I wish your basket is full of Easter dreams!

Updated: Feb 27, 2023

Chocolate bunnies, outdoor tasty brunch, cakes baking, eggs hunting, eggs dyeing, the easter tree … these are just a few of the many festive ways to celebrate Easter holidays and it could not be sweeter than that.

Easter is just around the corner and I am super excited to celebrate it with my family. Easter has always meant to me the Sunday brunch in the garden with family and close friends. I have this vivid image in my head of my father working hard at the barbeque serving dozens of people around him. I have very fond memories of the kitchen table covered in lengths of every kind of traditional dishes like lasagna, tagliatelle with bolognese and parmigiana (a classic Italian dish made with thinly sliced, floured and fried eggplant layered with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in the oven) and my mum in her element with all of us greedy kids around her.

The fresh spring breeze and the bright colours of the just blossomed flowers where the backdrop for the joyful moments I shared with my loved ones.

Easter Sunday is coming up faster so make sure to carve out some extra time to prepare everything for this cherished tradition as it's almost time to get out the egg dyeing kits, start figuring out your Easter lunch menu and assembling your family's Easter baskets.

What are the most shared and meaningful traditions and how do people celebrate them? Let's browse some nostalgic Easter photos from previous generations who celebrated it before us.

Eggs hunt

"In the Northern Hemisphere, spring can be defined as the moment the sun glides across the celestial equator in late March. As we tilt toward that wondrous starlight, its rays become more concentrated on our side of the earth, giving us our warmer half of the year."

- The New York Times, Stepping Out on Easter Sunday by Jenna Wortham

The Easter basket

One of the many ways of celebrating easter are of course the colourful eggs in "nests" of baskets. A basket full of gifts, filled to the brim with goodies like decorated eggs, chocolate candy, and a cuddly stuffed bunny.





The Easter bonnet

As Easter parades are a traditional of Easter they are also the occasion for wearing the most bizarre hats of the season. As if the models were just waiting for nothing more than to parade with those oddities on their heads.
