Happy Easter

I’m not sure whether I am going to have a chance to post for a few days, so I wanted to say Happy Easter to you. I’m not really big on major holidays I used to do with my family in the USA.

Easter in Australia is a huge thing and we get a full 4 days for Easter. Unfortunately, that means a lot of places are closed for the whole 4 days. Grocery stores are closed today (Good Friday) and everything goes at a snail’s pace.

What’s funny is that my immediate family never did the whole hiding egg thing for my sister and me. We’d usually do that over my grandmother’s house.¬†Easter morning was like Santa Clause Lite. That’s when I’d usually get Nintendo games and a TON of chocolate (something I can’t do anymore).

We’d hunt either plastic hollow eggs or boiled eggs. I don’t really remember anything being in the hollow eggs (mostly because I didn’t really care) but as I got older, I started stuffing them full of candy, cat food, and other gross stuff.

Here in Australia, the kids hunt chocolate eggs (like what’s in the picture). I never really saw that as a good thing. I’m not entirely sure why. I think mostly I’d be a little grossed out with all the bugs crawling all over them. Go figure…

Anyway, may your zombie Jesus day be fun and exciting! I need to get dressed and head to the city soon. Have a great weekend.
