EASTER TRADITIONS

The Easter Bunny fills winter hats at my house.
When I was child, the Easter weekend was spent at my Nannie Levy's. On Saturday night before bed, my brother and I set out our winter hats before going to bed. We never had an Easter basket, and for years I thought every child put out their winter hat for the Easter Bunny to fill. We always got a little chocolate and candy, something to play with, and a new pair of sneakers or other needed clothing.

For the last few years I have been flying to Alberta to spend Easter with my brother and his family. I didn't go this year, as my oldest niece is in Cuba on a school trip, and Rob and I plan on spending Christmas there this year. I didn't know I was going to have a broken foot for Easter this year, but I am thankful I'm not traveling with it.

Rob's been amusing me this weekend by partaking in some Easter requests. On Good Friday we coloured eggs. This is something I always do when in Alberta. And last night we put out our winter hats before bed to see if the Easter Bunny would come, he did!

Rob and I coloured eggs on Good Friday.
Have a wonderful Easter everyone!

NOTE: Looking back at older blogs I realized I had blogged about the "hat basket" tradition in 2014.
