Back to Easter….Like most things Easter is celebrated differently here. You won’t find eggs being boiled, colored or hunted…or even white for that matter. You won’t find bunnies and baskets…okay you probably could but not as a major Easter theme. No pastel colored candy, plastic eggs or kid’s adorned in new Easter attire. No Springtime (which is most of what the prior all relates to) and NO work on Good Friday or Easter Monday. Fortunately, you will find Christ Risen!
All those things are not typically found in South African households however ALL were found in the Franzen household….with the exception of white eggs.
I’m not ready to let go of familiar Easter traditions especially when someone else is footin' the bill! Every Easter thing was because of someone's graciousness and love.....
all the way down to the shoes....
Easter baskets, their contents (both grannies), candy, plastic eggs and dye
A glorious promise of a Resurrected & Eternal Life
