Easter is my very favorite holiday. I do not believe in any God but I totally believe in celebrating spring and new beginnings. The thing about this Easter though... it didn´t feel like Easter at all. For one thing, we brought home little Ludwig, who is so very cute and mischievous and easily scared and all in all just needs a lot of attention. I´ll write more about him soon.
Also, it´s not helping that there´s in fact no spring to celebrate. When the masters of ceremony lit the annual Easter fire, it wouldn´t burn at first. Because that huge, carefully built pile of wood was frozen to the core. Yep. Anyway it did burn in the end and it was a lovely evening. (Here´s last years Easter fire with a bit more of information and pictures. It´s a wonderful tradition.)
In my defense, I did manage to dye eggs (I always use natural dye) and bake some Easter bread! But we kind of ran out of everything else so Easter 2013 was a great success even from the culinary point of view (we had pizza on Sunday, ahem). Oh well. There´s always next year, right?
