Although 10 days have passed since Easter, the candy is gone and “life goes on” in the fast lane, the reason for Easter-the joy, the surprise, the hope for a bright future forever–do not fade.
We had a delightful spring day in China, playing “Resurrection Eggs” with the kids and then having an egg hunt in our friends’ yard area outside their first floor apartment.
They don’t actually have a back door, but a ladder on the outside and the inside make it a convenient access to their sandpile and budding garden.
The local grannies all took great interest in the unusual activities happening around them as well.
Easter is not recognized as a holiday, nor celebrated in this country.
Most people have never heard of it when we talk about it, but often are interested in finding out more.
