St Patrick’s Day is just 2 weeks away and Irish all over the world are eagerly waiting for it! They’ll start on Thursday 15 and end on Monday 19 – 5 days of festivals, music, dancing, drinking, street theatres…in other words – doing what real Irish like most!
I live in Ireland myself and although I’m not an Irish, I am thrilled my emotions emanating from people here – they’re so full of life!
And sure – there are belly button rings for those who want to embellish their navels accordingly going out on Paddy’s day. You can choose from simple belly rings to so called Claddagh rings – they’re really nice. Click on the pictures, and you’ll see more of them.
So – the word “navel” – where it comes from? Old Norse called it “nafli”. Common Germanic equivalent is “nabhalo” (a derivative of “nabho”). Old High German description of belly button was “nabalo”. But our ancestors who spoke Old English called it “nafela” – very similar to today’s “navel”.
The second word – “umbilicus” comes from Latin. The Romans called it so and it has been adapted into English from the times when UK was a part of the Roman Empire which comprised nearly the whole known world back then!
is a page where you can read about the most common myths about belly button rings. Much of what we read or listen to is just a fad, and belly button piercing isn’t an exemption.
For instance, we all have an impression that oriental belly dancers should have a belly piercing…
#1 this month has been the Mood Belly Button Ring. This piercing’s dangling gem changes its color depending on temperature. Even slight changes will do!
I remember myself having rings with such gems – they changed color seemingly without any reason at all and one starts to wonder if they really can guess your mood…
The Lizard is another from the top sellers. I like the way it looks – as if the lizard has thrust through the belly button – nice indeed!
The previous belly rings were the best sellers from the new arrivals. Cherry Belly Ring, however, has still managed to keep its leader position and be the best sold belly ring at Body Candy
