Easter’s a bit weird isn’t it? Not from a religious point of view- I understand the religious meaning behind it- but all of the secular traditions that have come about because of it make zero sense to me. I mean, who decided that telling children that there’s a giant rabbit who goes to everyone’s houses in the middle of the night delivering chocolate eggs was a good idea? What does it even mean?! If anyone does know where this tradition comes from, please leave a comment!
Anyway, this year I’m not doing the whole Easter egg thing because of the trying to give up dairy thing I’m doing, and because I think it’s strange (although if I do get any eggs I’ll have to eat them because it’d be rude not to really!). I know that my grandma has bought me a blender as an Easter present which I’m very excited about. Smoothies anyone? Side note: does this mean I’m getting old because I’m more excited about smoothies than chocolate? Ahhh.
My family is still sticking with the tradition of getting together for lunch as we’re spending the day at my grandparents. We might have a roast, might not; it’ll be a surprise! I’ve also been really ill these last few days so it’ll (unfortunately) be a quiet Sunday night and bank holiday for me. I suppose, in a way, that’s a good thing as it’ll give me a chance to relax for another couple of days before cracking on with some serious revision for my last ever uni exams(!).
Has anyone got any exciting plans for the holiday? Also, has anyone found out where the Easter bunny comes from yet?
P.s I just want to share this cute little card I got through the door just after I’d finished writing this post. It’s from my two little half-sisters (who I’m meeting for the first time next month, but that story’s a completely separate post, or two, of its own!).
