Day 63 – Easter Sunday

Today didn’t feel like an Easter Sunday for some reason, Even though I went to mass (though perhaps distracted by the screaming children of two different families that started a big fight during the ‘peace be with you’ part) and ate an Easter egg (Lindt one, lovely, now I need a post-Easter Lent), it just felt different.

I guess Easter is all about renewal, rebirth, the beginning of Spring, except I was feeling tired and stressed, plus it was raining and actually autumn. No flowery dresses, daffodils blooming and bunnies running around then, oh wait, where does that actually happen anyway! Then again maybe it’s a timely reminder to remember this feeling because today’s a beginning and sometimes beginnings start close to rock bottom.

I was looking at the reason eggs are given as presents on Easter Sunday and it seems the egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the earth at the beginning of spring, which was then adopted by Christians to represent the resurrection of Jesus. Apparently the early Christians also didn’t eat eggs as well as meat during Lent which was why they used them all up on pancakes on what’s now known as ‘Pancake Tuesday’. Hmmm think I’ll go make some pancakes and omelette and get into the spirit.

Anyway I’ve nearly my blog updated and feeling better already, just to take some better photos now, oh and find out the answer to the big question, which came first, the chicken or the egg?!!

Quote of the day: “Because we have both chickens and eggs, who cares which came first!”
