Dear Family & Friends
It's that time of the year once again...in Bulgaria we just had our easter holiday last weekend. Yes, it's a week later than most other countries in the world.
|we each got these beautifully decorated eggs...silk cloth imprint|
No egg chocolates here...but people give out decorated boiled eggs to children as tradition. It's fascinating to see the many different ways of imprinted decor on boiled eggs...with dyes, stickers, pasted paper, and we even got some silk cloth design imprint on some of them.
|A short and polite visit to our neighbours' home|
In our village, most homes celebrate with food and drinks. It's the time when families take time to gather together. We don't have families here besides ourselves...but our neighbours never fail to call us over. There's always the decorated boiled eggs which is given to each person and you choose a partner to hit/knock the egg with...one ends with a cracked egg of course!

Easter traditional celebration are getting more commercialized and a mere occasion to 'party' excuse. As for me, easter reminds me of new life and God's goodness as I see new buds sprouting from trees in our garden at this time.
Wishing you lots of blessings for this year.
