Sentimental Sunday: Happy Easter!
Happy Easter! It's once again a holiday - and once again I'm wondering how my ancestor would have celebrated. So, I did a little research on Google. Turns out Luxembourg celebrates Easter Monday as a festival day, a reminder of Christ's encounter with pilgrims on the road to Emmaus. This year's festival celebrations include theatre, pottery souvenirs and sweets. While I'm not sure how much the modern festivals have in common with those my ancestor would have celebrated, they still look like fun!
