Black Hills Passion Play theatrical legend

One of Europe’s oldest productions, the Passion Play festival took place in June – August. It recreated events during the last seven days of the life of Christ. Meanwhile, it was first presented on the American stage in 1932. And it was American missionary and ethnologist Josef Meier (7 November 1874 – 28 November 1945) who brought it to the United States from Germany.
Although the story of Christ is eternal, the Black Hills Passion Play was not. Unfortunately, the Black Hills Passion Play had its final curtain call on August 31, 2008. Attendance had dropped throughout the later years. In all, more than 10 million people and four generations of families had attended the Black Hills Passion Play and made it a theatrical legend.

Admiring Red Maple leaf Japanese tradition
Momiji Matsuri – Japanese tradition of admiring the leaves during the autumn period, when the leaves acquire rich yellow, orange, purple or brown colors. This event in Japan in terms of its significance is equivalent to the cherry blossom in the spring, and many Japanese take part in it. The word “Momiji” is also a designation of red maples, which Japanese consider the most beautiful trees.

Everyone knows that Japan is an island country, narrowly stretched from north to south. The “Sakura Blossom Front”, which notifies the arrival of spring, begins its journey from the southern part of the islands, gradually paving its way to the north. But the “front of the red leaves” begins its movement in the fall in the opposite direction. With the deepening of the autumn, starting from the northern regions, the country gradually changes its coloration from summer green to fiery red and yellow.
