Shop Til You Drop!!
In between a flurry of guests and chores I did find time this Easter to add a ‘Shop’ page to this tab – either click here or on the ‘Shop’ tab at the top to have a sticky beak – please!!!
I hope you enjoyed your Easter for whatever reason :).
Is Easter Irrelevant?!
Easter is almost over and no-one who visited Balligar over the past 4 days mentioned it and no Easter eggs were exchanged!! I understand that it has no relevance if you’re not of the Christian faith or if you don’t participate as a celebration of spring because you live in the southern hemisphere, but is it really irrelevant?
Easter falls in the early part of Autumn (Fall) here and at the end of a long, hot summer in the Perth Hills we start to see a rebirth of flora and fauna as the environment recovers from the dry heat. So, I think we have cause to celebrate with eggs which are symbolic of the seed of life. Have you guessed that I like chocolate?! I also like the eggs that our 10 free-range chooks produce for us and a few discerning customers who help cover our costs. Oh – and since Easter Saturday I’m allowed to tell the world that I’m expecting to be a grandmother in 6 months time – now that’s fertility worth celebrating!!
The relevance of Easter is strong amonst the worlds christian community and beyond in terms of family, friends, the wider population wishing for peace and happiness for all mankind. Fantastic that for our family it brings the promise of new life, the end of the fire season and a new back gate 🙂
Yes, another reason Easter is celebrated – a weekend long enough to tackle DIY projects! Thanks for commenting. :)x
