How different are your Easter celebrations this year? We have all gotten used to traditions over time, doing certain things in the same way and that includes holidays. This year though, it is going to be different for most us; actually this is the second year now - celebrating Easter in lockdown.
The first year was obviously strange and totally confusing so most of us probably didn’t even think about it, but now you we have had time to figure out a few things and that include Easter celebrations. Granted Corona Virus Pandemic and lockdowns across the globe has limited us, but it has also given us a chance to spend more time with family and friends.
And I know family can be difficult, sometime and spending day and night in the same space can be a challenge, but deep down you know these are your people and they are the ones who will always have your back. That said, you know you can figure out that living situation and actually make it work. Life pre Covid was not bad, but it was also not great. We were too busy for each other and living for tomorrow, lockdowns and the number of people losing their lives everyday has taught us to live in the moment and cherish that.
As we continue to figure out how we will celebrate holidays hereon - because this pandemic is here with us and we don’t know for how long; maybe it’s time to learn that new recipe that you never got the time to. We may not get the chance to run in open fields collecting Easter eggs for a long time, but maybe this is your chance to create a new tradition.
For most us who grew up in Kenya, egg painting during Easter is foreign, and as my mama says, it came with the boat. We are used to travelling upcountry and being chased around by chickens, but this will not be possible this year. Instead we have the frozen food section where will get our chicken.
If you are big on sending out Easter basket to neighbors and friends, you can still get to do that with online shopping. For organic products like what we have on the store, just put in your delivery address and if you are buying it for someone else, give us their address and will deliver. You get to stay safe and still be able to send out that thoughtful basket. Easter sale is live with amazing discounts on select items this season, don’t miss out on that.
