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.

I am surrounded by aunts, uncles, grandparents — none of them my own — which means that I actually get to enjoy easter: watching all the kids hunting for easter eggs and never having to buy, dye, or hide nary a one of them. 😈

The main advantage of being childless is that you get to enjoy and spoil kids, and then go home to peace and quiet after you have revved them up on junk food. 😉
