Easter Celebrations...................

Easter for me and my family is a very important part of our faith....We tend to spend it with family,attending Church Services..and celebrating New Life.....It it is a time to celebrate...after 40days of lent ...starting with the Passion of Christ and the Resurrection on Easter Sunday...it is a journey which we celebrate New Life...Hope.....

Personally originally I was born in Malta...these are some of Easter Activities that happen in Malta if one is interested to read about...here Apart from Church services..parades in the street take place as well....The Good Friday is very symbolic and very colorful

As a symbol of this in my country where I was born we create These Easter Biscuits. in the shape of some form of new life....being a bird, rabbit, heart,butterfly etc....if you are interested in the recipe and how to do them....here is your chance...

On Easter day as kids we used to be given one of these each. In the village a parade in the streets takes place and we used to go where the parade is being held so our Easter Biscuit will be blessed and then we go home and eat it...I can assure you it did not last very long........

Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to take my children during the Easter Period...it would have been an experience for them..
