Happy Easter Everyone!
I decided this Easter will be different, I won’t cook and bake like a crazy and I won’t decorate the whole house. So this Easter is a lazy Easter and I’m completely okay with it!
Usually this time of the year is very similar to Christmas time, cooking, baking, decorating and preparing for days for Easter.
As a child, I liked Easter, I dressed up pretty dresses, painted eggs, helped my mom with the cooking and the baking and I’ve waited for the boys.
Why the change?
It’s a Hungarian tradition, the boys visits the girls, they tell the girls a poem and sprinkled them with perfume. The girls give painted (mainly red) eggs in exchange for the dousing.
It was fun as a kid, but as I grow up I realized it slowly changed into a money and alcohol-centered holiday. As the boys grow up, they rather prefered a “little” pocket-money than a painted egg, the adults just came to drink a coffee and a shot/wine/beer (and they visited us only on Easter….).
And, to tell the truth, when the 5th, 10th boy + it’s dad came and sprinkled us with perfume, it wasn’t fun at all, if you know what I mean….
So no more perfume sprinkling, no more visit only for alcohol, no more money giving, no more over-eating (we had to eat what we cooked and baked…), no more fuss, just relaxing.
How do you spend the Easter Holiday? Do you have traditions, did they changed by the time?
Have a safe and happy holiday!
