Beauty of the Easter time:-)*

Happy Easter
Hello,all my wonderful friends:-)*
It is now beautiful Easter time again...
Many charming,fresh and sweetnest spring ideas in the year!
Such a lovely,enchanted time,enjoy it!


The decorated egg predates Christianity. Ancient Egyptians often dyed eggs in spring colours to give as gifts to their friends. Hollow candy eggs containing tiny scenes were popular gifts in England in the 1800s.


Eggs still play an important part in Easter celebrations. In Italy, families collect eggs to make into centrepieces for their Easter tables. In the United States, children paint faces on their eggs and top them with shredded paper for hair, and hats.


Germans colour eggs green on Maundy (Green) Thursday and carry the eggs with them all day for good luck.



Easter celebrations are by far the most important of any in Russia. In 1884 Tsar Alexander III had Carl Faberge, the court jeweller, make a special egg for the tsarina. This white enamelled egg opened to display a yolk in the form of a golden hen with ruby eyes. It became a tradition with the royal family and the court to exchange jewelled eggs.


In the Ukraine, natural eggs were decorated by folk artists with designs so intricate they looked like miniature mosaics. Egg artistry still goes on before Easter - children colour eggs with conventional water-colour or oil-based paints in simple graphics that are reminiscent of the Ukraine artists' work.


Have fun this Easter making your own decorated eggs for gifts.

Violetta,

It was so fascinating to read about the Easter egg...I had no idea that it was so popular all over the world. How amazing that in the Ukraine the designs are so intricate they look like miniature mosaics! Such an art to this beautiful tradition. Also Easter is my favourite holiday! Such a beautiful day... and how lovely the flowers and Springtime!

Wishing you a spectacular Monday sweet friend!

Hi Violetta,

You are having computer trouble as well! So have I. It seems to get better though... I enjoyed reading your story about Easter traditions. So different, but on the other hand so alike in all countries.

Ah you have been to Bergen..It's a great place indeed. Lovely houses, beautiful surroundings and nice shops!

Happy evening!

Lieve groet, Madelief
