it/what is the reason behind all the suffering? Is it right?. See, there is still a lot I don't know. So I will be updating my knowledge of each question every Sunday. See you then.


Do you know a lot about the Holocaust? Let me know in the comments below.

See you next time,

Bye

Plastic,plastic,plastic

Hello Jujubears and welcome to another blog post,

I am absolutely mortified! Recently, I got a block soap for Christmas. I thought that the packaging was just cardboard because it was placed in a cardboard little box. But when I opened it up, it was increased with plastic wrap! And then we wonder why there is so much plastic floating in our ocean's. Here is what it looked like:


It's not the first time that I've seen something pointlessly wrapped in plastic. Every time I go food shopping with my mum, I see things like apples and bananas wrapped in plastic. We don't need it. However, when I go to places like France, the fruit and vegetables are placed in boxes for you to pick from. Why can't it be like that here in the UK?


Comment down below what you think of this matter.

See you next time,

Bye

What I have enjoyed over January- January favourites

Hello Jujubears and welcome to another blog post,

Today I am going to be doing a favourites blog post. I would just firstly like to say a massive thank you to all of you guys. This month has been absolutely amazing. I hit over 80 views on my blog post which I am super happy about. It's nearly my 1 year anniversary of being on blogger and I am hoping to celebrate it in style this month. Thank you so much for the support it means a lot! Now, let's get on the the blog post.


  • So my first favourite is my bento box. If you dont know what a bento box is, its just a Japanese lunch box that is really cute! This was more towards the end of January but I really enjoyed using this as my lunch box for school.




  • My second favourite is Anne Frank's diary. I love her personality and I think that she's an inspiration. Book review coming soon on my book review blog.


  • The next favourite is this Tesco infusion tea. I haven't tried this particular flavour but I did try the Apple and cinnamon flavour and it was soo good!  

  • The next is the Boudoire silky hand and body lotion. I love this product because it smells like flowers and leaves my hands feeling really hydrated.

  • The last favourite is the White Grace perfume. I absolutely love the smell. It smells like spring flowers and you can get this at Tesco!

What are your January favourites? Let me know in the comments below! 

See you next time,

Bye
