I hope every one is having a wonderful day of celebration.
Last night many of my German neighbors celebrated Easter Saturday with a traditional Easter bonfire. My husband and I rode back from the grocery store our street was filled with smoke, my first thought was someone's house was on fire and I hope it isn't ours. The air was thick with smoke and smells of fires. Traditionally they have the fires to welcome Spring and sun, often using the wood from their Christmas tree. It is said the bigger the flame reaches the more fruitful the fields will be and the healthier the family will be. But really in todays time it's just an excuse to gather with friends and enjoy some good beer. This morning the air was still thick with the smell of smoke, I think everyone in my neighbor is celebrating the end to a long winter.
Our neighbors invited us to there bonfire but we just returned yesterday from Spring break and we are suffering jet lag something awful. But it is worth it the Easter bunny brought back Peeps and other yummy american candies from her trip and that was my breakfast of the champions!
Happy Easter/ Frohe Ostern!
