Flashback Friday Prompt

It's almost Easter. It seemed obvious to do this flashback next week, but I thought folks might either be out of pocket . . . or this might bring back some memories that you might want to do again!

What was Easter like when you were little? For example, did you receive a basket with toys and candy? Was the Easter Bunny part of your family's celebration? Did your family integrate both secular and spiritual aspects of the day? Did you dye Easter eggs. . . .and did your family eat them afterwards? Did you usually get a new outfit? (Post a picture if you have one!) Does any Easter stand out particularly? You might also share how your Easter today is similar or different to your childhood?

Post your Easter memories tomorrow and come link up here!

Growing up, we did all that...decorating eggs, new dress for Easter Sunday, family over for dinner, etc.

When our kids were little we gave them little baskets of goodies for Easter but that phased out as they got older.

We did all those things, too. We have focused more on our time with the LORD as a family the last few years.
Blessings, andrea

What I miss most is the days when as a mom I got to pick out a frilly dress, patent leather shoes, and hat for my daughter. Sigh, lovely days.

Great prompt, Linda! I can't wait to see what everyone else says tomorrow. I happened to stumble on your Flashback Friday JUST in time!

See you tomorrow!
