Good question from Pink for Days! Bunny 🐰 hop to her post to answer the Easter 🐣 🐰 💐 questions:
My answers were as follows:
1. Do you celebrate Easter?
Yes. I have written Eastermass posts all week.
2. Did you give something up for Lent?
No. But I observed lent by writing daily prompts to raise awareness of dementia. Last year I wrote prompts about homelessness.
3. Where and how do you spend Easter Sunday?
Easter is great because 4 days. Often that means I get a couple of days at my home in Sheffield and a couple of days at my other home with parents. I was in Berlin for Easter two years ago. But this Easter I spent Good Friday and Saturday in Sheffield. Then this morning got the train to Scunthorpe to get to parents.
4. What are your traditions? Your family’s?
Fish on Good Friday.
Hot cross buns.
Last year, I made Simnel Cake. Yesterday I made Simnel buns and Rocky Road, I published a post about that yesterday.
Sunday have a Sunday roast; looking forward to that later 🙂
In UK football matches are played on Good Friday and Easter Monday. I will therefore often get to go to a match over Easter weekend. I’m watching Scunthorpe at home tomorrow.
5. What’s your favorite thing about Easter?
Four days off and getting to spend time in both of my homes including family time. Sunday roast and football are plus points. I’m hoping my Mum has bought me chocolate but, if she has I do not know where she has hidden it. Hopefully she will have some, somewhere that she will get out when my siblings arrive.
My Easter has not involved church for a long time. But I’am Godmother to my nephew and niece so, last Sunday on Palm Sunday, I did refresh my memory of Palm Sunday and write a post about that.
