Easter memories…

“He is risen”, “In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it…..” Indeed Easter was (is) a time to shout hallelujah! If there was any time during the year that almost all members of the family enjoyed new clothes, it was Easter. There’s a spiritual metaphor in wearing new clothes, but it didn’t occur to me when I was a child. I thought that getting all dressed up for Easter was pretentious though I didn’t know what pretentious meant at the time. I rarely ate the Easter eggs, but loved the thrill of finding them hidden in so many places. Some of the beautifully colored and decorated works of art would rot before we found them. It was the smell of rotten eggs that gave way their hiding places. Our parents rarely did a “sweep” to insure that all had been recovered. Memories of so long ago!
