Happy Easter...

Wishing you all a Happy Easter weekend!!!

I'm sure some of you are thinking "isn't she one day ahead?" Maybe. I guess. It depends. We have decided to go with the Swedish Easter traditions (as far as you can call it Easter traditions as we're not religious and all we do is Easter eggs LOL!). The big Easter day in Sweden is the Easter Saturday (also known as PĂ„skafton = Easter Eve). I know here in the UK it's Sunday that is the big day and the day for Easter eggs...

And talking about Easter eggs. They differ between Sweden and the UK too. In Sweden you typically have these cute cardboard eggs (with bunnies, chicks etc on them) filled with lots of yummy candy and chocolate:

...but in the UK all Easter eggs seem to be hollow chocolate eggs (see pic below). In fact the one below is the one waiting for me in the living room right now. And you know what? We're going by the Swedish Easter traditions. Which means: eggs on Saturday. Which means? I can have mine now!! Yum!!! LOL!

My mom was born in England, they came here (us) in the late 50's. When my grandma would go visit her family, she'd bring us back those hollow eggs with candy in them. Love them so much!

Happy Easter!

I have one of those eggs that my Mom got in Germany back in 1960! It has always been my favourite.
