Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
Basically, Easter and the Easter celebration are built on and based on old religious scriptures, – long, long time ago. And it’s still a religious celebration in many countries, as in Spain and also on it’s own way in Norway too.
The Easter in Norway have actually more Holydays during the Easter then many other countries, even then the catholic Spain.
I’m actually not sure why it is like that, but in Norway the Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and the second day of Easter are public holidays. That means this days are in general days “off” from most work like public office and stores in general, with some very few exceptions. That means I’m also “off” from work this days, because I’m working for a Norwegian department in the company I’m working for 🌞.
It’s like a mini holiday, and to be honest, I feel I really need that now 🥰. I have been very tired lately, but I think it’s a combination of my age, my children has moved out and also there had been a detail in my working- situation during a period that has felt a bit like mental challenge / strain, but now this is also gone for various reasons. And the lasts week at work has been very busy “on the line” too. So a mini holiday will do well now 😊.
Some traditions, religions as well as cultural traditions, are changing in many countries during this corona- situation.
In Spain there has been different kinds of parades during the Easter as well as different “events” celebrations connected to the catholic Easter. And it’s great parades as well as “events”, but last Easter and this Easter there’s no parades or special public Easter “events”. I don’t know if this will come back when this corona- situation changes, but I hope so 📿.
In Norway many people travels to their cabins, on the mountains or close to the sea, during the Easter. It’s a kind of Easter tradition in Norway. Because it’s like a mini holiday, so people in general can use a bit more time in their cabins and in the nature then during a normal weekend. Last year and this year it has been different “discussions” during the media ( probably not just during the media, but I get the information about Norway during the media- at least most of it), if people should be allowed to travelling to their cabins because of the corona- situation 🏠. I think some will travel to their cabins anyway, but I also think this is a tradition that will continue, after the corona- situation is better, to travel to the cabin in the Easter.
My Easter traditions has in general been relaxing, spending time with my kids, family and friends. Good food and Easter eggs 🐣. We had some various excursions in the nature, or just stayed home. In a way “refill” our batteries in the way that’s “suits” us best. I’m not use to any big religious traditions, not either any “cabin- traditions”. And I haven’t miss it either, because I’m not use to it 📿🏠🐣.
Last Easter I was just home, no visit, no various excursions in nature, but I had “company” with my oldest son and his friend 😊. This because of the curfew and the different restrictions we needed to follow and “live by”.
This year- I’m going to just stay home too. I need to not do to much,- actually just “refill” my batteries, “recharge” my energies. And to be honest,- I’m not sure what kind of restrictions there are during this Easter either here in Spain at the moment. Some weeks ago I know there was some “talk about” closing down the city borders again, but if it is like that? I’m not sure. It’s to many changes in the restrictions, and sometimes a bit to fast too. So it’s not easy to follow up the changes all the time 😅.
I’m going to use this Easter holiday the way I want. Maybe bake something to my children so they can have in their the freezer. I know I’m going to sleep, but also paint and knit. Im going to have some nice walks. Actually,- just use the days I want in my own tempo and to whatever drops into my mind 😊. Days with no expectations from anyone- not my kids, not my friends. Sounds maybe a bit “selfish”,- but I haven’t actually been planning anything with anyone on purpose. I really need this days without to many plans. What’s happen and dropping by during the Easter,- I don’t know, but I know I just take it from there 😊.
Isn’t that a bit like what a holiday is about? Not to many plans, just enjoy the time? 🐣😊
I wish you all a Great Easter, – with or without to many plans, religious or not 🐣📿🏠.
I also wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

I wish you all a Great Easter, – with or without to many plans, religious or not 🐣📿🏠. Enjoy every second of the Easter the way it’s suits you best 🐣. That what’s I’m going to do 😊🐣.
