Easter 2013 was overall, a lovely day. There were, of course some hectic moments at certain points, but the funny thing about looking back is that those memories fade away; and what I remember most is the sweetness, children’s laughter and excitement, and nice weather from that day.
This was a year of Easter firsts: Meg’s first time dyeing eggs, first time getting an Easter basket, and first time participating in an Easter egg hunt. We also had a photo shoot with her in her Easter dress as she marveled over the pink Easter basket grass and a little bunny that came with her basket.
One thing I like about Easter is that it still has a sense of old-time traditions. The PAAS egg coloring kit doesn’t look like it has changed much since I was a kid. And though this generation of kids don’t seem to get excited over certain simple things like we used to, it’s joyous to see them excited over some of the same things we used to love: coloring Easter eggs and hunting for Easter eggs.
The family put together a backyard Easter egg hunt for the little ones in the family.
It’s come to be known as Resurrection Day by many churches; and of course utmost respect goes to the modern-day Christian observance of Easter.
According to some Easter reading/research I did, the origin of Easter centers around the fact that bunnies are extra fertile around Spring time and give birth to lots of baby bunnies. That is why Easter eggs are traditionally dyed bright, Spring colors.
I had a lot of pets growing up, but never a bunny. They seem like they are friendly and wonderful pets for children, and they definitely make beautiful, artistic subjects for a variety of items room decorations:
