Since Easter eggs are already for sale......
And I'll bet my non-leftover Christmas cookie that in the next couple of days, FasnachtschŁechli'll be out on the shelves as well. Every year, like bloomin' Groundhog day, and it's not even 2016 yet.

Oh craps. Really? Where? Which shops do I have to boycott... don't tell me, all of them...


Well, Migros did the FasnachtschŁechli last year IIRC, but you can make lactose-free truffles instead if you want to boycott. How did they go down (the truffles)?

(I wanted to include a frowning emoji, but just couldn't. As much as I dislike this trend of earlier and earlier holiday extensions, I luuuuurve FasnachtschŁechli. )

I had no idea what one of those was but having seen some in my local Migros today I now realise that they're those flat poppadom (sp?) like things they sell for Mardi Gras.

We eat these



and these



but not before taking The Light from the priest...and it is quite a challange to get back home from the church with a litten candle..



and in the second day of the Easter we "wet" the girls so their beauty doesn't fade away (it is said that the girls are like flowers)..


Oh we have the same tradition and I love it. We splash water at each other and sometimes it can turn to real chasing around the house (and garden). You have to be quick and run fast but you can also splash anyone you want to.
It is called Smigus Dyngus in Poland and I think originally it was like MusicChick describes her Czech tradition - boys chasing girls.
I splashe pd my English boyfriend with cold water on Easter morning last year and he couldn't stop laughing. It is so silly and a lot of endorphins for free

And we don't eat "these" but we make Baranek out of sugar or cake.
And we make "pisanki". You can for example boil eggs in onion skins and they turn dark brown. Then you scratch them with msg sharp to make cute patterns. I love Easter.

Hey. Truffles yum but I got in a mess and they were eaten in a flash. Next time I shall have to make more/hide them from Mr Rufus. Little Rufus has a tendency to bellow "cake" at any cake type thing and we're trying not to feed her too much sugar.... and I feel weird sneaking chocs ... sounds like a First World problem...

What is a Fastnachtschuechli? Sorry, my Kindle won't do an umlaut... we weren't here last Feb...

Happy New year by the way!

Hehe, happy to hear that about the truffles


FasnachtschŁechli are these:


Word of warning: don't look at the calorie/fat/sugar content before eating
Sugar-sprinkled yumminess!
Apparently there's yogurt in the small (and therefore probably in the large) versions (they contain gluten and lactose, ingredient list here).
