Annie at My Life As Annie is having her Time Travel Tuesday and this week it is about Easter. Growing up Easter was ___________.
Something unique about our Easter Celebration was a wire cross our church had. It was always standing up on the floor in the center of the isle at the front of the church as bare as can be Easter Morning. Every child would bring a spring flower and at a certain point during the ceremony, we would go up to the cross and fill it in with the beautiful flowers. Mine were always roses from a neighbors yard. Ironically, the woman who owned the rose bushes kind of scared me, but she always allowed me to get these Easter roses.
We usually ate at my Grandparents house after the service and yes - I was dressed to the nines...usually something pastel colored and chiffon. It was always a very formal dinner.
One year, when Mom and I dyed Easter Eggs (real ones), I was so proud of a lavender one I made, I hid it, so no one would eat it. I hid it in my desk. A few days later, Mom was going crazy trying to hunt down what smelled so bad! Who knew??
