Easter Down Under

1 Comment Sydney, Typically Aussie

As I mentioned before I don’t know much about Australian Easter traditions so I had to read up on the subject and this is what I’ve found, correct me if I’m wrong.

Easter is the most significant event in the Christian calendar as it is associated with spring and new birth. It commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his death by crucifixion on Good Friday.  In Australia it also marks the beginning of the autumn since spring does not occur in April in Australia. Australia is a land with people originating from a lot different countries bringing different traditions with them and hence the Australian Easter celebration take place in a variety of ways. It is, just as in Sweden, celebrated as a public holiday with church services, rabbit and eggs as the major Easter attractions. Read more

First of all an update on the bank situation: after a lot of head scratching, grief and a couple of tears the whole situation resolved itself on Thursday night. My mum’s bank man (and also my bank man when it comes to my loans), who works at a local bank office independent from Swedbank but still within the same business group, contacted my Swedbank office and got them to approve that my bank accounts in their bank gets connected to a bank device issued by the local bank. Complicated I know but he basically certified that I was I and then handed my mum a new device. So I will get access to my money after all. Puh! What does everything around me has to be so complicated?!

But enough about that, let’s talk about the great weekend I had in Sydney instead. After receiving the good news about the money issue on the way to the airport a big weight was lifted off my shoulders and I could relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Read more
