Easter Stories

Happy Easter! Last week we invited you to share either a favorite Easter tradition or a fun memory. Thanks to everyone who shared something! Here are your responses:

  • Dying easter eggs
  • Easter baskets!
  • Easter dresses: mine was always pink and my little sister’s was yellow. We dyed eggs and hid and hunted them all day indoors and out.
  • Easter egg hunts with my children when they were young.
  • Eating ALL the candy, especially chocolate!
  • Eating chocolate bunnies
  • Going to a Waffle House in Atlanta to admire hats after church services ended.
  • I adopted an Easter tradition from a beloved aunt. The Easter bunny at our house left each child a colorful yarn path throughout the house to the hiding place of her basket. Now our daughters do the same for their kids, saying that stringing yarn all over their homes is a pain. Exactly the kind of tradition to pass on! Happy Easter!
  • I make Easter baskets every year for my kids. My daughter is 21 now but I still make sure she gets a chocolate bunny😁
  • In the Unitarian church I grew up in we always received a small potted flower. I started this in Foothills, years ago, I hope you still do🌸
  • Large 4″ chocolate coated Easter eggs, center pieced of Easter basket for egg hunt w/ 3 siblings
  • My children grew wheat grass in the Easter baskets that they fed to our rabbits on Easter day so everyone got treats
  • My tulips are about to bloom while my crocuses and daffodils are still just emerging, having been buried under massive piles of snow.  Ah, spring!
  • Not a biggie in my family but there was usually lamb for dinner.
  • One of the good things about Alzheimer’s is that you can hide your own Easter eggs. Oops! I think I forgot to buy eggs.
  • Rowdy Mothers annual Easter Egg hunt — we found real (rotten) eggs in our backyard for months afterwards, LOL!
