Easter is this coming Sunday and some of our Blink authors share their family traditions! Keep reading below…
Do you and your family have any Easter traditions?
Alison Gervais: Yes! We go to 9 am mass at our local parish all dressed in our Sunday best, and afterward we spend the rest of the day enjoying family time, a nice dinner, and of course an Easter egg hunt for all my adorable nieces and nephews.
Ashley Royer: I usually go over my grandparent’s house for dinner. We have a little Easter egg hunt, and it is usually mostly money. One egg has $20, I think I found that egg once!
Heather Maclean: We do an elaborate hunt for Easter baskets with clues that vary in difficulty according to your age: anywhere from a riddle to a clue written in binary code. Then we have a team competition, like a mini Amazing Race, where you have to shoot baskets, melt clues frozen in ice, look for the single red Cheerio in a giant box–fun stuff like that.
McCall Hoyle: We love to dye eggs, hide them, and hunt them in the woods and yard behind our house. We go to church and get together as a family–great eating ensues.
Stephanie Morrill: We enjoy church as a family, and we hide eggs for the kids. One of our kids isn’t able to eat candy, so stuffing Easter eggs has become a bit more of a challenge than it once was. Then we have a nice dinner with my parents and my husband’s parents, since we’re fortunate enough to have both families in town. Easter is always a fun, celebratory day.
