But there's actually a lot more to being a valiant knight who can save the day against the bleakest of odds, which your kid may being preparing for as we speak. Perhaps you've noticed your wee-knight training for a life of excitement and honor (possibly with the family dog acting as their squire) in the backyard.

California Costume Collection Child Hercules Costume - Kids Roman Warrior Costumes
RM 122.60
HalloweenCostumes

When we think of heroes, a number of names come rushing to the mind, but only a few of them have been spoken of in as many incarnations as the mighty half-god of Greek mythology, Hercules! Whether he’s an animated youngster eager to prove himself to his fuzzy mentor or a long-haired and suave friend-to-all on a legendary adventure, the guy has it all! Strength, a winning smile, notorious combat proficiencies, and… did we mention half-god? Hard to compete with that one!Sure, several of the ancient tales of Hercules don’t have the best of beginnings… or endings, honestly, but you have to give credit to a guy who can keep his chin up despite having a rather grumpy step-mother and uncle full of underworld angst. Between tackling ferocious monsters birthed from Echidna and winning the heart of a few Grecian lasses, Hercules has countless tales to be told.And, this year, the stories can continue when you don your kiddo in this Child Hercules costume. A comfortable white pullover tunic starts the look and you can armor your child up, next, with the foam body armor and attached cape. You won’t have to spend all day gearing your kid up, either, thanks to an easy fabric tie in the back of the armor. (Now, why didn’t the ancient Greeks think of that!?) Warrior-like armbands and leg guards close with Velcro and ensure that your child will be protected from all manner of monsters, but it might be a good idea to pick up a nice sword and lion-emblazoned shield just to make the beasties think twice about trying your demigod! The only question that remains is to figure out which of the kiddo’s parents is the god!

Five Reasons Why Everyone Should Read History Books

History books are accounts of past happenings that occurred throughout human civilization which might have direct and indirect impact on how we live today. Living in this time of rapid change and constant technological development, many individuals today might find that history is no longer significant as we prefer to envision on where we are heading towards instead of reflecting on where we came from. However, there are still important values that we can learn from the history of mankind as we look forward into the future. Find out why everyone should still read history books below.

As Highly Detailed Accounts of Past Events

History books are one of the most important sources of information that we have regarding past events and occurrences. They give a highly-detailed account on a given event or period in history: more so than any documentary can give. Many present archaeologists and researchers are able to unravel important findings and ancient wonders today thanks to the thorough descriptions that were mentioned in these history books.

To Know More About Our Origins

Have you ever wondered why Malaysia has a multi-racial population today? Through history books, you will have a better insight on why people of different races, religions, and culture settled down in Malaysia. You will also find out other interesting facts such as what methods did they use to enter the country with and how did they made a living for themselves in a foreign land so far away from their motherland. Knowing these facts not only widens your general knowledge, but it also enables you to trace back your origins.

So That We Do Not Repeat Past Mistakes

Spanish philosopher, George Santayana once said, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. Throughout human history, countless mistakes were made by our forefathers and past leaders, many of which we can learn something from. Delving into history enables us to understand their failings, to learn from them, and to find ways to improve on their mistakes. Humans have a bad habit of making the same mistakes, hence history books serve as a reminder for us to not repeat similar mistakes again.

So That We Appreciate the Sacrifices of our Forefathers and Ancestors

Many lives were sacrificed throughout the countless wars and battles fought throughout human history. Many of our forefathers and ancestors probably had a part to play in those wars – expanding the glory and influence of their nation, defending their homeland from being conquered by foreign authorities, and so on. Their sacrifices are recorded in history books and by reading them, we will understand more about their valiant efforts and bravery which will allow us to appreciate the sacrifices they had made.

As Preparation for the Future

Although many might argue that what happened in the past will not be relevant today, there are many lessons that we can obtain from the past to make us more well-prepared for the future. For example, when making new policies and decisions, governments often look at a similar situation that occurred in the past to determine its feasibility in the future.
