Rebirth of nature

The following spring style is inspired by the tradition of Easter, which stands for peace and the recreation of life. Traditionally, Easter is celebrated by religious and non-religious groups each year in April. It's the time, when flowers begin to blossom. The ritual that children are searching for hidden eggs on Easter Sunday (this year on 24 April) is founded in the believe of rebirth.
