When I was a little girl I remember we  had a family holiday to Italy one year over Easter.   I recall certain shop windows (I am guessing sweet shop, bakers, maybe cafes) having huge Easter Eggs  wrapped up in cellophane  and curling ribbons, beautiful displays of cakes, cookies and sweet treats.

Today as I walked into the village I saw a long procession of people, taking up the lead was the vicar and a man carrying a huge wooden cross.  This scene  triggered another Easter memory which I had almost forgotten…it was  when I went to OBERAMMERGAU to see the PASSION PLAY.  Although I am not particularly religious I do remember being very moved by the whole experience.

Oberammergau Passion Play is a passion play  which was first performed in  1634  as a tradition by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau,Bavaria, Germany. Since its first production it has been performed on open-air stages in the village. The text of the play is a composite of four distinct manuscripts dating from the 15th and 16th centuries.  The play is a staging of Jesus’ passion, covering the short final period of his life from his visit to Jerusalem and leading to his execution by crucifixion.

I  L-O-V-E  all seasons for their traditions, especially  EASTER, please may I share my EASTERrie things with you that I have displayed around my house and gifts I have ready to give to my loved ones…
