Gleichfalls! :-)

Sadly I cannot be in Germany for Easter this year, but it looks as though September will see my return to Berlin!

The Osterhase has called at my place, too, this morning while I was in church. I found a little bag of goodies on my door.

Happy Easter to all those who celebrate!

I found him stuffing chocolates in the box hedge in Perth, Australia, but he said "g'day" not " frohe ostern"

Alithos anesti, Margory!

Osterhase (Easter Bunny) visits houses early in the morning of Easter sunday hiding chocolates and coloured eggs and sometimes little presents for the kids (and sometimes the adults get something too - it was a Meissen porcelain egg for me from my mum :) )

So this is the answer to the old question who was there first - the chicken or the egg. The egg, of course, delivered by the Osterhase.
