Looking for my Easter basket that the bunny hid somewhere in the house every Easter morning. One time he tied it up inside the exhaust fan area of the stove! Mean bunny.
Easter Vacation (which is what it was called back then) starting at noon on Holy Thursday and going the week AFTER Easter, unlike the public school kids that got the week before off.
Going to church on Good Friday. It was always kinda cool 'cause it wasn't a mass and it was at 2:00 in the afternoon, but that whole veneration of the cross business, always weirded me out. Kissing a cross' feet
The smell of vinegar wafting through the air when you were making the dyes for coloring eggs with the PAAS stuff. One year we got a contraption called a Decor-egger that you put an egg into and could draw all over it with colored pens. I loved that thing.
Those rub on decals you got in the PAAS kit. It was way more fun rubbing those on compared to just sticking a sticker on the egg. And those egg holder things you could make that never quite held an egg because they were too small.
Smelling the eggs the day after you colored them. They smelled like a combo of vinegar and sulpher. Come on you know you did that.
The year I got sick on Easter dinner. Ham and this potato/corn flake/sour cream and cheese casserole dish my sister in law made. I still cant eat that potato dish without getting a nauseous feeling in my gut.
Easter egg hunts for the kids. I really didn't get any hunts after my nieces were born, but it was still fun being 11 or so and hiding the eggs for them. Luckily my sister now puts on adult egg hunts for us at her house, with adult goodies like certificates for likker inside. I my sister.
And your kid memories of Easter??
