Hot cross buns all dripping golden butter.
Decorated chocolate eggs and sugar flowers.
Rich Simnel cake with little balls of marzipan.
Fluffy marshmallow chicks and bunny biscuits.
Cupcakes made like birds’ nests.
Roast spring lamb with all the trimmings.  
Four day weekend and day trips to the seaside.

Remind me what Easter’s all about again?

OK. You all know it's not my religion, but don't go thinking that I'm having a go at anyone. I'm not.

FFF55 is a weekly challenge to write something in exactly 55 words.  For more examples take a trip to see the G-Man at Mr Knowitall.

Hi Morning AJ .. fortunately I live by the sea .. and see it everyday .. but Simnel Cake - I just love it .. actually hot cross buns too that are easier to get hold of ..

We used to have to sit quietly for an hour on Good Friday when we were kids ..

Have a peaceful Easter ..Hilary

I'm not religious either, but I do class myself as spiritual and respect all peacefully held beliefs. The message has certainly been lost.

as much as christmas has...renewal, refreshment and hope...hopefully.

Hot cross buns were originally more of a penance you only ate plain food on Good Friday and fasted during lent. Now they are a luxury item laced with sugar and on sale all year round. Profit destroys the spirit of all these festivals when corporates get in on the act. Now Mammon is the most successful God and we all worship him with our credit cards.

Of course those are all the things people now associate with Easter aren't they?

Happy Easter to you AJ. x
