Easter Almost Over

"Keeping an eye on the Children"  Easter Day, Okanagan Lake Beach

The First Tulip of Easter, Penticton, BC

Easter Magnolia, Penticton BC
Mostly over, nearly all the eggs eaten, and photos taken, now we can really get on with the Wedding. I discovered Canadian TV has a program entitled "Royal Wedding" lasting a mere eight hours.... Much more interesting, I discovered an Easter tradition in Hungary in the town of Mezokovesd that peaked my interest. The girls and boys get all decked out in elaborate Hungarian folk-costume. They go outside in the sunshine, and the boys proceed to throw buckets of water over the girls. In the news photos from yesterday, the girls were all smiles just as the water cascaded over them...I suspect they won't be all smiles afterwards when they realize how sopping wet they really are.

Es ist schön mit der Familie Ostern zu feiern.
Wir haben auch mit den Kindern Ostern gefeiert.
Bei uns sind die Tulpen schon verblüht.
Wir haben sehr warm, fast wie im Sommer.
Danke für die tollen Fotos.
Liebe Grüsse

I'm so pleased I didn't grow up with a tradition like that :)
