It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...


Easter...

Don't ask me why the French have Easter bunnies out everywhere... the Beloved Rabbit does not make deliveries here. Instead, it's the Bells of Rome who are charge of distributing the goods on Easter morning...

Legend has it that on Good Friday, all the church bells in France fly to the Vatican bringing the sadness and misery from Jesus' crucifixion with them. The bells fly back on Easter Sunday morning and drop chocolate and eggs in our back yards.

Therefore, French church bells do not ring from Good Friday to Easter morning.
