Easter Traditions

As my readers know, I moved in November to Virginia from San Diego. This will be my first Easter away from home. This has caused me to pause and reflect on what traditions my family has for the holiday and what traditions I want to create for myself.

At home, when I was a kid there were eggs to color which then be hidden throughout the house for me to find on Easter morning. There would be a basket on the table with candy and goodies from the Easter Bunny and an Easter card from my parents. Then there was church service. Later there would be a family gathering either at our house or at the house of a relative. My Mom would cook and dinner was always delicious.

Now that I am an adult living on my own I have to figure out what traditions am I going to create.
what traditions do you and/or your family have?

  1. Kristina…I just read this post and even though Easter has passed I thought I’d add a comment. My issue is just the opposite: for years I filled the Easter baskets, hid the candy, got everyone off to Church, made a big meal, etc. Now MY children have grown up, moved away (too far for us to be together for just a day), and have children of their own. To say our Easter traditions have evolved is an understatement! All of our grandchildren receive Easter cards with a treat inside (money, gift cards). The Don and I now invite friends for a nice Easter dinner (with ham always the centerpiece). We still celebrate but our traditions different…and that’s how life goes, I think!
