Easter traditions

peeps

Are you a Peeps fan? To me, Easter would not be complete without these little critters. I currently have a package in the freezer, so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat them ahead of time.

I didn’t hard boil any eggs this year, but I often pull these out for table decorations on Easter.

The two on top in this basket are actual uncooked eggs with the insides blown out before decorating. The others are wooden. No, I did not make any of them myself. I am nowhere near skilled enough to achieve such an artform. These are known as pysanky. This is a Ukrainian custom using wax, similar to batik, to create the elaborate designs.

I’d love to hear about your traditions. In the comments, tell me how you celebrate this holiday.
