Easter is observed anywhere between March 22 and April 25 every year. Easter is also a special holiday for children with its own mythical character. The Easter Bunny originated from German Lutherans, judging whether children were good or bad.
Easter is a fun for kids. Excited children rush from their beds after dreams of jellybean trails and baskets filled with chocolate rabbits and Skittles and marshmallow peeps. They wake to begin the candy treasure hunt, following the clues left by the Easter Bunny. It’s so wonderful seeing the smile of a child when they find their basket filled with goodies.
Coloring eggs is fun too. It’s unclear where this tradition began, but it’s become an Easter favorite for both kids and adults. Some go for that perfect, one solid color. Some try to make their eggs every color of the rainbow, but if the colors all mix, a brownish looking egg is the end result. Write a message on your egg with a crayon. The dye won’t stick well to the area covered with the wax and the words become readable after the egg is dipped. This is a great way to personalize your Easter Egg or to claim it by putting your name on it.
Easter Egg hunts are also a favorite for young children. Some communities will organize large ones. It seems the mass of kids will stop to pick up the near by eggs. The kids who keep running to the other end find less competition and perhaps more eggs.
Easter is also a time for families to enjoy a meal and to spend the day together. It’s a chance to see relatives you haven’t seen in a while, to spend some time chatting, and maybe even watch some sports on TV. After the festivities end, some of us may enjoy a relaxing moment on the computer.
Whatever Easter activities you enjoy, we hope you enjoy it with loved ones. Everyone at CashCrate wishes you a Happy Easter.
