Easter

When I was small, my favorite holiday was Christmas. Since becoming an adult 🙂 my favorite holiday has been easter. I love spring, and how Nature blooms and the weather gets warmer.

Some of our Easter decorations:

This year my niece was/is visiting from the US, so we had 3 kids fro the egg hunt:

In Hungary, the day following Easter is called Locsoló Hétfő, “Watering Monday“. Men usually visit families with girls and women. Water, perfume is sprinkled on the women and girls of the house by the visiting men, who are given in exchange an Easter egg.

Blackberry #1 watering his cousin 🙂 The men always say a lovely poem first. They usually water on the hair, but you can always ask to get watered on your wrist, because imagine how stinky one’s hair will be by the end of the day, after being watered by all those different perfumes:)

And this is what “watering” used to look like in the olden days 🙂 They used big buckets of cold water 😦
