I’ve been getting the house ready for Easter this week.
Easter is a big deal for us. We’re Christians, so really, it’s the biggest, most important festival of our faith, more so than Christmas. We had Palm Crosses at church on Sunday (Palm Sunday is the day we celebrate Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey and being recognised by the people as the Son of God). So I incorporated mine into this flat lay.
I do love the New Life aspect of Easter: after all, we believe Jesus gives us a new life when we are born again. So I’m also celebrating the signs of Spring, with eggs, lambs and chicks. The tulips are just beautiful this year.
I did get a little scatter-happy! And then I got the glue-gun out and made an Easter wreath. We’ve also made our Easter tree, and crafted Ben’s Easter hat for the parade tomorrow (it involves Lego). So there has been a fair bit of crafting going on. We’ll also be making Easter biscuits and some kind of chocolate-mini-egg extravagansa for a cake.
I know for most people Easter is about chocolate and the Easter bunny. I know there are whole discussions about how it was originally a pagan festival. But this is when we celebrate Jesus death and resurrection, and for me, that’s much more important than chocolate.
