It’s one of my favourite holidays of the year. It’s Easter! And in my family we do all those traditional things that I look forward to and have been doing year after year. The morning starts with Mass after which comes the milling around the church compound greeting everyone with Easter day goodness. We all head home where we crank out the elaborate breakfast and the house is full of relatives and loved ones talking and eating. I love this day also because of it’s special preparations – The Eggs! I cannot imagine anyone who hasn’t had a fun time making little easter eggs. When I was a kid, my mom, my sister and me would read through our Childcraft books and spend the day boiling, painting and cutting up paper ears and whiskers to convert eggs into silly bunny faces. Then there’s the chocolate. People coming over to our house would, to my immense pleasure, bring chocolate eggs and I used to sit and count how many and how big each one was.
Easter is a lot of fun. It’s a Sunday which is always a good day to get together and celebrate. So, on behalf of Design/6 I wish each and everyone of you a Happy Easter. Paint an egg, eat some chocolate and draw bunny faces on your friends (that one I just made up, ’tis not an Easter tradition :P) And hope you all have a wonderful day!
