This year, we planned the cherry blossom viewing party for the 5th of April. And again, we had a rainy day for the third straight year in a row.
But this year, we were prepared. Because the 5th was also Easter Sunday in the western Calender, an egg coloring event was planned in the case of rain. So on this cloudy, light rainy day pretty much all student who signed up for the event and one or two more joined. We had a great day despite of the rain.
We all met up around 12pm and started painting the eggs straight away at the Smith’s school of English in Fuse. I had the eggs prepared for the egg coloring event the day before by extracting the egg white and the yolk. Also, we had acrylic colors, brushes and lots of newspaper ready. As we are in Japan, everybody painted his favorite motive (not necessarily an Eastern motive) on his egg. We had all kinds of different motives, like animals, manga characters, video game characters, flowers and so on. When everybody was finished, we showed each other the eggs. Then I prepared some scrambled egg with all the egg white and yolk that was still left, and we enjoyed it with the lunch boxes everyone had brought along. What a great alternative cherry blossom viewing party at the Smith’s school of English in Fuse this year!
By putting a string through the top of the eggs, they can be hung up anywhere and make a great and lasting decoration!
