Sharing My World 10-04-2023

Here is my post for Share Your World, hosted by Di.

Do you celebrate the Easter holiday and if not, do you have an alternative?
Well, I don’t have to work on Easter but I don’t celebrate it in the sense of it being a religious holiday. But a couple of days off is a cause for celebration!

Do you exchange gifts or have a traditional meal?
We all get together on the Sunday and we exchange Easter eggs.

How many Easter Eggs (or alternative) did you receive/give?
I received and gave three Easter eggs. Somehow, though, I have seven Easter eggs to eat. I must have “accidentally” bought too many again…

Was Easter a Bank Holiday in your country or did you have to work this weekend?
Yes, Easter Friday and Easter Monday are both Bank Holidays in the UK. I have a feeling years ago Easter Friday wasn’t officially a Bank Holiday, but most people had it as holiday anyway.

    Easter Friday, as you call it, is actually Good Friday, marking the day that Jesus died and was buried ( the Thursday before is called Holy Thursday). Years and years ago (like 40), I worked at a place that recognized Good Friday as a holiday but not Easter Sunday, because the holidays were determined by a Mon-Fri work week. Problem with that was that I didn’t work M-F, I worked 12 hour shifts Sun-Tues. So I always had to work on Easter.
    Every year I’d bitch that we celebrated the day Jesus died but not the day he rose from the dead. They finally got rid of Good Friday as a holiday (years later) and made it a floating holiday so you could use it for whatever day you liked. THEN I got Easter off.

      It wasn’t so long ago here that every single shop, even supermarkets, were closed on Good Friday. I don’t think that’s the case any longer though.

    I thought that question was oddly written, but I guess “egg exchanges” are a thing outside of America. We just hide them for the kids to find on Easter morning and then most of them rot away…

      No huge chocolate Easter eggs over there? Sorry to hear that ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Chocolate bunnies are more common here…. though I figured you were referring to actual hard boiled (and dyed) eggs, which are the kind of eggs we associate with Easter.

    Thanks for joining in. I worked with a woman who was a bigger chocoholic than Hubby and she would buy her four grandchildren Easter Eggs early, but always ended up eating them herself and then having to replace them. The last year we worked together, she had to replace them five times before finally giving them to the kids on Easter Sunday!
