I’ve spent this morning decorating Easter eggs and making origami Easter bunnies with my child. Tomorrow I’m going to host an Easter egg hunt and in the past three weeks, I’ve attended a chaharsanbe-suri fire, a Norouz party and a 13bedar picnic. In short, I’m having a great time celebrating spring! The only problem is that it’s not actually spring in the Southern Hemisphere. To the extent that the four seasons are a meaningful concept in Australia, it’s early autumn.
