Easter is here.
The sun did show for a short while this morning but the clouds became thicker and then the wind came. Still it was a rather nice day anyway even if the nap became an hour longer than I had thought 🙂
Today is Long Friday a day I remember as rather boring. Not that my mother cared about any religious meaning to this day and pretty much let us have a normal day like all other. But still, this was a day that nothing really happened. If Easter came late we most likely went to our summer cottage over the weekend if it came early we most likely went to my mormor (grandmother on my mother’s side) for easter dinner with the rest of the family.
I’ve always wondered why everyone came to those dinners since most in my family dislikes everyone else 🙂 🙂 🙂 I guess that was one of the few demands my mormor actually had, family dinner every big holiday except for Midsummer (probably our biggest holiday of the year). But thinking back I think we still spent most midsummer’s at mormors place.
Tomorrow I’ll tell You all a little about how many celebrates Easter over here, for us it really starts on Thursday because that’s when the witches (we call them Easter Hags 🙂 )fly to Blåkulla to have a sabbath with the devil. The whitch is one of our most important Easter symbols, are we pagan or are we 🙂
