Hallmark has all kinds of great things to celebrate Easter with, everything from candy to cards. They also has other gifts that allow you to get creative with your gift giving too.

I am in love with Hallmark Recordable Storybooks. They sent me one before Christmas that I gave to my grandmother to record.  It is recorded herself reading the Christmas story and I treasure it.   My grandmother was the one Christian influence in my life for many years, so to have her reading and teaching my kids is awesome!  I know that while she is still alive now, one day she will not be, so this means so much to me. It lives on a shelf in my room, so my kiddos can read/listen whenever they want but it is safe.

Hallmark also has Hallmark Recordable Storybooks for Easter. They are $29.95 and worth every penny.  They are perfect for relatives who live far away, military overseas, or any parent who wants to record a story for their child. On Easter morning, you can tell the child you love how much you love them with “Guess How Much I Love You” and “Counting Kisses” or surprise them with their favorite bedtime story — “Goodnight Moon” — featuring your voice.

You have to open the book record functions with a screwdriver, then shut it back. This keeps the recording safe so you don’t have to worry about your child recording over the voice. These are so precious and such a great gift.

A few other things Hallmark offers for Easter or any occasion:

  • Greeting or  Easter Postage-Paid Greetings ($2.69 – $3.99). These greeting cards are perfect because they include everything you need! The postage is already included.
  • “Don’t Pull My Ears” plush Donald Duck ($29.95). It waddles and flaps his arm in sync to a lighthearted song until he’s picked up by his bunny ears or head. Then his wings and feet move faster while he squawks, “Hey, Put me down!”
  • Totally Ticklish Duck ($29.95) is another fun Easter gift. Totally Ticklish Duck keeps singing a song until tickled under her wings – then her song changes to giggles and her wings flap faster. The longer you tickle, the more she laughs. When the tickling ends, she starts singing again. This duck is adorable and will have your child laughing with it for hours.

(The two plush toys can be picked up for $14.95 at any Hallmark when you buy (3) greeting cards)

Win it ALL!

One Southern Savers winner will win a huge package with everything listed above.

    • Trisha

      We enjoy coloring eggs together. We also get together with a wonderful family and have a huge egg hunt for the children. It is a great time of food and fellowship.

    • Heather

      We hide the Easter baskets and have an Easter egg hunt every year that leads them to their baskets. The only obstacle is making sure the dogs don’t find the candy filled eggs first!

    • Jamie

      Easter was always about Church growing up, and we’re starting the same with our daughter. It starts on Holy Thursday, when we remember the Last Supper, the importance of Jesus’ washing the feet of the Apostles, and the First “Communion”. On Good Friday we remember His death by hearing the Passion in the Gospels, and walking the “Stations of the Cross”. Then Sunday is JOY JOY JOY. Singing joyful songs at Church, then being with family, hunting for eggs, and eating a huge meal (all things should begin and end with food….LOL). My mom always makes rice pudding. I don’t know how that relates to Easter, but it is SOOOOO good!

    • Kim

      We started a new tradition last year of making the marshmellows wrapped in crescent rolls, once baked the marshmallows disappear like Christ was not in the tomb! He loved doing it last year! We will be doing a new twist on an old tradition starting this year. We will be dying our Easter eggs with all natural ingredients, since he is intolerant of food dyes… Really excited to try it and see how it comes out!

    • Jessica L

      My favorite tradition is hiding Easter baskets around the house, just like my parents used to do for us. I would especially love to win this book, as my mom (my girls’ grandma) is very sick and I’d love for her to record a book as a memory for my girls.

    • Mari S

      My favorite memory of Easter was my whole family on my Moms side going camping together. We would have my aunts and uncles and all of my cousins together. Our parents would put our Easter baskets right outside our respective tents and when all the kids woke up, we would see our baskets that the Easter Bunny filled for us. We ate a huge breakfast consisting of eggs, french toast and home fries all prepared on cast iron skillets. After breakfast we would go to the lake to swim and relax. My cousins and Aunts and uncles live in other states now, but every Easter we still come together to continue our camping tradition.

    • Ashlee

      We take a family picture. We hunt Easter eggs a lot. The kids love hunting the eggs.

    • Susan

      We love going to church, enjoying a great family meal, and looking at our Easter Baskets. My dad still fills Easter baskets for all 4 of us adult kids!

    • BethB.

      One of my favorite traditions is dressing my girls up in new Easter dresses to go to our morning Easter celebration service at church.

    • Hope

      Our Easter tradition is to put a cross in the front yard every year the month before Easter. The children are in charge of changing the color of cloth when it is time. Each Easter Sunday, we dress the cross in white and take a picture of the kids dressed up before church next to the cross. I cherish this tradition…

    • Brandy B

      just spending time with the family

    • Laurie

      We love hiding Easter Eggs after church on Easter Sunday!!

    • Jessygood1

      easter egg hunting in the dark with flashlight and glow eggs

    • jenspilk

      my parents always put doughnut holes in some of the eggs that we'd hunt around the house. we still do it as adults :-) we're starting the Resurrection Eggs tradition with our daughter this year.

    • Ari0429

      A favorite Easter tradition we have is to make 'blown' art eggs. Use a needle to puncture a real egg on both ends and then blow out the insides. Allow to drain and dry and then paint, glitter, and glue. You can use a large needle to string ribbon through so that they can hang. So pretty.

    • Grayhawg

      although my kids are getting older they still look forward to eating at their grandparents with aunts,uncles,and lots of cousins. Then we have a big egg hunt with a very special “golden” egg.

    • Lnorth2508

      The annual Easter Egg Hunt for the family kids. Some has money, some has candy! And there is a Golden Egg too with a special prize

    • Karen Hall

      We spend every Easter afternoon doing an egg hunt with our best friends and their children. There is a golden egg with $1 in it for each child and they love trying to find their golden egg!

    • Nicole

      We have always loved hiding/finding Easter Eggs, and with my kids once the first Easter Egg Hunt starts, we almost have daily Easter Egg Hunts at our house, indoors are even fun! Then we all head to church on Easter, have breakfast and an Egg Hunt, then celebrate Easter with family and friends.

    • Momintally

      We enjoy a local beeping Easter egg hunt! My son is blind and loves his Night Before Christmas Hallmark book from his Grandma. She recorded each page, and he listens to it at least a few times every week. We would love an Easter one for her to record for him when she visits us for Easter!

    • As my daughters are now 12 and 18, the traditional egg hunt at my parents' house has been suspended for a couple of years and I really miss it. Now, though, my older daughter just had a beautiful baby boy and I can't wait to start the traditions all over again.

      Being able to give my new grandson a book with my voice reading the story to him – that would be so wonderful!

    • Trail19

      My family attends Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Saturday services together every year. In my opinion, it is the most beautiful time in the church and a strong reminder of the reason of the season.

    • Brookeapalmer

      This will be our FIRST Easter as a Family :) I would love to make reading her recordable book part of out Easter Tradition. We always go to grandmas for Easter Dinner too.

    • Jennifer

      We read the Easter story while having a huge breakfast before hiding Easter eggs in the snow in the yard.

    • Laray

      Easter egg hunts and the Easter story told in the plastic eggs.

    • Kimberly D

      Our Tradition for Easter is pretty simple. In the morning I make Homemade French Toast with an old recipe I have from family using real French Bread! I do this while the kids dismantle the Easter Baskets. We head to Church and then home again for Easter Dinner and Hunt. Eggs everywhere, scavenger hunt and dinner with baked Ham! YUMM, now I am stoked and hungry :)

    • Jenn3299

      My favorite Easter tradition has changed now that I'm married & have a family of my own. When I was younger, I loved getting up for the Easter sunrise service at church & the smell of all the Easter lilies that filled the church. Now that I'm married & have a son, I love our family Easter egg hunt after church. The children have so much fun! I love this giveaway!!

    • Kelly

      Every Easter my mom would make us Easter baskets that were as good as Christmas day stockings, full of goodies! She would always find us a really nice stuffed animals for every Easter. I'm talking about the nice, soft, good quality, keep them for ever stuffed animals. That was my favorite part. I have 2 kids now and am starting the tradition with them this year! I have a Pottery Barn bunny for my daughter and a golden retriever for my son. Beginning our Easter tradition. :)

    • JFHmom

      While this holiday is very special because of what it represents (Christ's death, burial, and resurrection!), these are things that I celebrate every day of the year. This year for Easter, my church is having a huge outreach event. I am excited to invite unsaved friends and family to this service as well as spending time praising my Savior!

    • Bamabobbie

      As I've gotten older just having lunch with my daughter and her husband is all that I need to have a Happy Easter.

    • Tjernigan

      When I was little we always had a Easter Egg Hunt at my church. Everyone would dress up and cook out. It was so much fun! I miss being young.

    • Bwensell

      Visit from the Easter bunny, Easter lunch with family, dying eggs, egg hunt! :)

    • A.L.

      I'd love to win! My favorite Easter tradition with my family was always getting together for lunch with extended family. Now that I'm married, I hope to make a new tradition with my hubby :).

    • Felene

      Easter is a time when we invite family over. The day is all about being with our family and remembering the burial and RESURRECTION of Christ.
      Too much ham is eaten, too many chocolate eggs are consumed, but it's all done with all the people I love. My children are about to start their own traditions, so I look back and think about all the fun we had when they were all mine!

    • Nicole

      One of my families traditions is to make Italian braided Easter bread with the colored eggs in between the braids. I remember this as a kid and I am following tradition by doing this with my children in hopes that this will be carried on from generation to generation. I remember coloring the eggs and getting the dough made, waiting for it to rise 2xs and then braiding it with my dad, getting it ready to put in the oven. I love doing this with my kids every year. Thanks for sharing this memory with me :)

    • Teach_ashlee

      My kids get to have an Easter egg hunt with all their cousins that live nearby. And we have dinner as a family.

    • Nicki Corum

      Now that my husband and I are proud parents, we will be starting our own traditions. We plan on spending time as a family, starting with a visit from the Easter Bunny and throughout the day doing activities and reading books that will reinforce the real reason why we celebrate – Jesus!

    • jennifer

      Every year everyone comes home to go to my Grandmothers house for the easter egg hunt. We have a grown up hunt and a kid hunt. There is a silver and a golden egg for each group! So much fun and a cherished memory for me. Especailly now that I am an adult and can go for the $50 golden egg! And hopefully my 2 year old will get the $5 golden egg as well (hey when your little $5 seems like $50)

    • Agape084

      sunrise service at cocoa beach!

    • Crystal

      Every year my three children and I bake and decorate cookies. It is so much fun and creates memories that will last a life time.

    • Nanasewing4u

      After our huge Easter dinner with all the trimmings, The adults “disappear “' outside to hide egg for the little ones.As each grandchild reaches the age of not hunting anymore they delight in helping hide eggs for the up coming ones.Lots of fun and prizes for the most, the least, and even a money egg! It's been a tradition for 10 years now and one I hope my children will carry on to their grandchildren.

    • Rthomas

      I love the Sun Rise service at my church!

    • Sandra

      All the grandkids come to my house the Saturday before Easter & we dye eggs together, then on Easter Sunday we have a family dinner & hunt easter eggs, I also make jello eggs for the kids for easter.

    • Sabatycki

      I've always enjoyed getting together with family at Easter…and the food! :)

    • Boisky3

    • Mirandac

      We have a huge family cookout with my grandmother's cooking and an easter egg hunt for the children. Then, we read the children's version of the Easter story and try hard not to fall asleep after the festivites are over (and our bellies are full!).

    • Moyerdz

      I would love to win this! My father-in-law and mother-in-law did the Night before Christmas for my oldest and would love one for my youngest. My father-in-law is very ill and doesn't have much time left. My favorite Easter tradition is hiding the Easter baskets. My Mom always did this for us growing up. One Easter my basket was in the dryer. I love hiding them and the excitement it brings to find them!

    • Coupongriffin

      Loved to watch my daughter hunt for the golden eggs at Easter. E.B. hides as many Golden Eggs as her age. Then later in the day we do a egg hunt with all the neighborhood kids.

    • Elizabeth

      Our favorite family Easter tradition is church with the entire family, followed by and afternoon of dinner, hunting eggs and of course making jello eggs from a mold.

    • Jess

      Such a great giveaway! Thanks! My favorite Easter tradition growing up was the moms hiding easter eggs in my grandma's yard, while the kids and dads walked to the elementary school down the street to play football. :)

    • Krystal

      My favorite tradition for Easter is something from when I was a kid, but my kids are not old enough for yet…..my brother and I would find all the hidden colored eggs when we woke up, and continue to hide and find them allllllll day long! We took turns, and this went on until my Mother forced us to finally get dressed up because we had to leave for dinner. My kids are only 6 and 3, so un-found eggs would not be a nice smell….but I let them do it with plastic ones for now =)

    • Kschmitz77

      Church on Easter is so refreshing. He is risen! I love early sunrise services and a big breakfast after!

    • Koalamom6

    • Dandscloud

      We have a big easter egg hunt at my mom's house every year after we have a traditional Easter dinner!

    • Easter Service…all dressed up. And then when you come home, who on Earth was in your house(or yard) while you were at church!? That silly bunny! :)

      PS…love the storybooks…my mom got one for my youngest for Christmas, as she is far away. Katy loves listening to Gaga read to her anytime! I wish I had my grandmas voice reading to me to keep forever! :)

    • Rebekah

      Church of course, just like every Sunday and hunting eggs!!!

    • Tcolley

      We are actually starting new tradition this year now that all of us kids have kids. Together we have 6 boys all under age 5! My parents are doing dinner and an easter egg hunt for the boys and we are all very excited!

    • Rachel

      We would all go to my grandparents house and all of us kids would sit in the living room while the adults went out and hide eggs all over the ACRES of land my grandparents owned. It took us forever but I'll never forget all the fun we had finding them!

    • Taclark97

      Our neighbor has a huge Easter egg hunt where we hide hundreds of eggs in a field and kids of all ages come from the whole area to participate. They are a special couple with big hearts and have been dear to me my entire life. Their egg hunt tradition is carrying through to the third generation…so far!

    • Elizabeth

      When I was growing up, our church had a sunrise service. It was exciting to wake up early in the morning and go to church. Then we all ate breakfast at church afterwards!

    • Lauramwilliams1

      Easter service is my favorite part of Easter. I love telling my kids about the real meaning of Easter

    • Amy F.

      Easter is one of our favorite family times! We love to color eggs a few days before. We talk about the colors and all the changes. We talk about how God changes us, too. We love to get up early on Easter morning… let our son enjoy the excitement of the day and have a nice breakfast together. We all have fun watching him find his Easter basket and talk about our love for Jesus and all the blessings we have in our life. We also make sure we take a family picture of the three of us in our front yard before we head to Easter service. This year, they're doing an Easter program that we're all very excited about. :) The Hallmark recordable books ARE great! We had one given to my son from his grandparents for Christmas this past year. It would be fun to win the prizes, too. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

    • Valerie Parris

      As a child my favorite tradition was we didnt hide easter eggs, my mom hid the easter baskets. We ran around the house looking for them. The best year was when she hung the basket on a coat rack and it fell to the ground, jelly beans every where!

    • Bkdupree

      We “hide” Easter eggs outside and let our daughter look for them. She loves seeing whats inside!

    • HNRMLR

      We always color eggs the day before Easter and then have an Easter egg hunt the morning of Easter followed by Easter dinner.

    • Jessica

      The whole family gets get together on the night before Easter. We always eat a big meal together. Afterwards, we clear the table and let the kids dye and decorate eggs. We tell the Easter story and then tell the kids about the Easter bunny. Early Easter morning, we hide all the eggs and put out the Easter bunny surprises. The kids wake up and go on a awesome early morning easter egg hunt and get all the goodies the Easter bunny left. Afterwards, we get dressed and head to church to celebrate the True meaning of the Season. “He Lives!” Happy Easter Everyone!

    • Humbird369

      Easter morning is our immediate family and we always have baskets and egg hunts for the hidden eggs. We also honor my husbands family tradition of placing your show out the night before so the bunny can put an egg in it when he hides the eggs. Then of course we have the family gather with the extended family and another egg hunt at Grandma's and Grandpa's house and their eggs have change in them! And if you find the gold egg – that one has paper money! A wonderful day filled with love and happiness for all. But of course we must remember the true reason for Easter- Jesus!

    • MaryJ

      I am the youngest in my family. And when I got too old to hunt Easter eggs, there weren't any babies around yet to do the hunting. So we recruited all the grandparents and other family friends who were 60-70+ years of age to do the hunting! It really was so much fun. One lady, a good friend from our church, said she had never hunted Easter eggs before and it was such a blast to see them out there running around for eggs! We did this for a few years, until my cousins had children old enough to hunt.

    • Lori

      Church of course! But I can never get away without hiding eggs for the kids to hunt!

    • Christy

      Making deviled eggs.. Mmmm.

    • Chelsea

      My favorite Easter tradition is getting together with my niece and nephew. We have a special night where my mom makes a big dinner and then we dye hard boiled eggs. We use the wax crayon to write messages or names on all the eggs and put them in the Easter baskets. It is so fun and my nephew LOVES to eat his hard boiled egg right away :)

    • brook0405

      After having children and so little family in the area we try to still keep the same traditions we had as a child. We do the Egg Hunt and basket hunt, then brunch.

    • Texasn8tiv

      We make homemade waffles and eggs for breakfast. We usually have an easter egg hunt with our youngest but she informed us that she is too old for this tradition. She wanted to stop last year but didn't want to hurt our feelings.

    • Sandra

      A new dress for Easter! :)

    • Angelmvb1

      The kids love the annual treasure hunt!

    • Katie H.

      My family is young and we are starting our own traditions. Our son is 19mos old and we have another precious boy on the way. I would like to start the tradition this year of going over what Easter is all about, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Going to church and visiting with family is always going to be part of our tradition as well.

    • Mebrnwll

      My favorite Easter tradition is dyeing eggs; it has been since I was a child.

    • Rlvhewett

      One of the things I do every year is color eggs with my kids the day before Easter and then have lunch on Easter at my parents house. When the children were little we would hide eggs for them. Easter has always been my favorite holiday because my birthday would sometimes fall on it (April 3). I always thought it was neat celebrating Easter and my birthday together.

    • Myra

      Church and hiding the Easter eggs for my grandchild and other children in the family:)

    • Cathy

      Sunrise service outside watching the sun come up over the dew soaked grass at my church and remembering what Easter means.

    • Lindsey

      We color Easter eggs a few days before and then use them for deviled eggs for Easter dinner.

    • We don't really do any of the usual traditions, but prefer to celebrate the resurrection without the feast and eggs.

    • Bethanyw723

      Easter egg hunts! We freeze the chocolate overnight that way it will not melt while outdoors

    • CynthiaNWilliams

      Going to church is our Easter tradition.

    • Rebekah

      When we were kids my grandfather would spend hours hiding Easter eggs. He would always come up with creative ways to hide them including digging up the grass. We would continue to find eggs in the summer :)

    • Jenni

      We live in Winston Salem NC so we go to Old Salem (Moravian Settlement) for the Sunrise Service. Our children enjoy listening to the Brass Band that plays as we walk through the cobblestone streets following the crowd to God's Acre. There we watch the sun rise and marvel over the gift of the risen Christ. We stop for a bakery treat on our way home and arrive in time to look for easter eggs in the backyard. The it might be naptime.

    • Roxanne

      Every year, in addition to having a traditional egg hunt, we also hide all prize eggs indoors. As soon as our daughter wakes up, she gets to find treasures all over the house. So much fun!

    • Shauna

      I LOVE this idea!! I sent the link to my children's grandparents for them to do this!
      For years… I have always decorated eggs for Easter and every Easter, my mom would make us our Easter baskets with eggs we decorated. (I have continued this tradition with my children now) Then, we would go to my grandmas house and she would always have an Easter Basket Treasure Hunt for us! She would hide clues inside of plastic eggs and each clue would be another clue to get closer to the Easter Basket!! We REALLY looked forward to this…

    • We have always participated in a family Easter egg hunt (even though we are now in our late twenties). My favorite memory of this was when my little sister didn't yet understand the concept of an Easter egg hunt and went around the yard picking up trash to put in her basket. :)

    • Jamie Ramsey

      Our Easter baskets growing up weren't just filled with candy. We got clothes, books and all sorts of fun stuff! I'm now enjoying finding fun things for my little boy's basket. These would be great additions! I also bought the Veggie Tales Easter Carol for my son and we've started watching it every year so that he will know the true reason for Easter.

    • My favorite Easter tradition is the Easter Pictures we take of all the kids and families outside under the dogwoods at my Mama's and at my Grandparent's before that. It's wonderful to have a year to year picture of our family!

    • Ana

      We are going to church for Easter.

    • Jennifer Clark

      Every year we put out empty Easter baskets for the bunny to fill (kind of like stockings for Santa). When the Easter bunny comes, he hides eggs all around the living room. My son usually has them gathered up in a neat little pile by the time my husband and I get up!

      Of course we also color boiled eggs and make deviled eggs after Easter is over.

    • Monica S

      As a kid, the Easter Bunny would always hide eggs in our family room and my brother and I had to find them all before we could open the things in our Easter baskets!

    • Cmeb126

      Getting pictures withthe Easter bunny in the fancy outfits!

    • Wndibrd

      We like to dye our eggs the night before and wake up before church and have our egg hunt:)

    • Bshannonvicars

      Easter is our favorite holiday…We got to church on Easter morning and then we come home and find what the Easter bunny left at our home and then we spend the day with family and just enjoying the blessing that God has given us.!!

    • Bigbuttercup82

      we like to color eggs & make jello jiggler egss the day before…then the day of we have a big egg hunt in the field by my parents house with a big dinner!

    • Abbeypsu

      As a kid all of the grandkids always had a huge easter egg hunt with eggs with dimes, and quarters in it. Whoever found the egg with the dollar bill had bragging rights until the next year.

    • Laura80

      We hide the eggs over and over again for the kids they enjoy it so much it gives everyone a chance to have the most.

    • Crystal

      Ever since I was a little girl we would all gather at my Nanny and Grandaddy's house and hold an Easter dinner and egg hunt. My grandparents have six children so most of their grandchildren are all within a few years of age. Now that all the grandkids are grown we bring our kids and even most of our spouses families over to continue the tradition. We have a big meal and then my mom and aunts/uncles entertain the little ones while my cousins and my self go out and hide over a hundred eggs for them to hide, after we have done this one of my Uncle's goes out by himself and finds two of the eggs and puts money in them. (We have two sections of the yard one for the babies and one for the older kids.) After the kids have hunted we let them pick out prizes and take pictures. Then the older kids hide the eggs for the adults to find.

    • Melanie

      My son is 1 so we are going to be creating new easter traditions this year. I can't wait!

    • Caroline

      Easter egg hunt the weekend before Easter at grandparent's house!

    • Hopkinsmomof3

      When I was a kid, we always participated in Leadership Training for Christ over Easter weekend, then spent Easter day hunting eggs with family friends. Now that I have kids, we can't wait for them to be old enough to spend Easter weekend participating in Lads to Leaders and learning to be active Christians.

    • Mendy

      i love these…they will be a great keepsake!

    • Kristin

      As a kid my favorite tradition was our family Easter egg hunt!! Cardbury and Reeses eggs!!!!!!! We did this every year- even after we were in college. My parents worked really hard to make some IMPOSSIBLE to find- so they would get some too!!

    • Darla

      We make resurrection rolls and recall the Easter story as we make and eat them. A marshmallow represents Jesus, who was anointed with oil and spices (represented by melted butter, and cinnamon and sugar which we roll the marshmallow in). We then wrap the marshmallow in burial clothes (a cressent roll), and place in the tomb (oven). When the rolls are done, and taken out of the “tomb”, “Jesus” is no longer there! Not only are the rolls delicious, it is an activity the entire family, including guests, can participate in and remember and be thankful for the real reason we celebrate Easter.

    • Red25033

      Every year my family head to church for Easter sunrise service outside. Then after church we go to my Aunt's house for a big family lunch where she cooks a big ham and a ton of sides and 3 or 4 desserts. After everyone has semi recovered from lunch we have a easter egg hunt. I can remember when I was little and after the egg hunt was over with we would climb up on top of the hay in the barn and count how many eggs each one of us got and trade what we didn't want.

      We dye easter eggs every year in fun patterns!! I've made my husband do that since way before kiddos, and we continue it now. We plan on incorporating the story of the Resurrection into their baskets – either with a book/DVD. Can't wait for new traditions!!

    • Kwilliams

      My nephew was born this past Sunday and this would be the perfect 3 wk gift!!

    • Callie Cramer

      We hide eggs with MONEY in them…the golden egg has a $20 bill in it!!

    • Kimmyo

      I remember coloring eggs and hiding them all over the house. One year we lost count and forgot a hidden egg…needless to say Mother found it later. It was so funny to us kids. Such fun memories!

    • melly

      we like to get all the kids , neices, nephews cousins all together for a great big easter egg hunt outside

    • Xraychik512

      Every year my family goes to the early service at church, then out for breakfast. Then everyone goes to my grandparents house for an easter egg hunt for the kids, and later we cook out for a late lunch early dinner. Just being with family and remember the reason for Easter-Jesus dying on the cross then rising 3 days later!

    • Struckdeals

      Growing up we always got new church clothes for Easter. Then my three brothers and I would line up before church to get our picture taken. Often-time my grandmother would make a matching dress for Mom and me and the boys would all having matching clothes. 20 some years later I suppose we don't keep the tradition, but I'm sure all of us will do something similar with our own children.

    • flower_mom

      I love the recordable storybooks. This is the first I've heard of them…You can guarantee I'll be checking them out! :)

      We have many traditions but I would have to say the kids' favorite is hanging the colorful eggs from the tree in the front yard. It just looks so festive!

      Thanks Jenny!

    • Tristarose1784

      My grandfather is a preacher, and we always go to his church and listen to his Easter sermon and then go back to my grandparents house for a big meal with my entire family, and then an Easter egg hunt afterwards. We all have our own children now, so we get to see them do the Egg hunt. My little family also starts off at the Sunrise service and breakfast at our church and then drive down to my grandparents. Recently they found cancer in my grandfather, and most likely this will be the last Easter I have with him. It will be more special than anyone before.

    • TheDostieFamily

      My favorite Easter family tradition is our family's Easter Egg candy and mony hunt! As kids there was always candy in some eggs and money in others. Not a ton of money, but anywhere from pennies up to a $5 bill! Now that we are adults, we still have it including the new grandchildren and spouses added to the family over time. Now the prize egg has $10 in it and it's hilarious to see my 42 and 41 year old brother and sister knock each other over to grab eggs :)

    • Leciamb

      We attend sunrise service at church, then sit down together for a feast! Afternoon is the easter egg hunt for the kids.

    • Samantha

      My favorite Easter tradition is getting dressed up in our Easter Sunday dresses (suit for my husband) and taking a family picture in the front yard before heading to church for the sunrise service! Oh, and we can't forget about the annual family Easter egg hunt!

    • On Easter we dress up nice, take flowers to church, and put them on a huge wooden cross in front of the church. After the services, families line up to snap family pictures in front of the flowers.

    • Amierenee

      Dying eggs, hunting them in the morning, and joining the kids in gobbling up candy for breakfast!!!!

    • Shawna H.

      Coloring eggs with my kids. Whe go over the meaning of the holiday and make sure to reflect on all our blessings. It is a great opportunity to reflect and rediscover when life gets so busy! We also plant flowers and spend some time starting our garden… it”s a great time to see growth and opportunity!

    • FreedomSpradley1

      Nothing beats the big dinner and egg hunt.

    • Jenichthus

      the cousins on the my mil's side of the family always do a game on Easter that is egg-related even though they're all grown and beyond “the hunt.” for example, one year, they hid eggs, divided up into teams of two, blindfolded one member of each team, and their teammate had to coach them verbally to find the eggs. great fun!

    • Carmanm

      We start with sunrise service and end with lots of egg hunting.

    • Tracey

      My mother always made an easter bunny cake. Now I make it with my kids. Another tradition I have with my family now is we go to the Easter sunrise service at the lake. I look forward to it each year!

    • Amy_parsons31

      We have a huge egg hunt where all the eggs are numbered. After the hunt, we line the kids up and they get to pick prizes in order. It's a bit chaotic, but the kids love it, and it keeps us all young, too!!! Afterward, all the family has a wiffle ball game in the back yard. There's nothing like a look on your kids' faces when they see the adults play, too. Although we all pay for it about a week afterward.

    • Sharon J.

      As a family, on Fridays, we will get something quick to eat and watch a movie. As the kids get older, that is getting harder to do, as they sometimes have plans.

    • colleen

      Our favorite Easter tradition is to include Resurrection eggs in our Easter egg hunt. Each child gets to find a certain number of eggs and stop to let the others have a chance. Then we all gather around to tell the Easter story using the symbols that the children found in the Easter eggs.

    • Lov_dew101

      we start with one egg that has a clue as to where to find the next egg, eventually the kids find their baskets after hunting for clues. they love this every year. then they end up having a easter egg hunt with the eggs.

    • Sellersyuma

      We love to dye eggs!! We dye them with grandma, daddy, and then an aunt. Anyone we can find who wants to dye eggs, we are ready! Then we enjoy the multi-colored deviled eggs the day after.

    • robin

      Our family celebrates the Resurrection at church and then we all eat at my Mom's house. Easter is my favorite time of year!

    • Kwsoutullo

      Our favorite Easter tradition is doing the resurrection eggs with our kids ages 5, 3, 2 and 1. We begin the first of April and enjoy it every night before bed. It is amazing what they can learn about the Easter story!

    • When I was a child, my mom and dad had a set of “special” Easter eggs…. they told the story of Jesus. From his birth (a small egg with a small blanket and a tuft of hay) to his death (a small crown of thorns and a purple patch of cloth). The last egg to open was a large white egg… it was EMPTY!!! Just like the tomb! My brother, sister and I still remember opening those eggs and hearing the story. And I can't wait to start that tradition with my daughter this year! So she'll know the true meaning of Easter!

    • Julierichbourg

      Family Easter Egg Hunt. Lots of fun for the adults in the family as well as the kids.

    • We get together for lunch on Easter. We eat and play with the kids, then we hunt eggs for about 2 hours!!

    • Carlateacher27

      I am one of 3 girls and one boy. Because we are a big family we could not afford fancy baskets so we would make Easter baskets out of shoe boxes. It was so much fun, we would color and decorate the boxes and they would look awesome. We would line them up on top of the stereo and during the night my dad would fill them up with candy. It brings back good memories.

    • lknieriem

      We have a fun-filled easter egg hunt.

    • Ashley Carter

      My favorite tradition for Easter is both going to the Easter presentation at Church and fellowshipping with my family afterward.

    • Acrows

      our favorite Easter tradition is dying eggs

    • The1irishgirl

      We started going out to brunch in our Easter finery! I love taking the little girls in their dresses. :-)

    • When I think of Easter traditions, I always think of my MIL giving her boys and now her grandkids Easter undies. The boys always got boxer shorts in their Easter baskets and 2 years ago my son received his first Easter undies in his basket from grandma. :)

    • Ajones88

      Watching the kids find their Easter baskets!

    • Felise_N_Toot

      I grew up in a military family. On easter monring my mom would dress us up in our Easter best and we would go the catholic church on base. We would do an easter egg hunt at the church and then go home to a lunch of dyed easter egg salad from eggs we dyed the night before.

      If anyone has parents who lives far away from them i would highly recommend the recordable books. We currently live far away from my parents (i followed my mom's foot steps and married a military man) and my mom bought my son the Christmas book and he absolutely loves it. He gets to hear Nana's voice when ever he wants!

    • Susan

      getting dress up Sunday morning and heading to church for Easter celebration.

    • Erinjburton

      My in-laws always have an egg hunt. You hunt 4 times and the person with the biggest total at the end wins. There are also special prize eggs. My father in law gives out the prizes $3 for the winner, $2 for the runner up and toilet paper for the loser to “wipe because you're done” Luckily, I've never 'won' the toilet paper.

    • Mara_maroney

      My parents would set up a bowl with clean water, and inside the water they placed one red egg, one yellow egg, and some coins. On Easter morning we would come and splash some water on our cheecks, for cleanliness, then we would touch the red and yellow eggs, and one coin to our cheeks, for health, beauty, and wealth. The catch was that the last person to do this would get to keep the change – and my brother and I were inviting each other to go first, every year!

    • Cdacheers

      Celebrating that Jesus rose again and having family dinner.

    • Cward1604

      We go to my husbands grandmothers and decorate eggs and wear Easter bonnets for the egg hunt!

    • My husband and I started our own Easter tradition after our mothers passed away. We sing in our church's choir for each of the three (3) Easter services, then spend time together (a rare and precious thing lately!). This year, we'll be welcoming our first grandchild (we're in Georgia, he'll be in Texas) and we look forward to coming up with a new Easter tradition that will incorporate our new grandson!

    • Caspertr

      We love having an easter egg hunt in the back yard!!!

    • Becky

      My favorite tradition is a new one: one that my husband & I decided was most fitting now. We have a recipe for a cookie that has all kinds of symbolism in the making and the baking of the cookie. It helps us focus on the real meaning of Easter, not all the sweet and the bunnies. The children love it!

    • tambry

      For my son, I will pull apart a few cotton balls from where the basket is going out the door. It looks like he shed a little of his coat on his way in/out.

    • Cherrycookin

      Having a big Ham lunch and then searching for Easter Eggs as fast as you can out in the yard :) !!!

    • MrsLaurenCraig

      My husband and I both love the Lord and come from Christian families, but neither of us have ever had a specific family tradition. This year is our daughter's first Easter, and her birth has caused us to look at things differently. We really want to begin our own traditions that she (and all of our future children) will cherish, carrying them with them down to their children and grandchildren. A few days before Easter, she is going to help (well, maybe just watch :-)…) color Easter eggs to decorate our home for the big celebration! We plan to fast on Saturday to remember the sacrifice that Christ made for us. Then, we are having a big Easter dinner here at our home, with both our families – surrounded by all the people we love most. I can't wait to celebrate Easter with our first daughter – and our new “traditions.”

    • chrystal

      My husband loves to hide the Easter baskets and make the kids search for them on Easter mornning!

    • jessica

      going to church (as always) dressing up in pretty dresses, easter eggs hunts and a HUGE lunch/dinner with ALL of the family!

    • Lori

      My grandpa always use to put numbers in the eggs and then we would go through them and he would call out the number and we would go get a surprise. You never knew what you would get. My daddy now does it for my kiddo and nieces/nephews. I love it!

    • Kellyn1867

      hunting for Easter Eggs in our pajamas!! The kids can't wait so we head out in slippers and ph's. Eggs are filled with cereal and sweet treats but at least they have breakfast before eating all the chocolate and jelly beans before service!

    • Jennifer

      I love hidding resurrection eggs for my girls and talking about the Easter story with them.

    • heather

      We always get together and decorate Easter eggs.

    • Gina

      Celebrating Jesus and spending time with family. We also like to find really werid places to hide Easter eggs.

    • Jillian

      Dying Easter Eggs!

    • Purpleeyeore78

      Our family uses the “Resurrection Eggs” throughout the week before Easter Sunday to tell our son about the true meaning of Easter. Then on “Easter Eve” our family reads 2 books before we go to bed: The Story of Easter by Patricia A. Pingry and THe Best Thing About Easter by Christine Harder Tangvald. We talk to our son about the real meaning of Easter and how Jesus died for us but now He is alive and waiting to come get us and take us to heaven. Then, before church on Easter Sunday, we use the final egg to tell him about the Empty Tomb. In the afternoon, we have an Egg Hunt and a big lunch to celebrate Easter.

    • mrenee5

      We get up on Easter morning and check out what the Easter bunny has brought for us and then we get ready and head to church!

    • Amber Risher

      Now that I am an adult and have a child of my own I would love to recreate a family tradition. When I was a little girl, we always ate with my moma's mother, Grams. My mother had only one sibling, a sister named Sheri. They were so close! Sheri vowed to always have Easter dinner at Grams' house. They always planned a special egg hunt for us kids. It was so much fun. My Aunt Sheri passed away while I was still young, and Easter was always hard b/c it was the one occasion we HAD to spend together. It was never the same after she was gone. I love spending time with my Grams and taking my son Noah to see her. I think this year we are going to do Easter at her house again, for the first time after alllllll these years. I would love to have her record her voice in a book for my little boy! :)

    • Stacielovescoupons

      Going to church, then lunch with the family and a big easter egg hunt.

    • Beth

      Decorating and hiding Easter eggs of course! Sometimes we dye the eggs, sometimes with use markers, other times stickers on plastic eggs. The plastic eggs then are around for months and are great entertainment to hide and find even after Easter!

    • Susan Canaan

      One of my favorite Easter traditions is dying eggs and hunting them together as a family. I also love going to church together as a family on Easter morning!

    • Babypiesahlin

      We have a Easter book that tells the story of Jesus and Easter. My two daughters and I read it together and enjoy the day together.

    • Sarahbsings

      Our family tradtion is to dye eggs together. Even the adults!! We draw on the boiled eggs with a white crayon and then when you drop them in the water the dye will not adhere to whatever you have drawn!

    • Kat51807

      My husband, daughter, son, and I go to a family friends house were the “adults” hid the eggs and all the “children” (even though most of us are in our late 20s) find them. They are all filled with money!! Which is nice; however, we have to take the “adults” out to an Easter Lunch and the leftover money we get to keep!! We have been doing this for 6 years now and it is fun running around finding the eggs!! It gets pretty intense with all of us fighting over the eggs!! But I love and look forward to doing this every year!! Plus we have two new additions that are coming this year and find eggs!!

    • Gina B

      After church we have a huge family dinner and egg hunt at my mother in laws…everyone comes out for this one!! Its one tradition we can never miss!!

    • Nicole

      One of our favorite Easter traditions is that all of the adult females in the family each get an Easter bunny cake to decorate. The tradition has evolved over the years. Last year, we had Easter bunnys with “bling,” hairbows, sunglasses and lights :-) Duff would be proud!!!

    • Helen Hue

      Every year, I knit a bunny for my daughter's easter basket. The one's from previous years live on the Easter tree during the season.

    • Cdltmerkal

      We hunt for our Easter baskets the moment we wake up. The Easter Bunny hid them when he filled them. We know it was him/her because she/he always leaves carrot pieces on the front porch with teeth marks on them :).

    • Laura Parkerson

      Our favorite part of Easter is dying eggs on “Easter Eve”. My husband and I always do a few secret eggs for the Easter Bunny to hide on Easter morning. It is always so much fun to see the reaction of my girls when they find the mystery eggs!

    • Dbaheckman

      Our favorite tradition is finding the easter baskets on Sunday morning. My mom always hid them around the house, and now I am doing that for my kids. We check out all the goodies, then head to church for the greatest celebration of love!!!

    • Snoopmoxtater

      Favorite tradition has to be dyeing Easter Eggs

    • Allisonking77

      I Love the family Easter egg hunt.

    • Angiemcalpin1

      My favorite part of Easter has to be the Easter egg hunt that my family does where the kids hide the eggs for the adults to find. It is always soo much fun!!!

    • Janhanw

      My husband's family is Mexican, so we celebrate twice! There are subtle differences, beginning with the Easter meal – we have ham, potato salad, macaroni and cheese pie, deviled eggs, and yeast rolls with my American family. We go to church, then hide Easter eggs. After resting at our own house for a short while, we head over to Abuelo's casa (my mother and father in law's house) to repeat. Some of our daughter's Tias will decorate the weeping willow tree with spring decorations and the grandchildren will run and play and hide eggs, blow bubbles, play with side walk chalk, etc… while the adults prepare authentic enchiladas…which taste NOTHING like food you get at a Mexican restaurant here! This kind of day wears us out – but we wouldn't trade it for the world! Wow – full of love!!! :)

    • Kimberly

      one of our favorite traditions for Easter is the night before making the easter story cookies . Also going to church on Easter Morning is exciting :-) .

    • Camiele

      We go to an Easter Egg hunt in the neighborhood every year.

    • Lissa_x01

      i guess our family tradition (not yearly just when need fit to do so) we usually give to others. i remember when me and my brother we little we were so excited about getting the easter basket the next morning. Well a lady's car broke down outside our house and they had two little kids, so the next morning my mom and grandma sat us down and told us what they did and we were okay with that. so from then on we kinda started giving for easter :)

    • Diannelee

      My parents have all 3 of their kids and spouses as well as all 7 grandchildren and 1 great grand child over for lunch then a huge Easter egg hunt. My Dad always wants to hide the eggs. One year he had us looking for hours for the prize egg. It ended up being in his pants pocket. Now we all make him empty out his pockets before the egg hunt begins.

    • Daltondoedoe

      After church, we gather at my husband's parent's home and have a huge dinner. Once we've eaten, the children hunt eggs while my father-in-law and my husband make our first batch of home-made ice cream for the year!!! When we've finished the ice cream, the kids HIDE the eggs for the adults to find!

    • Tammy

      The Eater Bunny hides the basket and my daughter has to follow the scavenger hunt to find it!

    • Guest

      Our favorite part is decorating the Easter eggs.

    • Doughrayme

      The recordable storybooks are wonderful for grandchildren. You can be a part of their daily lives whether you are near or far away! We treasure going to church on Easter Sunday then enjoying the rest of the day with family & loved ones! Christ is ALIVE! Yea!

    • Jennifer H.

      Blowing out eggs then painting them for a lasting keepsake

    • lynnzee

      We always hide my daughters basket and then it is time for the hunt with a little treats leading the way.

    • Hot Cross Buns are my families favorite Easter tradition. The tradition was derived from my great great Grandmother, but was told to me it was originally from an ancient Anglo-Saxons who baked small wheat cakes in honor of the springtime goddess, Eostre. After converting to Christianity, the church substituted the cakes with sweetbreads blessed by the church. We prepare them the night before and bake them first thing in the morning before church services. Yum!

    • an m

      Each year I take the kids to Michael's to personalize/decorate a bucket to use for Easter egg hunts. The day before Easter we dye eggs and we had them during the night and the kids can find them in the morning.

      Our favorite tradition is the Easter Egg Hunt at my father's home. It takes at least 30 minutes to hide the eggs and 5 minutes for the kid's to find them! Although we are still sadly rejoicing at my father's homegoing last year, we are continuing this tradition in his memory.

    • brooke lane

      church and an easter egg hunt!

    • Gellins

      My family always loved coloring the eggs. Even though my youngest is now 18 we still will color some eggs before Easter.

    • Kandi

      My daughter and I started a new tradition last year…….your Easter Tree! We had a great time creating it and will be doing one this weekend.
      Thank you so much for the great idea and new tradition.

    • Acaldwellgovols

      One Easter I came across a dress at my parents house and learned it was the dress my grandmother wore to their wedding. I tried it on and it fit so I wore it to Easter Sunday dinner at my grandparents house in TN which was a yearly tradition. It took my grandmother a few minutes but once she recognized the dress I was wearing, she was tickled. We took a picture together which I still have. She has since passed but I still had the picture and wonderful memeories.

    • Dixie

      We hide eggs with our daughter before the day, but on Easter day we go to church like every Sunday to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Usually a nice meal with friends will follow since we do not have family close. So the storybooks from grandmas or grandpas would be awesome!

    • Our favorite Easter tradition is watching The story of Peter Cottontail new/old version together on Easter Eve before the girls go to bed!

    • Kay

      Our family tradition is granny, Me, hides money and prize eggs every year. All the children get a prize…………. like water guns or water ballons something they can attack granny with. lol

    • Stacy T

      My favorite tradition, which I am passing on to my children too, would be the Egg Cracking game! Everyone in the family gets a hard boiled dyed egg, and we pair up and knock eggs together! If your egg cracks, you're out! And the winner goes on to challenge another winner! And once your egg cracks, we normally turn it around to challenge someone else until our egg is completely demolished! And gotta love Easter Egg Hunts and finding that GOLDEN egg with a dollar in it!

    • Watching Peter cottontail with the girls on easter eve

    • Jesstopher

      I have a tradition to go to sunrise service with my mom every year – sometimes it's on the beach! My family and I have a tradition of going to my husband's aunt's horse farm for Easter with his extended family. It's so fun to catch up with everyone and see how much the kids have grown over the year.

    • Jenniferandrichardtournear

      Our easter tradition is making sugar cookies and letting the kids decorate them. We have 4 girls, the youngest are my 3yr old twins and the oldest is 12.

    • Cecilia

      Even though I'm married and have my own child, I still get an Easter basket every year! I also love to dye eggs and go to church.

      My family usually gets together for a meal at noon on EAster Sunday and then the kids get to hunt Easter eggs. I love spending this special time with family.

    • My mom has 7 sisters and at easter we always make a huge cake! Inside the cake we bake a plastic baby Jesus. Whoever gets the baby Jesus in their piece of Easter cake gets the gift of hosting our family Christmas gathering! :)

      We have made homemade molded candies for years, but now all the little ones live far away…

    • Jen

      We love to attend the good Friday service as a church together, and go over what the true meaning of easter is with the family (aka not the easter bunny) – Although I do love taking bites out of carrots along the backyard path for the kids!

    • Heather Parsons

      Would love to win. On easter we go to sunrise service at church and then have breakfast followed by sunday school then church we bring fresh flowers to put on a old cross and make it bloom before your eyes as it goes from wood to floral. So special.

      My favorite thing at Easter is coloring Easter eggs with my son. He enjoys it so much and I love watching him!

    • Andrews07

      Easter is such a wonderful holiday….it is a day to truly celebrate all the hope we have
      because of our Saviour who not only died so that we could experience forgiveness, but rose again to give us His Life. I love the festive breakfast we have early Sunday morning….we arise early enough to not have to hurry to church, and have time to reflect on all that it means to be followers of Christ. We try to have the egg hunt for the grandchildren on Saturday, and that is always special too……I love springtime, and Easter together with springtime, drives home the idea of our new life!!!

      When I was a child, every Easter my family and I would go to my grandparents house to eat and hunt for Easter eggs. My grandparents passed away a few years ago and left their home to my husband and I. Our son turned two in February and we look forward to recreating the same Easter egg hunt my grandparents did for me when I was little, in the same backyard. :)

    • Same_12

      One of our family's Easter tradition is hunting eggs with monopoly money inside. We all count our money and use it during the auction my parents create. They usually auction off used things that they have or may have picked up at a yard sale. The catch to the auction is that you have no idea what your bidding on because it is cover by a sheet. Some eggs have a “free peek” paper in them instead of money. This allows you to look at whats up for bid before you do any bidding. My whole family comes to my parents house to eat and play “The Auction”. We even make a little “Senior Citizen” spot for my two grandmothers to hunt eggs. The funnest part of the whole day is just being together and laughing!

      • Paige

        Wow, That really sounds like fun. I need to remember this and/or copy it down so we could do this too!! It is much better than just candy!

    • Kelly Moore

      Our Easter tradition is the Easter egg hunt. Whether it is in our yard or sponsored by a group, we always hunt for eggs. I'm excited for my son to participate for the first time this year!

    • Michelle K

      I love making carrot cake (tribute to bunnies) as dessert for Easter dinner.

    • Mcordell6435

      My mom would always make a scavenger hunt throughout the house or the yard….clues in each egg to get to the next, until we finally found our baskets. It was always so much fun and as we got older….it was even more fun realizing how cheesy my mom's little rhymes were. hehehe I don't have any children yet, but there's no doubt that it's a tradition that I will carry on for my family! :)

      My grandfather passed away in November. That has caused my family to want to go back to the traditional holiday gatherings. Easter will be a wonderful family gathering of 20-30 people at my grandmother's. An egg hunt for the little ones. Finally, a huge spread on the dinner table. Just the way it used to be. I love it!

      I love Easter Sunday at my church! The choir always has a special resurrection song, and we celebrate Christ being risen from the dead! And of course, it's yet another holiday that gives us an excuse to eat chocolate! lol. LOVE the peanut butter eggs!!!!

    • Rubymommy1

      Ours is hunting easter eggs outside (if the weather is nice) and makeing a cake that looks like a bunny. Can't wait to do this with my little one.

    • Georgiawhitneys

      I remember always having to hunt extra hard for the Easter basket on Easter morning…that bunny was a good hider. I thought I'd never find that one in the dryer! :) Thank goodness my brother and I could help each other out. My kids are very young still, but I bet that Bunny'll get pretty tricky as they get older too.

    • Amandalynn6692

      I would love to win this for my niece who lives in Tx. Our favorite tradition is hunting for the money egg its the coveted prize in our family!

    • Paige

      My Mom always had an Easter tree. It was just a large branch from a tree she propped up in the corner. We used egg shells to decorate it. We had to poke two holes in the eggs (top and bottom) and then blow out the egg. We then decorated the eggs very carefully and put a string in the top to hang on the tree. If the eggs survived they lasted another year, but it was fun to make new ones each year!

    • tina

      this is our baby chloes first easter so we'll go to chruch, have a big family dinner, maybe eat some candy, and call my husband which is a truck driver and won't be here but we'll send a ton of photos

    • Lwatts17

      For Easter, I always make my son a bunny cake like the ones my grandmother always made for me.

    • Beccamcd1

      My favorite tradition is hunting Easter eggs with my kids and then having a big family dinner.

    • Lisa Stickley

      Getting together as a family and eating Easter dinner.

    • Doriskoi

      Mine would be taking pictures with the whole family. We pick a different spot every year. I would love to win this for my adopted grandson Johnathon. He moved 5 hrs away and I miss him terribly. This way he could hear our voices anytime he wanted too.

    • Mathdance0

      We would put our dyed eggs in our baskets the night before Easter. When we woke up in the morning our baskets would be gone. The Easter Bunny had taken all of our baskets and hidden them somewhere in the house. We would spend about an hour searching for our baskets, but we loved it!!!

    • Lee

      We head to church, meet extended family for big family dinner and then the teens hide eggs for the elementary kids. When they find theirs the elementary kids hide for the preschoolers. It's a lot of fun

    • Madelyn

      We don't celebrate Easter, but I'd still really enjoy winning this giveaway!! My nieces and nephews would be thrilled!

    • andreag

      We loved searching for the eggs the Easter bunny hid all over our house.

    • Di

      EASTER DINNER AND EGG HUNT…LOTS OF PICS

    • Jane

      After Sunrise Service we have hot cross buns, coffee and juice on the deck.

    • crs

      First I wouldlike to say for my family, Easter is the most important Holiday/Time of the year. Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus but Easter when celebrate that he died for our sins and that he rose from the dead. How simply AWESOME, to be so loving and forgiving. It is just a wonderful thing to share with my children. We have many traditions and special things we do but the one the kids love after coloring their eggs is racing with their egg on a spoon around obstacle courses. Every once in awhile we will set someone up with a raw egg and not a hard boiled egg! :)

    • amber

      we got my son FIREWORKS one year as a joke… it stuck! now we do it every year…

    • CJ Keenan

      One of my favorite Easter traditions is the Cross that we decorate outside our church on Easter Sunday. Each family brings flowers to contribute, and it's a beautiful display of what the day is really about.

    • CBrown

      Ah! I love Easter. We always got a new dress for Church, loved picking out a fancy dress as a child. Easter morning we would get our baskets that had a little candy, but more importantly— a new bathing suit (Florida). Then it was church and lunch at my Grandmother's followed by an egg hunt. I continute to carry-on the tradition with my 3 year old :)

    • TAA

      We don't have any real “traditions” – but I guess our tradition is to find a new or creative way to celebrate together as a family – attending the Passion Play or a walk-through of the Passion events, etc. Just finding a way to remember Christ's gift of salvation!

    • kkscarlett

      Our tradition involves Easter dinner at mother-in-laws house with all extended family and egg hunts for the kiddies!

    • Nocurtain

      one new tradition i have started this year with my kiddos is the resurrection eggs. each egg contains a trinket that helps explain the holy week. my 3 year old loves it!

    • Mcollins5

      Our family traditon is an Easter egg hunt at our house after church. It has grown to where other kids from the neighborhood join in and we sit down and share the Easter story with them at the end.

    • Michelle

      Lord's Day worship

    • My favorite Easter tradition is spending Saturday before Easter with family and friends. We have lots of food and an Easter Egg hunt for the little ones at my Nanny's house, we do this every year and my have times changed so many of us who used to hunt egss now have kids of our own hunting them. Then on Sunday morning (Easter Day) we celebrate the greatest gift of all Jesus Christ, our whole family attends church and we spend the rest of the day relaxing.

    • Candy900

      Every year my family gets together 1 or 2 nights before Easter and we let our kids (9 altogether) dye Easter Eggs that we then hide for them for after Easter dinner. It is great to get together not only once but twice in the weekend. On Easter we attend church and then go to my MIL house for a big dinner. We are truly blessed.

      I hope the coupons are good this Easter Sunday! ; )

    • Curlyqcatherine

      Coloring eggs and then eating them.

    • Justpeachy611

      This will be my first Easter separated from my family. Usually we all get nice, new Easter outfits and have an Easter egg hunt before church. We take family pictures on an old bench or underneath a pretty, blooming tree… I would love to win this book. My husband will be deploying in a couple of months, and we want to record his voice so that our three year old son and two week old daughter can still hear their daddy read them a story before bed each night.

    • Brycenjakesmom

      My family gets together and dyes Easter Eggs. My Mother always make the most delicious coconut cake! All the family loves it and it is extra special because she only makes it once a year!

    • Sheila

      When our girls were little, the Easter Bunny left a trail of jelly beans from their pillow, down the stairs, to whatever fun place he put their baskets. The real eggs they had put in them the night before were hidden around the house and replaced with candy and prizes, Now I dye real eggs with the granddaughters and usually make Easter cookies with them.

    • Janice

      We like to have a special treat for breakfast and check out the Easter baskets, all the children get one, even the “grown-up” ones! The grandchildren enjoy hunting for eggs in the yard and later in the house, too.

    • Brandi8984

      My parents come down since I moved from MI to VA. We love to have Easter Egg hunts in the backyard, my dad loves to put them around the yard in the morning and tells the kids that our backyard bunny, who lives under our deck, lays them for them. It's really cute!

    • blaire

      An egg hunt with all the neices and nephew and a big easter lunch

    • Megan

      we read about Jesus' death on Friday and then Sunday we read about His resurection. We attend church & then get together with other families who do't have family in town

    • All my Italian family will get together and have a big FEAST. We have 16 kids all together that just live in Fl. We do an Awesome Easter egg hunt. We put candy in some eggs, and $1.00, $5.00 in other egs and then we have the Golden Egg(which whoever finds that usually gets a $10.00 bill. So the kids def look forward to this Easter egg hunt. Then we proceed on to get everyone together for a family pictures that in years to come will have so many memories from it. Then the last thing we do is all sit down and say a pray and then we have a big Italian feast with the family. Its so nice to have such a great tradition.

    • Theaikenparrs

      It is a tie between the easter egg hunt in our yard and taking a picture of our little boys all dressed up in their Easter best!

    • ahowze

      My favorite Easter tradition is that my mom used to always make a huge bunny cake. We would always go to church on Sunday morning (as every Sunday), come home for a great meal including the bunny cake, and then go outside to hunt for easter eggs. My brother and I did this until we were out of high school. I have continued this tradition with my kids and plan to teach them how to make the bunny cake too.

    • Ddorrough

      Our kids are grown but we have two grandchildren and we have continued the tradition of the Easter Bunny hiding eggs overnight for the kids to find in the morning – if its cold or rainy there is a “trail” of eggs in the house and if it is nice outside – there is a trail leading to the door!

    • Voldoll27

      The easter egg hunt for all the kids! This year will be the first time for my new nephew. I love hiding them and standing back and watching the wonder on the younger ones faces as they discover their little treasure!

    • Shannon

      Despite being way past the appropriate age, my mom will never let us go without doing the Easter Egg Hunt…we once even had the eggs hidden in a car and hunted for them in a TGI Friday's parking lot! But my favorite odd tradition is how my whole family (parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, and now nephews and nieces) goes bowling every Easter! It may be a weird place to be on an Easter Sunday but a little competition and bonding over shared goals has always made my Easter complete!

    • kemdeals

      hiding a $10 bill in a “special” egg during the egg hunt!

    • Melissa

      Donald Duck is my absolute favorite! I'll have to go check him out, would love to win this! I like waking up to my little girl finding the Easter basket the Easter Bunny hid for her and we just starting a new thing where we leave the eggs out that we color and the Easter Bunny hides those too, so much fun!

    • Afretz1

      We have a cat with a white tipped tail. We dye his tail every year along with the easter eggs!

    • Melissa

      Growing up, we always went to Holy Thursday service at our church, Good Friday mass and then on Saturday morning we get up and color eggs. It was always a fun time seeing who could make the most colorful egg. On Saturday, we would get all dressed up and go to Easter Vigil mass as a family. I remember thinking when I was little that this was the longest mass ever. Now as an adult, and I fully understand and appreciate that mass. On Easter Sunday, my sisters and I would get up and run around the house finding all the “Easter Bunny droppings” that my dad had so graciously spread all around the house with eggs. It used to make us so sick because my dad would tease us and pick up the droppings and eat them. We would them see what the Easter Bunny brought us and then we would drive an hour and go to church with our grandparents. She went to a Methodist church and us girls love to visit there cause we got to go up front and sit on the alter while the preacher did a Childrens' sermon. Everyone would just love seeing us in our Easter dresses. We then would go to the farm at grandma and grandpa's and have a great meal as a family. All the men would go and lay down for nap time and all the ladies would clean up the dishes and then would go outside to investigate what flowers were coming up in Grandma's beautiful flower garden.

      As an adult, I am a very sentimental person. My family and I live about 1000 miles away from the rest of my family. Even though I have lived out here for 9 years, it is still hard at holidays, because I am missing those traditions. however, I have started the same or similar traditions with my husband and children.

      I love how you sent the Christmas book to your grandmother to record. We also got one this last year, and I have my parents reading the book to my children. They absolutley love it and truthfully, I treasure it more than they will ever know.

    • Annie-e

      Confetti eggs! These are hallowed out eggshells filled with confetti that you hide along with the other eggs during the egg hunt. After the egg hunt, you crack the eggs over one another's heads. Sounds crazy but it's so much fun!

    • Xmlucero

      Our tradition is making Resurrection Rolls. Great memories!

    • Csjsdangels5

      Getting the family together for food and egg hunt!

    • KLR129

      Easter egg hunt in the living room, because its just too hot outside in Miami! We hide the eggs in the couch cushions, etc. :)

    • LizS

      We teach our children (the grandchildren) the weeks leading up to Easter and then have a special celebration night on the week of Easter. Last year we talked about Exodus and the very first Passover and how it was a picture of Jesus, the Passover Lamb to come. On Easter, we go to church and have a big meal where we eat lamb in memory of what is being celebrated. We talk about Jesus and the life He gives. It's a rich holiday.

    • Janna H

      We would wake up while it was still dark outside Easter morning and drive to a scenic overlook on the Blueridge Parkway and have Sunrise Service with our church. Wonderful times!

    • NancyF

      We I was a little girl my father hide the eggs in the park for all the neighborhood children. Now I enjoy sunrise service at the beach.

    • Honeybeeforeman

      Easter Sunday dresses!

    • JNEB

      We always spend Easter Sunday morning at church withthe family and then have lunch at my parents!

    • We get up and go to church(like every Sunday) then after church we have a HUGE Easter Egg Hunt with our neighbors and a big lunch…about 20 kids and 10-15 adults. It is a wonderful afternoon with friends/family.

    • Heddabell

      We always spend Easter morning at Church, then Easter egg hunt, then the afternoon at a family picnic gathering.

    • Nicole

      We dress the whole family up for pictures and have a big family dinner. :-)

    • Alexusrydr

      Easter Egg Hunt!
      My in-laws put cash insie the eggs so that the adult kids go on the hunt too!!!!!

    • Agt_bama

      My favorite thing to do is watch my kids eyes light up when they find eggs with their favorite character on them. The family all gets excited over the egg parade at the end

    • B_atkins

      Our favorite Easter family events are: (1) Attending our Jesus is Alive Sunrise Service at 6:00 AM with our church family and after the service eating breakfast together.
      (2) After church going to pick up my 89-year old mother-in-law to bring her to our house to celebrate Easter with our family. (3) Having my children, granddaughter, and 89 year old mother-in-law over for a family Easter egg hunt and dinner is just fantastic. We have a great time. Everyone seems to really enjoy the Easter baskets I make for them every year. Happy Easter everyone! Jesus is Alive ….we have a risen Saviour.

    • Krysalcox

      Hiding Eggs with the whole family and having a big easter dinner. For us it is about getting family together and having a wonderful time. Of course there is the deal of always having to have a new outfit for church services.

    • Mom of all girls

      We spend Easter at Grandma's house every year. My kids look forward to Easter more than Christmas, which is saying a lot nowadays. We dye eggs, make crafts, make spring themed candy,and hide plastic eggs with prizes in them. My 4yr old loves anything related to mickey mouse clubhouse -especially donald. The storybook would be awesome, my youngest is at that stage where she wants the same book read over and over and over again.

    • Sha

      We have an Easter egg hunt at my granmother's and a BIG Easter dinner. My kids LUV LUV LUV Easter.

    • Rndondhc

      My house is “Grandma's house” that everyone comes to on Easter.We enjoy attending morning worship together then gathering for a big Sunday lunch of everyone's favorite home cooked fare. My children and grandchildren come home and we spend time together as a family and make lots of pictures and memories. Easter is a special day to remember our risen Savior and to thank Him for all the blessings He has given us–especially the gift of salvation through faith in His death & resurrection for us.

    • Leiaruff

      Each Easter I hide my kid's Easter baskets and have them spend the morning finding them with clues of hotter and colder. They love playing and it increases their excitment with every clue!

    • Suzy C

      At my mom's house, once when I was 6, the easter bunny “got confused” in our house and “forgot” to come one year. my panicked mom put all the easter basket goodies in the bathroom and threw jelly beans on the floor to show the easter bunny “has tummy issues too” so even as an adult, when we go over there for Easter lunch, we can always find our small easter goodies hanging out in the bathroom.

    • Monica

      My favorite Easter tradition has always been dying the eggs!!!

    • Vivianmarie244

      We always go to Easter Sunday church services. Then we meet up with ALL of my extended family for a family reunion at Sesqui Park.

    • Emily

      I absolutely loved the Easter Egg hunt. My dad would hide the eggs in 5 sections of our yard (one for each kid). We each got the same amount of eggs, though I don't know why it mattered since we'd put all of them in a big box and get to eat one a day (they were filled with mini candies).

    • Sonya

      I have always loved going to Sunrise Service on Easter.

    • Connie2588

      Our family's favorite thing to do is dig through our easter baskets, get dressed in our Easter dresses and head off to church.

    • lisia bjorklund

      We hide minies of liquor for the adult egg hunt

    • Jen

      We would get up early to find out Easter baskets my parents had hidden outside…then get all dressed up for church- Easter bonnets and all. :)

    • Chrisandjolind

      We love the resurrection cookies because they tell the story of Christ in a really fun and delicious way!! :-)

    • Deb

      First we all go to church together then we come home and enjoy a wonderful Easter celebration dinner with some yummy chocolate candy for dessert!

    • Ap17182

      We take pictures in our dress clothes. We do lots of Easter egg hunts.

    • wendy

      Just hunting eggs – nothing too fancy!

    • Meredith

      Easter was always an exciting time of year. After church my grandmother would cook a big feast followed by an easter egg hunt with real eggs that we dyed earlier in the week.

    • Rkonomos

      We meet up with my family and have an Easter egg hunt with all of the grandkids.

    • Pam

      Well since there are no more little children in my family…the adults have an Easter Egg Hunt. My Mom puts little pieces of paper with different things on them in the eggs, once we find all the eggs, we sit in a circle and 1 at a time, try to act out what is on the paper. The person who guesses the most gets a prize. Sure is a great day to celebrate Jesus!

    • Jojodunson

      The Easter bunny always hid our baskets full of goodies and the eggs that we colored the night before. After eating tons of candy we would get dressed in our brand new easter dresses and go to church. I love easter!

    • Deonna Crowder

      We like to color eggs!

    • Rachel

      Two of my favorite Easter traditions are dyeing hard boiled eggs and using plastic eggs to decorate an easter egg tree in our yard. I also know a family who would celebrate “Easter Bunny Monday,” and the Easter baskets were delivered Monday morning, reserving Sunday as a day to remember the true meaning of Easter.

    • Michele

      Easter egg hunt in the yard.

    • Shellyluwho

      We love the easter egg hunts and of course, dyeing the eggs!

    • Jennaspears

      We live far away from family and are pregnant with our second child (our son died right after his birth) , so we have always had lunch with special friends and enjoyed Easter eggs hunts with their children. We very much look forward to using the resurrection eggs and beginning our own traditions. I would love to be able to have family use the books to record their voices to share with our little girl next year for Easter.

    • Vicki

      My favorite Easter tradition is the egg fight that we have with the colored, hard boiled eggs. It's fun & an easy tradition!

    • Crystal Bishop

      Every year we invite our best friends and their kids over and we cook a huge lunner/dinner and then we hide eggs and all the adults and kids have to find them by way of a treasure hunt. It's so much fun, everyone, including the adults, have lots of fun and it's a good way of making the kids think and figure out puzzles to get their prizes!

    • Rachel

      My mom always made us Easter baskets and left them beside our beds so we would see them as soon as we woke up on Easter day. She handmade the baskets herself, and filled them to the brim with candy and little toys. She even made sure we had Easter baskets in college… Now I have a baby boy of my own, and I'll make sure he has his own special Easter basket every year (even if mom and dad “have” to help eat the candy at first).

    • Joenkim2004

      My Mom always made Easter baskets for everyone in the family. Now that she is gone, I try to make a basket for everyone and a person I know needs some encouragement in honor of my beautiful mother.

    • Liana6205

      We do a flashlight Easter Egg hunt the night before. We hide the eggs in a designated area and then the kids get their flashlights out and hunt for the eggs.

    • Sapphiresecrets21

    • Allyg24

    • Holfordl

      i love Easter Sunday at church. To see all new easter outfits and watch the children having fun looking for eggs put a smile on my face.

    • Melanie

      Homemade hot cross buns on Good Friday!

    • Nicole

      we enjoy dyeing eggs and having easter egg hunts. also reading the resurrection story and talking about Jesus.

    • Crozetcouponlady

      We always have Easter egg hunts for ALL ages in our family. We all line up from youngest to oldest and dash to find the eggs. It's amazing how fun it is to still find eggs…no matter how old we get! There's always a few “prize” eggs hidden too. We used to fill the eggs with candy, but now they each have numbers inside of them. You get to pick a prize for each egg (books, bubbles, games, and much more). It's SO fun!

    • Kim S

      I'm Jamaican so our tradition was to attend Good Friday midday service and then gather with friends and family to eat Bread & Fried Fish, and Bun & Cheese. Jamaican Easter bun is similar to a fruit cake. Now my family goes to service in the evening and we still have the traditional meals. Great time to gather as a family to remember (and celebrate) the best and biggest sacrifice of all – Jesus Christ

    • MeganD

      Our Easter tradition is taking the kids to my parents house where there is egg dying, Easter baskets, egg hunts and a big family dinner. I just love it!

    • Happymommy3

      We started a new tradition last Easter. Our church participates in a program that works with a new ministry in my town. Churches sign up to host homeless families with children for one week in their church. My church was the first week of the program and we got our first families on Easter Sunday. What a blessing they were and a wonderful way to celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior. It was so much fun having Easter baskets for the kids as the families arrived that day. Most of the kids has either been staying in a car or on a floor somewhere. The look on their faces were priceless. We have the families once every 3 months and it is something my kids look forward to every time we stay at the church with them. I encourage anybody to find a way to serve others this Easter.

    • Holly

      When we were kids. We used to roll Easter Eggs down our backyard with our noses. I never won, because as I would get close to the finish line someone would move my little sister in front of me. We would also do an Easter Egg hunt in our backyard.

    • Loranna

      We always decorate an Easter tree.

    • Christina

      My favorite tradition is getting my kids posed outside in front of our dogwood trees easter morning and taking pictures as I see them trying to spy all the easter eggs hidden in the yard.

    • Kathleen

      Growing up we always went to the sunrise service at our church and the e.b. would hide baskets to find when we got home. My oldest just turned 2 so I'm excited to start some new traditions with my own family! Thanks, Jenny!

    • Aem974

      My family's favorite Easter tradition is attending the Sunrise Service at our church.

    • Donna Sanders

      In our family we always dye eggs together the night before Easter. We go to church on Sunday and while we are gone the Easter Bunny comes and leaves plastic eggs filled with candy all over our yard. Just too bad that every year dad has to direct traffic at church and doesnt get to ride in the car with me and the kids!!!! lol

    • Vickib

      Our church creates gorgeous, flower-covered crosses each Easter. Parishioners, like our family, gather flowers from their yards that morning and bring them to the church. We take turns covering two large wooden crosses with every color and type of flower you can imagine! It is breathtaking to see the crosses carried down the aisle to joyous strains of music, and it reminds us of the true meaning of this incredible day.

    • Live4eternity

      We love to read the never-fading truth of the Easter story and make homemade hot cross buns. :-)

    • Terenanic

      We have pretty standard Easter traditions. We dye eggs and go on Easter egg hunts around town prior to Easter. On Easter day the kids get to see what kind of basket the Easter Bunny left them and then they hunt for the eggs the Easter Bunny left. Nothing outside of the ordinary, but it's a great time.

    • Absutton

      My son, husband and I make over 200 easter bunny rice crispy treats and choc. bunny lollipops every year and we give them to children in our neighborhood, school, church, local fire companies, etc. We try and give back to the community. We love doing this as a family! So much fun and it feels great that we put smiles on other kiddos and big kiddos faces! Easter is my favorite holiday of the year.

    • my3sons

      One of our Easter traditions is dying eggs the night before and then on Easter we go to my parents house for a huge easter egg hunt!

    • Ajawee83

      Hmmm…making resurrection eggs!

    • Angela

      My daughter's Nana and Pa have an egg hunt for the grandkids every year and there are special eggs that have money inside–the kids know to look for the green eggs!!

    • Erin

      Eating cashew meltaway eggs. I got a chocolate nut egg every year in my Easter basket.

    • Tracy

      We go to Good Friday service on Friday evening, enjoy fellowship & egg hunt w/ our church family on Saturday at the church fellowship, and celebrate Resurrection Sunday at church…And singing “He Lives” is a must!

    • Nancy

      We like to focus on the resurrection of Jesus Christ during this time of year. We enjoy watching “Special Witnesses of Christ,” which is a collection of testimonies. I especially like Elder Jeffrey R. Holland and President Gordon B. Hinckley testimonies in this video, which can strengthen any person's testimony of Jesus Christ, regardless of their denomination. Easter is such a wonderful time and such an appropriate time to celebrate all things living!

    • Traceyga2002

      Easter morning we enjoy going to a sunrise service. At home we hide the easter basket in the house. Sometimes this will include clues to follow that will include what easter is really about, Jesus.

    • Trisha4971

      We still get the kids' picture with the Easter Bunny and an on doing it until they are totally embarrassed by it:)

    • Kelley

      I am excited to start a new Easter tradition this year, as it will be our 1st Easter with our new son & his adoption will be finalized next week. Easter morning will start with a special breakfast made by my husband and then we will head outside for an Easter Egg Hunt. The eggs will include 'coupons' for special family time events like 1 hour of familytime sipping lemonade on the patio; a local sporting event of choice, choose your favorite dinner for mommy to make, a trip to the park, a family walk, a special day trip & you get to pick the destimation. I can't wait for the egg hunt ot grow into a huge special group of familytime fun!

    • Erincaudel09

      When my husband was little the Easter Bunny brought baskets to him and his brother and a filled an Easter platter with candy for his parents. Now that they are older everyone just gets their favorite candy on a section of the platter!

    • Elvenlady0

      We would always go to church. Then my mom would made this huge lunch and we would hunt eggs. Now, that I have twin granddaughters I'm eager to start new traditions with them!!

    • Gty46

      The famous family Easter Egg hunt!!!!

    • BethB.

      One of my favorite traditions is dressing my girls in new Easter dresses to go to our Easter morning celebration service at church.

    • Michelle

      We get up early and go to our church's Sunrise Service and then go home and make egg shaped waffles (which we decorate) and then off to grandma's house to join all the family in a huge Easter egg hunt. *love*

    • Rikki

      We don't officially have a family tradition as we just started our family last year, but hope to start one this year. We always get dressed up for our Sunday best and go to church :)

    • Ashley

      I am excited to start our own Easter traditions now that we have moved back home near our families. We have lived in another state for the past 3 years and had to celebrate Easter without our extended family. Now that we're back, I'm looking forward to having a huge Easter egg hunt at our new home!

    • Marcie A.

      Chocolate bunnies from the Easter Bunny….with his paw prints (baby powder “paws”) from the back door to the kitchen table left while he was hopping around the house.

    • Brighetta

      My husband is Ukrainian, so we want to carry on our tradition to our daughter. We cook the night before and don't cook at all on Easter Sunday. Then we bless the food and eat early in the morning… It is a great tradition. Also making Ukrainian eggs with her.

    • Momsuzi

      We dye eggs the day before Easter, the Easter bunny hides them all over the yard, and it takes most of Easter day to find them all.

    • noe

      My whole family goes to my grandmother's and we have a huge easter egg hunt. My grandparents had 7 kids so needless to say it is one gigantic family. This year will not be the same because my uncle just got diagnosed with pacreatic cancer and doesn't have long to live. I would love to have one of the recordable storybooks to give to them so they could record him for his granddaughter. My kids lost their grandfather a few years ago and I know we would cherish something like this.

    • Anmoshell

      We always go to church and then after a yummy lunch, it's Easter egg hunting time!!

    • alainafaith

      We always get a new dress for Easter Mass and the dress cannot be worn until Easter Day. Sometimes this would include a new bonnet or new shoes, but no matter what we bought for Easter, it was not worn until then. And my Mom always got my sister and me Easter baskets, even after we moved out. Last year that ended as I had a baby and now she gets to celebrate with us!

    • Jacobcarrigan

      church, cookout, and egg hunt!

    • Susan H.

      We love the Resurrection Eggs.

    • Christina Metze

      a fairly new tradition for us is making resurrection cookies. a friend at church gave me the recipe and she explained how each ingredient represents a part of the story of Jesus being crucified and rising again. My daughter loves it!

    • Jennifer

      Coloring Easter eggs. Starting this year I will be reading my son The Easter Story.

    • We are pretty standard I think, this year we are going to have a few changes though……We will wake up like normal and have Easter Bunny baskets (our bunny always leaves things like new toothbrushes, toothpaste, bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, 1 new summer outfit, a small toy, and usually a small amount of candy). Then we head out early to church to get there at 9am for the Easter breakfast (again normal) Then, we usually head home around 12 and around 4 we will head out to my MIL's house to do Easter dinner with them and an Easter egg hunt. The difference this year is that we used to do my mom and dad's house right after church, but this year I think we are going to head out to a local park or state park and grill out and spend the day playing and hunting eggs! It will help for us to split the day up, otherwise it feels like we don't even get to breathe on Easter between church, and the two familys. LOL

    • Tlm0525

      We eat a huge lunch with friends and then all the kids have a huge Easter Egg Hunt!!

    • Nikkipel

      Coloring easter eggs.

    • Mbeck1861

      On Easter, we all get up and put on our Easter outfits and go to church. After we get home, we eat lunch and then go Easter egg hunting in the front yard. Mommy hides the eggs once and Daddy hides the eggs once. Then we spend the rest of the day together as a family enjoying our blessings.

    • Rae721

      Church, huge brunch with entire extended family, and Easter egg hunt for the kids.

    • Stephvartanian

      our tradition is that we make anise flavored Easter bread

    • Nancykjoe

      I love putting together awesome baskets for my kids and I especially love the twinkle in their eyes when they see their Easter Baskets!

    • Stuart

      we have 1 easter basket for the whole family

    • Valharp

      Hunting easter eggs, of course!

    • 2bees4shera

      No huge traditions here other than going to church together and spending the day as a family.

    • stephanie

      Easter brunch is a yummy tradition in our house

    • Chele17rene

      The Bunny comes out when everyone is a sleep and hides eggs and leaves a trail of candy leading to the easter baskets!!!! Did this as a child too!!!! Lotts of FUN!!! Thanks Jenny!!!

    • Lparris102904

      It's a tradition that when each child wakes up he/she has to find their Easter basket, which is hidden somewhere in the house. All throughout the house there are eggs hidden w/ candy or money (coins) in them. Afterwards, it's breakfast time. Then time to get ready & go to church with my grandmother. After church, everyone gathers at her house for lunch and a big Easter egg hunt for all the kids!!!
      I have been wanting to get one of these books for her to record so that they will have it after it's her time to meet the Lord. It would be something to remember her by. There are not that many great-grandparents that get to enjoy time with their great-grandbabies so I consider it a privilege that she is still here to enjoy all of us.

    • Cj Girton

      My favorite Easter tradition will end this year. We would always go to my Grandma's for Easter lunch after church. But, we recently moved 5 hours away and took their 2 great grandkids with us. Grandma cries at least once a week since we moved. (We used to live right up the road.) But, new traditions will be starting. We'll color eggs for the first time this year with my daughter and read the Easter story.

    • Scheaths22

      We have a 2 day celebration…one Saturday with a huge lunch and Easter egg hunt with the immediate family. On Sunday, we go to church, have a huge lunch and have an Easter egg hunt/gathering with family and friends! Such good times!

    • Tammy

      Our family always invited fellow believers from our church over for a meal. When I was growing up, my family rarely had non-related guests for meals, but my parents explained that on Easter, of all times, we should celebrate the “bloodrelatives” we have through Christ's blood and His Resurrection power! As an adult, I have frequently had guests into my home, but I still make it a point to host a special meal for Easter.

    • Butlerfly2

      Every Easter my extended family and family friends meet at the local park and have a potluck lunch after church. Then we hide plastic eggs filled with candy, change, and small toys and the hunt is on. All the adults and children look forward to our Easter tradition.

    • Momof1fungirl

      Every year since my daughter's birth we have gone to a pottery place and she has painted a ceramic egg. The first year she was about 9 months old and I just put paint in her hands and she held the egg, then I would use a different color. The older she gets, the more complex the designs, but I love looking at my basket full of eggs every year!

    • Mrs. B

      Our bug tradition is that we are with family and great friends! Every year is different as far as what we do but as long as we are all together, that is what matters the most!!!

    • Sandy565

      We have a big lunch and easter hunt on Easter day! Love the relaxing time to spend with family!

    • Sandy Morrison

      I save my change throughout the year to put in the plastic easter eggs for my grandkids and niece and nephew, they get to spend half of what they find and the other half they save, it is so cute to see their eyes light up when they find the eggs (a few of them) with dollar bills in them !!

    • Teresa F.

      Church and then a big easter lunch with an easter egg hunt for the kids.

    • Mestreit

      We have an “Egg Roll” where you pick your colored easter egg and roll it towards another..whom evers doesnt crack is the winner!! It keeps going until all the eggs are gone..

    • Myinerchld

      It's really not anything major, but I make this jello stuff…and while it's easy and soooo good, I only seem to make it on Easter. =) My kids and husband get soooo happy, and this year my grandson will be old enough to try it. I can't wait! 14 months old…his first “real” Easter. =)

    • barb

      We do an Easter egg roll.

    • Mandy

      Being in church with family that normally do not attend church ;)

    • CHEERWORLD52

      My tradition is that every child of mine(they are young adults, 27,23,and 20) get a Easter basket from the” bunny”. Delivered the night before to their doors to find in the morning. And this year we have 2 new grandchildren, Jayden 9months and Ava who will be here April 13, just in time for Easter. And you can be sure that they will have a basket waiting for them Easter morning From Bubbles and Poppa!

    • Carrie McCall

      Since I was a child, we would go to church, come home and eat an awesome home cooked meal and then we would have our easter egg hunt in our grandmothers front yard. Now, we do the same with my children except we go to their grandmothers house for the meal and hunt. It all brings back childhood memories for me. I hope my kids keep up the traditions!:)

    • Thalia

      Coloring and decorating easter eggs with my kids is my favorite Easter tradition. I loved doing that with my mom when I was a kid and love doing it now with my kids.

    • Denise

      Our favorite tradition is our Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt. The “Easter Bunny” places clues in plastic eggs that eventually lead my kids to their Easter Baskets.

    • Hjt1982

      My favorite Easter tradition is watching my child hunt for Easter eggs.

      We enjoy reading a passage of scripture each night together leading up to the Easter.

    • April

      I always enjoyed the sunrise services that were on the beach (eastcoast). Nothing like an Easter Service on the beach as the bright sun rises. Then of course we'd have egg hunts at home later in the day.

    • Ruthiec15

      My family always goes to stay with my sister in Charleston. We go to the sunrise service. It is so beautiful and then we have lunch. This is an extra special Easter because we will be sharing it with my son born August 20th and my neice born September 7th. This will be their first Easter!

    • Aunt25kiddos

      Our family tradition is cooking a big meal after church and then we all go outside and hide eggs for the kids. We usually do this about 5-6 times before coming inside and enjoying dessert. I love Easter!!!

    • Live2crop

      The kids of course wake up to see what the Easter Bunny brought them, then off to church a big family lunch and egg hunts.

    • Mellie44

      We love to dye Easter eggs and then hunt them we do this every year. It is my favorite thing I always try to get my mom to hide them for me over and over the following week and I'm grown with kids of my own now.

    • Cruzforlife

      We love instilling the real reason for EAster in our children by attending an Easter service and having a special family dinner.

    • Lori B.

      Our favorite Easter tradition is dying eggs with the kids then hiding them the next morning. And a nice dinner with ham and all the trimmings.

    • Amanda

      We have this giant cross on the lawn in front of our church & it's covered with beautiful fresh flowers. We always get a family pic in front of it every year!

    • Kurtzd

      When I was a young girl, all of my aunts and uncles would come to our house for Easter breakfast (traditional babka and kielbasa for a polish breakfast) and the adults would stay in the house and catch up and the children would go outside for an easter egg hunt. When we all great and started having our own families, the tradition continued. All of my aunts and uncles and cousins and their children would come for our Polish breakfast and the children would have an Easter egg hunt after church. It was the one time of year we all were together.

    • Our favorite easter tradition is stamping chalk bunny footprints from house to house so the kids can see where the easter bunny had been.

    • Julieherring

      My favorite Easter tradition was making Easter eggs with my older brother. He is 8 yrs. older than me but he still always wanted to die eggs with me. He also made Easter lunch for us, since he was 15. He loves to cook and it is so much fun to see him cooking.

    • Sidelinelucy

      My daughter will turn 2 the week after Easter. We started a new tradition with her: Since we have egg-laying chickens, we go the April “First Monday” trade days and get a chick, not one with dyed fur but one that will grow into a mother hen….

    • Ahulsey9206

      When we dye eggs, I write a hidden message using the clear crayon. The message appears when we dip them in the dye.

    • Tracybwiliams

      We start celebrating at church on Sunday am , followed by lunch at my husband's grandmothers house. I always make a carrot cake and we hunt eggs. One thing I love it that Ben's grandmother dyes eggs for everyone and writes our names on them. Such sweet and fun times!

    • Mfshore81

      We're Moravian and we play in the band, so we go to every members house and play music to wake them up, and go to the sunrise service. we play at the graveyard and every member who passed away the last year is named. It really reminds you of the loved ones that you have and the ones that have left you!

    • Tisjisaquarius27

      we color eggs together an then Eat at KFC so cooking a big dinner great way to have more time with my family

    • Adittyzacarias

      I am new to Easter because my culture doesn't really celebrate it like thus. But since I've been married my husbands parents who live about an 3 hours away from us drive down and take us out to lunch with my husband's twin sister and they always make it a point to bring an Easter basket and egg hunting for our only daughter that us 3. And to me it's really special because we don't really get to see them to often and they aren't very affectionate or emotional so to see them make that effort every year means the absolute world to me!!!!!

    • Djfields

      We always have an egg hunt.

    • Gmc

      We always have an extra special dinner and of course-lots of candy!

    • Aprilsavesmoney

      My favorite Easter tradition is a large sit-down dinner with family and friends and an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Last year the egg hunt was a blast. I was so excited to find eggs with as much as $5 in them. I think the parents had more fun finding the eggs than the kids.

    • sb

      We attend the sunrise service, have breakfast then spend the day with our family. Such a great day to celebrate our risen Savior.

    • jenn

      egg hunts at my grandparents cabin and morning breakfasts

    • Jenniferlynnkovach

      My mom always hides plastic eggs filled with candy around the house. She is a very good egg hider and it always is a challenge finding all the eggs. She even has to make a key of where all the eggs are because there have been years when we could not find all the eggs and find them later in the year.

    • Tracy

      My family travels to the town where my most of my family lives and we stay with my grandmother for the weekend. On Easter Sunday, we go to church, then have a huge family get together at my grandmother's house. We have a FEAST!! Then, the aduts hide the Easter eggs and the children find them. So much fun!!!

    • Amberjaelyn2005

      Okay! I love holiday traditions!! We have very special traditions though on Christmas and Easter! We all get together at my granmothers and eat like we want ever eat again, then we read a story to the kids about either baby jesus birth on christmas or the resurrection on easter. And its so awesome watching my girls enjoy my pawpaw reading to them just like he did when I was a lil girl.On Easter after the story the grown ups hide the eggs and then the kids get to do their thing and find them. Once the egg hunt is over we grown ups get to have some fun. We get out in the yard with footballs, baseballs, hoola hoops, bubbles and what ever else we can do outside. And we all act like kids again. Its so funny! The kids love it! And watching my pawpaw act like he's a kid again just tickles me!

    • Amanda_Korey

      Waking up and seeing what the Easter Bunny had brought and finding the “Prize” egg.

      Besides the easter dinner and egg hunt an Easter tradition (which is my fav) is the grandmother takes the grandkids shopping and gets them Easter outfits.

    • Ashlee

      My favorite easter tradition is hunting for eggs at my grandmother's house and then everyone sitting down to a brunch feast!

    • Melanie Fuller

      We always travel to grandparents' house to go to church together, then eat a big home-cooked lunch, then hide and hunt easter eggs (filled with $ now that my boys have gotten older)! Of course, their favorite is finding the Golden Egg! We also enjoy using the “Resurrection Eggs” to tell the Easter story!

    • We celebrate Easter by attending church together and remembering the GREAT Blessing of Jesus' Resurrection.

    • Janice

      We have a family easter egg hunt.

    • Cathy

      We have a brunch for the congregation at church and after Easter service we have an Easter Egg hunt. :)

    • Jenn

      I make my own resurrection eggs, and hide one everyday for two weeks leading up to Easter. The kids love to look for the eggs and hear each part of the Easter story. It's a great and fun way to focus on Christ! On the last day we make resurrection rolls to celebrate before we dye eggs. Easter has become one of my favorite holidays!

    • Easter ham! And mashed potatoes with ham gravy, deviled eggs…. And singing “He Arose” on Sunday morning!

    • Selena

      The Easter bunny hiding our basket and leaving clues to find it.

    • Whitts3

      We make resurrection cookies or rolls and read the real Easter story from Bible.

    • Jenkinsfamily5

      Growing up we all loved going to sunrise service, eating breakfast at church, going home to change clothes and then heading back to church for Sunday School and church. After church we all ate lunch as a family. My favorite tradition is from my Greek ancestory where we have red-dyed hard-boiled eggs and play a game by cracking each others' egg–head-to-head and then bottom-to-bottom. We play the game still after my grandparents have passed on after we all finish eating lunch. It's a great reminder of the blood Jesus shed for us at Easter.

    • Mspatty0524

      i remember as a little girl one easter we looked for easter eggs in about a foot of snow
      and at christmas we were running around in t-shirts

    • Shannon

      We get together with my husbands whole family and have a huge Easter egg hunt for the kids.

    • Mrsncaywood

      My family always loves to make the resurrection cookies. It was something I did as a child, and we are enjoying passing the tradition on to my daughter. It was always so much fun making the cookies and putting them in the oven right before bedtime, and then breaking them open the next morning to find an “empty tomb.”

    • Katy P

      I have wanted to buy one of these for MONTHS but they seem so expensive!

      Our son is 16 months old so he will wake up to a new tball set and we will all go to Church together to celebrate our RISEN Savior. Then we have a big lunch with our extended family. Easter is my favorite holiday of the year!

    • JodiMaria

      My favorite Easter tradition is eating a Cadbury Creme Egg for breakfast on Easter morning ;)

    • Tami

      When my boys were young, I would do a scavenger hunt for my boys in the house. I would leave a “clue” egg at the end of their bed. Once they found the first egg, there would be a “clue” inside. For example, “Where you will find your next clue, is right downstairs in your shoe.” I would having both of them running up and down the stairs frantically. The last clue would lead to their basket. The year they turned 12, I did not continue the game because I thought they had outgrown it. They were so disappointed, that I still carry on the tradition even though they are now 14!!!

    • Coupongal18

      I'm so excited because this year, we have our son that is 15 months old – so, just old enough to start to enjoy fun things like dying Easter eggs. We do that every year and even leave a “Easter Egg tray” out for the Easter Bunny!!!!

    • Kaseynorton

      The night before Easter we dye eggs, in the morning we get dressed up in our new easter outfits which match the cousins and go to church afterwards all of the kids hunt for the easter eggs and we have a family dinner! :)

    • Csoble1214

      I rem when we used to hide eggs and mom used to tell us every year how jesus awoken and arose from the gravev…it always seemed so amazing to me, still does, and i love telling my kids now

    • Cassie Howard

      The Easter Bunny always hid our baskets and we would have to find them on Easter morning. I look forward to carrying on this tradition with my little girl. I was always confused about why he hid my basket but not all my friends baskets!

    • Sweetk3346

      We always decorate eggs and go to a Sunrise Service at church.

    • K Anne

      We decorate Easter eggs with Grandma and go to Easter service.

    • Graphnixs

      Spending Easter with family is our tradition. We also love that the Easetr bunny hides the entire Easter basket along with some eggs filled with goodies on Easter Morning.

    • Lorraine Reep

      I love the promise of the resurrection and all that Easter is about in our Christian faith, but my favorite Easter tradition is coloring eggs. We do it the “old fashioned” way with food color and vinegar! Even as a child in a large family where they was little money for extras, we always colored eggs and the Easter bunny never missed our house!

    • Julie

      church and a big family meal

    • Angel

      My son just turned one, so this will be our first Easter to start traditions together! I look forward to involving as many family and friends as possible!

      hunting eggs of course!

    • Markswife1996

      My family gathers together for an awesome Easter meal every year. We take turns going to either me or my sisters houses, now that we are adults with families of our own. We love to present the children with meaningful Easter gifts that remind us just how important Easter is and what it means to us.

    • Kim

      Favorite traditions are: 1) celebrating the resurrection and paying respects and adoration to those who have gone before us in the graveyard service at our Moravian church and 2) an Easter meal with my family.

    • Ingrid

      We have a Russian easter with all kinds of foods including colored eggs and cakes with long candles.

    • Cclbischoff

      We have incorperated a little passover traditions with our Easter Dinner after service. A place at table for Elijah and Dad hides something important(usually a new Bible with $100 in it) and starting with oldest to youngest get a 5min chance and whoever finds it gets to keep it. Also with Lent we ask out children to do something that will be a great sacrafice for them and they all get to give thier reports at desert. I love the Hallmark stuff and I am getting the recordable book for my grandson.

    • Jen Oberhaus

      We started an Easter Egg Hunt last year with my now almost 3-year-old son. There wasn't even anything in the plastic eggs but he had so much fun finding them that he didn't care! I don't know if we'll be able to get away with that this year. :)

    • kristina

      My family all gets together to have a large dinner and the kids enjoy an Easter Egg hunt.

    • Mlmc261

      We have a traditional Easter with an egg hunt after lunch. My brother started hiding the eggs for his neices and nephews when they were little. The tradition of where can I hide where they will never find it occurs every year. The now famous family classic hiding spot is the exhaust pipe of a car.

    • Mel

      Love these books. An Easter tradition we started in recent years is making “empty tomb rolls.” Yummy and so meaningful to the kids!

    • Staceface81

      Coloring eggs with my mom and all the kids.

    • Maryh627

      Every year for Easter our traditions consist of the night before dying boiled eggs and decorating them, making rice krispies treats in the shapes of flowers and eggs and etc. and decorating them, and then we fill the plastic eggs for the easter egg hunt we have on easter after church.

      Easter day we go to chuch, the whole family comes over and we have our easter egg hunt and eat different dishes and snacks eveyone brought.

    • Annatthelake

      We always hide eggs and someone gets the golden egg.

    • Dy

      We always have Sonrise service at our church followed by breakfast cooked by the men!

    • Leah

      Our favorite tradition is a simple wooden cross in the yard to symbolize the true meaning of Easter. Throughout lent a purple ribbon is draped on the cross. On Good Friday, a black ribbon, and on Easter morning, a white one to symbolize newness of Christ!

    • Albers135

      Having an egg hunt and seeing what the easter bunny has left us followed by church and a family dinner

    • Aklholl

      We have a family meal, egg hunt and read scripture of Jesus' death and resurrection.

    • Kristan

      Always make sure we're with family no matter what

    • Devin

      Normally our tradition was to watch the nephews and niece hunt eggs at my in-laws' house, but this year, my one-year-old will be able to participate – I'm excited to see if she 'gets' it!

    • Couponjulie07

      Our easter tradition included finding the purple bunny. We have done this since my older brother was born. Even now that we are all in our late 20's early 30's, my parents hide the purple bunny with all the other eggs, and the person who finds it wins. You would think that thing was worth a million dollars! :)

    • Tmcentee3453

      What would Easter be without an egg hunt? My family always decorates eggs and hunt for those along with plastic filled eggs. It is a tradition that I have never outgrown and I hope my boys never do!

    • Mallickkimmie

      Before Easter morning, mom would put one of those large pretty chocolate egg at the foot of my bed. I would get to eat it for breakfast. I could never finish one cause it was solid chocolate but it was fun to try.

    • Michelledonnellyrn

      our newest tradition is an easter egg hunt

    • Karen

      I have thought for years that recording stories for my grandkids would be a lovely way to stay connected over the miles…and now they're easy to do and I have grandkids, but a little out of my price range unfortunately. Winning the package would be absolutely terrific!

    • Jdfcoupons

      After church, we have a big family dinner and an egg hunt for the grandchildren. Even my out of town children make sure they are here for Easter!

    • Lisa

      My family's favorite Easter tradition is a egg hunt and brunch on the Saturday before Easter at my Sister's house. Lot's of cousins come and bring their kids too. It is almost like a family reunion.

    • Amy

      Telling the story of Jesus.

    • Keri

      Our fav fam Easter tradition is telling the Easter story. We have little slips of paper with a scripture on it and then a corresponding item. Also, on each egg is a number. We hide the eggs, and then, as a family, we open the eggs in the correct order. It's a lot of fun and really teaches our kids the true meaning of Easter.

    • Reneeandrews225

      Our favorite tradition is the easter egg hunt with our son and I always cook a Prime rib dinner for the three of us. Then we cuddle up on the couch for a family movie and eat all the candy the bunny left for our son!

    • Jessica

      We are starting a new tradition this year – now that we have a little girl. Easter egg hunt in her crib, dressing her up as a bunny, tye dyed pancakes in the shape of little eggs and tons of family time!

    • Grace

      Our Easter tradition starts with Good Friday. During the day Fasting of food and no TV, Computers etc. Time for family and coloring eggs. Then in the evening we go as a family to Worship, Tenabrae Service of darkness. Saturday is low key and Sunday we all go to Worship to Celebrate. Followed by Easter Dinner with our whole “clan” all 19 of us.

    • Melinda Wilson

      We have a family reunion on Easter Sunday and all go to Eastlake Park which huge! We gather all the children's eggs and go hide them. We have been doing this for over 30 years now.

    • Wolfepack

      Since we've had kids (10 years now) our Easter basket has always had more Biblical-based goodies than candy or toys and in the last 4 years it's always had a devotion book, Bible or Bible cover. This gives Easter morning the right focus and makes our trip to church that much more special!

    • Erin T.

      We always go to the sunrise service. It's a magical feeling watching the sun rise above the trees as you celebrate the resurrection.

    • Autball

      Can't wait to dye eggs with our son this year for the first time! He's 2 1/2, this will be the first year he'll know what's going on. Our local Chick-fil-a also does a great easter egg hunt!

    • kim h

      since my daughter was little the week leading up to easter each day the easter bunny would leave small treats somewhere outside for her to find even now at 14 she asks if the easter bunny is going to leave suprises before easter

    • Maywink

      We would all go to my Great Grandmother, MeMe's house, who was born in the 1880's and was the only person who instilled the kindness of her Christian life to me, in my abusive alchoholic family life at home.
      We would still be all dressed up and she would hide Easter eggs outside of her and her sister “Aunt Ollies' big victorian house for us to find. Since her family was English, from Cornwall, England, we could expect Cornish Pasties for lunch/dinner. I can smell them now, Um, Um…
      My Mother would then take us down to town (Bangor, a small slate town in Pennsylvania, where she grew up and her father was the town's only Doctor), where we would go to Callie's Candy Kitchen (which we were related to) and we would get hand poured into large old easter molds, white or milk chocolate bunnies, chicks, airplanes, and all different shaped chocolates.
      Easter was always so wonderful going to Bangor. We wished that we never had to go home.
      But, thanks to MeMe, I am a full fledged Christian today. PRAISE THE LORD
      Sincerely,
      Beth W.

    • Jowellsjohnston

      I have to get these for my daughter so her Grandparents can leave her a special treasure that she can keep forever.

    • SharonC

      Our favorite Easter tradition is reading the story of Christ's resurrection.

    • swaltz1

      our traditions have changed as the kids have grown… but one tradition is we decorate the house with many of the same decorations that I used when I was a kid

    • Lana

      We make the kids hunt for their Easter baskets even now that they are all adults. Our oldest son has never been able to find his while his siblings keep seeing it and snickering.

    • Amgtt_18

      one tradition we have is to go through our resurrection eggs. last year we started a new tradition and made the easter cookies that tell the easter story as well.

    • Shanacoupons

      My grandmother is one of 13 children. Every Easter after church we go to her oldest sister's house for dinner and an Easter Egg Hunt. The 13 children, their children, their grands and great grands attend plus neighbors. We hide over 50 dozen eggs in the woods. There are all kinds of prizes. (Most eggs, least eggs, lucky eggs, great grandmother of the lucky egg winner.) It is so much fun and a great time to spend with extended family that you don't see the rest of the year.

    • MK

      Whole family, extended and all, get together for a huge meal. Then all the kids hunt eggs. Lots of fun!

    • Adibish

      Who doesn't love the family fight over the rear end of the butter shaped like a lamb?

    • Jenni_paige

      Attending candlelite service at church together! :)

    • Katie

      Growing up near the coast, we would get up bright and early and go to the beach and attend our church's Sunrise Service snuggled in blankets surrounded by so many people we loved.

    • Everyonewillbow

      Coloring eggs and then having an egg hunt. Our neighborhood also has an egg hunt that we go to with free jumpies!!

    • Jenn

      Easter is one of my favorite holidays. We have a big Easter egg hunt every year at my mom & dad's house. We actually have 2 Easter egg hunt's, one for the kids and one for the grown ups. The egg's are filled with money which makes it even more fun. Here we are grown adults running around the yard looking for Easter egg's. I'm sure we look alittle crazy running around the yard but it's so much fun!

    • Kristen

      Going to church together, followed by a big Easter lunch, and an Easter egg hunt!

    • Heidi

      We are starting a new tradition this year, and annual egg hunt for all the children in our Sunday School class.

    • Rebecca Ullery

      I am the “baby” of five and I'm 25: the oldest is 45. To this day every year the Saturday before Easter we have a cook out and die Easter eggs. After all of us (about 20 in all) are done with the eggs dry and we eat. When all is sad in done while we eat we also put eggs out for the kids to hunt. The wonderful part about our tradition is we love this as much or more as the kids!

    • Dgswatz

      Family dinner is a must .

    • JEN C

      Our favorite Easter tradition is coloring eggs :)

    • Aesandman

    • Elizabeth

      The easter bunny always left our baskets on the front porch -we would hurry outside to find them easter morning before church!!! And then we would get all dressed up in our new easter clothes and go to church!! My husband and his brothers always had an easter egg hunt on easter sunday! We know have our own family ( twin boys) and are so excited about merging our traditions to make easter a special time for them!!!!!!

    • Laura

      Easter egg hunt Sat nite, church Easter Sunday & a nice ham for dinner.

    • My favorite Easter tradition would just be spending time with my family.

    • Themckees76

      My favorite Easter tradition is that my husband started hiding eggs 25 years ago in our vehicle the night before so our daughter could find them on the way to church Easter morning. Well we have a five year old daughter now that we continue the tradition with and our oldest has a little boy about to turn 1 and she informed us that she is going to carry on the tradition with her son.

    • Lorifgreer

      Painting eggs, a hunt, and a delicious lunch!

    • Jamieandkatie

      My favorite thing to do on Easter is to get dressed up in my best Easter dress and go to church with my family! It just wouldn't be Easter without taking the time to reflect on our Lord's victory over death!

    • mimsyy

      The family dinner at Grammy and Grandpa's was always my favorite. There were always fuzzy “chicks” decorating the table that were fun for the kids to play with. My favorite thing at the dinner was the bunny-like pear salads. Since we just moved to another state this year, my husband and I will be starting new traditions for our little girl.

    • Sharbert06

      Every Easter we all get together for eats and have the children an egg hunt.

      Finding an Easter basket full of goodies and then going to church. Then getting together with my husband's family for a delicious meal and egg hunt for the kids.

    • Tracywatermelon

      Easter has always been our busy time because we are in the ministry. We always find time to hide our daughter's basket and giveher hints by playing “You are getting warmer” game.

    • Jhardy23

      My favorite Easter tradition is sunrise service.

    • Mlscan_2000

      The Easter bunny hides chocolate bunnies around our family room along with filling the Easter baskets.

    • Sarah

      My husband hides the kids Easter baskets and they have to seek and find them. They love it!

    • Jennifer

      We always have the girls set out their Easter Baskets the night before Easter. They use the same basket each year. We color eggs, buy our new Easter dress/shoes and go to church with the family. After we take photos together. We've done this in my family for years. Then after lunch we hide the eggs for the kids. Love Easter!

    • Klashea2

      All my life every Easter of coarse we go to church ,as we do every Sunday, then we go to my Mawmaw and Pawpaw's(my Pawpaw has long passed but I still call it Mawmaw and Pawpaw's) eat a great lunch shared with Mawmaw and Pawpaw's 4 children and thier spouses, then there is 11 grandchildren which all have spouses,22 great-grandchildren and a few are married and 2 great-great grandchildren. Then after everyone has eaten then its Easter egg hunt time! Its even more precious now with 3 children of my own!

    • Mchatman75

      We go to church in our new dresses, shoes shirts ect. We color eggs and hide them. The easter bunny comes and hides our easter baskets. When I was a child we always saw passion play that depicted th crucifixation and resurrection of Christ out door on real crosses. It looked so real. I would love to find something like this for m own children.

    • Knkids

      The adult easter egg hunt! We have clear eggs, camouflage eggs and a yard that makes finding them a lot harder than it sounds. Each participant has to find his color of eggs. The younger kids have bright green or pink, the adults get the camo and clear. Lots of fun for the whole family!

    • Say1399

      its simple but means alot: the whole family going to church together and then coming home, have dinner then an egg hunt for the smaller kids.

    • Kimbelystew123

      This is the first Easter I will share with my daughter Kasidee (8 Months). I hope to make holidays like Easter just as fun for her as my mom has made them for my sister and I. My mom still makes us each an Easter basket (the original one from when we were kids!) filled with goodies. I'm 25 and I still look foward to my Easter basket!

    • Kgibson7600

      I LOVE TO EAT!!!!!

    • Cortnie

      We go to church, eat dinner, and have an Easter Egg hunt! It has been the same since I was a kid and now my kids enjoy the tradition.

    • Linda

      I'm getting so old that my favorite thing is to hid my own Easter eggs.I forget where I hide them……HA

    • Jpopry

      We used to all get the samecandy every year and loved that. Reese's pb eggs, robin eggs, and a Russell stover solid choc bunny. I am pregnant with our 1st now and can't wait to have the Easter Bunny bring the same goodies to my child. Hopefully I can add a Hallmark book with the grandparents' voices as well to the tradition.

    • Kmd

      My kids are allergic to most kinds of candy, so we put stickers inside plastic eggs for them to find. When they have found all of the eggs, they sit down and add their new stickers to an Easter sticker notebook. Then we load them up and hide them again. Some eggs have sticker letters in them that spell out a message. The kids can't wait to see what surprise is in each egg, and what the special message is that is meant for each of them.

    • Gina Hyatt

      My grandmother would make this huge sheet cake in the shape of a bunny head. I don't like coconut but still loved seeing this cake every year. My family has moved miles apart and we aren't able to be together on Easter like when I was a child. Time has taken my wonderful grandmothers mind and the bunny cake. Although we weren't very religious Easter was a beautiful big holiday as a child. I wish my 2 y/o could have the same big family experience.
      Guess I'll learn to make a bunny cake:).

    • Jeangreen1133

      While building our new home in the woods next door to the current one, the contractors found a plastic Easter egg! It had been well hidden for at least 10 years! What a surprise and a reminder of when our children were young.

    • AnnTaylor

      The adults always hide the Easter Eggs for the kids first and then after all the eggs are dound, the kids get to then hide the eggs for the adults to find! We all have tons of fun and prizes for both the little ones and the adults.

    • sarah

      Every year me and my kids make “He is risen” cookies. We do them in the evening the night before and they are ready to eat the next day. All through the recipe I get to explain the reason we celebrate Easter. It has been a tradition we started since my daughter was born 4 years ago.

    • Sweetfacedesigns

      A baked ham! The last few years, though, my aging grandmother has burned it to a crisp :)

    • Kasi_wilson

      Every year my family gathers at my parents' house. All of my nieces and nephews and my children hunt eggs and play outside.

    • Jrconnel

      We pull out the Easter eggs at least two months before Easter and the kids “practice” hunting for eggs! This way they are ready for the real hunt! :-)

    • Erin

      Well, being the oldest of 10 children and coming from a Christian family, Easter has always been very special to us. My mom making lunch after church and then a HUGE egg hunt in our yard. My particular favorite Easter was the year (1991, I believe) when my mom decided to make all (9 at the time) of us matching Easter outfits. She worked so hard and on the last one (the night before Easter) she somehow sewed it upside down! Yeah, it wasn't funny at the time. But bless her heart, she ripped out every stitch and remade it and we were all matching and in church Sunday morning on time! I just love to remember that

    • krs

      Every Easter we hide the Easter baskets and the kids have to look for them.

    • Mhglaze

      Our church's sunrise service is the perfect way to start Easter morning… a day to remember that Christ is ALIVE!

    • Aspisak77

      We hide the Easter basket, and give the kids clues they have to follow from one to the other until they end up at their baskets. The kids LOVE it. Even my 3 yr old gets really easy clues and he eats it up. My parents did it for me and my sisters, so we continue the Easter Basket hunt with our kids.

    • Cokers5

      We go to church, then have a big meal with the family and then all the kids hunt for Easter eggs.

    • Donna

      Our favorite time is using the Resurrection Eggs to teach the kids the meaning of Easter. This year the kids are trying to figure out why it is the 'Easter Bunny'..They don't lay eggs!

    • Beth

      Going to church with my family and getting together for a wonderful meal afterward!

    • Julie B

      We go to church together and then have a big meal with the whole family!

    • Josephineriver

      Our Easter tradition begins the evening before with a (2 hours) Easter Vigil mass. The following morning, we enjoy a traditional brunch.

    • Kara

      Our annual easter egg hunt and going to church with the family

    • Nan

      We always hunt Easter eggs and eat ham, sweet potatoe souffle, and pie. The book would be great for my husband to record a story for the kids to listen to every night while he is gone!

    • Nancy

      We always crack the eggs against each other. The one with an uncracked egg wins. I remember so vividly doing this with my grandfather. He always won but I never learned his secret.

    • Tara

      We haven't really made any Easter traditions in our family yet, as our daughter is just 2 now, but I loved searching for my Easter basket when I was a little girl.

    • Cozyidaho

      For Easter we get together with family for a big dinner. We only catch up with most of them at the Christmas holiday, Easter and Thanksgiving. The kids like to hunt eggs with prizes in them.

    • Myer Offers

      We live away from biological family, so we have adopted a new family in Christ for the holidays when we cannot travel home. This will be our first Easter with our son, so a new tradition is sure to begin, but our former tradition will still continue which is a southern style pot luck feast on a friend's farm and swimming in the pond from the rope swing! Not everyone who attends knows the Lord, but those of us who do get to share that love with the others.

    • DK

      Like most, coloring Easter eggs and hunting for them Easter morning.

    • Ksullivan75

      Dying the eggs, basket hunt & neighborhood hunt.

    • amber p

      we like to have ham and biscuits Easter morning. . .and still make my fiancee an easter basket!

    • Lucie

      Easter Tradition for my family and I is first and foremost celebrating the Resurrection of our Savior. A large ham dinner with all the fixings. Who can forget the Easter egg hunt for the young and old.

    • Vferris

      My favorite Easter tradition was to hide eggs in the backyard for my seven Grandkids. I would put golden coin dollars in some and others would have candy or slips of numbers inside that went to a list of prizes ie: five dollar bills, games, color books with crayons, chalk, bubbles, and other surprises. We would give each of them some doughnuts in the yard from Dunkin Doughnuts as well.I would hide the eggs while they were at Church, and put the doughnuts out there too on their trampoline or table.So far I just got little bunny/duckies for the tub for the Great Grand….We would have a lovely dinner with all of them.

    • Jdb3358

      We go spend the weekend with our extended family, going to church, eating a huge Southern-style, traditional Easter lunch, and all the adults watching all the kids hunt Easter eggs on my father's front yard. For us it is all about taking time to spend together as a family, enjoying each others company and celebrating the true meaning of Easter.

    • Lumsden1997

      Easter is very special to our family. We celebrate our risen Savior! The night before Easter we make Tomb Cookies and the next morning when we open our oven and break open the cookies they are empty on the inside…just as the tomb was empty!! We always have a special service at church and the kids have an Easter Egg Hunt. It is a wonderful Day!

    • Debbie

      Getting the family together after Church on Easter Sunday for food & fellowship and of course lots of egg hunts (adults hide eggs for the kids first — then the kids hide eggs for the grownups to find). We make sure there are enough “prize” eggs for every child to “find” one! I've seen the recordable books recently & wanted one very much. What a great giveaway!

    • amy

      Our favorite Easter tradition is just celebrating the reason for the season. Christ is Risen! Sweet Victory!

    • Frbnewt

      After church the entire family (my siblings and their families) all gather at my mother's house for dinner and an egg hunt. There are over 200 eggs and 9 or 10 kid to hunt for them. Most of them are filled with money (mostly coins) that we have saved over the year. There is a Golden Egg with a 20 dollar bill. The twon 15 year olds are trying to decide if they are too old this year. My bet is that they won't be!.

    • Couponsforheather

      We have an 10mo old so we will start some new traditions. We have traveled in years past, but unsure this year. My Mom always gave us an Easter basket. As a child, it included stockings, hair accessories, etc to go with our new Easter outfit for church. She continued to give us basket as long as we lived in the house, even through college. I loved waking up to that basket sitting on the end of the bed. The most important tradition we had was attending church to celebrate Christ's resurrection.

    • Kathy

      So many wonderful traditions! I am going to say dying eggs, since that is one of the last things that my dad got to do with my daughter before he began celebrating Easter in Heaven.

    • Anita

      My favorite Easter tradition is the making of the watermelon egg. My aunt pulls out the tape and makes at least one every year.

    • Clark8384

      The night before Easter we read a couple of books to the kids about the true meaning behind Easter. We explain that while receiving a Easter basket is fun the true blessing is what Jesus did for us. Easter morning they get the baskets and they enjoy some chocolate ship pancakes. Then it's off to church with a family Easter egg hunt that follows

    • bekaloo

      Dying easter eggs with the kids! I love talking about the REAL meaning behind easter while spending some fun and creative time with the kids!

    • Asensenbach

      A favorite from my past is waking up Easter morning and searching for our Easter baskets the Easter bunny left us! My mom would always make me and my brother a special basket with just things we liked and I especially remember the coloring book she would put in there and a box of brand new crayons… I miss those days!

    • Bsn04

      My husbnd and I enjoy going our church service that morning then a nice lunch afterwards. And of course I also enjoy looking for a new “Easter” dress for that day.

    • Vickie Heydenreich

      We dye Easter Eggs together!! You cannever be too old to dye Easter Eggs!!

      Vickie Heydenreich

    • karrie211

      We try to connect Old & New Testament. We remember the plagues the 10 days before Good Friday. The kids will find “frogs” in their beds, locusts in the cabinet, etc. Then we have family communion on Good Friday and talk about the final and perfect lamb being slain. Of course the egg hunt and more come on Sunday!

    • Brit

      While I was growing up my parents always got me a chocolate peanut butter egg from a local candy shop…we loved it!

    • Sherry

      We dye Easter eggs, but my favorite part is watching them look for hidden eggs.

    • Misswissa99

      Our family always has a Easter egg hunt after church and lunch for the “kids”. But what's so funny is my 84 year old grandmother always ends up running around hunting and finding the most easter eggs. She is histarical to watch! :o)

    • Kreeder2

      Coloring and hiding Easter eggs.

    • Rah1976

      would love to win this.. for my mom to read to my son…

    • Easter traditions for our family include resurrection biscuits, early morning church service followed by a big family brunch and egg hunt.

    • Ktandrews5

      Our Easter tradition starts with church (while my husband gets him in the car) I set out eggs in the back yard (the plastic ones) and all the easter stuff on the coffee table, so when he comes back he's surprised that the Easter bunny came…lol. I make an early Easter supper (Usually Ham, veggies and rolls) and we all sit and eat together and then we color Easter eggs and have them for breakfast the next morning…(It's alot easier then trying to do it before church..)

    • Lisa

      Our Easter tradition is going to church followed by a family dinner of ham, potato salad, green beans, corn, rolls, sweet tea and a coconut cake made in the shape of the cross.

    • Mlkdivine3

      My most favorite family tradition that I share with my church family is telling the true meaning of Easter and the reason why we celebrate this day through plays, skits, monologues, speeches, and songs.

    • Ldforrest

      Our favorite family Easter memory is after Church we have an old fashioned easter egg hunt including the golden egg. The adults all wear bunny ears and the kids try to find all the eggs.

    • Jessymessy

      Our Easter tradition is going to church (where I grew up) and then going to my Grandmother's house with all of my cousins and their family members to enjoy an overflow of ham, macaroni pie, potato salad, deviled eggs, broccoli casserole, brown rice and other family favorites. We also hide Easter eggs for the great grandchildren.

    • kerrimex

      My entire family always gathers at my parents' home for Easter dinner. It's a wonderful time together as a family.

    • Nicole

      Coloring eggs and having the Easter Bunny come to our house with our favorite treats.

    • Nwoleslagle

      We use the resurrection eggs every year.

    • Etotustuus

      A new tradition we have is making polish easter bread in honor of my husband's heritage

    • Cindy

      One tradition we have continued is deocrating 100 eggs and stuffing them with stickers/non food items and suprising kids with them. We drop them on front porches 10 to a bag and run. It is so much fun making and decorating them. My kids love to do it. I think it inspires giving.

    • Wendy68

      Watching kids hunting eggs. It is so neat seeing our kids with their own children. Nana loves that.

    • Denissalloyd

      This will be my grandson's 1st easter where he will be able to hunt eggs!! He is 2 and loves being outside. I can't wait to make our own wonderful memories of easter and all the holidays!!

    • lxlaube

      making Easter baskets and leaving them for the kids to find. And now that I have a great grandchild, I am going to start a tradition with recordable books.

    • Kelli

      I have a newborn & I'm excited to start a new tradition with him.

    • bootsiegirl

      Every Easter morn my family got up early and when to the early “sunrise” service (usually held outside at a park or a community church grounds). Then out to eat breakfast and then to Sunday School and Church services. Afterwards, the lunch and hiding Easter eggs, all the while remembering the real reason for the holiday.

      Now I have a 1 year old granddaughter and we will be going to their church (my son-in-law is a pastor) and then ????? This year will be the start of new traditions. So exciting, and yet I will always remember my previous 58 Easters!!!!!

    • Bcasalou

      Release a balloon with the message of the gospel

    • Jess

      We watch “Passion of the Christ” every year (just before Easter) as a visual reminder of what our Savior did for us.

    • Smurfygrl1979

      I hope to start traditions with my 1 year old this year. Easter pics, easter egg hunt, making cupcakes at grandmas, etc

    • Awolfpackpair

      Sunrise church service on easter morning! Jesus is the reason for the season!!

    • Angela hobson

      I am a single mom of three girls: 19, 16 and 12. We always dye easter eggs together every year. We each pick out our favorite egg and place it in our centerpiece. We put out all the easter books they loved when they were small and the salvation eggs they made in kindergarten! They still get easter baskets on easter morning. The past few years I have put items in that I have gotten at yard sales and great deals at drugstores. We do not have much financially but we know we are more than blessed to have each other!!

    • rjc

      This year I am giving (small) gifts to all the family who gather for the Easter meal. I decided to emphasize “giving” and “celebration” at Easter, like Christmas, because yes, we celebrate the birth of Christ but it is His resurrection that gives us hope!

    • Easter was my dad's favorite holiday! We would get up every Easter to a note from the Easter Bunny that our baskets would be there when we got home from church. We would all get dressed up in our new Easter outfits and head to church for the sunrise service then breakfast. When we got home there were our baskets from the Easter Bunny. We would have a huge lunch with the famiy then spend the rest of the day hanging out and playing games. It is a tradition I plan to continue with my kids now that they are getting older and my dad is no longer around! This is a very special holiday for me!!!

    • Christykmccallum

      We make an Easter tree every year.

    • kristi

      We are starting a new tradition this year of serving food to others. After all, Easter is about God giving us his only Son so we thought it would be neat to give to others on this day as well.

    • Brenda

      After church on Easter Day, the grandchildren come to eat our traditional Easter lunch and then an Easter Egg Hunt. What a wonderful day!

    • Barnesj84596

      We take family photos at Easter. It is so much fun to look back at the years and see how everyone has changed

    • Ang3327

      I love to go on an Easter Egg hunt. When I was little my dad would find all kinds of weird places to hide the eggs. He would bury them in the ground or any other crazy place so he could trick us. This is one my favorite childhood memories.

    • Deannemk

      My favorite is making a bunny cake with m&ms for the outline.

    • Amy in GA

      We color Easter eggs and my daughter will look for them in the morning, and laugh at the funny places the bunny gets into, like her Barbie minivan.

      We dress up and go to church and if all available, have a family meal with folks in the area.

    • Amazonheidi

      Easter egg hunt!

    • TamK

      Dying Easter eggs! I loved this as a child and continue to dye eggs every year with family and my preschool students.

    • Ashleyphillips76

      We have a Easter egg hunt , eat and enjoy family.

    • Loyal2disney

      This will be the first year my daughter and nephew will be old enough to go on an egg hunt, so I am sure new traditions will start this year! Services at church have always been a tradition for us….Maundy Thursday service with Holy Communion, Good Friday service, then beautiful Easter Sunday service!

    • pinkroses

      I love doing the Resurrection Eggs with my kids and reading a story about Jesus' death, burial, & resurrection.

    • Denise

      Love the fun of dying Easter eggs every year!

    • Kris Mcd

      Coloring eggs, Easter Mass, & a big family meal!!

    • Nelbel914

      Honestly… decorating eggs is my favorite. It's a great time to get together… and have a little fun making a mess!

    • Craignbarb14

      the easter egg hunt of course and don't forget the meal!

    • Sheilaaldridge1

      We have 2 toddler GRANDsons and are blessed to live near and spend a lot time with one….but the other one lives 11 hours away. A Hallmark Recorable Book is a great idea. Nana and papa can be a part of his Easter by reading to him, in their own voices, even if they can't hold him while reading. And both boys would love the ducks. This would be much more personal than a card, candy, and Easter toys.

    • connie

      coloring eggs, hinding eggs

    • Amanda

      We love going to the grandparents for easter… They hide eggs in the front yard for the adults…(small bills, change, etc for the grown ups to collect) and candy filled eggs in the back yard for the kids. It is awesome to see two grown men (brothers) gathering up eggs to see if either has enought for dinner night out!

    • Ben/Chelsea Mommy

      We always died Easter eggs as a family. When my grandfatther was alive he would let us crack them on his bald head. We always thought it was funny. Now that I am older and he is no longer with us, I treasure dying Easter eggs with my kids. It is a great time to share my memories with them while making new ones with them and my parents.

    • Alysongourley

      My favorite thing to do on Easter is dressing up going to church,then the whole extended family does an Easter egg hunt! Good times!

    • momof3

      We typically have a bit brunch for our kids–They love it! Then, we hunt eggs. However, this year we're parting from the norm–We're going to celebrate with the kid's great grandparents. Here's hoping for a wonderful new tradition!

    • Brannum_marsha

      We get all dressed up in our new Easter Dresses and go to church to hear a preaching on the meaning of easter. Afterwords, the children have a huge egg hunt. We make the rest of the day a peaceful family day. What a blessed day, and a day we should all be so greatful for. Than you god for giving your son & thank Jesus for giving you live and rolling away the stone and rising again!!!!

    • Btull7851

      A favorite tradition in my family are the Resurection Eggs. They are wonderful for showing children the life, death and resurection of Jesus. My children look forward to this ever year. They can't wit to see which symbol is inside each egg.

      • kjmiller

        I remember a post from Jenny about these last year. I wanted to make some for my children this year, but might have forgotten! Thanks for the reminder. :)

    • kjmiller

      Getting a new Easter dress for our daughter (I think it helps her understand what the importance of what we are celebrating)!

    • Chevtaph

      When we were young we always went shopping for a new dress for Easter Sunday. I loved getting a new purse and bonnet to match my outfit. My mom still has some pictures of my sister and I all dressed up on an old stump in front of our house.

    • Rjdiesch

      Our favorite Easter Tradition are the Resurrection Eggs. My kids LOVE telling the Easter story over and over using those special eggs! I would love to win your Easter Giveaway package! Thank you for the opportunity.

    • Shannon

      When we were little, my mom used to hide the little foil wrapped chocolate eggs in several rooms of the house. The inside Easter egg hunt was always fun!

    • keilah

      Big lunch after church at my grandma's house. This year she is in a rehab facility after breaking her hip and having surgery. It will be sad not to be at her house but am very thankful she is doing so well!

    • Leah W

      We always have a big Easter egg hunt with our extended family out on the family farm. Lots of good food and eggs full of candy. Good times.

    • Courtney

      Easter dinner most definitely…gotta love the ham!

    • Ethansmama14

      Since my son was born, we have started going to the local Harley Davidson shop on Easter and my son loves hearing and seeing the motorcycles and they always make it super fun for the kids. Plus, an Easter Bunny with a beard and sunglasses is always funny to my son.

    • Erin S.

      We always head to church to enjoy Easter.

    • We always wake up REALLY early for Sunrise Mass at the beach. This year we are afraid our toddler may take a sunrise swim during Mass, but we'll see how it goes!

    • Kadie76

      We hit up all the egg hunts in our area

    • Lynner

      I have made a easter bunny cake out of two round cakes, covered in coconut since I was a teenager. Trust me, my own kids are now well beyond teenagers so it has been a long time that I've made this cake. Thanks for such a great giveaway

    • Staylor682

      as a family we dye easter eggs together.

    • Danamgoshorn

      Reading the Easter story while devouring Easter candy before church.

    • Bella

      growing up we always got new Easter clothes and drove to Look Out Mountain every year, had a picnic, we have tried to carry on that tradition with my children.

    • Our2sons

      Always have Easter dinner with my in-laws after church. This year will be different. My father-in-law went home to be with Jesus on March 1 of this year. My boys will really miss him this year.

    • Christina

      We would always dye eggs together and play hide-n-seek with them. I look forward to doing the same with my son who is now 1yr old. Oh, I'm so excited.

      Thank you for the great giveaway. My son and I love to read together.

    • Lyrak

      We love the confetti-filled eggs. You prick a hole on each end of a raw egg then blow the contents into a bowl. Rinse out the eggshell and let it dry thoroughly. After it's dry, open the hole on the top of the shell enough that you can put confetti into the shell. Cover the hole with a glued-on piece of tissue paper. The eggshell can be dyed prior to filling with confetti, if you want.

    • MudMom

      We love to listen to the Easter story at church and then have a HUGE Easter egg hunt! We attend a small church, but Easter is always a big deal!

    • Christine

      We ride to a Sunday Service on Easter Sunday and then go to my friend Melba's house to watch their grand kids go Easter Egg hunting because my grand daughter is at her mee maws house for Easter. The following Sunday we celebrate with her. I cook a fabulous belated Easter brunch by the pool for my parents, her family and she goes Easter Egg hunting with us too!

    • Pnutt024

      My favorite Easter tradition is dying eggs with my mom. We do this every Saturday before Easter. I now have two small children and am so thrilled that we get to do this again this year!!

    • annemarie73

      My grandmother used to hide eggs for an Easter egg hunt and she would fill a bunch with money from her change box. It was always fun to see who would get a $5 bill or other money. Now we do the same for our kids.

    • Riderholler2

      We always go to church and add fresh cut flowers from our garden to the Easter Cross in front of the church. Its's amazing to come out after the service and see how the
      cross has bloomed.

    • Anne

      We make it a point to find a rabbit on Easter day! Ever since my hustband and I were married we have found one every Easter! Now that my daughter is 1 and loving animals we hope to continue the tradition! I don't think it will be that hard this year as our neighbors now have nine of their own!

    • Summer

      Going to a church service in our prettiest clothes of the year, celebrating our risen Lord is by far my favorite tradition!

    • Dialelder

      We like to make the resurrection cookies. You crack eggs, beat pecans and place the cookies in a cold oven overnight. In the morning, the mixture has created a cookie with an empty center (nothing is in the tomb). The surprise on my children's faces reminds me of the ability we all innately have to believe in the impossible.

    • Notab5

      Even though we live in Columbia, SC we drive up to where my in-laws live in Indiana every year for Easter. I love church on Easter morning followed by visiting the grandparents and extended family!

    • My Aunt Sherry makes deviled eggs for Easter every year that are so good!

    • Kim Monde

      Every Easter we get tulips to brighten up our home, then after they have dried out, we plant the bulbs outdoors so we can love them from year to year.
      Kim M in NC

    • Triplettk

      We don't really have an Easter tradition yet, but I'd love to start one by recording and reading the same book every year.

    • Kristen H

      Filling an Easter basket full of goodies (inexpensive and useful!) for our daughter to open before heading to church that morning in her new pretty dress!

    • Mary W

      My mom always makes hot cross buns for easter morning.

    • Morganterichmeier

      One of our favorite traditions at Easter is to color 5 dozen eggs. We then have the neighborhood Easter egg hunt with prizes by age for those who collect the most eggs. The older kids help the younger ones – it's a win win event. We love the fun it brings out in everyone!

    • Lori

      My grandparents used to have the biggest Easter Egg hunt for the grandchildren. My “Pap” loved candy and this was his favorite holiday. Plus, he'd load the plastic eggs with money..anything from $1-20! So we NEVER got tired of hunting for eggs no matter how old we got. Now that he's gone we are continuing the Egg Hunt for our children. Can't wait to see them as 12 year old still running to get the “loaded” candy eggs.

    • Shannon

      We don't really have any Easter traditions yet, as our son is only 1 and he was just too little last year to really enjoy everything. I do have his pair of bunny ears from last year. I took his picture and he actually kept them on (impressive for a 7-month-old) and it was so adorable, I'd like to continue it. I plan on taking another picture of him on the sofa this year, wearing his bunny ears and showing off his Easter basket. I'd love to have a series of him growing and changing over the years. Hopefully they'll make it to the next sibling and we can have photos of them as well.

    • Dnrufener1

      My mom makes jello eggs, but she makes them extra special. She makes them deviled jello eggs by cutting them in half and putting whipped cream on them so they look like deviled eggs! I also loved them as a kid!

    • Kelly Boyd

      We color Easter eggs on Saturday…and after the kids go to bed we hide them and have an Easter egg hunt on Sunday :)

    • Ddeese

      Growing up we always made “Easter Nest” for the Easter Bunny to leave our goodies in. We would take newspaper and lay out and then go out searching for grass and all sorts of beautiful flowers. We would take our grass and make a nest and then adorn it with all of the flowers. My favorite is to always find Dogwood flowers and make a white cross with them. It's so much more fun than getting a bought basket…it's something special and unique. It's a tradition that I have LOVED passing down to my children as well.

    • Ashley

      Easter vacation trip to the beach. Perfect weather and a perfect time to get away and enjoy some down time.

    • cabingirlsmommy

      My favorite Easter Tradition is attending an Easter Service. Without Easter my faith is worthless. I praise Him because he LIVES!

    • Jenny

      When I was younger; one of my Grandmothers, who lived 2 hrs away, would send us a huge Easter basket for the whole family. It was always filled with our favorite candy and a few plastic eggs w/ each of our names on them. Some of the plastic eggs would jingle and some would just have our favorite candy in them. It was always a big deal in our house to see what goodies MawMaw sent us. Although it was not the reason to celebrate the day; it certainly made it more exciting as a small child. I still to this day see Snickers eggs and think of her awesome baskets.

    • Amy

      Hunting Easter eggs. It is so exciting to see the kids faces!

    • Laduga

      Church on Easter Sunday, a delicious Easter dinner, and hunting Easter eggs

    • Our only real tradition besides Easter mass and Easter dinner with one of our families is attending our town's Easter egg hunt regardless of how bundled up we have to get for it.

    • Kendrareisinger

      We prepare a Easter nest in the yard on Saturday made from any blooming flowers in the yard and area. In the center of the nest we put Easter grass. This is where the Easter basket is found the next morning. (In Case of rain)..the nest is built on the porch.

    • Shannon

      My favorite Easter tradition is watching the reenactment of Jesus' crucifixion/resurrection. It's such an important part of our lives and it is such a great reminder of all that we live for and all that He has given/gives.

    • mary

      Since I was child we always gathered at my grandmother's house for Easter dinner. I'm 52 years old now with grown children of my own. My grandmother is in an assisted living home now. She has the beginning of alzhimers. When I go to see her she knows me sometimes. It's sad to see traditions change. We still gather together, but at my Aunt's house now. Easter is a time of families getting together and celebrating with one another.

    • copperswifey

      We always go to the Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday night. It is my favorite Mass of the whole year!

    • Ncsunikki

      every year we have an Easter egg hunt, only the kids hide them for the adults! We have a ball and do it because of my Grandma who loved to hunt eggs as much as the kids do. We lost her this past November, and we'll be hunting to honor her memory this year.

    • Babydoll 1999

      We don't have a tradition really. I would like to start one this year by reading to the kids about the resurrection of Jesus and how blessed we are that he died for us.

    • Dcountess

      I love the family dinners!

    • Mary E

      I love going to sunrise service and then eating a big lunch with family. We finish the day with an Easter egg hunt!

    • Plusonemhire

      My families favorite Easter tradition is to attend church on Easter because that's the truth behind the holiday. After we love to enjoy candy and a nice baked Ham! We also end up watching the newly released to DVD Disney movies (they always come out just in time for Easter)

    • HeatherAnne:)

      We hide plastic eggs full of treats all over the house and outside (weather permitting) and do a big hunt!

      Going to Easter service at church and having lunch with family.

    • Gee

      We make decorative eggs including one special egg that everyone longs to fine. The persons with the special egg and the most eggs get a prize. It's a great family event.

    • Elizabeth M.

      Having an Easter egg hunt (one egg has a clue that leads to the next…) before church, getting in our Easter best and going to church to celebrate the reason for Easter! Then spending the day with family!

    • RebeccaFer

      Our tradition is my daughter running down the stairs to find her basket and then go ahead and find her eggs … and Mom running after her with the camera! Lol. :D

    • Venus_28976

      My fav easter tradition growing up was going to my uncle mikes. We'd have a big family barbecue and then he'd hide easter eggs for us to find. He always had a special egg that he hid. He's been gone for twelve years now but I always think of him at easter. Now that I have kids of my own I always hide eggs for my son to find

    • Boz2202

      We always attend Easter service. Since my little one turned “1”last year we could have our first Easter Egg hunt. It was so fun watching her pick each egg up and put it in her basket. We also put a little something special around one egg and she was just over the moon about it that we'll probably do the same thing again this year.

    • Kristy

      going to mass to celebrate the life of Christ..followed by an Easter egg hunt….and then a yummy meal of ham, sweet potatoes with lots of marshmallows, green bean casserole, apple pie, and lots of sweet tea…..of course you then have to have a nap…ha,ha

      I love getting together with family.

    • Kasey

    • Vanessa_mcentire

      I love doing the eggs everyday and having something in them that tells a part of the meaning of Easter..

    • Lauree

      We have a neighborhood egg hunt. We include all the kids and hide eggs that contain candy and money. the kids have a blast while the parenst catch up on things that have taken place during the winter months when we are not outside, socializing as much. Fun is had by all!

    • KelA

      A brand new set of Sunday clothes for everyone plus sunrise service:)

    • Spencer Johnson

      My wife continues the tradition of making the easter bunny cake. It is one that her grandmother had. Some years it takes multiple tries to get the icing right. It is a great way to bring the family together remebering the past, live in the present and look forward to the future.

    • Acurts

      Easter service, then a big lunch, then an egg hunt

    • Doodle3740

      Our favorite Easter Tradition is dying eggs with my two wonderful daughters. We also make cookies or cupcakes and I let them do all the decorating for both the sweet treats and the eggs!! They absolutely love it. We go to church to celebrate our Risen Saviour! After church we meet with family for a Easter lunch with fun and celebration and of course an Easter Egg Hunt!

    • Sarah

      I love these books! We spend Easter at church, celebrating our risen Lord!

    • Redseichie

      favorite Easter tradition: kids turning the timer up on the eggs, so they're undercooked for the Easter egg hunt. Makes for a rather messy hunt, but fun :)

    • Ywx17

      spend all day together, eat and egg hunt

    • Bltuthill

      We always go to a great brunch after the Easter church service! The kids love the Bunny and we love the food!

    • Tina

      Easter Sunday worship and big brunch afterwards.

    • Christineyoung27

      Sunday service to celebrate our risen Lord followed by an Easter egg hunt and Easter dinner with family.

    • Our family celebrates our risen Savior at a special Easter Sunday church service every year. My mom made my sister and I a handmade heirloom easter dress every year to make the day even more special. Now she does the same for our little girls :) So special and I'll never forget entering the Lord's house on Easter sunday morning in my special dress for such a special occasion.

    • Meghan

      For the 11 days leading up to easter, we open a “resurrection egg” each day. They are plastic eggs filled with something from the “Easter Story.” i.e. Crown of Thorns, cup, sponge, dice (throwing lots for Jesus' clothes), etc. We explain the significance of whatever is our egg and read the corresponding Bible Verse(s). On Easter Sunday, the last egg is empty! It signifies the empty tomb. We also make “Empty Tomb” cookies the night before Easter and they are in the oven all night. We all go to church on Sunday to celebrate Jesus' resurrection, and afterwards, we eat our cookies (but not too many to spoil our Easter Lunch)! :)

    • Anna

      Our favorite Easter tradition is dyeing eggs the night before. Then, our kindergarten son gets to do a sort of treasure hunt to find his Easter Basket. We all go to church and then we have a home-cooked meal. Last year we had lamb, haroset and matzo ball soup. Not sure what's on the menu yet for this year.

    • Shyde

      Before church we would find the filled Easter baskets that the “Easter Bunny” hid somewhere in our house. When we were very young there was always a trail of cotton from the bunny tail to help us out. My dad started this trail of cotton tradition when I was child and I still use it for my boys today. They love following the cotton ball trail to a basket full of Easter treats.

    • Meganjparker

      Our family celebrates the death, burial, and resurrection every Sunday, so Easter Sunday isn't that special of a day for us, BUT I will always treasure and love Beatrix Potter books (especially Petter Rabbit) because my grandmother loved them so. Also, she would use a 9″ round cake and divide it in half and turn it up on the straight sides (and put the 2 halves togther) to make a cocunut bunny cake. She even used green food coloring to make the coconut into grass around the bunny. So cute and I will continue this tradition with my son who just turned 1.

    • My favorite Easter tradition is to bake those Easter Eve cookies where we seal (tape) the cookies into the “tomb” (oven) to bake.

      My In-laws have another AWESOME tradition. We eat a passover meal (no, we're not Jewish, but Baptist) to remind ourselves of the bitterness and suffering that came to Jewish people and Jesus himself in the days/hours before Good Friday. THEN, we enjoy the yummy Easter meal all the more fully!

    • Cari Ann

      My family gets up early on Easter Morning and after the frantic search for all of the eggs that the Easter Bunny hid around the house, we all make breakfast together in our pajamas! Bunny shaped pancakes with bacon whiskers are always on the menu. We eat breakfast and then start a ham in the crockpot so that it can cook while we head off to church!

    • Adamsdmd

      Attending a sunrise service Easter morning with our family.

      So many wonderful traditions! Easter is an extra special day at church, where we take communion. Then we return home for a family meal. We usually like to get the family together and hide eggs for the kids with prizes inside. One year, I put change in all of the eggs and let the kids count how much they got! I love starting new traditions for my three little girls, because I didn't really have “traditions” growing up.

    • Patti

      Our Easter tradition is so special. We attend church together as a family. Our children are grown and have families of their own now. We go to our Daughter and son-in-laws and have dinner. For dessert, is the famous bunny cake. When our kids were little, I made them a bunny cake every Easter without fail. When they all left, I quit making it. The first year we went to our daughter's, there was the bunny cake. The tradition has carried on and I do believe my daughter-in-law makes it, too. Something small to others, but sweet and special to us. Also helps that the 3, almost 4 now, grandchildren love it! :)

    • Aprilpcnm

      Our family's Easter tradition starts with sunrise service. Then we return home forbreakfast and easter baskets…followed by a easter egg hunt for the children.

    • Jdismukes82

      We always get Easter baskets before church!

    • JMichelle

      My family enjoys the Easter Egg Hunt at the State Park!

    • Janelniles

      it would have to be getting new church clothes, easter baskets, dying eggs and then going to what once was my grandpa's house (now my uncle's since he has passed) to have family dinner and hunt eggs. I am 33 and have done this every year since I was born, first me and my mom and now with my kids!

    • happymom4

      The day before Easter, we dye and decorate Easter eggs. Then we have Easter baskets sitting out for our kids to find in the morning. After church we head over to my grandparents house for lunch and an Easter egg hunt. :-)

    • Cassie

      We do several little traditions for Easter – we always invite a special friend to make Easter eggs with and we always take a family picture before church.

    • Elizabethmomof3

      Since moving to Charlotte we have left behind all our family in Charleston. So when we visit on Easter we have a HUGE Easter egg hunt after church with our whole family. Love it!

    • Jhhedrick22

      Hiding Easter eggs over and over…Yes, I am 26 years old and still hide Easter eggs! You are never too old to try and beat your siblings at something! :)

    • Princessanna3

      This is the first Easter that my son (18 months ) is able to participate in Easter activities… Can't wait to start new traditions !!

    • Bea Kniseley

      We have a treasure hunt. Each person gets an egg w/a clue of where to find their next egg, which has a clue to the next and so on. Each egg, also, has a surprise..a piece of candy, sticker, small toy, etc. The seventh egg tells where to go to search for their basket. The kids love it, young and old.

    • Elizabethggolden

      Easter egg hunts for the kids. Bloody mary's for the parents. Fellowship, food, and fun with friends and family all day! Good times.

    • Darla Cunningham

      For over 40 years ago my grandmother started an Easter Tree. When someone in our family is born or gets married she will purchase an egg and put our name on it.So every Easter after breakfast every one will go to the “Tree” look for their egg it will have a # on the egg and we all go outside to look for our gift with our #. It is so much fun for everyone:)

    • Rbntpg

      My children always hunted their eggs before church – can't wait to continue this with my granddaughter.

    • Maria S

      We always went to the Easter Egg Hunt at Keysa Park. Since I am the oldest of nine children, one of us usually won a huge chocolate bunny! :) Then we had to share with the rest of the family when we got home!

    • Ninners9

      My kids and I dye eggs the night before Easter and then after church on Easter day we go to my inlaws and hunt eggs with my niece and nephew. It is always so fun watching them hunt the eggs and then whoever has the most gets a large chocolate bunny, the next gets one a little smaller, and so on.

    • Srpatton73

      Of course Egg hunting.

    • Leslie

      Hooray for super deals! Every year since I was a kid, we've colored Easter eggs. Now, we do it with my three little ones.

    • cdubs333

      growing up we'd always get up before sunrise and take poptarts with us down a converted railroad track near a bridge and wait for the sun to rise every Easter morning.

    • Christina

      Every year my mom hid candy and eggs all around the house, one year my dad came home after she put the candy out and he started eating all the candy she “hid” on our couch.

    • Jamiepooh3

      we color eggs and have wonderful Speckeled deviled eggs as part of our easter dinner after the Easter Bunny comes to see the colored eggs

    • wendy

      our ultimate easter experience is the Easter Egg Hunt for our kids & nephews and then we top it off by stocking up (sales, sales, sales) post-Easter, for next year's hunt!

    • Te

      we spend time at all different family

    • SmoochTheCook

      We hide an Easter basket the night before for each kid and they have to locate them. I've added a little to it by having clues for a treasure hunt. Then, when it's all done, we go to church for the Easter egg hunt.

    • Mearnold115

      My family does the basic Easter egg decorating and egg hunts every year. It's pretty standard but fun.

    • JJandJules

      I always hide my kids baskets and they have soooo much fun trying to find their own. They always keep it a secret if they find someone elses, which warms a momma's heart too! Then we go hide their eggs, multiple times!

    • Geri A Scott

      We do a family celebration at Grandmas and the girls get dressed up in their pretty outfits before dinner!

    • betsy

      My two boys are now starting to enjoy the holidays, especially the four year old. We have started to color our Easter eggs the day before Easter, which excites him to the Easter Egg hunt the following morning!

    • On the Saturday before Easter Sunday, all my children and grandchildren gather at my house and we have a big potluck dinner and a big Easter Egg hunt.

    • Hapittman

      Our church has a pancake breakfast Easter sunday, and the kids love getting dressed up and having breakfast with all their friend!

    • Jmhall3756

      My favorite Easter tradition is the huge church Easter egg hunt we have. We all get together and eat (of course) and then hide eggs for the kids all afternoon.

    • Bell7869

      We love to go to church ,eat way to much and then hide the easter eggs for the kids
      my fav was when one of the grandkids stole the eggs from the other grankids basket :)

    • Sheri

      We have a family Easter egg hunt in the yard – wonderful memories we are making each year.

    • Marie148

      We leave my sons Easter baskets by the back door so it's easy for the Easter Bunny to just hop in and fill them. He has 3 baskets every year…my mom gave him a special Hallmark one for his first Easter when he was 3 weeks old, his aunt made him a beautiful little lamb basket also for his first Easter and the current years regular basket. He jumps up every Easter morning and runs to the back door to see what the Easter Bunny left.

    • Melody

      My favorite Easter tradition is the Sonrise service! Though getting up early is not fun…it's always great to remember how people must have felt to arise early that morning…to an empty tomb!!

    • Lcohn27

      We gather with our extended family and friends and share a special meal and easter egg hunt

    • Gracieb44

      We have always had to hunt for our easter baskets as soon as we get up, and now that I have two boys I make them do the same thing, and they love it, but not as much as me!

    • Saverjenny

      We always have an easter egg hunt and the kids love to find the “golden egg”!

    • Keholley

      We leave their Easter baskets outside the front door so the Easter bunny can find them and fill them up and then he hides them but luckily he leaves them hooked to a string and the other end of the string is at our children's door (too hard otherwise!).

    • Lori

      We always have an Easter egg hunt followed later by a family dinner of ham, mashed potatoes and green beens.

    • Amanda

      We go to our church to enjoy a “Sonrise” breakfast, have a wonderful Easter service, then we go home to a big ham dinner and hide Easter eggs for our son. We try to make it a week long event with dying eggs and our church Easter egg hunt on Saturday.

    • Lbooth169

      Our Easter tradition is lunch together. :)

    • Agriff

      One of my favorite Easter traditions is making resurrection rolls with my kiddos. We take a crescent roll, which represents the tomb they laid Jesus' body in. Dip a jumbo marshmallow in oil and place it in the center of the crescent roll. Sprinkle cinnamon on the marshmallow. The white marshmallow represents Jesus because He is sinless. They anointed Jesus' body with oil and spices because they loved Him. Wrap the crescent roll around the marshmallow and spices. Place in a pan and bake. Closing the oven represents rolling the stone in front of the tomb. The marshmallow will melt and disappear during the cooking process, which represents Jesus rising from the grave. I love this visual for teaching children about our Savior's death, burial, and resurrection, which is the whole reason for the celebration of Easter

    • Ali

      My favorite tradition and eating dinner with my family and then going outside to enjoy the beautiful weather!

    • We always have a dinner complete with ham and all the trimmings…then, we take the kids outside to play with bubbles and pick flowers for mimi and nana.

    • coffeemom

      One of our favorite Easter traditions is our Easter egg hunt. It is always after church and now is for my grandchildren because my babies have grown up! We hide plastic eggs with candy and little toys.The funnest (sp?) part is finding the one egg with the $ in it. How much is in there?? HMMMM you have to find all the eggs before you can open any of them. :) definitely fun and exciting to watch the anticipation on everyone' s faces!!

    • Elizabeth

      Our favorite Easter tradition is coloring eggs together. We always have so much fun!

    • Clp3986

      My favorite tradition and eating dinner with my family and then going outside to enjoy the beautiful weather, and watching my granddaughter hunt easter eggs.

    • Csassie197

      We are starting a new tradition this year – now that we have a baby girl! Egg hunt at home in the morning, then church!

    • Etta

      We make Pysanky (Ukranian Easter Eggs) a tradition passed on by my grandmother.

    • Andy

      I have always loved dyeing Easter eggs, and trying new methods every year. Sometimes we draw on them with a white crayon first, sometimes we dip them in layers of rainbow colors, sometimes we add glitter or make special holders!

    • alabamamommy4

      Going to church with my whole family and then to my sister's house for lunch and the annual Easter egg hunt!

    • Kph7604

      My girls and I love coloring the eggs, but their favorite part is how the Easter Bunny always leaves a trail of eggs on Easter morning that lead to their filled Easter Basket. As soon as they wake up…the hunt is on for that basket. Love it…

    • Kph7604

      Just posted my Easter story, but somehow the names were garbled …Oh well still a cute story.

    • Jacksosn2

      We spend the day together (making memories and bbq'ing)…something that dosent happen anywhere near enough as it should

    • Nan

      Our family is to always dress in matching new Easter outfits.

    • Kph7604

      OK, not sure of the confusion on how Csassie 197 got on my story, but I think her story was the next one with no name…Technology works great sometimes, but other times…

    • Elizabeth

      Our family always goes to sunrise service at the lake.

    • Ruth

      Our best tradition is the egg hunt.

    • lilchief27

      We go to a church-related national convention on Easter weekend so a fancy meal at home won't work. At the convention, we get to spend time with my husband's side of the family (who are all out of town) & then on Sunday after the convention we go to our favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch. Nothing says Easter like fajitas & tacos! It is a tradition that our kids love b/c they get to be with their cousins for the weekend.

    • Lindsay Strot

      My favorite Easter tradition is that we all get together and take generation pictures. We now have 4 generations that get together on holidays. It is so special and we will cherish those photos forever!

    • Smashmonst

      W love to make and eat Jello eggs for easter!! They are the best and so unique.

    • Mamamiaof2

      My favorite tradition is getting together and dying the Easter eggs. Even when it was just my husband and I we still dyed Easter eggs together. Now we have a 2 year old and a 4month old and I cannot wait to dye Easter eggs!! Taking pictures of us and the kids with colors everywhere are just so awesome!! I love my babies…

    • Stillinlove214

      My family has celebrated Easter in this way for 24 yrs… Wake up to Easter baskets, new outfits (and sometimes just new to us…lol) for Easter, off to Church, follwed by a Candy Shower from the roof, then home to a large family dinner where everyone in driving distance meets. After dinner its relax and enjoy being together, followed by an Egg Hunt in the evening before Sunset. These times have become more precious as my Grandparents and parents have become older. The last several yrs we've had four generations represented. As times become harder there is nothing more important then knowing the you have God and family you can depend on, and family moments are always important.

    • Forrestreed28

      Having a fun Easter Egg hunt after lunch. Everyone looks for eggs, kids and adults, my dad puts a $5 bill in one egg to add extra excitement. It is just a fun time for all.

    • amyinsc

      Getting up to watch the children find their Easter Baskets, then church, then a big lunch with our extended family. I love Easter. For all of it's religious meanings, as well as it represents spring, a new beginning…my favorite time of year!

    • Momma Cartlidge

      I have loved coloring eggs as long as I can remember. Long past the time kids usually want to, I could be found every Easter Eve diligently color my eggs. When I had a child this was something I looked forward to. Now every year my children and I try out lots of different techniques and love hiding and finding them. We have also made a point to get pictures taken with the Easter bunny. The progress that can be seen within these pictures from year to year is amazing!

    • Jmholley

      We have our family and friends over, we go fishing, kids play, ride 4 wheelers and hide Easter Eggs,all the parents give them money to the kids who find the most and who finds the less and everything in between!!

    • mamac

      Oh how I love Easter, the purpose and the traditions. The favorite of family traditions is dying eggs then hiding them.

    • Chris B.

      We do the traditional egg coloring but when I was a child, our Easter baskets were hidden and we had to find the basket. One year it was in the dishwasher, another the laundry shoot, etc. We also take a family picture in our matching Easter outfits. I just love Easter Morning!

    • Jelball

      I love the fact that my family has always been in church, since I was a baby. So Easter is a really special time to remember what Jesus gave us and to worship him as a family.

    • Mrsparsons14

      This will be my daugher's first Easter and even though she is only going to be 10 weeks old, I can't wait to make Easter special for her. Not just about the Easter bunny but about Christ her savior..I want her to hear about these things even at 10 weeks. Thats 10 weeks God has blessed us with her! We are very blessed and can't wait to celebrate His rising!

    • Hannahjean83

      So excited about Easter this year! Our church choir always sings a special song and then we always try to eat lunch with all the family. My 5 year sings “He arose” all the time.

    • Michelle

      The kids get dressed up in their Easter dresses and we go to church. This is a great time to remember the reason for the season, Jesus Christ.

    • Jacketjen

      We make “Resurrection Rolls” by baking a cinnamon-sugared marshmallow wrapped in a crescent roll. The marshmallow melts, making an empty “tomb.” Yummy, and a great opportunity to talk about Christ! :)

    • easyrider3

      My favorite tradition is the Easter Egg hunt by far the kids excitment is contagious.

    • Marcie Gladwell

      One of our favorite Easter traditions is the “Living Cross' at our church. A wooden cross is erected and draped with a purple scarf the week before Easter. On Good Friday, the purple scarf is replaced with a black one. On Easter Morning it is replaced with a WHITE one. As families come to church, we put live flowers all over the cross (it has been covered with chicken wire that you can't really see but holds the flowers in place). By the time every one has arrived, the cross is covered with living flowers. Every family has their picture taken near the cross.

    • Sherri

      We go to Ft. Pulaski every easter for a cookout on the pavillion. We grill steaks and everyone brings a side dish from home and after eating we have a big easter egg hunt for all the kids. The jack pot egg has like $20 in it and the kid that finds that egg is always super excited!

    • Nadine Y.

      Our family tradition is church, decorating eggs and hunting for eggs in our backyard, lots of chocolate!

    • Chellemills

      My favorite Easter tradition growing up and even now w/ my own children is to wake up that Sunday morning and the easter basket goodies sitting on the table where the Easter bunny left every individual their own pile and then going to church to worship the King!! God bless~

    • Angiemb

      my favorite easter tradition is watching my own children hunt for eggs, i remember how fun it was when i was little and now its even more exciting to watch them:)

    • Kas

      Going to church to celebrate the Real Reason we have Easter in the first place, Death and Ressurection of Jesus Christ! Generally, after church we have dinner with family and the kids celebrate with a fun candy filled egg hunt. Lots of family time and celebrating the greratest gift ever given, the gift of salvation, from Jesus Christ for dying for our sins and rising again.

    • Wowakas

      Sunrise service….cold crisp air, silence of the morning just beautiful.

    • Tara

      We have carried this tradition through my family since I was a little girl. It is something my mother did for us and all the children love it. We wake up Easter morning to start off our hunt by looking for our baskets. Yes we make them special for that particular child and hide them in the house and they have to find it. It just adds a little fun and gets them ready to look for all thise eggs, especially the Golden one our tradition has always been to have money in it!

    • Elizabeth K.

      We spend Saturday night at my mom's house which is in my hometown with all my cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. and on Easter Sunday we enjoy service at our small country church where my husband and I were married and our daughter was baptized. Then we eat a big lunch at my cousin's country home and all the kids in the family have an egg hunt on her land. It is always a great time!

    • Shalena_douthit09

      Church/MOPS easter egg hunt the day before, coloring hard boiled eggs the night before and then getting up the next morning to go to church to worship the Lord in our new Easter outfits.

    • Rachel Fiedler

      Starting new traditions now that we have a baby! always celebrating Christs love for us!

    • Tc330

      As grandparents living far from kids and grandkids, when they visit we dye 3 or 4 dozen hard boiled eggs in various colors. Then we hid them and let the kids find them over and over until they are ready to eat them.

    • mammasc

      My kids are getting older 10 and 12 but still love dying eggs! Not so much hiding them anymore but they lover coloring them!

    • krisshaw

      Our newest Easter tradition started a few years ago when the first grandchildren were born into my family. They were too little to hunt for eggs that first Easter, so my mom decided to do an adult Easter egg hunt with money and a golden egg worth $50. It was a knock down drag out to see who was going to find that egg. It's gotta be pretty funny to see a bunch of 20 & 30 year olds running around looking for eggs. Even though more grandchildren have been born and are able to have their own Easter egg hunt, we still have our competitive adult Easter egg hunt!!

    • ColaMom

      We would wake up Easter morning and hunt for our baskets- the Easter Bunny had hidden them throughout the house…luckily with 4 of us we didn't have to look too long! I can't wait for my son to be old enough so that we can start this tradition with him!

    • Jamieandandre

      We love reading the Easter story the night before Easter. Of course, we dye eggs and on Easter morning when the kiddos wake up they have baskets and eggs scattered throughout the house to find. It's always a day of fun and smiles!!

    • Diane

      We bake special cookies which tell the story of Christ's death and resurrection. The cookies are sealed in the oven overnight so that in the morning they can discover that the center of the cookie is empty, just like the tomb. Praise God He died for our sins!!

    • Skharvey1

      Our Easter tradition is have a big family lunch after church. Hiding eggs with grandsons is a key feature and worshipping our Risen Savior!

    • Steph4575

      My favorite Easter tradition is the Easter egg hunt! Oh and the Easter basket, we always fill the Easter baskets with toys that the kids will enjoy rather than a generic Easter basket filled with candy or something.

    • Twinmom2

      My boys are only 2 and a half (they are twins) so we are working on creating new traditions. My husband's family growing up did an easter egg hunt with a golden egg. Whomever found it got the large chocolate bunny. We are thinking about starting that with our boys. We tried an egg hunt last year, a small one and they had fun so this year we will step it up a little.

    • Chelsea

      Our favorite Easter tradition is going to our church's Eggstravaganza every year. They have inflatables, train rides, egg hunts all day long, and crafts for the kids. I love celebrating Easter with my family.

    • Jessica

      I have a little one so it will be fun to start our own family traditions. We usually all go to church and then meet up for a big family lunch!

    • Lmoore714

      We enjoy the sunrise service in our community. In years past, all the grandchildren would enjoy an egg hunt at my mother's. After they found the eggs, they would hide them for their dads to find. It was so much fun, even now, as grownups, they still talk about hiding the eggs for their fathers.

      I too love the Hallmark recordable books. My husband and I recorded the Christmas story for or granddaughter. My daughter bought one and had each member of the family from the youngest to the oldest record one page each. Those will be treasured for years to come!

    • KelliB

      Easter egg hunt in our neighborhood!

    • Grisy

      Having all the family together and share a homemade Easter brunch

    • cammy

      I love Easter, the best part of a Christian's life.If Jesus would've not risen from the dead what sense would've been for Him to be born and die on the cross?I do love taking our kids to church and teach them what Easter is ALL about! I do enjoy taking them for a Easer hunt but most importantly I want to make sure why we celebrate it! Happy Easter to you All!

    • NancyH

      I make “bunny bread” – roll dough shaped like a bunny face, frosted with jelly bean eyes and mouth and licorice whiskers!

    • Slquinones

      Our favorite tradition is the egg hunt. My family loves to hide the eggs, and watch the boys find them. Each year it gets a little more challenging to find good hiding places!

    • Tonya

      My family participates in a family tradition that we have shared with the families and churches we have had the privilege to serve at ( my husband is a pastor). Each year we put up a wooden cross that is covered with chicken wire. On Easter Sunday morning everyone is invited to add fresh flowers to the cross in honor of our risen Savior. The cross is absolutely beautiful when our Easter service begins.

    • HSmom2004

      Each year, our family goes to Maundy Thursday service at our church. On Good Friday, we continue the service at the Rock Church (St. Olaf Kirke), which was the original building that was built in 1886 with no electricity, but amazing accoustics, for the story of Jesus' last hours. On Sunday morning, the girls get dressed in their Sunday best and at least each have new shoes, if not new dresses, too. They receive a special Easter gift and we go to worship service to celebrate that Jesus is risen from the dead and is alive – Alleluia! (As they are young, we generally do not make the sunrise service.) We then come home and celebrate Easter together and, if possible, invite our extended family to join us. As our younger daughter was baptized on Easter Sunday, we also discuss their baptisms with them on Easter and the importance of that event in each of our lives.

    • Hoodymom

      My favorite tradition was the egg hunt. My Grandpa always put money in the eggs so that we could get the candy that we wanted. It was fun to go to the local gas station and get as much as our money would buy. I would love to have a storybook with my Grandpa reading it.

    • Sthomas8105

      We have all the family for a big Easter dinner with ham and fixings! Then we go outside and hide eggs for the 15 kids! So much food, fun, and fellowship!

      New dresses and white shoes. Family dinner with lots of favorites! <3

    • Susan

      Our dinner menu is a tradition. It is always baked ham, potato salad, baby lima beans, deviled eggs, and rolls. We usually have either a lemon cake or strawberry shortcake for dessert.

    • Amygam13

      When I was a kid I treasured going to my grandparents house and Having Sunday dinner and having a Huge Egg hunt with all my cousins. I am proud to say that that tradition carries on with my Husband's family. There are so many of us we can't fit in the house.

    • Alcy01

      We have a family photo taken. My husband is not a huge fan of being in pictures, but he puts up with it for Easter and it is very nice with our dressy church clothes on for the occasion!

    • Carrieknewell

      When I was young, we would all go to my great aunt's house and have a huge easter egg hunt! This made Easter one of my favorite holidays as a child!

    • Amy

      We love getting together with all the family to celebrate the resurrection of Christ! We are just in the beginning stages of establishing traditions for our kids (ages 2 and 0). I enjoyed reading everyones comments and getting some ideas!

    • Bmg8098

      As a child we would always go to grandma's house and have a feast. Then follow that with a egg hunt with all 12 of the cousins.

    • Ashley F

      Hunting easter eggs of course!!

    • Betty

      I'm a proud grandma of 5 little ones,on Easter we go to church of course and I cook a especial dinner for my family.We enjoy this special time toguether giving Thanks to The Lord for all ours blessings.

    • ReGina

      Our favorite Easter tradition started when my oldest was bored with easter Egg hunting, I throw colored jelly beans in our yard, he has to find one of each color, that represent the witness story and he wears his witness bead bracelet, which we make, to remind him of the colors!

    • Happymomc

      Midnight mass, Easter egg hunting and a huge lunch!

    • Angel_ann

      My girls and I color and decorate eggs, we love trying different techniques.

    • Heidi

      When I was young my parents would read to us from the Bible about the death and resurrection of Jesus. They would also fill Easter baskets and hide them around the house. My husband and I have continued to do these things with our three sons. I love telling them the awesome story of Jesus and how he paid the price for us on the cross but then conquered death so we could live eternally with Him!

    • Cohensmom06

      We all get together for dinner and have a big egg hunt.

    • April

      I love to get all my grandchildren together and make Easter cookies and color Easter eggs for the big Easter egg hunt. We have our entire family gather after Easter Morning church sevice for a Easter Egg hunt. Great memories and wonderful time spent together.

    • Studioami

      We have a common easter tradition and that is to hunt eggs with the little ones. We haven't had any little ones for a while, but my cousin is expecting so we will have more little ones to hunt eggs soon.

    • Holley

      We have a huge easter egg hunt each year with all of our family and firends. There is really nothing better than getting ready for it and letting the kids dye eggs.

    • Lynne

      my favorite tradition is dyeing the eggs. With a father that was an art teacher – it was always a creative event

    • Tippv2j

      Coloring the eggs is always fun– but one year we wrote little messages to each other–like thank yous– I loved finding those

    • Mlyons2279

      Coloring eggs and decorating them and then going to my mom's and the kids get to hunt and find eggs with money and candy in them!

    • luvpink

      The Good ol' egg coloring and decorating. I cannot wait til I have my own children to share the traditions with.

    • janell hughes

      We have a family wide (about 60 people) Easter egg hunt. Even though we are down to about 5 children small enough to want to hunt eggs, we continue this EVERY year. It's more about the family time.

    • buying my kids easter baskets

    • Margaretb

      I was directing an Easter play at church and my oldest daughter was the angel that told Mary that Jesus was not there, but had risen. Well, during all the rehersals my daughter did not climb the ladder and sit on top (as if she were on top of the cave) and say her line. When the play occured. It was as if the real angel helped her and just as the spot light lit her up ontop of the cave, she said her lines and said it with conviction. I was so proud and touched. Needless to say she got a standing ovation.

    • Kristen

      Kind of silly by my parents do an easter egg hunt for all the grankids followed by an easter egg hunt for my husband, myself, my brother, and my sis-in-law – it's so much fun and there's always a few eggs with great prizes like gift certificates to local restaurants, etc. I just love it! :)

    • Debnrob

      Every year we start early and grow real grass in our Easter baskets! The kids love watching the grass grow and it also begins the holiday sooner so we have more time to discuss the true meaning. My husband and I also use a stencil and flour to make bunny feet throughout the house where some eggs may be hidden or a trail to their baskets! We also always get together with both sides of the families so all the children can hunt eggs together and the adults can have fellowship

    • Laurie

      We have Easter Brunch and an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids with family.

    • Patricia

      We dye Easter eggs and prepare an Easter feast and attend Mass with our extended family.

    • Heather Turner

      We color eggs, the Easter Bunny brings baskets, we go to Sunrise service at church, come back for breakfast, and we do an egg hunt.

      This year I would like to start a raw egg toss game for those old enough… with a prize of $10 gift card to Target or something.

    • Aleoxmom

      My husband is from Hungary and they have a tradition where they “water” a loved one by sprinkling scented water and saying a prayer over them for Easter. I fell in love with this tradition and we have adopted it in our family and we do it every Easter. Moreover my oldest son (5 years) has his birthday usually during the Easter holidays and he loves making up his own verse.

    • Anita

      Extended family egg hunt-the last two years we have had five generations present! How blessed we are!

    • Kathyneff

      Just all of us getting together and spending time with each other!

    • Angel_in_Charleston

      After Easter services, we make a big ham dinner and do an egg hunt in the back yard for our son. Lots of fun!

    • Msblackwood

      We have a special family gathering at “Grandmas” for the big Easter Egg Hunt. After church, we all get pictures of everyone in their Easter clothes. After that, we have a have a huge lunch with all of the fixin's. Then the time everyone has been waiting for…The Easter Egg Hunt!!! So fun! Not sure who likes it more..the kids or the adults.

    • As cliche as it is, it has to be the Easter Egg hunt. My mom's family had amazing Easter egg hunts. The kids had theirs and the adults had another for them afterward. It was always so much fun. And since they lived in the country it was over a huge yard so the eggs were everywhere. Even as I am grown one of my favorite memories was dying a HUGE basket of eggs with my 3 year old daughter to take to my grandparents house. I wanted my daughter to experience the hunts as I had when I was young. Sadly she dropped the whole bowl on the way out the door and all but a few cracked. (We still hid them :) ) It lit up my grandfathers face to see his only great grandchild hunt the eggs. Sadly by the next year he had passed away just shortly before Easter so we didn't hunt eggs. This year I plan on dying a big bowl again in his memory.

    • Jennifer

      When we came downstairs on Easter morning, our Easter baskets were always overflowing with gifts and before church, we made cookies and dyed eggs. My mom always smocked my 2 brothers and I matching outfits and made our Easter baskets from plastic and yarn and then hid Eggs all over our backyard. We got to play in our nice clothes and looking back, the photos are adorable. Having special things is important to my mom who is now a Grammie and I know she'd love to get this gift for my daughter.

    • saving46

      Our favorite Easter tradition is to have families in our church join us for Easter celebration feast and fellowship.

    • Sue

      One of my favorite things is when son leaves out carrots for the Easter Bunny. We even go to the 'fancy market' to find the ones with the green tops attached.
      :)
      Our other traditions of dyeing eggs, going to Easter egg hunts, having hot crossed buns and going to church together all make for a memorable and meaningful Easter for us.

    • Rickandteresa

      We have a party with my daughter's friends and dye eggs. Afterwards, we hide the eggs in the yard for our own Easter egg hunt.

      Our family's favorite Easter tradition for the past 20 years is to meet at Downey Park at 6:30 in the morning for sunrise Easter service. My husband and I meet my daughter, son-in-law, and their two children , along with my son-in-laws parents, and his sister and her husband. We witness the beautiful sun rise over the lake , while we sing about Christ's resurrection and assention into Heaven. After the service we all go out to eat and then watch the little ones hunt for Easter eggs…

      Our favorite Easter tradition is having all the family over and a family Easter Egg Hunt. However, since all the kids are older we use plastic eggs with clues and riddles to help find the next one. All the kids (even the 16 year old) begs for us to do this each year.

    • savin4morefamily

      We do the egg hunt and easter baskets, but the main focus is Easter service and remembering Who Easter is really about.

    • Dkshipp57

      I've been making Resserection Baskets for my daughter since she was 1 now 13. I believe in the real reason for the season. I don't put normal Easter stuff I put books crayons glue things she needs that are fun. Things change the older she gets

    • Neldahinson1

      My favorite Easter would have to be about ten years ago when all of my brothers and sisters and their families (about 65 people) started a tradition.We all get together at a lodge ,and spend the whole weekend together.we ride boats, we swim, we cookout,and we visit.The best part is Sunday morning,we have our own Sunrise Service,led by members of our family,And then we eat a big breakfast,clean up,and then it's time to go home.We also have a hugh Easter egg hunt,divided into 3 groups ,because even our grown children take part in the hunt.

    • savdxgrace

      with 7 kids, we put pennies, nickels and dimes in plastic eggs (with an occasional quarter or dollar) and had an egg hunt. after that we would eat a breakfast with chocolate chip pancakes and peanut butter/maple syrup. then it was off to church to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour!

    • sharon60

      My husband is one of 8 children and his parent's always have a HUGE Easter Egg Hunt with 300-400 eggs hidden in a nearby wooded area on their property. After church every family brings a dish and a doz or more dyed eggs, we have a big Easter meal, then all the little children, grand children, great grand children, a couple of great-great grand children and adults pile into trucks, cars, SUVs and a trailer with hay bales and take a short ride to the “hunt”. Then weather permitting the afternoon is spent playing baseball, red-rover, horse shoes and just general “catching up conversation”. Of course we all have “leftovers” before we leave so nobody has to cook dinner! These memories are held dear by my children and now my grand children are having the same wonderful experience.

    • Kcgardner

      we are always at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville TN for a Lads to Leaders convention, and follow that with lunch with the in-laws:)

    • We always go to church with the family and then take the kids on a big family egg hunt!

    • jharkey

      Our favorite and best Easter tradition is to wake up and say to each other “HE IS RISEN!” to which we reply “HE IS RISEN INDEED” then we all find our hidden Easter baskets. We then go to church in a brand new set of clothes, sing tradition hymns such as “He Arose!”. After church, we head home for a dinner of Ham, Macaroni and Cheese and lots of other family favorites. Of course, being the sweet Mom and Grandmom that I am, I always sneak a bag of jelly beans in my purse and I'm always the favorite person to sit by in church that day!! Wishing everyone a Blessed Easter!

    • Karen Crenshaw

      Our whole family gets together every Easter after church for lunch and then a big Easter egg hunt. We try to continue this tradition that our grandparents started. I now have three small grandchildren ages 2 and 4. This Easter will be so much fun, I can't wait!

We also took the boat out on the lake and everyone agreed, that for a new tradition, it was the best Easter we'd ever had. We are having our 2nd annual Easter BBQ this easter.

    • Phillips30180

      Our Easter tradition is no matter what age our daughter gets which she is almost 16. She still gets an Easter basket put out and she still hunts Easter eggs. Then we visit each set of parents and we all hunt Easter eggs. I love spending time with all of the family.

    • Savannah

      I have a 3 year old and 7 month old now… I am so grateful to start traditions with them and will go back to my own to begin them! We don't celebrate the Easter bunny, it's solely about Jesus' rising! We did wake up to baskets overflowing with goodies, often stuff for the summer! We would dress to coordinate, go to church, come home to a ham and all the fixin's and do an egg hunt in the yard! This is my husband's second year in a row being deployed, so now the girls and I take a “family” picture with the computer up and Daddy on skype with us!

    • Amy

      We go to church in the morning and then have all of the kids to my parents for a huge egg hunt. This year I'm starting the resurrection eggs, so I'm excited about that new tradition.

    • Erica

      We love going to our friends home eating breakfast together and having a massive egg hunt with tons of eggs, kids and laughs. This year will be a little different and hard. My hubby is currently in Iraq so we will continue on but it won’t be the same. I just wanted to say, we got my daughter (4 yrs old) the my little princess book and hubby recorded it and gave it to her before he left. That was 2/9 and he won’t be home for 11 months, she has listened to it every night since he left sometimes tons of times. I have even listened to it, just to hear his voice. Amazing and so special. Hopefully we can add more to the collection!

    • Kimberlywo

      we make a egg tree..we go gather some branches( we use branches that are about 3 feet tall) place them in a pretty vase then decorate with blown out eggs we made, paper bunnies my son has colored or anything else we make/color. aiden loves hanging things on his “egg tree”

    • Ortegacrew

      Favorite Easter tradition, I think it would be how fun it is to fill up the kids' baskets the night before and set them out on the table for when they wake up. Other than that, it's just about being together, going to church together, and a big family meal. Love it all!

    • Nikkiandrussell

      My family gets together the day before Easter because it is so big. This gives us more time to get to hang out & be together. We cook out, have an Easter Egg hunt for all the kiddos and have a little lamb cake for dessert. It is alsways so much fun!

      When I was little we would always go to my grandparents & have a huge Easter dinner. Since my grandfather died the family has kind of lost contact. I make it my duty to always go to my grandmothers house & help her cook and share the holidays. Now that I'm married & have kids we have at least 3 different family get togethers & getting to see the looks on my children's faces warms my heart & takes me back to when I was a child.

    • Mblack1127

      The night before we dye eggs. My family use to always get up and open our Easter baskets together. Then have a small breakfast then later that day the rest of our family meets up at someones house or some where eats and hunts eggs *real and fake* we loved the fake ones there was always something good and one always had a larger $ bill in it. Loved to find that one. :) Great time to spend with the family and enjoy each other and be thankful of my Heavenly Father!

      Dyeing eggs

    • Tara

      We haven't made any special traditions with my little ones, yet, but we look forward to finding some & making them our own.

    • Pgibb76

      We dye eggs and make sugar cookies. This tradition begun with my oldest 17 years ago.

    • Christiecoupon

      I am staring one with my daughter. There is an egg farm here and they do a massive egg hunt every year!!! This will be our second year and she LOVES going!!!

    • Minish223

      Easter basket for my 3 year old son and Big Easter egg hunt after church with the family.

    • Emilycelrod

      We love dying eggs and going to Easter Egg hunts.
      I also heard a story where they kids plant Jelly Beans and check back to see what grows. One day the parents put out easter treats in the flower garden where the jelly beans were planted.

    • Sabrina37129

      We go every year to visit the bunnies that they have at Phillips Toy Mart. They have a different theme for the bunnies homes each year & I always look forward to going.

    • Emily

      Dying Easter eggs and doing Easter egg hunts!

    • Barbie

      Just love always hunting eggs with my grandson! Thanks

    • Jill

      Every Easter Sunday, our kids come downstairs to find their Easter baskets–just a few goodies, no eggs! Then we go to church and after church we have an Easter egg hunt on our front lawn. All that is followed by a yummy Easter dinner with friends.

    • nanadish

      Easter lunch at Nannie Bea's house complete with Easter egg hunt!

    • Joan

      Church is always first with a huge family dinner following.

    • Ruth

      A favorite family tradition growing up was dying Easter eggs together as a family.

    • Allie in SC

      We always dye Easter eggs together. So much fun! We also make cards for everyone using recycled paper, scrap paper, crayons and tissue paper we've saved from Christmas. These are all great for creating colorful Easter eggs on the cards :)

    • GrammieK3

      My favorite Easter tradition is Sunrise Service. Our church has a cemetery right beside the church. We all gather in the driveway, have a service, and then go into the fellowship hall for breakfast. I always think of the friends and family that have gone on and what a celebration the next resurrection will be!!

      The children always complain about having to be up at 6am-also part of the tradition each year

    • Madhatter70

      We do the resurrection eggs every year, go to church and then afterwards have a meal with all the family.

    • Fiveodom1016

      This year we're starting a new family tradition. Since last Easter, my husband, myself, and our two little boys have moved twice with the Marine Corp. With the rising gas prices we will not be able to go home to be with our family for our usual dinner and Easter egg hunt. This year we have decided to start our own tradition and make a huge dinner and invite other Marines over that are without their families as well. I cant wait! We have 4 guys coming already and more are sure to follow! Happy Easter everyone!!

    • Glasslady56

      We always have a big meal and easter egg hunt.

    • rachel

      We love to decorate our easter egg tree in the front yard. This is our son's first Easter and he helped decorate too!

    • Kristen

      I want to start a new tradition this year for our 1 and 2 year old girls. I want them to do a private easter egg hunt in the back yard. I think they will have a blast :)

    • CorrieH

      It is when we say grace before Easter dinner… when we thank Him for so many blessings and truly remember what this day stands for and what He gave to save us….

      And there are always deviled eggs!

    • Bjmukay

      My favorite Easter tradition is getting up before sunrise on Easter Sunday to attend sunrise service, then going to church after church we always had a family egg hunt at my grandparents wiht all of us kids there.

    • Church…. it's a must for every year :)

    • Sekellickh

      My favorite tradition, was getting ready for church, we always got a new Easter Dress bc we were told to look our absolute best for Christ when we go to worship him. We also were taught to always give God our best so the new clothes went along with that.

    • Karen H

      Going to church and to my Mom & Dad's for lunch after.

    • Devinsiple

      We have a flashlight easter egg hunt the night before easter! The kids have soo much fun!

    • Briannaharris1227

      our easter eggs have change in them instead of candy!

    • Dylanharris1021

      easter dinner followed by our easter egg hunt

    • Carrie

      My favorite easter tradition is helping my mother cook for everyone in the family. It is great female bonding time.

    • Valeri

      Easters are always lovely at Mom & Dad's. All the family gathers for Sunday School and then off to Grandma's for the traditional “Easter Photo Shoot,” a delicious dinner and then the all important Easter Egg Hunt. I'm never too old for this!

    • Amy

      Easter egg hunt… but the adults have to find them!! FUN!

    • MTM

      Sunrise church service with entire family!

    • M C McBride

      Coloring Easter eggs is a must family project. Every year we all have to be the one who has an original Easter egg design (something we all secretly plan all year long). This tradition is also done at Christmas with cookies. But mostly it is great family time together.

    • Alice

      I love our egg hunt! And now I have a baby to hunt with!!!!

    • Carson

      Easter egg hunt then our easter dinner!!

    • jlr2338

      Sunrise Service, followed by breakfast then to Sunday School and Worship Service !

    • Tiffany

      spending time with family and friends

    • Jacquelyn

      My dad would always hide those individually wrapped candy eggs around the house and we would have our own little easter egg hunt. When we would get close to an egg he would say, “you're getting hot” and if we went the wrong way “you're getting cold now”. When we would get really close but still not see the egg he would say, “you're burning up, you're so hot you're on fire!” I can't wait for my dad to do this with my kids now that they are getting old enough (4 & 2).

    • Rebecca

      I have baskets fixed for my three children waiting on the kitchen table so when they get up, they have a surprise. We have a special breakfast, usually pancakes, then go to church. We used to go to my parents for lunch after church, but my dad passed away in July and my mom hasn't felt like having company or cooking so I'm guessing I'll be handling that this year. Would love to have the Hallmark basket of goodies to brighten up the day this year!

    • ann

      It's the one time of year when my husband actually allows our family of 5 to go to church in coordinating outfits!

    • Daijahs_mommy

      Our daughter is now 3 and most holidays revolve around here. :) I so enjoy making her Easter basket and decorating with her. I am truly looking forward to this Easter when we have our egg hunt and she gets her basket. While that stuff is fun, I also want her to understand the true meaning. :)

    • Erin

      I love that we get up and go to church; praising Christ for what He has done for us. Then we come home and have lunch with all our extended family. We play games and hide eggs. It's loads of fun!!

    • My favorite tradition would be just getting the family together to celebrate and watching the kid's easter egg hunt.

    • AmazingGraycie

      Simply getting together with family, letting the kids play and eating really good food. :)

    • Naz013

      We call Easter “Resurrection Day” – focus on the celebration of our Life in Christ!

    • Silkgardens30066

      I LOVE ANYTHING HALLMARK !!!

    • Heidimund

      My oldest child was born on Easter in 2003 so each Easter since then we watch videos of him as a baby and we sing “peter cotton tail” at the top of our lungs just like I do on the video from my c-section. Crazy I know, but it gives us a chance to talk about the rebirth that Easter symbolizes.

    • ShelleyNC

      At most holidays, my boys put on their aprons to help me make cookies and decorate them. These are some of my fondest memories! My boys would love these prizes!

    • Branes12

      Growing up we always did an Easter play for our parents!

    • Burroughs85

      We still love coloring Easter eggs…..I enjoy it just as much as my girls:)

    • Lisa

      I always leave eggs hidden in a scavenger hunt for my daughter. The first egg starts on her nightstand with a clue to the next egg, and so forth. Now that the Easter Bunny is out of the closet (my daughter is 13) she told me this week…”I still want those eggs. I don't care about the candy, but I want those eggs!”

    • Jesso22

      We get a new book in our baskets and after church and a big supper we all lay around reading,

    • Heather W.

      Our Easter tradition is going to church, then coming back to my home for an Easter celebration and Easter egg hunt for the kids.

    • Jessdine

      My favorite tradition at Easter is doing an egg hunt with my entire family. We won't be able to do it this year with such a late Easter but we will pick it up again next year. We all live far apart and got together this week. But I will do a hunt with all our friends.

    • Laceync2004

      I love getting together with all our family for one but we also have resurrection eggs that we do prior to easter and then Easter morning we eat a special breakfast of Overnight Baked French Toast.

    • landsnuh

      Our Easter tradition is going to the church where my Uncle is the pastor, listening to his service, then having lunch and an egg hunt with all our extended family. With all of us growing up and everyone living so far away, Easter is one of the few times we can count on seeing each other… giving even more meaning to such a precious day!

    • Vondaconnelly

      We all get dressed up and go to my parents church. All of my brothers and their children are there and we spend the rest of the day together.

    • Robndar

      First we attend church as a family, have a nice meal together afterwards, then do a small egg hunt. But, this year, we will be celebrating the grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary w/the entire family (all at home, b/c it is Sunday). It'll be a massive egg hunt this year w/32 grandchildren participating.

    • Maria T

      Sunrise Easter service.

    • MC

      My favorite Easter Tradition is after a nice ham dinner all the kids go looking for plastic eggs filled with coins throughout the house (never know if it's going to rain here in florida so we always plan it inside). There are always over 300 plastic eggs which we reuse every year. Everyone has exactly 10 minutes to find as many eggs as they can . They then empty their Loot into a coffee can for us to count. The person with the most money Gets the Biggest Basket and it goes down in size but every child gets a nicely filled Easter Basket done by moi! They also get to keep the “loot”. Our home is about 3000 sq ft and nothing is off limits (with the exception of the tops of shelves as it's where every child can reach). All the baskets have coloring books, crayons, a craft kit that's age appropriate, and the exact amount of candy.Only difference is the size of the stuffed animal. And the kids love this tradition. Even my older kids love it!: )

    • Taking kids to Grandma's after church for family lunch, followed by egg hunt. My 2 children with Grandma, Great Grandma, Great Grandpa, Great Aunt and 2 Great Uncles. The grown ups love it more than the kids. And you really should have the person who hid the eggs present.

    • Kucksusan0427

      We get up early and eat multi-colored scrambled eggs. After church we get together with extended family and have lunch and an Easter egg hunt. It is an entire day of family fun and love. We have great grandparents and great aunts and uncles around that love joining in on the fun.

    • Tammy M Connolly

      We like to make chocolate bunnies and suckers!

    • Candd_94

      Family together for Dinner and the Easter Egg Hunt.. The adults love it as much as the kids do…

    • Candd_94

      Of course the coloring of the eggs.

    • Save4four

      Going to church, family lunch and my Dad's them the Easter egg hunt.

    • Summermccowen

      Church, blessing of the easter baskets and of coursre the early morning easter egg hunt inside the house for both the baskets and the eggs!

    • Jeniffer7997

      My favorite past time tradition was having my entire family..adults and all get together and dye the eggs and going to chuch easter morning and then coming home to hunt the eggs and eating. There was always 1 missing egg that was found closer to summer when the grass would get mowed :)

    • Jlvallimont

      My favorite family Easter tradition is our “white shoe contest.” With all of the extended family gathered, Grandma checks everyone's shoes. The person with the whitest shoes gets an extra large chocolate bunny and the person with the dirtiest gets some shoe shine! Our family has repeat “offenders” that must have a dozen bottles of shoe shine sitting around! It's a fun way to tease each other and make sure that we look squeaky clean for church!

    • Dinner at my grandmothers! She turns 92 this year and is still cooking for us all and loves every minute of it! It is a wonderful time just to hang out and enjoy family!

    • Pamela_musone

      Baking Ressurection Cookies.

    • Brandimdenton

      We are just starting bc our children our still young…but I love the idea of the resurrection rolls. That is one that we will do for years to come…I love it!

    • Kandelbridges

      Love the Easter Egg hunts with the kids, and dying eggs :)

    • Amy

      Unfortunately we are military and no longer live near family, so we are creating new traditions with our children. I loved reading everyone elses traditions to get some new ideas. Growing up we would always hae Easter with my grandparents

    • Kkdalga

      One of the most treasured traditions we have as a family is celebrating the Ressurection of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is Risen as He said. Then we have dinner with some of our extended family.

    • Jen

      Egg Salad sandwiches. Sounds simple enough but as a kid I was always so excited to make it after our Easter egg hunt. I can't wait to start it with my son this year (Now that he can eat a sandwich).

    • Burnie675

      Coloring the eggs…..always trying new and different designs. Kids love being creative!

    • Peedeeindianlady

      My Favorite Easter Tradition is our Family Dinner and Egg Hunt. We all get together cook as much as we can the day before. The adults stuff the eggs with money and prizes. You should see the look on the boy's faces when they find rings or necklaces the girls don't seem to mind finding army men or animals in their eggs. It is so much enjoyment to see everyone together.

    • A_faith_stewart

      The big family get togethers at Easter at my grandparent's house. With 8 grandkids, we had the BEST egg hunts:)

    • Erin Chalfant

      We hunt Easter Eggs at night with flashlights! So much fun even for the big kids.

    • Kendrareisinger

      Building an Easter nest on Saturday. It is made from flowers, branches, etc. and Easter grass. This is where the Easter baskets are found on Easter morning.

    • Guest

      The Easter bunny always leaves a trail of jelly beans from the kids rooms. The kids think it's so neat that he comes into their rooms. We have a new dog this year…hope we can keep him from eating them before the kids see them ;)

    • Ash

      Easter egg hunts with my family using the homemade basket mother had made when I was born( still have it!!)

    • Rachel Raber

      sunrise service!!! ?

    • Liteofdawn

      sunrise service & pancake breakfast!!!!!

    • Erikajfoster

      As we got older, we started having egg hunts for our grandparents! Now that our son is almost 2, we are looking forward to watching him hunt for eggs this year.

    • Hwillsinsavannah

      Enjoying the fun that is involved but focusing on the reason for Easter!!

    • Cbrown9758

      Every Easter we have an Easter Egg hunt at my MIL's house. All the cousins work together to find the eggs. They have such a good time!

    • Sam

      the Easter bunny hides the basket

    • Jujudowns5

      Reading the Easter story of our risen Savior

    • Ashley Greene

      One of my favorite Easter traditions is something we have just started over the last few years since my nieces and nephew have gotten older. On the Saturday before Easter my niece and nephew come over and we dye 3 dozen eggs. Then on Sunday my grandparents, parents, sister and her kids all come over and we hunt the eggs in the back yard. It funny to watch the kids hunt eggs and my dogs try to take them from them. I look forward to this year my youngest niece (17 months) getting involved and hunting the eggs.

    • Pam

      Our favorite traditon starts off by attending sunrise service to celebrate the true meaning of Easter.Followed by a family dinner and then with the kids hunting easter eggs with prizes.Then just sitting around and enjoying special time with the family,which seems like there is never enought time to do anymore.Life seems to be so busy now adays,and we dont seem to stop and enjoy the special and most precious things in life as much as we would like.So spending time with the family means alot to me,and with the story books that are recordable,would add something very special to Easter,a memory that would last forever,for the grandbaby,when one day Im not around..Hope everyone has a very Blessed Eater,and remember to share some qualkity time with the ones you love..Happy Easter!!

    • Mkastor

      Just being together as a family–worshiping, eating, and always hunting for eggs!!!!

    • Smybailey

      My favorite Easter Tradition is watching the kids hunt Easter Eggs at the church Easter Egg hunt each year.

    • Jenasingleton

      Growing up, we went camping every Easter and were always so impressed that the Easter bunny knew where we were camping to leave us goodies! My mom was one impressive lady. :)

    • Darla

      We of course do the whole egg hunt thing but we also have a tradition of my Dad buying a bunny cake every year. He goes to a grocery store and gets the one shaped like a bunny, covered in coconut and it has jelly bean eyes and nose.

    • Agarrett1982

      Last year I started a tradition with my kids where we got a huge marshmellow and wrapped it in bread dough. We sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on top. The marshmellow was Jesus dying for our sins and being placed in the tomb. We cooked it. When it was done we cut into it and Jesus was gone from the tomb. Left for us was a sweet snack reminding us of the sweetness of the Holy Spirit that was given to us.

    • Dhvozza

      My favorite tradition is decorating easter eggs with my son and seeing what the Easter Bunny brought him on Easter morning.

    • Jenni

      My boys and I make Resurection cookies Sat. pm before Easter. While making the cookies we read the bible and taste the vinegar Jesus drank. We beat the ingredients with wooden spoons to show the pain Jesus felt. Once we are done we put them in the oven and tape the door shut. In the morning the first thing we do is run to the oven to see our cookies. We them give them out at the sunrise service at church.

    • Momof2boys

      Easter is one of my kids favorite holidays. We have the whole family over for a big lunch and then the adults hide the Easter eggs and all the kids run out of the house at one time to got hunt.

    • Paula

      We always pull out the Easter books for the month of April and I would love to send a book to my neice and nephew since we will not be able to get together this Easter…gas prices too high to drive 12 hours.

    • Jac1279

      Having the kids search for eggs, the most important…The Golden Egg with $1

    • Beth

      My family has an Easter egg war where everyone selects an egg. Then we bang the narrow ends of the eggs together until we have one uncracked egg, which is crowned the champion.

    • Melissa

      Spending time together by going to the beach

    • My favorite tradition is sharing the real meaning of Easter with our children.

    • Kmason1104

      a favorite easter tradition in our family is to get up on easter morning to find our gift baskets, go to sunrise service at church and then we all head to grandmommy's for a easter egg hunt and traditional Greek dinner. My husbands dad was stationed in Greece during the kids early years, so his family makes the easter dinner that they ate in Greece after going to service on hill across from the acropolis.

    • Lisa

      On Saturday before Easter our church does an egg hunt and games. Then on Sunday morning, go to church and the kids get to go to big “church” they love it. Then everyone goes to lunch.

    • AmyQ

      Well we are a new family, married for just over a year now with a little one! So we get to start fresh with traditions and continue some cherrished traditions as well. This year, we'll be setting out our LO's easter basket which will contain Hershey's kisses (for mommy and daddy, of course) and a disney movie. We'll also be hanging colorful eggs in the tree in the yard for LO. We'll also be reading the easter story on easter morning and going to Sunrise service at our church! It's going to be a great Easter!

    • Millehouse

      The Easter Bunny hides all of the baskets for the kids to find them and also hides all of the filled easter eggs. He also leaves behind baby powder footprints leading up to the house and on the front steps. The kids love it! We then have a big easter sunday breakfast and head over to our extended familys house for a get together as we dont get to see each other very often. It is a pleasant and wonderful reminder of the reason for family.

    • Chestnutter1212

      Growing up I always loved decorating Easter eggs the night before Easter for our big egg hunt after church on Sunday. As my husband and I are just starting our family, we are excited to show our children what Easter is all about.

    • Mail081101

      i love the hunt… so much fun to watch the babies search for their eggs

    • Lyndsey

      Our favorite Easter tradition is going to Sun Rise Service together.

    • Sarah

      My family loves dyeing eggs together, but my favorite tradition is waking up early on Easter morning and running downstairs to hunt for the Easter baskets (filled with candy and small gifts) that the Easter Bunny left for us. I am hiding my 2 year old's basket for the first time this year!

    • Kwilson1

      Raising baby ducks together and them setting them free in our family pond!

    • Mrsmonkey829

      My favorite Easter tradition was seeing what new stuffed Easter Bunny me and my sister would get. When I was eight I ended up with a white one before Easter Sunday, if you pressed its ear you would hear a song. My favorite Aunt unfortunately died while I was with her the day before that Easter. The stuffed rabbit is 20yrs old same batteries and everything and plays just like new. I like spending time with my sister now talking about all the stuffed bunnies we had, it brings us closer remembering those times.

    • Donna

      Our favorite tradition is having the whole family over for lunch and hiding Easter eggs for the children. Last year I bought water guns and had a blast (literally with the whole family). I bought another package for this year. Can't wait!

    • Lesliemichele80

      My favorite tradition is my entire family getting together at my moms. The women cook while the men assist the little ones with the never ending easter egg hunt. Once they find all the eggs they are hid again! The little ones sleep the whole way home!

    • Nichole Wealot

      It would have to be hiding easter eggs for all the kids to find

    • Shelley

      My favorite Easter tradition is spending the day with our family…..all aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, cousins (everyone) meets at my parents house for a wonderful Easter lunch/dinner. The kids have their egg hunt and the adults also have one. Great fun and memories.

    • Chaundra

      After the Sunday service, my family would attend the Easter program to listen to all of us children recite our Easter speeches that we had practiced memorizing for weeks. After the program we would get together with the extended family for a wonderful Easter meal. The day left everyone full literally and spiritually. Now that I have a family of my own the church I attend doesn't have an Easter program but I have my girls learn a “Easter speech” so they understand the true meaning of the day.

    • Hadleymeserve

      We will be hiding eggs with our little one for the first time this year! So excited to begin our family traditions!

    • Haleyallen80

      We love to dye eggs

    • danielle

      my family always get new easter dresses/outfits and attends sunrise service at out church to celebrate the “real reason” of easter. Then we eat a huge breakfeast at church and have our regular sunday morning service. Then we go my moms for an ester egg hunt and lunch.

    • Pam

      We always attend sunrise service, go to Sunday school, then come home and watch Passion. It reminds us of how much Jesus truly loves us!!!!

    • Haddis08

      My family always spends the day together. There is nothing better than family time.

    • Samebluebirds

      My favorite part of EAster is that we always go to Grandma's house. Of course the Easter bunny comes and there is a huge egg hunt followed by a beautiful church service and then yummy food at Grandma's house!

    • Sharon Stamey

      My favorite easter tradition is getting the whole family over for lunch and easter egg hunting. My grandkids and kids love real dyed easter eggs. It is so much fun watching the little ones hunt for eggs. After all that hunting everyone is ready for a delicious easter lunch.

    • Allison25md

      On Easter, we go to church, have a large feast with all the family, then have an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. They have the best time!

    • Danielle

      I favorite part of Easter was always doing to church and lunch at my grandmothers after. When we were young we would Easter egg hunt with all the cousins and as we all got older we would play volleyball or soccer after lunch. This will be the first year that we will all be going to my grandmother's as parents instead of children. I can't wait to see my children Easter egg hunt with all the cousins. I just wish my mom was still alive to see it. This year she would have 7 grandchildren. Happy Easter everyone!

    • tiffany

      my kids love that the easter bunny hides their easter basket and they have to find them easter morning.

    • Karie

      A big family get-together with a potluck and egg hunt for the kiddos. :)

    • LeL

      Visiting friends and egg hunts…

    • PrplBear96

      Easter is an intimate family gathering with a big feast, hidden Easter baskets around the house, and stories about how Christ died for us and rose again on Easter Sunday.

    • Ilathena

      I enjoyed this as a child, I love it even more when my daughter was able to take part in it to…..DYING EGGS>>>making them all different colors….i loove it when we can get creative.

    • Chelle2377

      Resurrection eggs

    • Melemeg

      Easter baskets are “in” in my house. As the kids got older, we replaced treats with clothes, sports items, etc., with just one treat that they love (for my husband it's jordan almonds, for example). My kids are 18 and 28, and they still get their baskets!!!

    • Tkehrley

      We started with hiding the easter basket with the kids last year!

    • Melissa

      Every Easter we take a trip to the lake. When I was a kid we would dye eggs the night before and the Easter Bunny would hide them for us to find when we woke up Easter morning. We have kept our Easter tradition for my son who loves getting to go to the lake for Easter.

    • Leslie7635

      We hide easter egss for the kids to find numerous times during the holiday season.

    • Flaminred28

      Every Easter we color eggs the day before with our children, (since we are so scattered since we have grown), then hide plastic eggs the day of Easter over and over and over again until we are all tired, but we always hide something special in one of the eggs each time to entice them to find the eggs. This also helps get them up and moving, event the older ones.

    • Mothersaver

      Growing up we always woke up to an easter egg hunt around our house. After sorting out our loot and going through our baskets we would always go to church. My father was in the Army, so we moved around a lot. Now that I have my own family, I've carried on the tradition of having my kids start their day with an easter egg hunt, baskets and church. Sometimes we visit a friends house where dyed eggs are filled with confetti and smashed over heads, or we'll go to my husband's aunt's house where all the kids run through a field littered with eggs. Whatever we do, we do it together. We are family and celebrate this day as such.

    • jennakaye34

      Every Easter we dye eggs as a family and have an Easter egg hunt that is always fun!

    • Stacey

      We have an Easter Egg Hunt at my mothers. Young and old hunt eggs.

    • Catherine Drago

      We always woke up with our easter baskets filled with toys and then tiny buckets of candy as my dad was a dentist :)

      My family Easter tradition is having my huge family all together at my Mom's for Easter dinner followed by the little ones having an Easter Egg Hunt with special prizes from Grandma.

    • Aaron Drago

      It is the only time of year we have ham – not sure it's my favorite tradition but it's a tradition :)

    • Jess

      Easter Egg hunt with math problems or riddles! When my kids began to add, we would put a math problem instead of their name on their eggs that adds up to their age. The math gets harder as they get older but always equals to their age! Now, we are doing riddles that have an answer that identify them (the first letter of your name is the same as the first letter of the capitol of Tennessee). This makes the hunt last longer and keeps the bigger kids from running over and dominating the little kids!

    • Kelley

      We have a family dinner that day.

    • Angela

      Sunrise Service, of course! Oh ya, and all the chocolate…

    • Amy

      Our tradition starts with an easter egg hunt for the kids, church, and then a big feast with family! Truly a fun day!

    • Jess Leigh Cook

      All of my family and my husbands family goes to early morning service. After church everyone comes to my house to eat and for an egg hunt! Just a family day! :)

    • Lambert1

      Our favorite Easter tradition is to attend sunrise service together, have brunch and attend church services where the kids have an easter egg hunt, everyone brings chocolate to share as the kids parade around with the baskets wearing the best dresses and bonnets. But this year with a new granddaughter, not sure what is going to happen! Might be a new trandition started!

    • Joella4031

      My favorite Easter tradition from when I was kid was when my father would hide our Easter baskets and it was a scavenger hunt to find them. He would cut out “Easter Bunny” paw prints and write clues, inspirational comments or Bible verses on each one. Each kid would have a different color of paw prints to follow around the house until we found our basket. It always felt like Christmas to me and my brothers because we would wake up early in order to follow our bunny path!

    • Kristel

      First thing in the morning, we will hide eggs all over the garden for the kids to find as soon as they wake up.

    • Kplavich

      Seeing the kids faces light up when they find easter eggs in the yard.

    • Laura

      Hiding Easter Eggs for my babies to find!

    • Kari

      We bake a cake the night of Good Friday and then decorate it to say
      “Happy Birthday Jesus” (including candles!) right after church on Easter morning.

    • Sheila

      Every Easter I get to together with my sister and her daughters and we have a big brunch, attend the neighborhood easter hunt and then have a easter egg hunt of our own. The 3 girls have so much fun and I have to say thanks to all you have done with this website I am able to fill the eggs with great gifts on a small budget.

      Thanks
      Sheila

    • Going to church to remember the real reason to celebrate!

    • Melinda Gordon

      I would love to win this for my baby girl to cherish the sweet voice of her loving great grandmother all of her life. For her to hear the love in her voice and her beautiful accent would mean the world to her and to me.
      God Bless you this Easter Season

    • Rlhunter

      When I was growing up we would spend the Saturday before Easter dying eggs and preparing the Easter meal. On Sunday morning we would wake before the sun to head out for sunrise service at church, come home, explore those Easter baskets and then head back out for Easter service. After church the entire family would get together for the big feast celebrating what Jesus did for us. I continue this today with my children in hopes of making memories and tradtions to pass down to their children one day.

    • Littleduck548

      Coloring easter eggs

    • fletchtr

      My favorite Easter tradition including egg hunts was eating the wonderful feast on Easter Sunday.

    • Chefcarla

      Since I am a nurse & my husband a fire fighter, it is impossible to have every Easter off together. We do whatever we can to make sure our girls know the true meaning of Easter by reading stories or going to Sunrise Service/church. We then gather with our families, sometimes late in the evening or even at the station to enjoy food & fellowship. The girls love to dye easter eggs & hunt for them as well!

    • Stephanie

      We dye eggs, hunt eggs, and wait for the Easter bunny!

    • Kaley Thomas

      We color hard boiled eggs as a family the Saturday before Easter! We always have an Easter egg hunt Easter morning. My family did it when I was a child and now I do it with my family.

    • Crbama7

      Reading the story Benjamins box

    • Beth A

      Coloring eggs and hunting for them together…I've got to share this. One year when I was a little girl, the weather was horrible on Easter and I decided to hide the eggs (real eggs) inside. I didn't realize until it was too late that my dog was following behind me eating them as I hid them. He didn't eat all of them, but it was a sad Easter egg hunt.

    • Amymills29

      Easter has been one of my mother's favorite holidays. She loves getting the family together and hiding eggs for her grandchildren. We also HAVE to dye at least 6 or 7 eggs each year, even though she usually just makes deviled eggs out of them. This will be my son's first Easter, and I cannot wait to share in our traditions with him!

    • Wdgarrison06

      We have pancakes cut out with different Easter cookie cutters every Easter morning!

    • Melissa S

      My favorite would be going to Easter church service all dressed up. We do this thing at church every year (since I was 5….26 years) Where the pastor says” He is risen” and we say “He is risen indeed” over and over louder each time, until you are shouting at the top of your lungs.

    • Kadyhouse

      The best was being outside with family. Whether is was Easter egg hunts or just hide-and-go-seek, it was always special when we were all together!

    • Kathleen

      Easter Baskets….still at 20 and 24 they look forward to them!

    • Rerdmann2

      I love my daughters expression when they find their Easter basket and see everything they got. Even when times are tough it is always nice to see a smile on a Childs face and know that things are going to just fine. That the Lord is in control.

    • Jen

      with 4 kids, the early morning Easter egg hunt all over the house is so much fun

    • danielle

      I love seeing my kids reaction when they wake and see their baskets. I get so excited for them that I always wake up before them and get the camcorder ready so I get their initial reaction.

    • Mjstaubitz

      We go to church than have Easter dinner with my family and have Easter egg hunts. I love that you done that with your grandmother. You gave me a great idea.

    • Melissa

      Growing up, my family would wake before the sun would rise. We would find an Easter outfit waiting for my brother and I that we would put on for church that day. We would then head to church where they had a Sunrise Service. I loved it because you could hear the birds sing and watch the sun rise as the Preacher told of the story of Jesus's resurrection! After the service, we would eat a breakfast with our church family and then head home where our extended family would gather together for a meal!

    • Hens_pups

      We check the hens to see if one laid a colored egg.

    • Abigail

      My absolute favorite family Easter tradition is going to the sunrise service at our church.

    • Drwendi1313

      Our favorite is the Easter egg hunt complete with the eater bunny making an appearance in the yard.

    • Lori

      We have a family picnic outside of my mother's southern home with wide porches and a beautiful garden setting. That is of course after Easter Sunrise Service, church breakfast, and 10:00 Easter Service. Busy day!

    • Stacy

      We go to the sunrise service at our chruch.

    • amanda

      We go to church and have big family dinner afterwards. It is nice to just be together as family.

    • Meghan

      Growing up I always loved getting a new easter dress and getting to wear it on Easter to church. Now I get to do that with my daughter. Of course I also think the easter egg hunts are the funnest part of the day. When I was a kid there were 9 cousins and we fought for those eggs, now I get to be the one hiding for the kids. I love Easter!

    • LisaC

      I know this will sound bizarre, but the Easter Bunny always brought us new undies each Easter!

    • Cearnest

      We have an egg hunt @ my mom's house every year.

    • Eltonfan

      My baby girl is going to be 14 months old on Easter. We will be starting brand new Easter traditions for our little family this year. I am so excited!

    • Melissar

      When I was young, we always went to the Sunrise Service at church which started at 7:00a.m. It always seemed really early, but I loved singing “Christ the Lord Has Risen Today” as the sun was coming up.

    • katie

      My favorite Easter tradition is going to the Passion Play here in Atlanta. It's such a wonderful reminder about Christ's awesome sacrifice for us!

    • Ashley

      My favorite tradition is making resurrection rolls!

    • Nana

      We do the typical Easter egg hunt, but I really regret that we haven't put more emphasis on the Christian meaning of Easter. Why on Earth did we allow all these nonsensical traditions to take over Christian holidays?

    • Emily

      Both sets of our extended families come to our house, we go to church together, and go out to lunch. It is nice to get everyone together and not have to feel pulled to go to only one family or travel the whole day going to both places.

    • Jennie

      We don't have any as our family is blended and my step-daughters aren't always with us for Easter, but my friend from high school wrote a book that I think we will start following and make a tradition. The book is Bigger than the Bunny. It's great!! (Book by Tasha Via)

    • Bookwormdiva

      We always go to Grandma's and Papa's for a huge family meal followed by an easter egg hunt. With 12 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews it is a crazy fun time for the kids and adults!

    • Christina

      I love telling the Easter story the weeks up until Easter to my kids.

    • momonhiyasmomma

      Love hidding those eggs!

    • Colorful eggs, and trying to remember how many you hid. Attempting to keep the lawn mower blades for one more year.

    • Drumsetfive

      First it is my and my husband job to hide the girls baskets in the house somewhere. When they first get up they have to search to find only thier own basket. If they find their sisters they have to leave it and keep looking. They love this. It is usually better than Christmas because they have to work for their prize. After that we start out the day with sunrise service at our church. The girls are all in their PJ's and everyone looks tired. Then we stay for breakfast with the congregation. After we fill our tummy's we go home get four girls in their new Easter or as we call it “Resurrection” Sunday dresses (which is no small task) and head back to church to celebrate. We go through the reason for the day and why we are so blessed and thankful.

    • Floridajewels1959

      When my girls were little – they loved to hunt for eggs at their Uncle Howards house – because he always had a $5 money egg and to a little girl that was a lot of money and special because it was Uncle Howards House

    • Cathy

      For the last 5 years, all grandparents come to my house for Easter dinner. After dinner the grandparents pick money eggs and hide them. Even my 17 year old will hunt Easter eggs….

    • Susan

      Attending church together and playing handbells at the Easter worship service.

    • Jody-jenn

      Go to Easter Service and also give Easter Baskets to our girls!

    • ckrcoupons

      I love having Easter dinner with my whole family at my parents' house. Good food with my favorite people! :) And the Easter bunny still hides a little gift for my sister and I to find…and we are in our 20's now! :)

    • Kihei9302

      Reflecting on what Easter really means.

    • Jfjuly24

      We're still working out our Easter traditions. But we're inviting a bunch of people to come for brunch after church, and we will have an egg hunt for the little ones. Should be fun!

    • Papes330

      Sunday morning worship with an egg hunt for the kids to follow

    • MC

      My favorite I think is the basket, not from a bunny, but from us as parents. We fill it with things to help our kids grow spiritually. Making them is about as fun as watching them open them after church Easter day.

    • ashley

      We read the Jesus Storybook Bible version of Jesus' sacrifice on our behalf and then the story of Him rising back to life!

    • Sandra

      Decoratoring eggs and going to sunrise service.

    • Skhenry29

      We have lots of traditions. my kids are grown now but I will continue them with my grandkids and adopted daughter. We have indoor and outdoor egg hunts with a special egg for a big prize. we invite oour family and friends to participate. We also color eggs, write the receiptients name on them and give them away. We also have the exact menu every year. We also hide the same easter baskets on Easter morning which have a special gift in them. But mosy importantly, we talk about Jesus – his death and resurrection! Little children can understand that the candy and bunnt aspects are just fun and make believe but Easter is Jesus!

    • Julie

      I love the family lunch feast followed by multiple egg hunts!

      Dying Easter eggs and spending time with family and friends.

    • Amber

      The Sat. before Easter we spend with my husbands family, eating, hunting for eggs and enjoying each other's company. On Sunday we go to church and then spend the day with my family once again eatig, hunting for eggs and enjoying each other's company. Of course there is also time set aside for reading book about Easter with the kids.

    • Mooredoghouse

      Dying easter eggs with the family & going to a service at my in-laws church. It's fun to see all of neices dressed in their Easter outfits!

    • Peggy

      s to have a big Easter with family

    • Stacy

      I love being with me family!

    • My family tradition is to hide Easter eggs around the house and let my kids find them. They love hunting for Easter eggs and we love watching them do it. The first few times are always fun as the kids are trying to figure out what exactly to do with them.

    • Thegoodkim

      Instead of hiding eggs my father would hide candy all over the livingroom. It was so much fun and now I also do that for my daughters. There is nothing like the first time you try to put cady on a ceiling fan.

    • Jean Felder

      Not only does the Easter Bunny hide the basket in the yard, but inside every basket is hidden a cross to remind the kids of the true purpose of Easter and the ultimate sacrifice that was made so that we may live.

    • Jenny

      We always start the day off with sunrise service.. .reminded that “Up from the grave He arose”. Later that day we have our family over for lunch and afterwards we hide Easter eggs for the kids and then they hide them for us. :) Times to treasure.

    • Kspbears

      We always go to the Sunrise Service. After lunch we have an Easter Egg Hunt.

    • Val

      hiding the eggs filled with candy in the house, going to church and then having easter dinner

    • Jhartsell

      We go to the front of our church and take a picture of the children in front of a vine cross that is covered in flowers. Church members bring flowers all morning to fill the cross. The we have many Easter egg hunts after lunch.

    • Asheffield1

      My favorite tradition was going to my Grandparents for Easter as a child. Now that they are gone and we live away from family my favorite tradition is a day as a family and like Thanksgiving a great dinner as we talk about the year so far and all that we are thankful for.

    • Rldotter

      My family first and foremost goes to chuch on Easter Sunday to celebrate Jesus' ressurection! Then we go to my mother's house for dinner and play with my boys' treats that she gives them. It's a wonderful day.

    • CTaylor

      We go to my great Aunt's house after Church for lunch :)

      Sunrise service watching the sun come up in the eastern sky………then to grandmas, then to church, then to grandma's for a nice meal and the family tradition of hiding and hunting Easter eggs.

    • Diane Daniel

      Waking up to see what wonderful surprises the Easter Bunny has brought, followed by a moving church service, then wonderful memories made by having lunch with loved ones and friends.

    • Vepymr

      our favorite easter tradition is decorating blown eggs. It's my way of having a memento from every year. It's awesome to see how they change over the years…kind of like collecting Christmas ornaments. It's a fun craft to do with everyone and so individual!

    • Rachel H.

      My favorite Easter tradition is making the rounds to my grandparents homes all dressed up in our Easter clothes before going to church! Pictures had to be taken before we could get our clothes dirty! After church, family and friends would gather at my grandparents house for lunch and an Easter egg hunt!

    • Capres813

      Hiding eggs to be found. My almost 16 year old just asked today if her friend could spend the night so she could find eggs too because her family doesn't have any special Easter traditions.

    • Carolinablueyes84

      The Easter egg hunt at church!

    • Mistyk

      My favorite Easter tradition is starting the morning getting dressed for church, then we go out into the backyard where the Easter bunny has hidden Easter eggs. We look for Easter eggs all the way to the front yard and up the steps to the front door where the Easter bunny has left baskets for everyone.

    • Hnm21

      My cousin and I would always hide the Marshmellow eggs for each other to find! Every year we would lose at least one!

    • Alison

      my favorite memory is the Sunrise service at church. We got up early and had breakfast at church, then the service. Afterwords it was a traditional meal followed by egg hunting!!

    • Rhiannon353

      The egg hunt is probably my favorite tradition, along with a big dinner and yummy pies.

    • Susan

      We always make “empty tombs”…cinnamon-covered biscuits with marshmallows inside. When you bake them the marshmallow disappears leaving an “empty tomb”! So yummy!

    • Danyeln

      The best Easter tradition is the sunrise service at our church. it is truly at sunrise and nobody is dressed up some folks have barely brushed thier hair but half the church is there to watch the dawning of a new day and worship together. Then there is the mad rush to grab breakfast, get home and dressed and back to church in time for Sunday school.

    • Brandy

      After church on Easter, I love that the whole family gathers at someone's house to just spend time together, eat, and let the kids hunt eggs

    • Kevinstacy

      Hunting eggs is always a favorite. First, the adults hide for the kids and then the kids hide for the adults. Gotta love it!

    • Destiny

      The whole family meets for old fashion fun @ my Uncle's farm. We hunt eggs, have potato sack races, egg toss games & of course eat lots of good food !

    • rkmommy

      We go to Sunday services at Church, then head to my parents' house for a huge lunch & egg hunt for all the kiddos. It's always a special day!

    • Peepsqueek78

      Our favorite Easter tradition use to be taking our kids to the local BIG Easter Egg Hunt and have a picnic. Now that our kids are grown and have kids of their own we go watch our Grand babies hunt eggs at their various events. We enjoy giving them each a bucket and shovel filled with a little candy and some cute treats. They enjoy them so much & we enjoy THEM so much.

    • Skmom777

      Every year growing up it was church, easter egg hunt at home, and then baskets from the “easter bunny” We still do it every year with our own children. And always the big fancy easter dress! That is my daughters favorite part!

    • Betty

      I would love a recordable storybook to connect with my granddaughters in NJ

    • Finch_it

      My kids are grown & gone but the Easter Bunny still comes to our house! Hummm

    • Rebecca Davis

      I always decorate big baskets for the kids with everything good imaginable. Now that my daughter is pregnant I am looking forward to making easter memorable for Abigail Rose.

    • sara

      Since I was small, the saturday night before Easter my whole family has gotten together to dye dozens of Easter eggs. Now that we are all grown we still do it, but we bring our kids now. So between my siblings we have 7 kids all dying eggs together and they love it! So much fun.

    • Capecoralodea2

      we dye easter egg I have 3 kids from 20 to 10 and its always a family tradition

    • My mother-in-law always hides an Easter egg in our slipper for us to find Easter morning.

    • Gwen

      We have our Easter baskets and bunny stuff on Saturday morning so Sunday can be all about Jesus.

    • Lrae17

      Wow. I only wish we had some good Easter traditions. I didn't grow up in a church so ours was sadly only focused around our family egg hunt and Easter baskets.

    • KateD104

      We love dying our Easter eggs, searching for baskets, and opening our last Resurrection egg!

    • Debhof821

      We have many traditions but the one I like the most since my four year old can participate is egg decorating…it is fun to see her be so creative!

    • Donna

      My daughter and I still dye and decorate eggs the night before Easter, even though she is now 17yrs old. This is a tradition that we love as we cook and prepare the Easter meal for the next day.

    • Mford6850

      our family tradition is to color eggs on saturday night before easter morning, then we hide them for the little ones to find either outside(weather permitting) or inside. everyone enjoys this since it seems to be the request we get every year!

    • Lori Williams

      My favorite family tradition is to celebrate Resurrection Sunday by going to church and worshiping our risen Savior with our church family. It is the most wonderful time of remembering just what Jesus did for us. I believe this is most glorifying to our Heavenly Father, and that is our families main focus, to glorify God. Thanks!

    • Hkitty_65

      Though my children are getting older, we still have the Easter Bunny and he hides each of them 5 plastic eggs (5 each/blue and green) in the house for Easter morning. We also prefer going to the earlier Easter church service to allow visitors and guests more space for the 11:00 service.

    • Sillysnicks

      My favorite Easter tradition is when my parents hide eggs/chocolate at their house for my sister, my husband, and me. We are all in our 30s so it is hilarious to see us run through the house in our Easter Sunday best racing for the eggs and candy!

    • Terri

      My favorite Easter tradition is getting together with all of my husband's side of the family for a yummy Easter lunch. We eat lots and then have a big egg hunt with all of the children. After that, we take a family portrait. It is so fun to compare and see how everyone has changed over the years.

    • brandi

      I love helping my baby girl hunt for Easter eggs. This will be the first year that she can really get into it! I'm excited:)

      The Easter Bunny leaves giant bunny foot prints… sometimes in funny places! It's always fun to look around and try to figure out what kind of mischief he was up to…

    • Tbears13t

      i love getting together on easter with my family. eating a home cooked meal then dye eggs after we eat. when they get done then we go and hide them so all the little ones can find the eggs as well as the prize egg.

      Since my husband and I don't live around our families we always cook a small dinner and have friends over. Since we have had our daughter we hide and hunt easter eggs. It's such a joy to see the excitement on her face!

    • Jackiemarie7

      My favorite Easter tradition as a child was always waking up on Easter and going to my grandparents house. The Easter bunny always visited me there as well. I can't wait to start this tradition with my child this year.

    • felecia Walter

      we get togehter and have an easter egg hunt after church

      We don't have any Easter traditions, but this year I have a new one. Last year on Good Friday, I was in the hospital recovering from surgery after being diagnosed with cancer. This year I am going to the beach to celebrate the life that God has given me and the sacrifice of His life for me. Then I will be attending church to celebrate His resurrection.

      Coloring Easter Eggs. My children can be so creative. Also, the Easter Bunny always leaves footprints through the house leading my children to their Easter baskets.

    • aricks

      I love going to church on Sunday morning and then eating lunch and hiding eggs with my family that afternoon.

    • Amy

      we go to church and then we have a dinner with my folks. I love easter the whole reason we celebrate not the bunny and eggs, but Jesus Christ my savior who died for all.

    • Robin

      We love to go to church on Sunday morning and then hunt easter eggs. We also wake up on Easter morning to a basket full of goodies!

    • Awcw2boys

      We always have an egg hunt and BBQ with our church family the day before Easter. Lots of fun for the whole family!

    • we always have a scavenger hunt Easter morning to find our baskets!

    • Shannon

      Hunting eggs with all the kids at grannys lunch on easter and all the good food is my favorite tradition. Next year I will have my own for Easter. Only a 6 month old but still look forward to the fun traditions with my own little one, starting with Easter morning all dressed up at church!

    • amy

      We attend church Easter morning, open our resurrection eggs and have a get together with several families from our church. Awesome day of celebration….He is Risen!

    • Thehornes99

      My girls and I make a lamb cake the night before and Easter morning after church we enjoy lunch and the cake after Easter Egg hunt.

    • Alicia

      We all go downstairs together and the kids find their easter baskets. We have a big southern breakfast. After church we always have an easter egg hunt in the front yard!

    • Pelicanrooster87

      Every Ash Wednesday, mi children and I get out our Easter books and place them in a basket by their bed. Every night we read 1 or 2 books. They love doing this! We only read Easter books during lent before bed, but we read other books during the day.
      We go to an Easter egg hunt on the Saturday before Easter and on Sunday we go to Easter Service and then we have lunch at the in-laws.

    • Wanda

      Saturday was a huge day just getting ready for this incredible celebration. My sister & I always got a frilly new dress, fancy socks, shoes, gloves, purse, hat/hairbow. My brothers got a new suit, shoes, shirt & tie. Mom would curl my hair and my sister's. Easter Sunday we got up early to find our easter baskets that Mom and Dad partially filled with special candies and then we would go outside all dressed for Sunday School for an Easter egg hunt so that Dad could film us in our pretty outfits. Then we were off to Sunday School to learn about the the resurrection of Jesus. My husband and I carried on the same tradition with our kids who are adults now. I believe and hope that they will continue this legacy.

    • Raptoud

      These are awesome gifts. Thank you so much for doing the giveaways.

    • Monica Askew

      We have (several) Easter egg hunts. My little girl still loves doing it (she's 8) . We hide and then re-hide (at least 3-4) times the same eggs –but different locations. It's so much fun watching her smile each time she discovers a hidden egg. :)

    • Lindalou

      We always have a Easter Egg Hunt for the kids at my Mom's house…..now that she has passed away we will still have the egg hunt at her house….

    • Raptoud

      Our easter tradition include helping the kids dye eggs, tell the story of Easter & why God gave his son for us, setting the easter baskets out with some carrot treats for the easter bunny & then having all the family together on Easter sunday for a grand dinner.

    • Lindzlou797

      This is our first Easter with our child that is 3 months old. We are starting our traditions now for our children as they grow. We will hide easter baskets to find, decorate eggs, have a big family breakfast together and then call grandparents to wish them a Happy Easter!

    • Momosewell

      We attend church and then come home for dinner with our children and grandchildren and then an easter egg hunt out doors!!

    • Racheal Young

      I love that my family and I gather for dinner and then do our easter egg hunt immediately after.

    • Hannah_Swindle

      Growing up we didn't have alot of money, but each year my mother would save up and get us all Easter dresses. In a family of 5 with one income, new clothes were a real treat! Now that I have a 10 month old, my mom continued the tradition and got my daughter a beautiful easter dress.

    • Gayle

      My mother always made Easter dresses for me and my three sisters when we were growing up. She continued by making dresses for the six granddaughters. Since she now has Alzheimer's, I have continued the tradition by making Easter dresses for my granddaughters. They always love getting a dress that Gigi has made!

    • Lori Powell

      I have so many Easter memories that it's hard to pick a favorite, but I'll try to stick to one. I have always had a very close-knit family and we are all very lucky to live close to one another. Every Easter, after we all stuffed our faces with the best of my Grandmother's cooking, my brothers and cousins and I would wait diligently as “the adults” prepared prize Easter eggs and hid them all around my grandparents' yard. At the word “go” we would run joyously around, checking every nook and cranny for those wonderful colored eggs. I looked forward to doing that every year….and still do! The thought of planning an Easter egg hunt just turns me right back into a little kid again!

    • Lunch at Grandma's with the best pecan pie!

    • Amy

      Growing up my Dad always made Easter special for the girls by getting my mom and my sisters and I a flower coursage. I used to love to look forward to that day because I knew how special it made me feel. We'd go to church showing them off every year.

    • Kristin

      A favorite Easter tradition… well, I have lots of great memories of each Easter, it's hard to pick one. But if only one- well, it would be last year when my oldest sister came and visited my family and we got up early, got all dressed up for church and took our traditional Easter picture.

    • Katie

      Easter egg hunts in the backyard as a kid. I really miss those days!

    • Dmh3rd

      Growing up, we always went to Sunrise Service and then a huge egg hunt at my grandparents with all the cousins. I remember trying to race my cousins for the prize egg. It was always interesting because I had cousins of all ages. We have tried to continue the tradition with our son, we now go to my parents and he gets to hunt the eggs with his cousin. The sad part is I had over 50 cousins and he is limited to three.

    • Jamie

      Sunrise service and big Easter dinner to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior.

    • Edavenport

      We make a weekend of Easter celebration by going to our church as a family and stuffing(friday night) , (on saturday) hiding and then helping the little kids hunt and fill their baskets. Then going home and coloring Eggs for half the night for our family dinner and egg hunt on Sunday after services.

    • Nfflowergirl

      I always remember waking up to a beautiful Easter basket … it was like the room was sparkling :)

    • JoNell

      Our tradition is dying easter eggs and hiding them in the back yard…:)

    • Tcmaness1

      MY FAMILY HASNT DONE AN EASTER TRADITION SINCE MY GRANDMA GOT SICK BUT I HAVE A 7MONTH OLD AND I CANNOT WAIT TO BEGIN EASTER TRADITIONS WITH HER <3

    • Pam

      My son is 25 years old and I still fix him an Easter basket! Just bigger prizes! Church and Easter baskets, that's our tradition.

    • Fabfinds

      Our family tradition is getting up a little earlier on Sunday morning to see what the Easter bunny has left. Then we get ready for church. After church we gather for lunch at my great grandmother's home, all the women of the family bring in several dishes. After lunch, we all sit around talking and enjoy the afternoon watching the small kids hide/hunt Easter eggs and “the big kids” play football.

      This year before we head to church I hope to add a new tradition. I want to give both of my children a blessing. You read of this in the Bible, but don't hear much of it today. I'd like for them to know and hear out loud our praying for God's blessings to be upon them for their health, strength, wisdom, character and so much more. I think Easter, and the rebirth of all God's creation in the spring will be a great time to add this to our family traditions.

    • Joshbrenda

      We have a wonderful big Easter lunch after church at my mamaws house and then my sister and I hide eggs for our 4 children and we then let them have all the fun!

    • sb1

      We have a wonderful Easter dinner with my young son

    • Jvmeeks

      This year we are starting a new tradition I am very excited about. We will be learning the story of Easter with the help of resurrection eggs. I think my 3 girls will love it, and learn the special story of what Jesus did for us in such a memorable way.

    • Amber R

      Easter Dinner!! We all get together after church, have a great big dinner and hunt eggs for the kids. It's a common tradition, but one that we all love.

    • Kliver5150

      We do an Easter egg hunt in our backyard and my little boy has to hunt for his easter basket in the morning.

    • Kidsramazing

      We drive 4 hours to my mom's home place where our entire family gathers.. We color dozens of eggs for the Egg Hunt after church and then we spend the afternoon having a huge meal and hiding the eggs for all of the kids. It is tons of fun!!!

    • Sdhirtz

      My mom made it special. We would get easter dresses, baskets from the easter bunny and go to church. It was simple and sweet. We tried to focus the day on jesus and the life he gave us and family.

    • Our favorite Easter events is attending church and celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus!

    • Ann

      easter egg hunts !

    • Trish31

      Love making cupcake easter baskets as a child. Now I do it with my own kids!

    • Amyhockinson

      Our tradition included an easter egg hunt in our house with real eggs that we painted with mom. Then we would dig into our huge easter baskets full of goodies! Growing up my mom would make a huge deal out of Easter and it was always one of my favorite holidays. She passed away several years ago and I recently had a baby. I can't wait until he is old enough to continue my mom's Easter traditions!

    • u

      great for my kid! thanks

    • u

      east egg hunting is always a great adventure for me! :)

    • Mnksease

      my sister's and mother all get together with our children and die eggs together.

    • sje1

      We've held a hunt in our backyard with extended family. This year the tradition will be broken. New one starting. Trip to DC!!!

    • Jami

      the children in our family love to find the golden egg at easter! Whoever finds it wins the prize!

    • Sweetrepeats

      I always take family pictures of Easter. Of course the kids hate staying dressed up to take pictures, but they have grown quite accustomed to it!

    • cory4

      We hide our easter baskets every year

    • RB

      We invite the neighborhood kids for the annual Easter egg hunt.

    • mwilkie

      Growing up we didnt have many traditions but since I now have my own family each Easter we participate in our church Easter egg hunt and have a wonderful meal with our family teaching my children what Easter means

    • mommyof2

      Every Easter the “Easter Bunny” hides easter eggs outside for the two kids to fill there easter baskets with – A good ol fashion Easter Egg Hunt. Then a family meal together.

    • We started making colored Easter eggs when I was a kid, but it is only recently that we have taken on a new tradition: Easter egg battles. I read about how the Eastern Orthodox only color their eggs red and then go around tapping each other's eggs to see which one will survive to the next round. This was a perfect addition for a family of little boys!

    • khinson

      Our family tradition is the Easter Bunny leaves our children (Sarah and C.J.) their Easter Basket outside the door every Easter Morning. This may sound boring but the catch is, it is kind of tricky for the Easter Bunny to leave the basket because every Easter we take a family trip somewhere on Easter. So the kids really love to see if the Easter Bunny can find them no matter where they are on Easter morning. The best one yet is the Easter Bunny visiting them on our camping trip in the Great Smokey Mt's. What FUN!!! The Easter baskets where left outside our camper door.

    • Vicki

      Easter egg hunts and of course, an Easter basket!

    • elaine74

      Making our own Easter candy and egg dying

    • Scrapgirl6

      My favorite Easter tradition is definitely coloring Easter eggs. We do so many and just love it. We enjoy it so much that we have even done it other times of the year besides easter. The bright and beautiful colors of the eggs always make me smile.

    • Bevo318

      coloring eggs

    • Dpotts_2009

      Talking with my family we don't get together as much as we use to so I really enjoy seeing them.

    • Mmorning3

      A favorite Easter tradition for my family is going out and getting a larg branch to resemble a small tree. We put the branch into a “tee” and decorate it with easter-eggs. It's are Easter-Egg tree!

    • Heidi

      So many Easter memories! Growing up, was always the dress. My mom always made me a new dress for easter, I still have them all packed away. Never a frilly girlie, girl, this was the one day should could get me in lace and me be happy about it LOL These days with my own family, and two boys of my own (no little girl to put in frilly dresses :-( ) We love to decorate eggs together. My best friend and I always get together and fill eggs and baskets the night before, that's always a special time for both of us. Then we let the guys watch the kids (SHE has the girlie girl LOL) while we hide eggs and cook dinner. We have the best times together with friends, watching the kids hunt eggs, cooking dinner together, spending time together that we don't get to normally since we both work full time. I treasure any time spent with friends and family. And of course, reminding all the kids what Easter is really about, minus the Easter bunny excitement :-) Hope everyone else has a wonderful time with their friends and family this year! Cherish all the memories, Old and New ones made!!!!!

    • LeighP

      We're really just starting out with Easter traditions as our son is young and we waited 15 yrs for him! When I was young my grandmother used to buy all her grandchildren (all girls) new dresses and shoes and we used to have a big family lunch.

    • Family pictures – I love that we have a huge collection of pictures in our Spring best!

    • Rosen220

      Our favorite Easter tradition is going to the senior center for an egg hunt decked out in our best clothes then having lunch with the seniors.

    • Charbiggs

      1st we di ressurection eggs with story. Next we color hard boiled eggs. Easter service Sunday Morning. 'Then we have all sides of families get together for a large brunch and children all show there talents in music. Lots of singing and playing followed by the HUNT.

    • Christy_hall55

      This tradition I started with my children and now my grandchildren. I hide their easter gift bags. It actually takes the adults longer to find their gifts and the children.

    • Taylor

      Every Easter we get up early to see what the Easter bunny has brought us! Then after opening gifts all of the family gets together at my moms and we have a huge Easter egg hunt for the kids! We hide 100+ eggs so everyone has a chance to find some!
      Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Poohlar

      we get up and check out what the easter bunny left us, have an easter egg hunt and visit with friends and family!

    • Danielle

      We color the eggs the night before and that night we leave milk and carrots for the “Easter Bunny” so he will then hide the eggs and leave Easter baskets for the kids in the morning. Easter morning we h
