Some time ago, I had posted about public display of affection (PDA). There is an increasing trend of PDA, especially among the younger generation. Many teens are found hanging outside schools and in public parks, kissing and snuggling. While many onlookers often turn a blind eye to their overtures, I can't help feeling that the display of affection was dramatized for my entertainment.
On a similar note, many young lovers are often confused between attraction and love. The lightheaded feeling, the heightened senses, and an irresistible desire to be with the object of your affection may make you feel like you are in love. But what if your feelings are purely physical? Are you only interested in your sweetheart's body, or do you feel a deeper connection?
Attraction may be the first phase of love. The magnetic pull that draws you closer to another person is attraction. However, attraction may either materialize into something significant, or simply fizzle out for the lack of spark. If you find yourself drawn to someone for more than merely physical reasons, chances are that you are in love.
Here are falling in love quotes. These quotes echo your feelings. If you want to understand true love, read these true love quotes. Also, understand what makes relationships work with these relationship quotes.
Love is as grand and vibrant as life itself. To understand love, one lifetime may not be enough.

You are lucky to live in this era, for you are about to witness a rare phenomenon that has not taken place since 1888 -- one which will not happen again for another 70,000 years. On November 28, 2013, the world will celebrate two major festivals: Hanukkah and Thanksgiving.
Hanukkah, according to the Jewish calendar, will fall on 25th day of the Jewish month of Kislev, which is November 27, 2013. Since Hanukkah is celebrated for eight days and nights, the second night of Hanukkah will coincide with Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, that is, November 28, 2013.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has announced that he will declare November 28 as "Thanksgivukkah Day", making this celebration a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Not surprisingly, "Thanksgivukkah" has become a catchphrase on social media, to celebrate this unique combination of festivals. Many people are inventing Thanksgivukkah recipes that incorporates the traditional foods of both festivals. The confluence of the two cultures will quite likely give rise to new trends and customs.
Go ahead and celebrate Thanksgiving with renewed enthusiasm. Send out good wishes to your Jewish friends. Here is a great opportunity to learn more about other cultures. Invite your Jewish friends for Thanksgiving, and participate in Hanukkah celebrations enthusiastically.

What better way to usher in Thanksgiving than reliving childhood memories? And one of those beautiful memories included watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with family. Well, apparently, there is a better way to celebrate Thanksgiving.
For those of you who cannot get enough of dear Peanuts and his friends, download the interactive A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving app from Google Play Store. Android device owners can enjoy this animated app, which is based on the 1973 special broadcast on TV. The makers have retained the original music, sound effects, and dialogs from the original cartoon series.
Many of us who lived in the generation when cartoons were the only kind of children's entertainment, this one takes you down nostalgia lane. Not just can you reminisce the best scenes from the TV episodes, you can also recollect golden memories that made Thanksgiving so special. Back then, Thanksgiving was a simple affair -- not as commercialized as it is today.
But thanks to the Internet revolution, we can have our favorite cartoon buddy Peanuts amongst us this Thanksgiving. If your kids are not familiar with the cartoon series, you may interest them with this app.
Raise a toast to A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! Wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
