Happy Easter! Even though my family isn’t really religious, we still celebrate it every year. We spent some time yesterday dying eggs… my little brother was having a little too much fun doing it! We have these little plastic wrappers that you can put around the hard boiled eggs, then put them in boiling water to shrink-wrap them around the eggs. He ended up shrink-wrapping every one of his eggs to the little wire egg dippers (seen in this egg dying tutorial).. luckily we have a lot of egg dippers from previous years! And yes, we are technically a bit too old to be doing this… those of us dying eggs range in age from 14 to 25! (Well, my mom also did a few eggs, but I’m not telling you how old she is!)
Tomorrow morning we get to wake up and do an Easter egg hunt in our backyard… some traditions never get old, and for Son they are very new – last year was the first year he had ever dyed Easter eggs or done an Easter egg hunt! Growing up in Vietnam he had a lot of different traditions than those we have here in the U.S., so I have been introducing him to a lot of new things (carving pumpkins for Halloween, having a stocking for Christmas, dying Easter eggs, etc.). Later in the day we have a super yummy Easter dinner: ham, scalloped potatos, asparagus, and the best spinach dip in the world! (If you ask me nicely, I may just share the recipe!) Yum… I can’t wait!
So now I want to know, what are your Easter traditions? I have never celebrated Easter with anyone aside from my own family, so I would love to hear how your traditions differ from mine! Have a wonderful Easter!
