The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Mountains!



There are few days in the year that make us want to return to school, but today is definitely one of them. On December 11, Mountain Day means classes are cancelled (hooray!) and your class, along with the student body, head to the mountains or a park for the day.  Doesn’t that sound fun? A picnic, a great book to read – sounds like the perfect day. And being surrounded by mountains seems like an ideal backdrop for a little r & r.

The General Assembly deemed this day as International Mountain Day back in 2002. Since then, they have encouraged communities (internationally) to organize events on December 11th to highlight the importance of sustainable mountain development.

Whether you’re taking a beautiful drive, heading down a slope on your snowboard or simply taking a peaceful hike – stop and take in the beauty of the mountains surrounding you. If you want to take your appreciation a step further, check to see if your local community is doing anything to celebrate this wonderful day. Your participation is just a Google search away!

If you’re housebound or stuck in the office today, don’t fret. If you can’t go to the mountains, BookRix will bring them to you with these two mountain themed eBooks.
