Happy Easter all who celebrate!

Easter in Finland:

"Easter is at the center of a number of festivals marking the beginning of spring. Seven weeks before Easter, Mardi Gras, or Laskiainen in Finnish, is observed. This day traditionally marked the beginning of Catholic and Orthodox Lent. In the Kingdom of Sweden, to which Finland belonged until 1809, the Protestant religion had been adopted in the 16th century, so the meaning of Mardi Gras was changed to become, at least in rural areas, a day marking the annual cycle of women's labor. A feast was held and the whole village headed out to sled on the snowy slopes.

It has been centuries since the Finns have observed Lent but they still retain the tradition of eating well on Mardi Gras: pea soup, pancakes and buns filled with whipped cream, jam or almond paste. From the Orthodox they also adopted the custom of blini, or buckwheat pancakes.

Mardi Gras is an important winter day. Children leave their daycares or schools to go out sledding. Prayers are recited for a good flax harvest and so that the turnips grow as big as fists. Mardi Gras is, in the city, a time to celebrate life outdoors and at the same time to ward off the risks of poor nutrition..."

Can't survive without Coffee, Chocolate, Wine. Everything else is just the cherry (which I will eat too)
Introduction
Traveling - favorite country by far is Switzerland.  Going back again, with a side trip to Austria this time.  Zermatt is my idea of heaven.

Major hot pepper fiend - growing, eating, creating things to do with them, including torturing friends & family.

Nexus Nerd.
