(Chocolates from Galler. All consumed now.)
Aside from the religious significance, I am always reminded by Easter Sunday of my late grandmother who was a great influence in my life. She was born on an Easter Sunday and was nicknamed Paz from the word Pascha. Since I don’t have the ideal cultural elements for Easter, I got the egg-shaped chocolates from Galler as substitute for Easter eggs.
And although I’m not fond of Easter bunnies and stuffed toys, it’s just coincidental that I ‘adopted’ this dog from a shoe store (would you know where?) close to Easter Sunday. Hence, I’ll be reminded that once I have my Easter dog. I have long been thinking of getting a puppy toy since pets are not allowed in our flat or should I say having dog as pet is generally discouraged in UAE for some religious reasons. I instead settled for a Marley. Yes, inspired by the movie Marley and Me. He would always have that pitiful look even if he is actually happily engaged with PSP.
Happy Easter, everyone!
