Two more weeks until Easter!
My boys started to get in the habit of counting the days & months from one fest to another, e.q. How many days til Christmas, til Easter, til my Birthday, .....?
That is what really matters it seems. And even tough I noticed that in Australia Easter is not such a big deal, in Europe we do love to celebrate Easter in a big way.
But growing up with Easter in Spring, celebrating Easter in Australia at the beginning of Autumn still feels very strange to me.
I always associated Easter with spring flowers, pastel colors, a slow awakening of nature, the sun is slowly getting stronger and starting to warm up the earth.
Here in Australia the Easter bunny makes his way around pumpkin wines, golden, red & orange leaves, ripened apples & harvest time.
Even though, I love the Australian Autumn, I still struggle with this combination and my system feels confused.
But my boys don't really seem to care about these things as there system hasnt had a chance to get used to neither one of the seasons festivals, routines & changes.
Nonetheless, as I mentioned in my blogs around Christmas time, I still love to keep some of my German traditions around festive seasons alive and integrate them into our Australian life-style:
Oh, we Germans love a good cake(or cakes?)!
Therefore, I would love to share today with you my recipe for Braided Easter Bread:
Tip: You can freeze this Braided Easter Bread if you like. You can prepare it a few days prior to Easter, freeze it and take it out on Easter Sunday. Once defrosted, it will taste like freshly baked.
A great way to do that is sleeping together with your newborn baby as it has some excellent practical benefits, but there are some important aspects to consider and watch out for.
