Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Today we went to church in the morning and then had lunch with our upstairs neighbour and her relatives. We had turkey, stuffing, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, greens, and salt beef. Then for dessert we had these cute little chocolate cakes.

It was really fun!

After lunch we hid Easter eggs for each other (in the house - it was raining!) and hunted them, then ate some of the candy from our Easter baskets. We had leftovers and tea for supper.

What about the rest of you? Did you do anything interesting and fun? Do you have any Easter traditions your family does?

Hope you all had a nice holiday! For those - like us - who have tomorrow off school or work, have a great long weekend!

The Green Girls


  1. Joyeuse Pâques, les filles! :)

    It sounds like you had a great day. It was raining here, too.

    We ate a lunch of ham, potato salad, and pasta salad. Some of the girls went to church, but those who didn't dyed eggs. Lilly signed her name on every egg...haha...of course she would do that. ;)


  2. Happy Easter, girls! We had ham, potatoes, vegetables, shrimp, a bunch of different salads, and tons of desserts to eat. All of us girls made cookies and hunted for eggs. It was a lot of fun. And no school today!


  3. Hi girls. This is Kaya.

    Thanks for sharing what you did for Easter fun!

    Sounds like a good time for both of you. (Hilarious about Lilly signing all the eggs!)

    Some of the girls here go to church on a regular basis, and some don't. I actually am one of them who goes, which sometimes surprises people - but like a lot of modern members of my tribe, I practice both Christianity and our tribal religion. That's always felt normal to me, and it's how I was raised as a young child.

    We decided that on Easter, we'd all go to church, just because it's kind of a traditional thing for our family to do.

    It's interesting to hear about the different foods people eat for Easter. Some people here have ham, and others have basically the same menu as Thanksgiving. (We do have Thanksgiving in Canada; it's a pretty modern holiday that the government admits they just copied because a holiday of thankfulness seemed like a nice idea. Ours is in October not November, though.) Either is equally accepted and normal. We had the turkey one, but other families would have eaten ham.
