Global Smurfs Day.

By Kathleen Miller

The world is about to get a whole lot smurfier. Ambassadors from 28 countries are painting the town blue today as they kick off the second-annual Global Smurfs Day by spreading that irrepressible smurfy cheer through the streets of Paris.

The celebration honors Smurfs creator Pierre “Peyo” Culliford’s June 25 birthday and the opening of ‘The Smurfs 2’ on July 31. Culliford’s daughter, Veronique, presided over a ceremony in her father’s hometown of Belgium at the site of a giant Smurf statue. She officially appointed more than 40 Smurfs ambassadors who then boarded a train to Paris, where the movie is set, where they spread smiles and heralded the movie’s opening.

Events are taking place around the world, and in Los Angeles, families can join Smurfs at local appearances where they will play the Ubisoft video game, and sample Menchie’s Smurfberry frozen yogurt, among other activities. Families are encouraged to enjoy nature by the U.S. Forest Service and Ad Council’s Discover the Forest campaign, and can watch the first “The Smurfs” film at an outdoor evening screening.   read more

Where to Celebrate Memorial Day 2013 in Boston

American flags

Boston is hosting several Memorial Day observances throughout Memorial Day weekend.

Events start on Thursday, May 23 with a service on Boston Common. The Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to the families of military service personnel from Massachusetts who have died while in service to the United States, will host a service at 10:30 a.m. at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument.

The event will include the reading of the names of Bay State soldiers killed as a result of current military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan among a flag garden with thousands of miniature American flags honoring the sacrifices of all fallen Massachusetts service men and women.

On Sunday, May 26, a Memorial Day ceremony will be held at Mount Hope Cemetery (355 Walk Hill St.) in Mattapan from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will include a short parade from inside the cemetery gate up to the World War I and World War II Monument where the ceremony will be held. read more

South Enders Celebrate Marriage Equality Anniversary at Public Garden

Ellen Wade of Newton speaks at Thursday's celebration of marriage equality in Massachusetts at the Public Garden Thursday.

Dozens of local gay and lesbian couples gathered at the Boston Public Garden Thursday to celebrate the 9th anniversary of the law that gave them the right to marry in Massachusetts.

The celebration, put on in partnership between Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), the Respect for Marriage Coalition and Mayor Thomas Menino, ended with a group photo at a location popular for wedding photography.

Michael Kelley and Ricardo Rodriguez of the South End were on hand Thursday. Kelley said that before marriage equality was in place, people referred to himself and Rodriguez as “friends, boyfriends, that friend, partner,” but that all changed when they were wed.

“That is exactly the power of marriage,” Kelley said.

“It’s been an extraordinary five years,” said Ellen Wade of Newton, who along with her wife, Maureen Brodoff, were one of the plaintiffs in the landmark case they won in 2003 that led to the adoption of marriage equality in the state. read more
