What is the best part about Easter?

As we ramp up towards the holiday, I think back on how exciting every holiday was as a child. It’s actually terribly disappointing that I no longer count down the days before each day in anticipation of the fun, candy, and presents.

So, as the week progresses I’m going to share some fun easter links and try to get back some of that blissful childhood wonder.

Here are some of the fun Easter links I’ve run across so far:


From Games for All Occasions by Mary E. Blain

Easter Day should be a peaceful, happy day of rejoicing, thanksgiving and praise to the Giver of all good. Easter is symbolic of a new life, and a brighter one. It is springtime, the sun shines brightly, and Nature smiles. She is rejoicing because her dead are coming to life again. The trees, the grass, the flowers all rise up in the glory of a new and beautiful life. Chrysalis and egg are not strong enough to keep hack the new life of butterfly and bird which rises skyward to rejoice, each in its own way.

One of the oldest and most characteristic Easter rite; and the most widely diffused is the use of paschal (Easter or Passover) eggs. They are usually dyed in various colors and people mutually make presents of them. There can be little doubt that their use at this season was originally symbolical of the revivification of nature, the springing forth of life which in turn is symbolical of the ascension.

In some parts of the country colored eggs are hidden in nests or in corners, and the children have a great deal of pleasure on Easter morning hunting for the eggs which, according to German folklore were brought during the night by the White Rabbit.

So, what is your favorite part about Easter?
