Happy Easter

Image from

Today is Easter Sunday. It is the day that we Christians believe that Jesus resurrected from the dead.  Jesus died for our sins on Good Friday and was resurrected on Easter Sunday. 

Whether or not you believe that, or whether you just use Easter as an excuse to over indulge on chocolate, I still wish you a Happy Easter.

There are plenty of sites out there with the Easter story so I will not go into here.  If you are interested in knowing more about Easter you can google it.  If you are not familiar with Easter traditions then please do google it and enjoy reading about the many ways Easter is celebrated around the world (as well as the original story). 

I come from a Portuguese tradition and my husband from an Italian tradition. Being Canadians now, we bring a bit of both cultures, plus incorporate the tradition of hidden eggs for the boy.  Mostly it is about food. We enjoy edible treats from both Portuguese and Italian traditions as well as chocolate.  

Later I will roast a chicken (sometimes turkey) and have stuffing, potatoes, and other yummy treats. This year I did not get a pumpkin pie (or make one). I am trying to cut back on all the sweets. 

It is a quiet day, watching religious programming on the television, and enjoying each other's company.
