1. What is your favourite Bermudian tradition?
My favourite Bermudian tradition surrounds Easter Weekend – flying kites and making fish cakes for Good Friday. Although this year my son flew his drone instead as there was no wind! We still ate my homemade fish cakes and hot cross buns. On Easter Sunday, family and friends come to my home for Easter Sunday dinner. We eat, play games and simply enjoy each other’s company.
