Well, I must say I was a bit of a loser when it came to decorating for Valentines this year. I. did. nothing. Seeing that my kids love holiday decorating so much; I decided I should pull out a few Easter things.
I am not much in to the holiday decorating that happens at the first of the year. I go crazy for those end of the year holidays, but the others just seem to be in the way of my decorating style.
I did it for the kids.
For these beginning holidays, I keep it simple; or I don’t do it all as was proof with Valentines.
As I wonder the stores; all I see is chocolate and more chocolate.
I love chocolate, but it makes me wonder what we are teaching our kids to celebrate when we celebrate Easter.
How does your family keep Christ and the resurrection in your Easter celebrations?
Our family has decided to keep the commercial part of Easter strictly to Saturday.
That means we have asked our Easter Bunny to deliver on Friday night. That way our kids are not digging in to baskets when we should be preparing for a special church service.
We also have our Easter Egg hunt, and egg dying on Saturday as well.
When Sunday rolls around, we can put away the chocolate and focus on what Easter is really about:
The empty tomb.
