Oh, you big egg - is it Easter again, some may think. Another rejoices - because whether it's snowing or storming, home is where the joyful colors and love of life move in. Everything is blooming, everything is sprouting - soon we will be able to celebrate long evenings outside with friends again. No more mud and gloomy winter days. There's a promise in the air! So I'm looking forward to Easter, who's looking forward with me? Of course, many also celebrate the holiday as the highest celebration of the Church. For Masses and services Anyone interested can find the dates here.
What are you doing for Easter? I'm a huge egg fan, after all. The rest of the year too. I prefer to stay away from the sweet offers of the supermarkets, otherwise there is no stopping me. Everything that is oval ends up in my shopping basket ;-) I find coloured eggs especially beautiful, because they radiate life with their colourfulness. I don't have to hide eggs. Even the attempt would be doomed to failure, because my dog would have sniffed and devoured everything in no time..
Around the egg
Neben the traditional egg hiding, Frankfurt offers so much at Easter, so that I have collected today for you times everything that I like. Maybe you like it too...
· Hidden places not only for the little ones, but also adults I had already presented to you here in the InsideFFMBlog. I love these corners as ever. Especially nice for exploring at Easter.
· To the eternal question, "Which came first? Chick or egg?" admittedly I don't know the answer. But we can be there when the chick hatches from the egg: at the Bornheim Small Animal Breeders' Association. A unique experience for children. Parents can feast on homemade cake and delicious coffee.
· What I have always wondered: Why is there an Easter Bunny? Hm.that's where the minds are at odds. The most plausible theories I've found are: Rabbits multiply like rabbits, especially in the spring (Warning: intentional pun.). And early on, animals were depicted at Easter, the hare exclusively from the 17th century on. In addition, of course, eggs are also considered a fertility symbol.
· Sending Easter greetings? No problem. If you want to show acquaintances and relatives that you are thinking of them, you can send a message electronically. The city of Frankfurt has once again thought of everything and set up a greeting card page. The "Proud Bunny" is especially cute. ;-)
· It doesn't get any greener than this: the start of the season for green sauce is - of course - Maundy Thursday.
· Should the weather cooperate, it's certainly worth a spin around the Dippemess with Ferris wheel and cotton candy.
· City bells not only at Christmas. No, 50 bells from ten churches in the city also ring out at Easter. The order is fixed - St Paul's Church starts, the Imperial Cathedral chimes in at the end.
· It doesn't get more colorful than this: seeing Frankfurt through a child's eyes, is the title of an exhibition at the Junge Museum.
· Who does not want to deprive his children, rabbits and other creatures, plan a trip to the zoo, which offers an eventful program for Easter Sunday and Monday, including crafts and tour.
