For me, Easter time is the promise of summer and the colour opulenceof spring flowers. It’s about catching the first tentative sun rays inan outdoor cafe! So to go with that mood, a pink macaron coloured jeans it has to be. I’ve taken a leaf out of Diane Kruger’s style bookwith my pastel pink jeans, breton shirt and pink ballerina pumps.
For most of Easter, I’m in Berlin for a dental operation, while poor Mr Romantique stayed behind in London. I must admit that all the chocolate and cute Easter decorations in Germany made me recover rather speedily. Easter is almost as much of a big deal as Christmas here. Supermarkets turn into Willy Wonker factories where every chocolate brand, from Lindt to local chocolate manufacturers such as Rausch, compete over who creates the cutest chocolate rabbit.
Shopping malls install Easter markets displaying animated giant toy rabbits who engage in adorable activities such as conducting a classical concert out of an Easter egg or racing in a flying carrot! At home, I like to decorate the flat with bunny and chicken ornaments hanging from willow pussy branches or cherry tree twigs.
No wonder Germany turns into rabbit land over Easter, the bunny as an Easter symbol has it’s origins here, where it was first mentioned in German writings in the 1500s. The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany during the early 1800s. German emigrants brought the symbol of the Easter rabbit to America in the 1700s.
