Our Easter Traditions

by Vanessa
(Indianapolis, USA)


Hi,

Much as we love Easter Eggs and all the fun side of Easter, as Christians, our Easter Traditions tend to be more focused on the Lord, and our church community.

Our family has always been very active in the church, and prior to Easter my Mom and my Sisters and my Sister-in-Laws all get together to make Easter Baskets. We collect donated goods for months leading up to Easter, and then spend some wonderful days together assembling and decorating the Easter baskets.

Then over Easter, each family (including all the children) take the baskets and donate them to people in the community that we know are struggling in some way. That way we feel we are teaching our children to give and take care of our fellow neighbors. My children also make cards to put with the Easter Baskets.

For us the love of Jesus, and the strong bond as a family always seems more meaningful at this time of year.

Of course we also attend several church services, and celebrate the resurrection of Christ with a community Pot Luck, where we all gather in the Church hall and share our food and thanks.

Our children do of course get Easter Eggs, but I feel they understand the real meaning of Easter, and have enjoyed giving, rather than just wanting the goodies.

I'd like to end with one of my favorite prayers, from the New Saint Joseph People's Prayer Book:

Lord,
the resurrection of Your Son
has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.

Blessing on you all this Easter

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
