FUN MONDAY - Easter Baskets
Jeanna at Wisconsin Candy Dish proposed the topic "Easter Baskets": Share a story, is it better to give or to receive, what would you like in yours?
As far as I know we don't get any gifts at easter. Not in Belgium, not in Germany and not in Italy.
Children usually get an empty basket and have to search for easter eggs, real once in all colors or out of chocolate and little or big chocolate easter bunnies. If they have a garden and it is not raining they do their researches outside. Otherwise it's inside the house.
When I was a child my grandma used to tint the eggs herself in all colors, red, blue, green, yellow and my Grandpa would hide them in the garden but so nicely that sometimes one year later we still found eggs from the year before.
I did the same when our son was little and we colored the eggs together. Today I do easter decoration maybe a little different than the one you see above which I did last year. I haven't done any easter decoration yet because it is a little too early. Maybe next week.
