How do you celebrate the Easter season? Please take
a moment and share with us what you and your family does that brings meaning
into the season.
Saturday i start boiling my eggs. For the next day, because we go to church and then we go to the park and hind the eggs in the grass with the church. It is a big thing with our church because we invite the town to come out to help with the ones that don't have anything for Easter.

I make a "Tomb cake" to help my children understand the meaning of easter. I make a layer cake, cut a hole and tunnel out of the bottom layer, frost it and put a cookie in front of the opening. We make a big deal of removing the cookie and seeing that the "tomb" is empty. Amy
My mom, age 79, my sisters family of teenagers and our kids in their 20's all come after church and eat dinner. My husband and I have already hidden 50-75 plastic eggs filled with numbered tickets, candy or those state quarters. The "kids" go find them and unload the goodies. Then the kids go hide them for the adults. After we unload our goodies, the tickets are cashed in in ascending order. #1 chooses one of the wrapped gifts or an envelope, then #2, etc. The envelopes include movie tickets or gift certificates or n Easter maze, puzzle, poem or story to be read aloud. We make it a little different each year, but my mom has the most fun. The kids hide the eggs in the trees and everywhere!!! Patti
my easter traditions are not very specail but i sure think they are. One of my favorite thing i love to do when i wake up in the morning around 7:00 or7:30 is open my gifts and share the love with my family and to be thankful that i love my family and they are all here with me. than-you chelsey
My name is also Annie... I wanted to make a special family tradtion and something meaningful, so every Saturday night we make Resurrrection Cookies and read the story from the bible. It is such a blessing to do this with my son. We have done this every since he was small.
Sunday morning he hunts for the eggs that the Easter Bunny has hidden in the house. Looks through his basket and checks out the cookies in the oven. Then it is off to church. When we come back from church, family and friends gather to eat and visit. The children all go looking for eggs that are hidden outside. Some of the eggs contain candy, notes of prizes or money, or nothing at all. You should watch the children all run to find them. The Prize eggs or money eggs are hidden well. It keeps the kids busy all day looking for them.
My easter terdishon is evary year we go to church and then have easter dinner...Jessica
Every Easter I wake up early and go wake my parents up then we go find

door then the morning it was full of chocolate under the chair and the
carrot was eaten by a rabbit So we said that it was a rabbit
that come put the chocolate!!! antoine rivard déziel
I come from a large and very close family of Aunts, Great Aunts, uncles, great uncles and grand daddies of them all. For an interesting change, we, the kids hid the eggs on the 50 to 80 year old adults. It was the longest egg hunt in history. Stark
On Easter morning in our house, we would first wake up and find where the Easter bunny hid our baskets. After everyone found their baskets, we would have a wonderful Italian breakfast that was part of a long-standing family tradition on my father's side. The breakfast consists of colored Easter eggs, of course, a sweet cheesecake called Pot Cheese Pie, proscuitto, fresh mozarella, ricotta salad, hard salami, and cream puffs. I know it sounds bizarre, but it is so delicious! Afterwards, we get dressed in our New Easter outfits and go to church. At around 1:00 PM, we always have a big dinner, consisting of an Italian first course (usually home made raviolis or pasta) with antipasto, then we have a ham dinner with all the trimmings. It's my favorite holiday! Happy Easter to all! Marie
In the morning I wake up early because I am always hyper. And I make unnecessary noises to try to wake my parents. When they do wake up they close our doors and hide the eggs. Then when they are done they come to wake my sisters and brothers then they line us up vertically then they "Ok, Go!!!!" We run then when the eggs are found we look at who has the most then my parents add more to ours to make it even. Then we go to out dinner seats and we find a basket with alot of chocolates and candy. Then we eat Hot Cross Buns. It's the best. Brittany
I have worked on many retreat weekends and on Sunday morning the breakfast
table is decorated with a plastic egg. Inside the egg is the
When all things are emptied from the egg, the egg represents the empty tomb found on the third day. Linda
When I was a child we always put our hats under our beds for the Easter
Bunny to fill. I don't know where the tradition came from but I know
that my Mother did this also when she was a child and she is 71 years old.
In reply to the easter eggs under the bed tradition. In the 1500's in Germany, the children would make a nest for the easter eggs. The girls would use their bonnets and the boys their hats....Kevin
We decorate a small potted Fir tree (the one used at Christmas) with yellow and green decorations that the children have made. At some stage during the Easter weekend we read the Easter story together and talk about the links between Christmas and Easter. Then we get to eat the Easter eggs!! Weston Family
We always put our hat under our beds for the Easter Bunny to fill with Easter eggs and candy. I have yet to find anyone else who did this and was wondering where the tradition came from? michelle
I happen to love hiding and finding Easter eggs. It was one of
the fun things I got to do growing up. Now, I like to let the grandkids
help me. I buy the plastic eggs
