One of the most important events in Christianity is the death and later the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Good Friday occurs on the Friday before Easter. The day commemorates the Crucifixion of Jesus. Some people believe it to be a day of sorrow and mourning. Others believe it to be a day of celebration of what’s to come. For me it’s a day of family time and thankfulness and a celebration of what’s to come; the resurrection. Last year and this year we decided to do something different. The older generation in our family usually plan out a morning of church, then a gathering a someone’s house for Easter lunch and dinner, spending time with family and friends, and having an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Now my generation decided to have something at the lake, simple foods, filled with laughter and good times with the family, and of course we will not forget the Easter egg hunt.
What does Good Friday and Easter mean to you? How do you and your family Easter?
