Easter in Anderson

Easter Sunday, the day we celebrate the resurrection of Christ. It is a day where family and friends get

together and eat ham and deviled eggs. A day to eat candy. It is a holy day but also a “commercial day.

By that I mean we also celebrate the Easter bunny. It is almost like Christmas. Children wake up early to

see what the Easter bunny left them in their Baskets. The baskets are filled with brightly colored eggs

and enough candy to send them into sugar shock. After seeing what is in the basket families dress up

and go to church. After church they get together with family and friends and eat dinner. The rest of the

day is filled with children playing and adults talking and telling stories. The weather today has been

perfect for playing outside. The sky is bright blue with White puffy clouds. The sun is shining so bright it

is blinding. The breeze is warm and inviting. The sound of the breeze through the trees is calming. The

sound of children laughing and playing fills the air. It is a reminder of how wonderful life can be. Today

Mother Nature is in a good mood and has made everything beautiful.
