Easter is probably my favorite holiday – after my wedding anniversary. 🙂 We don’t do a whole lot of celebrating. It’s just that the meaning of Easter makes it my favorite.
We will have baskets for the kids, but no Easter bunny. They know that I put gifts/candy in the baskets after they go to bed. They will hunt eggs at each grandparents house. They know that the grandparents hid the eggs, not a bunny. [Why does a bunny have eggs anyways?]
I will try to abstain from eating their chocolate.
They will have new clothes for church, and I will try to get the girls to wear hats.
We will eat a ham dinner with family and friends.
I know that it’s not the exact day Jesus rose from the grave, and there are lots of pagan rituals. Still, I enjoy the small focus on Christ’s resurrection and the hope it gives.
