There is a custom of giving friends a red hard boiled egg.
At the branch Easter dinner there was a red egg on each plate. They also have the custom of bumping eggs with another person. It's kind of like breaking a wishbone. The egg that doesn't crack wins and that person is supposed to have good luck. Here Brent and Eni, one of our YSAs are cracking their eggs together.
There were about 45 people at the branch Easter dinner. It was a good crowd for our little branch. They served sarmale which is a traditional holiday dish here. It is an acquired taste but with bread I managed to enjoy it.
We are enjoying the city of Arad and the branch here. They have been very welcoming and love the missionaries.
And Happy Anniversary to us! It has been one year ago today that our son,Todd dropped us off at the Missionary Training Center.
