Mein Name ist Saskia und ich bin eine 18 jährige Abiturientin, welche in der 11. Klasse ein Jahr im Ausland verbracht hat. Dieser Blog galt urprünglich diesem Jahr, um alle möglichen Eindrücke festzuhalten. Mittlerweile ist diese Zeit aber auch schon wieder mehr als ein Jahr vorbei und ich befinde mich mitten im 12. Klasse Abi Stress. Da mein Hobby der Fotografie in letzter Zeit etwas zu kurz gekommen ist, wie ich finde habe ich beschlossen, diesen lange Zeit eingestaubten Blog wieder aufzunehmen. Ich werde erneut aus meinem Leben und über dieses und andere meiner Hobbies posten. Die Seite ist auf Pinterest verlinkt. Ihr seit also herzlich eingeladen, mir dort zu followen. Falls ihr bis jetzt noch keine Ahnung habt, was Pinterest überhaupt ist, solltet ihr auf jeden Fall mal vorbei schauen Es lohnt sich ;)

Easter Eggs and Birthday Cakes

How you probably know: Last weekend was easter and of course they celebrate these religious days here in America, too. The Thursday before Easter I also had my 17. birthday, which I celebrated with some friends together at the bowling center and at my house. My host mom bought a cake and birthday candles before, which was really cute and I had to put on a birthday crown, which is kind of a tradition here for girls, who are turning 16. Even I turned 17. they thought I should make this experience of being a "birthday princess" :D 


The day before Easter sunday we colored easter eggs. It's more of a tradition to put the boiled eggs in colored vinegar, than to paint on them like we do it in my family in Germany. I also didn't see any egg decoration on trees or bushes. Anyways; the results of the egg coloring were very good. The biggest thing here  for easter (of course...) is candy. They have just so much here. The weirdest thing I've seen for easter, though, were m&m's with carrotcake taste. I tried them and they really taste like it :O ...  Next to chocolate they have at least 6 different types of jelly beans. Much too much, too much, too much, too much, too much! ...

 

On easter sunday we went to church in the morning and it's kind of a special thing for me because I've never done that before in my life for easter. I just love the church my hostfamily is going to. It is pretty dark inside but the church has amazing window art. I kind of tried to take pictures of it but the didn't turn out really good :(  Therefor I give you some nice  other pictures from my birthday and our easter eggs ^_^ Hope you like it!
