On the day that is known in Catholic Europe as Good Friday, we decided to go on a road trip to a new place, Ibra.
Living in Ireland thought me new traditions, even though I am not big on religious customs I believe some traditions are to be kept and passed on through generations.
You might laugh but…hot cross buns is something I added to my “luggage”(yes…I like, no, love food). They seem to have quite a history, dating back to the 12th century apparently when a monk marked some buns with the cross sign in honour of Good Friday. While in Orthodox Romania, Good Friday would be a day where you would fast until sunset.
The eggs are part of an egg hunt in many Catholic countries and mostly are chocolate but in Romania, I never heard of that when I was a child and the eggs are hard-boiled eggs (usually red) painted that you have with Easter lunch.
That’s for Easter traditions, being in Oman is up to you to keep them.
But a trip…mmm…a trip should be always a tradition! For any occasion!
