The multi-colored peeps and tooth-achingly sweet Cadbury Eggs are everywhere which means one thing- Easter is around the corner
Do you have plans for the upcoming holiday weekend? I am planning on enjoying brunch with some lovely friends, although I will be missing my mom’s juicy Easter spread. She makes one mean Easter Ham, glazed with honey and apricots. It’s funny- even though I am not religious by any means, I still a small fondness for this religious holiday. I guess attending a private school when I was younger really ingrained the uniqueness of this weekend.
But, when I look back, it wasn’t the church ceremonies or religious gatherings that made this holiday so special; it was the laughter, the light, the sunshine, the green outdoors, and yes, the food. All of those components made Easter more fun than I could imagine as a child. I hope that this weekend, regardless of you religious practices, you get a healthy dose of all the above.
