Taalla ei tunnu yhtaan paasiaiselta. Meille ei ole tulossa ketaan. Me emme ole menossa minnekaan. Ei ole rairuohoa (that was my own stupid mistake as I realised it too late again). En saa mammia (olisin voinut tehda itse mutta arvatkaa vaan tuliko mieleenkaan etta mammi pitaisi tehda noin 5 paivaa ennen syomista). Suklaamunat taalla on harvinaisia eli emme saa Kindermunia/yllatysmunia (muista suklaamunista puhumattakaan). Pashaa ei saa kaupasta enka saa edes tehtya kun en saa kaupasta rahkaa. On aika pohko olo. Pienia asioita mutta kuitenkin tarkea osa paasiaista meidan perheessa. Sama juttu oli palmusunnuntain virpominen. Sekin on jaanyt taalla asuessa. :(
Vaikka koristeet on esilla niin paasiaismieli on jossain muualla kuin taalla. Elan toiveessa etta joskos se viela tannekin kerkeaisi. Nyt iski taas koti-ikava!
It doesn't feel like Easter here at all. No guests coming to us. We're not going anywhere. No Easter grass (that was my own stupid mistake as I didn't remember it in time). I cannot get mammi (I could have made it myself but i didn't even think that I would have to make it c. five days before eating it). Chocolate eggs as I know them are very rare so we are without Kinder/ surprise (or any other) chocolate eggs. I cannot get pasha from the store and I cannot even make it as I cannot get quark from the store. It's a weird feeling. Small things which are still important to our family Easter. It was the same thing with Palm Sunday and the Finnish traditions of decorating pussy willow branches and going from door to door wishing well and getting treats in exchange for the branches. That too has gone while we've lived here. :(
Even though I have the decorations it just doesn't feel like Easter. I'm hoping that it would get here still. I'm desperately home sick again!
