Eastertime in Germany and everywhere ;) *_*

Haaaaappy Springtime everyooone :) *_*

Actually the weather this weekend shouldn´t even be that nice, but in the last week it just was so much like spring and all the nature seems to come back to life again ;) Ahh i absolutely love this so much ;) also the days are getting longer and brighter again which really boosts my mood up ;) So far so gooood, what´s on right now? 

-> The answer is: Easter is just around the corner and today we have the "Karfreitag" (Good Friday in english i think:D) But i recently asked myself, is easter really celebrated 
everywhere in the world? Because it actually just is a christian holiday, or am i wrong
? ;) 


Selfmaaade ;) 
So i used my good old friend Google for help :DDD and so i came up to the funniest easter traditions :D because whereas here in Germany it is totally common and normal that the easter bunny brings us eggs in a easter basket, this is seen in other countries as absolutely crazy and confusing ;) because what has a rabbit to do with eggs?? :) especially if they are coloured or out of chocolate? :S SO you see here in Germany the kids get cute little baskets on easter day which are said to be delivered from the easter bunny itself and being hidden in the garden for the kids to search them ;) but not also those baskets are prepared for easter in Germany, each family creates and decorates a braided basket with a self-baked cake-lamb, some (maybe self-colored easter eggs-> haha i also coloured a few yesterday), a loaf of bread, some salt, and an easter candle for letting them consecrate in church on easter day ;) I think this is a really typical tradition here in Germany :) also the houses are decorated with many cute little easter eggs, hens, chickens, rabbits, spring flowers :) 

Time for my belooooved cat ;) BOBBEL B :) 

But some other very funny traditions i read about was the herring funeral in Ireland or the water shower in poland ;) i even don´t know if they are really common, but it was so funny to read about those as well ;) So on Good Friday today we do not eat any meat ;) so there is fish for lunch, but many people also go the traditional Kässpätzle essen ;) 
Sooo but now enough theory about all those festivities, now you know how to celebrate it, so lets do it hahaa just joking ;) I wish everyone of you a wonderful, relaxed, less troubled easter weekend and a lot of free time for your beloved ones ;) xxxxxx
