My Fondest Easter Memories

by Jacqueline Whitmore

While I was cleaning out my closet today, I came across some Easter cards that my dad and grandparents sent me approximately 40 years ago. I would call these “vintage,” wouldn’t you? Even today, I still love receiving and sending Easter cards.

I also found this picture of my brother, Rod, and me. It was taken on Easter morning 1978. I was 13 years old and he was 10 years old. I always looked forward to Easter when I was growing up because Mom (or the Easter Bunny) would buy us an Easter basket and a brand new outfit to wear to church. I remember this dress so well. I loved all the ruffles and pink flowers. I’m also wearing one of my first pair of high heels. I felt so pretty and grown up in this dress!

Here are some other things that remind me of Easter:

• Orchid corsages
• Easter lilies
• Golden Rain trees
• Azaleas
• Easter Sunrise Service
• A Passion Play
• Delicious Sunday dinner
• Chocolate bunnies
• Jelly beans
• Colored eggs

Since Easter is right around the corner, I recommend that you visit the Hershey’s Bunny Trail, where you can find Easter tips, stories and memories. You can also find some delicious recipes and great egg decorating ideas! What are some of your fondest Easter memories?

    Jackie, I remember this picture as though it where yesterday. The picture of you is great but I don’t know what is going on with me? When I think of easter, I think of you and I coloring eggs in the kitchen the night before with the tablets that you drop in the vinager. We where really quite creative back then!
