In my family, Easter was a special family holiday.
It was quite a feat to outfit nine children, but somehow, we all
got a new outfit to wear to Church on Easter Sunday!
Our day started with an
outdoor Easter Sunrise service. Usually one
or more of us participated in the actual ceremony, since we we
all very active in our Church.
After the service, we went
back to our Fellowship Hall and fixed a
pancake breakfast for everyone! Then, of course, we stayed at Church
for the regular Easter Sunday service.
After we got home, we were allowed to check our Easter
Baskets to see what the
Easter Bunny had left for us. Chocolate was the favorite flavor of the day!
About 2:00 or 3:00 p.m., we had our family dinner.
Certain foods are
still associated in my mind with those dinners. We had:
Baked Ham studded with cloves
Pickled Eggs and Beets
Macaroni and Cheese
Carrot and Pineapple Jello Salad
Raw Vegetable and Relish Tray
Lemonade Coffee Iced Tea
