I can't wait to celebrate Easter! For my Christian family, this holiday is particularly special. Like every year, we will gather at my grandparents' house whose garden will show the first signs of spring. On Easter Sunday morning, we will head towards the church where we'll attend Easter mass with our congregation. As we come out, we'll listen to the Easter bells, and it will be time to go back home to enjoy the delicious traditional meal: lamb and flageolet beans. In the afternoon, the children will look for the chocolate eggs that the "bells" will have left for them in the garden. Hearing their delighted laughter as they find their eggs is definitely the highlight of these shared festivities!

I'll be right with you...
