Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote her first novel in 1905. Her story about the adventures of a red-headed girl, Anne of Green Gables, in Prince Edward Island became a hit. At first, it was rejected by every publishing house that received it, but some years later, Montgomery tried shopping it again and succeeded. It became one of Canada’s most all-time popular books. It has been translated into around 20 languages and more than 50 million copies to date have been sold. During her lifetime, Montgomery published over 500 short stories, 20 novels, 30 essays, a book of poetry and an autobiography.
Montgomery is one of Canada’s most celebrated writers. She also wrote hundreds of poems and short stories as well as a number of novels apart from the Anne series. She was the first Canadian woman to be made a member of the British Royal Society of Arts and was also appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
L.M. Montgomery was born in Clifton (now New London), Prince Edward Island, on November 30, 1874, to Hugh John Montgomery and Clara Woolner Macneill. When Maud Montgomery was 21 months old, her mother died of tuberculosis. Her father left her in the care of her mother’s parents. As an only child living with an elderly couple, Montgomery found companionship in her imagination, nature, books, and especially writing.
She studied for a teacher’s license at Prince of Wales College. She completed the two-year course in one year and she was graduated with honours. She became a teacher, but it was a short career. Montgomery taught at three Island schools: Bideford, Belmont, and Lower Bedeque respectively. She left teaching for one year to study selected courses in English literature becoming one of the few women of her time to seek higher education. It was at that time that she received the first payments for her writing.
In 1911, Montgomery married the Reverend Ewan Macdonald who was minister in the Presbyterian church. She bore three sons: Chester (1912), Hugh (stillborn in 1914), and Stuart (1915). She assisted her husband in his pastoral duties and ran their home. She continued writing novels, short stories and poems. Her

Halloween, or Hallowe’en is a contraction of All Hallows’ Evening. It´s a celebration observed in a lot of countries on 31 October. This eve is the Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day, dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful who departed.
It is believed that many Halloween traditions were originated from the ancient Celtic and Gaelic harvest festivals. Those traditions were Christianized by the Church.

Costa Rican 1987an Emakumeen eta Osasunaren Nazioarteko V. Topagunea burutu zen. Topagune hori maiatzaren 28an ospatzen den Emakumeen Osasunaren aldeko Nazioarteko Ekintza-Egunaren abiapuntuntzat hartzen da.
Ordutik hona emakumeen osasunerako eskubidea aldarrikatzeko ospatzen da eguna, eskubide hori giza eskubide baita, eta dudarik gabe, emakumeek euren bizitzako ziklo guztian izan behar duten eskubidea da, murrizpenik eta bazterkeriarik gabe.
Iazko sarreran aipatu genuen gaixotasun kardiobaskularrean gizonei eta emakumei agertzen zaizkien sintomak ez direla berdinak. Gizonezkoenak ezagunak dira, baina emakumezkoenak ez dira horren ezagunak. Lan handia egin behar dugu benetako berdintasuna lortzeko.
Interesgarriak dira hainbat erakundek antolatzen dituzten ekintza bereziak maiatzaren 28rako:
