Easter is originally a religious holiday for Christians, celebrating the day Jesus arose from the dead after the crucifixion. Today it has become a highly commercial event, full of chocolate, colorful flowers, decorated eggs and the famous Easter bunny.
After long and dark winter nights, Easter and the arrival of spring are truly celebrated in Scandinavia. We usually spend the holiday in the mountains, skiing and enjoying each other’s company. We go Easter egg hunting and share long talks over some good wine and great food. But sometimes, for different reasons, some end up alone during the holiday.
Take a look around you and recognize those who don’t have someone to share the holidays with. Not everyone has family or friends to celebrate with, and not everyone can afford a trip to the mountains. The pressure of having companions on holidays is huge. So, we encourage you to reach out to those who may be alone during Easter. Invite them over for dinner, take them with you skiing, or just share a chat over a cup of coffee. Just remember to look further then your own happiness and share some love. Because in the end, that’s what it’s all about: love <3
Happy Easter dear reader!
