An open tomb

What is your tradition for celebrating this holiday? In our family we celebrated Easter by going to church dressed in our new outfits bought just for the occasion. I remember frilly dresses and gloves and hats when I was a child and always new patent leather shoes. Boys got decked out in the always correct navy blue blazer with gold buttons, the style never changed and those jackets got handed down to younger brothers and cousins. After church we would go on a picnic taking fried chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs and angel food cake to be eaten with strawberries. We would take along the several dozen Easter eggs that we had dyed in rainbow colors. We hid them over and over until they were cracked and sandy. Then we would find a creek and toss them on rocks to break them to feed turtles and minnows. At the end of the day we came home tired, happy and thankful to God for family times spent together.
