Day 33: Almost Easter, or is it still Christmas?
On a walk today I saw that among the many spring flowers, bunny flags, and other Easter decorations someone still had their Christmas decorations up. This made me think about how excited I get to decorate for Christmas. I love the warmth of it all -- the little white twinkling lights, the smell of pine, presents wrapped with red and gold bows. And I'm not just enamored with the commercial and material side of Christmas. I love the hope that comes with the birth of Jesus, the arrival of a savior. I love the songs and candlelight services. SOoooo, why don't I feel as excited about Easter? Certainly this should be the more exciting holiday for a Christian. No? Jesus rose from the dead. That's way cooler than being born in a stable (or cave) to a sixteen year-old girl who probably felt scared and slightly alone. I mean, what Jesus did in dying on the cross for us (for me), and our sins is amazing. And how he rose from the dead is awesome, and maybe that's where my disconnect lies. It's so much easier to relate to the ugly, the mundane, and the ordinary which makes me forget how to celebrate the Wonderful, the Miraculous, and the Awesome. While Lent is a time for reflection, Easter is a time for celebration. It's a time to rejoice and maybe get a glimpse of the celebration that is to come when we rejoin Jesus in heaven. It's a time to look forward to the future and not hold on to the past. Maybe it's time to put away my excitement from Christmas(just as it's time to put away the Christmas decorations) and look forward to something better.
Easter Eggs (Romania)
DSC02615 Hand-painted eggs decorated for the Romanian Orthodox Easter. Provenance - Bucovina, Northern Moldavia (Radauti). Four of the more intricate eggs are painted on real eggshells of which the egg yolke and egg white were previously extracted with the help of a straw or a syringe. Three other eggs are decorated withg coloured glass beeds glued to the shell and one other ( with prevalent greens) is painted on wood. This technique is typical of the eastern Carpathians of Bucovina and Southern Poland, to a lesser extent as they have a majority of roman Catholics rather than Orthodox christians.. The eggs are held in a Transylvanian ceramic soup plate. NOTE: this style of Easter eggs decoration is typical of the Eastern Carpathians province of Bucovina in Northern Romania. You will find that, like in most of Old Europe, wars were waged, land was grabbed by invaders and borders changed according to the whim of the victors and in defyance of the local population and its identity. This is how, the Northern half of Romanian-speaking Bucovina is, since the WWII, in Ukraine - hence the term of "Ukrainian eggs" ascribed to the same style of painted eggs. Before WWI this province was part of the Habsburg Empire and 200 years earlier it was part of the Principality of Moldavia (present-day Romania). The painted eggs are very much in the tradition of christian Orthodox believers that is of Romanians, Ruthenians (Hutzuls) and Ukrainians.
