Easter is the day of Jesus’ resurrection. It represents new birth. The first part of Easter is the 11:00 Church service- now we can sing the Alleluia again. Some members of the congregation bring bells with them, and whenever that word is sung in the hymns, those bells are rung.
Now, after church and once our family is home, now we have to wait. We have to wait till it is time to go to Easter Dinner at 5:00. It is the regular group that we have for Christmas Dinner- minus the cousins. That made up about 17 or so of us. Friends- a lot of which are church friends. Part of it included decorating Easter eggs- we could use stickers, markers, and those bingo markers. Then dinner- I had ham, cheeses potatoes, and a roll with butter. This was where I got my Easter basket, and there was the cracker thing. Easter is one of my favorite holidays because of what it is about, and because of being with family and friends.
Not knowing when we would be back, I had to record the 2nd episode of the Les Misérables series- I was right- my family came back towards the end of it. Now I need to watch it in the middle of this week.
