Happy Easter to you too Colleen. I am curious to know if Australians really associate Easter with daffs though, as it is Autumn for you?
Cindy – no single clothing item of OH’s has yet been outed let alone 2..I’ll try again tomorrow.
I’ve been sorting my own ‘summer wardrobe’ now that we’ve had a week of sunshine here in the UK. Another 10 items of mine bagged to leave the house. I have 21 outer garments for my summer wardrobe and I just need one more to complete my wardrobe and I’m sorted.
The clogs that were accepted for sale by a quality seconds clothes shop earnt me Â£12 this week :O)

you know I am not sure if daffodils are considered an Easter thing here but then again we have the Santa at Christmas in the middle of summer when he ought to be wearing board shorts (surf shorts) and a pair of thongs (flipflops). Easter I suppose is still about new life so it stands to reason we do the bunnies and eggs so why not the flowers. I really just associate it with the bunnies and the eggs though (aside from the religious theme which is really what it is all about). This year we didn’t even do any of that we went to Sydney to be involved in the ANZAC remembrance.

we didn’t buy any eggs this year so we won’t have any trouble decluttering them.

You didn’t buy any eggs? Now that’s just taking decluttering too far Colleen!

we treated our kids to a night in Sydney so we could all go to the ANZAC day parade and watch their dad march. We had a wonderful time!

Nothing is impossible AndrÃ©ia, you should know that.

Happy Easter; may you get all the discount Easter candy you like (and save your kids’ Easter baskets to use next year!)
By the way, I noticed the site name the image came from (free-christian-wallpapers.blogspot.com). I’ve always wondered what Easter eggs and bunnies had to do with the Christian version of Easter … ?
Ah well….it’s a cute image anyway. 🙂 Happy Easter!

thank you for the wishes and the same goes out to you!
There would be no Easter eggs and bunnies if it weren’t for the Christian version of Easter because that is the only version there is. Like Christmas it is a religious holiday (Holy Day) first and foremost. The resurrection of Christ at Easter is New Life which is where the symbolism of eggs,bunnies and spring comes in. Eggs = New Life, Bunnies = prolific breeders, Spring = New life. I have to wonder if one day the the commercial versions of these to holidays are going to swallow up their religious significance all together.

Happy Eastern! Yes, a bit late, but I can still wish it for the next hour. Then, it is over 🙂
My eastern tradition is that the second day (yes, we have two (!) holidays here – lucky me!) I shoot a king-emperor match, which is traditional for my archeryclub. After the match we always eat eggs which the club shot the week before at another guild. I love the tradition, this was the second year I did it!
