Lenten Resources from The Trapp Family

I am a big fan of "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" wherein Maria details many lovely celebrations, both liturgical and familiar for the Easter season which we seem to have lost from our transplanted European culture here in the US.
I love the detail she takes in describing how to decorate the Easter eggs, it's a true art form; no supermarket decorating kits for the Trapp family! Especially touching is the description of the Easter Triduum, and the emotions it evoked in even the smallest child. She tells of the intense beauty of Catholicism at it's best.
There is a blog called, Around the Year with the Trapp Family which goes into Lenten customs in great detail. See what they have to offer to help you plan your Lenten observations.
