Easter is here, so that means that this is one of the only days of the year, where it is acceptable to eat pounds of chocolate like it is nothing. I have already received four chocolate bunnies, and I haven't even left my house yet.
I love Easter so much, because it makes you feel good inside. The weather is nice, so you can wear short sleeved shirts, and even shorts, unlike Christmas, but not unlike last Christmas with its 65 degree day. Its spring by this point, so the sun is out, and usually nothing but blue skies all around on this day.
I'll tell you what we do as a family. First off we wake up, and me and my sister open up our Easter baskets. Then we get all dressed up and go to church. Then we get in the car, and go to my cousins house out in Suffolk, to go hang out for like seven hours and to have dinner with them. Our Easter dinner is made up of Ham, Pirogies, Carrots, Cauliflower with Cheese, some salads, and some other vegetables.
Also something that is a lot of fun, is that me, and my cousins Mack and Connor, who we three are almost 19, then 17 and a half and then 16, go out into the big field across the street from their house, and lay about 150 eggs, for all of our younger cousins to go and find. There are assortments of small change, candy, and other small trinkets inside. Then we sometimes play some basketball outside of their house between the now generation of men, and the previous generation of family men. It is a lot of fun. We also like to sometimes after that, watch real people play Basketball, whether it be in the Tournament, or in the NBA.
We have a lot of fun on Easter, and I think everyone should. Easter is a great time of the year, and should be celebrated as such, with family and with friends. I will be updating this blog post later on, with pictures from the day. Stay tuned!
Anyways, I hope that everyone has a great Easter Sunday, and a great break this week... if you have one!
What do you do on Easter Sunday? What kind of traditions do you have? Which one is better, Easter or Christmas?
