2. A tradition started in Germany was the boiling and painting of eggs which were then used to decorate bushes and trees to represent the “Easter Tree.” The boiled and painted eggs represented new life, sunlight and growth for the oncoming spring.

Easter in Sweden

Foods, Traditions and Witches!

In Sweden they celebrate Easter but not really to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, instead Easter is all about twigs, feathers, egg hunts, fish and witches!

Traditionally Easter in Sweden lasts from the Thursday until the Monday or Easter Monday as is commonly called. They celebrate like they do at Christmas although they don’t dress up a tree. Instead they get birch twigs and decorate them with multi coloured feathers and brightly painted eggs which they have boiled first. But in ages gone by they celebrated with other traditions too.

Every chapter is meticulously researched and written and highlights some interesting facts about Easter, and the recipes are second to none!

Easter in Germany

A country of many different traditions and cultures, Germany celebrates Easter in the same way most Christian countries do and that includes eating lamb, something the Germans don’t eat until Easter. They also have a big way with other special foods, cakes and eggs. And talking of eggs, did you know that the Easter bunny came from the Germans?

But what other traditions do the Germans have today and are any of them from days gone by?

Well the season of goodwill is almost over for another year and I must admit this has been one of the best ever for me. I celebrated Christmas in Germany with my girlfriend and her family and everything was perfect, well almost. Ham and potato balls (knödel) for dinner (lunch) with lots of mustard, and all washed down with Sekt, which I believe is German Champagne.
Then yesterday it was my birthday, 21 again!! My beautiful girlfriend gave me a wonderful present of a bottle of Cuban Rum which is 28 years old! I haven’t opened it yet, I intend to open it when there is some special occasion, like my wedding.

The weather has been funny to. We got here to find snow everywhere and coldness, now it’s raining and warm! Talk about global warming. This part of Germany should be under mounds of snow and minus 30 temeratures, not rain and warm.
I love Christmas in Germany, lots of Christmas Markets all selling anything including homemade decorations,
