In years gone by because of hardship and having to make the most of what you had on a daily basis, festivals and celebrations such as Christmas and Easter were something to look forward to not because most of all the food shared then was different to ordinary fare more exciting. Ingredients that we take for granted now were very special then and expensive; things like currants and spice. These festivals were something to look forward to, a time for giving thanks and a social occasion with its roots very firmly placed in something very serious. A time for remembering. Something to look forward to and we all need that even now.
A festival that encompasses both Christian and Pagan traditions really the festival of birth/re-birth.
I have been rootling back on some of my past posts and re-share some of them now for you to look at bearing in mind I seem to be somewhat of a compulsive blogger!
I hope you all have a lovely Easter however you may celebrate it after all each of us is very different
