I always loved to spend Easter at home in Germany. If I’m honest and with nothing to hide, I have to admit that it is all the holidays that I have missed abroad and working in retail. Easter is a special time in Germany, and decorations spruce up every town. Many towns have wells that are adorned with painted Easter eggs and other Easter bunny decorations. Little Easter eggs are also seen hanging from branches of bushes near peoples personal properties and most every window has some sort of bunny statue, chocolate eggs and whimsical display. It’s as if it is an entire towns effort to celebrate and it always takes me back to the traditions that I grew up with. It’s homey, cozy and familiar, it puts a swing in your step as you smile from window to window in anticipation of the holiday to arrive.
