Frohe Ostern! Happy Easter!

Heute morgen war es zwar kalt, aber der Himmel war blau und die Sonne schien. Perfekt fuer die Ostereiersuche. Der Osterhase hatte sie gut versteckt –

It was cold this morning, but the sky was blue and the sun was shining. Perfect for the easter egg hunt. They were well hidden –

aber wir haben alle gefunden.

but we found them all.

Hartgekochte, gefaerbte Eier sind ja etwas “typisch” deutsches – laut dem Larousse gastronimique (DEM grossen franzoesischen Kuechenlexikon) wurde der Brauch, verzierte Eier zu Ostern zu verschenken, in Frankreich erst im 15. Jahrhundert vom Elsass uebernommen. Heutzutage findet man in Frankreich eigentlich keine gefaerbten Eier, dafuer aber jede Menge Eier, Kueken, Hasen, Eulen und Glocken aus Schokolade. Eierjagden (chasse d’oeufs) gibt es in Frankreich auch, allerdings werden die Eier nicht vom Osterhasen, sondern von Glocken verteilt.

Hard-boiled, coloured eggs are something quintessentially German. According to the Larousse gastronomique (THE big French Cooking Encyclopedia), the tradition to give decorated eggs as presents was only adopted in France in the 15th century, from Alsace. Nowadays, one does not find coloured eggs in France, but eggs, chicks, rabbits, owls and bells made from chocolate. Egg hunts (chasse d’oeuf) are also conducted in France, but the not the easter bunny, but the easter bell hides the eggs.

Ich habe diesen Fisch bekommen.
