Happy First Day of Spring! Maslenitsa, the traditional Russian holiday celebrating the end of winter, has already come and gone. On March 21, spring equinox, Persian and Turkic communities across the world are celebrating a holiday called Navruz.
The Olympics bring together athletes from around the world,
and even if tensions run high about geopolitics or a half second difference in
race time, the games give athletes and fans alike an opportunity to overcome their
differences and celebrate each other’s victories.
