I love Easter time!
But recently I have found myself a little tired of all the plastic decorations, confectioneries, artificial colors and commercialism that surround this bright holiday. While I was looking for ''earthy inspirations", I was pleasantly surprised to see something that my grandma has been doing since I remember her (she is 84 now) featured in the April issue of Country Living Magazine. Every Easter my beloved granny uses blossom gathered from her garden, yellow onion skins, and pieces of pantyhose to dye eggs for Easter.
So this year my son and I decided to come back to this fun old-fashion way of all natural egg coloring.
The eggs turned out great as we had a lot of fun.
"Keep things simple", I would always hear my mother say, especially the time when we celebrate the sacrifice of the most humble man, who gave us the gift of eternal life, forgiveness and salvation.
I want my son to think of Easter as a celebration of Life;
Life that is all about giving and helping others.
To me, Easter has always meant the story of the death and the resurrection of Christ.
Easter has always been the time when families and friends gather together and just enjoy simple things in life.
Easter is Hope and Love.
Easter is a time for reflection and JOY.
May the Joy of Easter fill up your heart !
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY !
