In the United States,(Las Vegas, Nevada) we love to celebrate any holiday! while many countries may say that we are rated the most "Confident", and not intelligent, we sure know how to party!
We love eggs, during this time of the year! Easter eggs consists of both chocolate eggs, peanut butter eggs, regular eggs and even artificial eggs, filled with candy or prizes!
We usually start off our day, with church! Celebrating the day that Jesus rose again!! Some walk around the neighborhood with palm leaves, waving it and singing about Jesus. After that, the easter egg hunt is on its way. The children runs around trying to find hidden eggs that their parents have hidden! The one with the most eggs found, wins! You win both ways because you get to eat or play with your treats and get another!
The other fun thing for me, growing up here as a little girl, during Easter, was the dressing up. I got a new dress, wore white gloves, a beautiful hat and pretty shoes with lace socks! As an adult, I still dress extra fancy and it makes me feel like a princess and child-like again.
Maybe that's the whole plan! To feel child-like and happy, while celebrating Jesus's arrival again!!
I just love Easter!
