Got Whipped?

I did.  It was Easter this past weekend.

In keeping up with Easter tradition here in Czech, the females in my family were whipped by the males.  It doesn’t matter what age, gender is all that matters.



Here, my sister-in-law got whipped by her own son.

Even my very young daughter got her share of whipping too.


Luckily, her Tata kept a watchful eye and held her close for comfort.


And yes, it may sound way too weird, but the rationale behind the whipping actually makes a lot of sense.

It is done to ward off bad spirits and ensure good health all throughout the year, for the person whipped .   More about this practice can be found in my previous post here.

Meanwhile, when we got home, it was time to eat the choco Easter bunny that Jakub got from our Swiss friends.


At first, he was a bit hesitant to eat it as he had been attached to it after waiting too long for this moment.

Here he is giving it one last kiss.


But in the end, his love for chocolate still prevailed.


Crunch!  Off went the bunny’s tail.

And of course, he wasn’t the only one devouring this tasty treat.  His chocoholic mama “helped him out.”

No wonder somebody escaped from her play gym.


Anyhow, I hope you had a great Easter weekend!

    Hi Grace,
    Best post ever! The sequence with Jakob and the chocolate bunny was hilarious. And your little girl is adorable. Best wishes to the whole family!
