How do Easter egg traditions enrich our celebrations of Christ’s resurrection?
In this Wild Card episode, the Ladies recount their own family Easter egg and Easter basket traditions past and present before accompanying Bri on a hilarious grand tour of Easter egg customs around the world. From egg-rolling in Scotland to egg showers (cascarones) in Mexico to the elaborately decorated pysanky of Ukraine, Bri provides a brief description of each practice, before offering a highly subjective (and, it turns out, occasionally debatable) score for each.
If you want to try something new and bring some international flair to your own Easter festivities, Bri’s round-up will provide you with a wealth of meaningful multi-cultural ideas.
