Easter is right around the corner, and if your family is anything like mine, you have lots of traditions. One of the things I always looked forward to as a kid was going with Grandma to get the goodies to put our Easter baskets together. My brother and I would get to pick out the types of candy we wanted and it was so much fun. We never knew everything that would be included, because Grandma would put it together for us and give it to us on Easter. Since I was never a big chocolate eater, I usually got a jump rope, paddleball, or bottle of bubbles, instead of the big chocolate bunny. We never believed in the Easter Bunny, we understood that Easter was all about the Resurrection of Christ.
We did have an Easter egg hunt with my cousins, after the huge meal we would have. Since Easter is about renewal and resurrection, our family would have our yearly family reunion on Easter Sunday. Our routine was going to church, eat with the family, and then the kids would have the egg hunt and play while the adults would sit and catch up on family news and gossip. Those memories are still fresh in my mind, all these years later.
Here are 6 tips to prep for your EPIC EASTER!
