Thanksgiving delicacy
 
Every year in November, the United States prepares the most important and the most emblematic family holiday: Thanksgiving.
 
The Pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving in 1621, a year after they arrived in the United States on the Mayflower. They wanted to thank God for the abundance of the harvest after a very harsh year that killed almost half of them because of hunger and disease. They also wanted to thank the Indians; who shared their knowledge of cultivation and made it a lot easier for the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims organized a party on three days and invited the Indians. They ate wild turkey, corn, pumpkins, etc.
 
Nowadays, the Holiday is a mixture of two traditions: the New England (northeastern of the United States) ancient custom to celebrate an abundant harvest, and the Puritans’ religious tradition to pray, feast, and thank God for his goodness (celebration tha...

 The Best Christmas Markets

Tallin Christmas Market_by arginorz 
The magic period of Christmas is fast approaching, only a few weeks left before D-Day and only a few days before the beginning of the Advent. Like every year, many Christmas markets are settled everywhere in Europe. MICEFINDER has selected some of the most beautiful markets, which can be an original event during an incentive in December.
 
The Christmas market tradition would date back to the 14th century, in Germany, where they were settled to celebrate Saint Nicholas Day, on December 6th. These markets, Striezelmarkt, then developed decade after decade and during the Reform era, in the 16th century, they became the Christkindlmarkt, to highlight the Christian Christmas instead of St Nicholas Day. During that period, they crossed the Rhine and arrived in Eastern France. Surrounded by Christmas trees, you will admire traditional arts and crafts, buy figures to decorate your Christmas crib or Christmas balls to decorate your tree, drink hot...

 Let's discover Ireland

Let’s discover Ireland
 
Ireland. Everyone knows that country, by name at least. However, it is not always the first country we think of to set up an incentive or a study group; and yet…
 
Ireland is a vibrant country, green, welcoming, with dozens of castles and typical villages, which almost seem anachronistic nowadays. It is the country of leprechauns, the famous joker pixies dressed in green, but it also is a Celtic country full of former Celtic places of worship, of megaliths, etc. Ireland gives us the impression to return to the roots, a sensation we all need at some point to recharge our batteries.
 
The big green spaces and castles built everywhere make it possible to set up your events easily, with everything at the same place: housing, meetings, team-building, etc. Greyhound racing, horse racing, hiking, cycling, visiting amazing sites, playing Celtic games, partying in traditional Iris...
