Easter Gift Baskets
I’m sure most of us have many great memories of our Easter traditions as a child. My favorite memories were getting my Easter basket, having an Easter egg hunt and having Easter brunch with my extended family.
Easter is such a special time of year. I can recall fond memories of Easters past when my parents would hide brightly colored eggs in the yard and send my sister and I out to find them. What joy we had running around the yard, looking in every nook and cranny for the eggs we had hand decorated together the day before.
As I recall, whoever found the most Easter eggs always received a special gift, usually a dollar or two. That was a lot of money to us kids in those days.
After the hunt, we would get together with our extended family for Easter brunch. This was always the Easter tradition in my family. I can still recall the happiness and joy we shared as a family during those Easter gatherings.
