Beware! Easter eggs are coming

I prepered three super cute Easter designs for you coming up the next three days combined with a lot of information about how we celebrate Easter here.

Easter celebration here with my family somehow starts on Sunday before Easter with going to church on Palm Sunday. We go there with our Palmbuschen which more or less looks like this.

Every family decorates them differently and children sometimes have sweets on them like little brezels. When I was little I was only allowed to eat them after church.

Then we walked home and we had to run around our house three times which should bring luck to the house and the family living in there. It should also bring a good yield in the garden and so on and so on. 

Well then actually nothing happens during the week. At least at my family. We don't eat meat and on Thursday it's time for spinach with potatoes and fried eggs. For those who don't eat spinach they get green vegetable. Some eat fish on Friday but not at our family. We most of the time eat something small like a soup or a salad because on Saturday it's time for a huge huge meal. Sometimes even a couple of times during a day. 

So basically we spend the week at home doing somthing with friends and oh I almost forgot it, we paint eggs. Hard boiled eggs for eating during the weekend. It's also a little gift you give to others when they come to your house or if you visit somebody.

We also bake a sort of cake which is called Reindling. It's sweet and filled with sugar, nuts, raisins, poppy seeds etc. always depending how you like it. My grandma for example likes it with nothing inside I prefer it with lots of sugar and raising. In the end it should look more or less like this.

They do exist in a lot of combination and sizes. You eat then on the Easter weekend together with meat. Oh yes you heard right. It's actually nothing you eat together with a coffee (at least not during Easter, the rest of the year you do eat it as a dessert) but you put different sort of ham and sausages on it when eating. More of this tradition is coming tomorrow with pictures how everything looks at my family.

Now it's time for some nail art:

Items used:

essence I <3 TRENDS "02 sun is smiling"
essence I <3 TRENDS "03 I'm so fluffy"
essence I <3 TRENDS "07 hope for love"
essence I <3 TRENDS "07 bubble bath"
essence I <3 TRENDS "01 so lucky"
Color Club "French Tip"
dotting tool
nail art brush

I can't really tell you a lot about how I did this design. I painted first all the nails white and later did the design on my nails freehand with two different sized dotting tools and a nail art brush.

Hope you enjoy your Easter holidays with your family and friends. More traditions coming up tomorrow evening when our celebration is finished.
