My sister and I and some of our family would visit our grandparents, we would play and eat eggs, chocolate eggs, and have fun. My sister is younger than me by almost eight years so she would play with out younger cousin. I would play with my two older cousins who were boys. We dug holes and climbed trees and slways ate the sweets provided.
Then when Easter Sunday came mother, daddy, my sister and I went to the Easter egg hunt at church and then church afterword's. We dressed in hats, gloves, shiny dress shoes that always hurt my feet and a new dress. We always wore the proper under garments. That is the way we did it in the 50's and 60's.
The Easter egg hunt was huge as my child's eyes remember it. It was held on the lawn at the church. There were always special eggs to be found and the special eggs were the most sought after. We had lemonade and cookies and a great time. Everyone wore their finest clothes even the ones who always wore casual clothes wore their finest. Easter was always a special day and Easter week was fun.
God wants it to be special to us. He sent His Son to die for our sins. Let us start calling this week Easter week and not spring break. Always make it special in some way so through the generations our children and our children's children will remember Jesus died for us and how special and wonderful and freeing that is. God Bless
