Buona Pasqua!

Happy Easter, everybody! Christ is risen! Although our Easter began rainy (forcing us to have an inside picnic at the church), the clouds have cleared and the sun is shining. We hope you're having a wonderful Easter. And in case you haven't had enough chocolate to celebrate God's love for humankind, we've included a few snapshots of Easter displays around Torino.

More so than Easter Bunnies, Easter Eggs are the chocolate expression of Easter here. Almost every pasticceria (a.k.a. bakery) window is full of them and many of them have surprises inside.

Some are more fanciful than others. . .

. . .and some are just big. Here's John and our friend Jerica contemplating the size of this egg.

So of course we had to get our own little egg! Isn't it beautiful?

We love you all and Buona Pasqua!


  1. What a great post! I love the picture of you and John. How many eggs can you guys fit in your luggage? Happy Easter!

  2. If Italy knows how to do anything, it is food! How long did the egg last, by the way? Was the eating ceremonial or more 1:30AM snacky desperation?

    I agree with Mom too, the picture of you both is very nice, though I am a touch disappointed that the ol' maroon and white did not make an appearance. Did John forget all of his A&M clothes back in Texas? What would Mills think?

    Thanks for all the posts!


  3. Happy Belated Easter to you!
    Yes indeed, CHRIST IS RISEN!
    Your selection of an EGG was perfect.
    So glad you were spared any damage from the earthquake.
