We had a nice day around the house yesterday. Nadia and I took the opportunity to do some serious spring cleaning. I stored away all of the winter clothes and organized our basement storage boxes. With a family of five, we have a lot of stuff! We also sorted through drawers, shelves, etc. It is amazing the amount of stuff that piles up during a school year. Nadia did a thorough cleaning of the house.
As you can see from the video above, the kids enjoyed the easter egg hunt. We are not religious but still celebrate the holidays all the same. I started telling the story of the crucifixion of Jesus, but need to re-look at the Biblical accounts to give a proper bedtime story to the kids. We also listened to the storynory.com origin of Easter eggs and the Saxon pagan beliefs where the holiday originates.
The weather continues to be perfect, cool temperatures and blue skies. The neighbors brought colored eggs to our children. Eastern Europeans are really into decorative eggs, which I’ll blog about more later.
As with Christmas, the Serbs exchange phrases when greeting each other on Easter.
хпистос васкрсе (Hristos vaskrse) – Christ resurrected
Ваистину васкрсе (Vaistina vaskrse) – Yes, he truly resurrected (response)
