Easter 2012

Helsinki, 0 degrees

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life - The blossom time of souls.

While we are experiencing a setback concerning the spring like weather as snow fell down this April morning in Helsinki, my thoughts go to Easter since we are celebrating Easter week here! Even though it's a religious festivity, I like to think of it as the awakening of life! Flowers come to life, the lawns start to grow again and willow bushes get buds. In Swedish the word for Easter is påsk, taken from its Hebrew name pesah and in Finnish it's pääsiäinen, an old word meaning the end of Lent. How do you call Easter? Do you have similar Easter decorations in your country?

The most inspiring story of the week comes from Germany though where Volker Kraft and his family decorated the tree on his backyard with 9 800 Easter eggs! Aren't they beautiful?

    1. Here actually the supermarkets have run out of chocolate eggs and regular eggs as well due to the high demand around Easter, haha!

  2. Lovely easter inspired pictures. Sorry about the weather there, it's actually pretty cold here as well. We will be having a four day long weekend in SA, everyone gets together with family to celebrate.
