Easter Fun and Festivities!

I love the Easter long weekend, 4 glorious days off to rest and relax!

South East Queensland was truly blessed with the most amazingly warm and sunny weather, which is a change from the usual cool and wet that seems to arrive at the same time as ‘the bunny’.

Easter is all about spending time with family, so up the coast we went (along with hundreds of others), turning the Bruce highway in to a carpark. But it is worth it.

Mum always has her Easter tree on display.

A German tradition that is looks absolutely gorgeous as you walk in the front door.


Way too much food and drink was consumed, but we enjoyed every mouthful, and some my parents friends joined us on Saturday and Sunday. Two mini parties in a row. I still feel full 2 days on.


The ‘bunny’ has been, stocking us up on chocolate treats for the next few weeks.

In amoungst all the over-indulgence, we did go for a long walk along the beach and paddled our toes. I was disappointed that I did not take my togs, as the water was still lovely and warm, not what I expected.


And some people travel all around the world to find a beautiful beach, and this magnificent stretch of coast is there for the taking. The Sunshine Coast is truly beautiful.

Even though I don’t get to see my parents as much as I would like too, going up to visit them always feels like a holiday even if it is only for a few days. I do like having a holiday home at the beach. 🙂

Do you have Easter traditions?

  1. The weather was glorious over Easter in Brisbane and on the coast. It was the perfect time to be at the beach. We had a lot of chocolate indulgences too and the pantry is still packed with eggs and the like. Glad to hear you have a lovely long weekend. 🙂

  2. It was amazingly beautiful over the weekend wasn’t it! This was the first year our kids showed absolutely no interest in a visit from the Easter bunny (they are 20 next month, and 17). Which is a good thing I suppose, but I couldn’t help feeling a little sad 🙁

  3. My family has always celebrated Easter on Good Friday.

    However my partner family is Greek. Sometimes the Greek Orthodox Easter doesn’t fall on the same week as the other Christian Easter however this year it did. My favourite custom they have is an “egg fight”.

    Eggs are hard boiled and the shells are dyed red. Each person gets an egg and bashes onto another’s egg. The person with an intact egg at the end is the winner.

    1. I used to make one as well, but my branches looked a little worse for wear after a couple of moves, and I still have not got around to buying new ones, may-be next year. 🙂

  4. I agree, the weather was truly stunning over the Easter long weekend. What a gorgeous Easter tree! Looks like you had a wonderful weekend.. I am envious of the beach part, we considered hitting the Sunshine Coast but instead opted for a productive weekend at home (definitely not as fun!) Our Easter tradition is flannelette PJ’s for the kids, chocolate for Breakfast and a cooked breakkie for Brunch.. lucky it only happens once a year 😉
