Easter Monday

Happy Easter Monday!

This is my Easter display from a couple of years ago. I’m afraid Easter snuck up on me this year so all my Easter eggs and chicks have stayed in storage.

A web page called “Easter Monday in Canada” says about this day:

“Eggs of all types are an important symbol of Easter. They represent the rebirth of nature in the spring and the promise of new life in the spring and summer months to come and are seen as a reflection of the resurrection of Christ after his crucifixion. Easter eggs, whether they are made of chocolate or candy or are decorated hens eggs, are common gifts all over the world during Easter. However, the biggest Easter egg in the world is a representation of a Ukrainian Easter egg, known as a Pysanka, located in Vegreville, Alberta.”

A few years ago, we drove through Vegreville and I photographed that humongous Pysanka.  Here it is with my husband posing in front of it to give it even more handsomeness and a sense of scale.
