Happy Easter!

April 13, 2017

How wonderful it is to celebrate Easter this year for the first time in Trondheim. Usually on this time of the year we are so busy but this is the first year that Johan is no longer a student. We have tended to travel to his family every Easter but this year we are not going to travel anywhere.

We are quite lucky in Norway to have so many days off during Easter compared to for example our neighbour country Sweden who doesn’t have a day off today. I’m a Christian and therefore Easter has a spiritual meaning for me, where I remember what Jesus did for us.

Additionally, there are a lot of cultural things attached to Easter and we have many things that we do during this holidays. Here in Norway it is very common that people go up to the mountains and spend the time there with family or friends.  However, not everyone appreciate the mountains and they tend to either travel to warm country or just relax at home like Johan and I are doing this year, but next year we are going to rent a cabin and travel to the mountains.

On Saturday we are going to eat lamb which is a great tradition in Norway. This is very unlike my traditions from Brasil where we don’t eat meat before the Resurrection Day. I have no problem of eating lamb on Saturday since I feel more Norwegian than Brazilian. My grandmother is a Catholic and she is very strict when it comes to Easter celebration. If Johan and I were to spend our Easter holidays there we would have to follow her regime haha.

Johan and I just want to wish you guys a happy Easter. Be cool with your family and love ones!

We would love to know how you celebrate Easter in your country 🙂

Much love! ♥
