Holidays are for two main things: pigging out on food and drinks, and lazying like a slob. Somewhere in between come the social innuendos (which hopefully lead to more food and booze), and the occasional fashion situations, triggered by the necessary socialising, which require clothes. Either way you’re fucked.
Easter Holidays, while they’re not too different from the above they have the best star of the show: The Easter Egg.
This little sucker makes up for all the dreading moments, and depending on where you’re from and your traditions for Easter, the Easter Egg is one motherfucker who likes to dress up for his three day party. I mean who can blame the guy? He’s basically naked all the time, might as well go all out on fashion this time around.
Those who celebrate Easter will have either the easter egg aka chocolate eggs, OR they’ll have the fancy easter egg aka the classic egg (#helloprotein) boiled and painted. It’s a Catholic and Orthodox tradition to have colourful easter eggs at the table on easter. And chocolate too.
I feel like by the time this post is over I’ll be craving chocolate and normal eggs like a lunatic.
How To Do The Easter Egg Tradition?
Buy all the chocolate eggs you can find, sit down in front of your fave tv show, eat them all, and be happy. OR, don’t eat them and leave some for pretty decor, for friends, family, that sort of stuff.
For the non-sweet easter egg, buy normal eggs, boil them, and then paint them in all the pretty colours in the world. Set them on beautiful decor and plates, and when the time comes – Easter Sunday – you can start Easter Egg binging. Hey, at least they’re protein.
Growing up we’ve only ever done chocolate eggs and then normal eggs boiled and painted in red, yellow and maybe green sometimes. Lately my mom’s loving the red easter egg and she’s only doing those.
However, if you love this holiday and you’re a DIY die-hard you will not be satisfied by only a few colours. Also… it feels like the more we grow up into responsible adults (I have rolled my eyes a bit here), we’re more prone to doing things right, and pretty, and putting a bit of effort into a damn table decor, you know?
Hence taking a step back and mixing food and fashion on this one, because they do go so well together. And those Instagram pics you’ll be taking… you’re welcome btw.
