Happy Easter

Easter Eggs

This is what happens when you have small children – you dye your kitchen.

Yes, the festival of Easter, goddess of the Spring, is celebrated this time of year with the traditional symbols of fertility, the egg and the rabbit, by the people who settled around the Baltic Sea – the Teutons, Slavs, Finns, Prussians, Letts, et al. It is a festival of plenty after the hardships of winter, with the promise of new growth.

Of course, later groups took the celebration and turned it to other purposes, but I doubt Easter minds.

Like last year, I celebrated by buying stuff to rehab an apartment. People tend to move around holidays.

and happy april fools day to you too!

it doesn’t take small children to dye my house, I can do that all on my own, without even any help from the cats.

there were several sets of grandkids visiting several sets of grandparents in my neighborhood today. so I got to watch a lot of easter egg hunts from the sidelines. I kind of like it this way.

Thank you, BT, and a Happy Egypt Exit Visa to my Jewish friends.

Yes, Hipparchia, other peoples’ small children are the very best kind.
