Ollie and Ocean with the Čuvarkuća

 

 


A shopkeeper at the paint store gave Oliver a Serbian Easter egg! It is one of the Serbian Easter traditions and I love following the local customs. It is one of the nice things about living in other countries. The Serbs keep one of the Easter eggs, called the čuvarkuća in their homes for the entire year until next Easter. It is supposed to protect the home. The translation is čuvar means guard/watchman/keeper and kuća means home. 

Ollie carefully handed it to me and we put it on a shelf in the kitchen. We’ll see if it makes it the entire year.
