Good Friday At Farmor’s…

Farmor, the kid’s swedish grandmother, has moved house. She’s a little older now, so she’s given up her house with a large garden, for a lovely little flat near to the centre of her town.

We usually enjoy a day with her over Easter, and this year was no different…

Fortunately for her, and for us, she’s still only a short drive from the forest, where beautiful spring flowers were in their masses…

And of course, the kids were treated to Easter eggs…

  1. Look like Easter for your family is a nice long affair – lasting over several days!How much fun for the children this must be! Our Easters were relegated to one day only. I loved sharing in the day with their Swedish grandmother! Happy Easter to all!

  2. Yes, I think Easter lasts a little longer here – I think it’s the combination of the Christian traditions, and the old Pagan traditions that Sweden still seems to be ‘in touch’ with (ie/ Easter witches). I think you’re right – great memories for the kids! 🙂
