|Home History Culture Customs, Tradition, and Memories
By Margaret Aman Freeman, Redondo Beach,
My grandmother Aman, who lived her last years in
Lehr, North Dakota, seeded plates of wheat for her
grandchildren for Easter. My mother recalled all the
flat surfaces with plates on them, as there were many
little ones who lived nearby who looked forward to
the Easter bunny placing eggs in the grass at Grandma's
Grandmother grew up in Bergdorf and Marienberg of
the Glueckstal group of colonies.
This custom must have been part of living in more
villages in the Black Sea and Bessarabia, and is something
that was continued in North America.
