EASTER SEASON WITH OPEN SPACE
Written & Edited by Stacy Oswald
It has been a crazy past couple of weeks…
I have been up and down and round and round all over Sofia, actually it is more like i had a mid term training for my EVS and strong obligations and commitments with turn ups that my hangover just ended yesterday but i did not even begin to think about skipping to write about EASTER!
The reason why i did not post on the actual Catholic or so Easter is because in Bulgaria, most people are Orthodox and they celebrate their Easter a week a head of the normal Catholic Easter, (I do not have the correct term for the two groups) in this case, Easter was on the 7th April 2018
I grew up with a strong Catholic belief and I would go to church with my family on the Easter Sunday, oh! before that, we would eat no meat on Good Friday, and the ceremonies follow up with a good family Easter meal.
I learnt very differently this year, I LEARNT ABOUT EASTER EGGS!
I know first egg has to be red as to symbolize the blood of Christ but everything else is still a blur to me and I am still learning about, I mean, if they do believe in “the blood of Christ” then why different Easters in these two churches?
MAYBE I WILL FIND OUT AND WRITE ABOUT THAT…
(this wasn’t the first egg, usually it is full red)
This Easter was the first that I spent away from my family, and i can say it was exciting because i had a new family here in Bulgaria that taught me how to paint easter eggs and I am eagerly waiting for the egg fighting (Will share pics) do not get too excited we are not throwing eggs at people.
On the other hand I was sad because i miss my mom’s delicious meal….
All in all, i would say, this Easter for me was a chance for me to travel, I went to Veliko Tarnovo (see next post) and i had so much fun and learnt so much new experiences. I hope it was the same for you…
