Celebration Issue

November/December 2019

We are celebrating the launch of Bloomer Magazine by exploring various celebrations around the world

One of the benefits of globalisation is that we are exposed to food, art, music, history, and views that enrich our experiences and clue us into a world beyond our every day. We like the familiar because it brings us a sense of comfort and belonging, but it's also heartening that we can be surprised and delighted by something unknown and different, add it to our repertoire to make it part of our own traditions. In this issue we take a look into some of the global celebrations that our various international communities carry with them from their homelands and share with us.

Bloomer Magazine is only available for subscription through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
