The Easter Bunny And Other Holiday Traditions
Has celebrating the holiday become too stressful?
Each week in Moms Talk, our local council of been-there-done-that moms debate issues, give advice and share solutions to common parenting dilemmas. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a question about easter traditions.
It’s Easter time. Yellow peeps have lined the store shelves, Easter egg hunts have cropped up in the county, and let’s not forget that the Easter Bunny rearing his furry head in our local malls. My family didn’t make a big deal out of easter baskets or peeps, but we did have a tradition of cooking a big meal and cleaning our house from top to bottom. Sometimes it was a lot of work. For some families there may be a lot on the to-do- list this weekend to celebrate the holiday.
Has preparation for the holiday become too stressful? Do your kids insist on certain items for their Easter basket? What do you do if extended family members want to celebrate in a different way than you are used to? If Easter is not part of your family’s faith tradition, what do you during the spring break?
