Happy Easter!


Hello everyone,

We had a very enjoyable double birthday celebration last week. It was Sachiyo’s birthday last Thursday, and mine last Sunday, so we all went out for lunch on Friday. Thanks to everyone for the food, gifts and well wishes. I had a Japanese classic lunch of tenpura and soba. Delicious! At the weekend I noticed that the cherry blossoms are getting thinner on the trees now. It won’t be long until the last of them fall. The cherry blossom snowing down in the park is a beautiful sight. We have some great parks in Fuji to see them.

It’s Easter week at Hario! This week we’re celebrating Easter by having fun Easter games and activities with our students. They can design their own paper eggs and play an Easter egg hunt game. The egg hunt is a classic game played by children all over the world at this time of year. The Easter Bunny hides chocolate eggs for kids to search for. Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates Jesus coming back from the dead 2,000 years ago. It always falls on a Sunday, so the date changes every year. It can take place between March 22nd and April 25th. This is because it’s the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. So you can see it’s quite complicated to figure out when Easter Sunday takes place every year. The egg is a symbol of rebirth and people have eaten eggs on Easter Sunday for many years. A long time later, the Easter bunny was created for children as a character to associate with Easter, like Santa Claus. And like Christmas, you don’t have to be Christian to celebrate and eat chocolate. These days, it’s a very confectionary driven holiday. In Ireland, you can see chocolate eggs everywhere in supermarkets. My parents buy these for me every year, and have even sent some in the mail to Japan. I’m looking forward to eating lots of chocolate soon!
