I blog to wish you a special Good Friday and a Happy Easter. One statistical study claims that over 80% in the United States celebrated Easter in 2016, and a similar number are expected to do so this year.
In the U.S., we view Easter differently than some other countries. Here, we attend church and have Easter egg hunts and chew on chocolate rabbits.
In Germany, they view the day solemnly, with strict laws governing such things as no horse racing or dancing. I am not sure whether they have outlawed marshmallow Peeps.
I like the positive thought of Psalm 118:24, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it“.
I hope you have a meaningful and wonderful weekend!
This is a time of family, thankfulness and appreciation; and even baskets, chocolates and friendly rabbits.
If you like marshmallow peeps… it’s a good time too. Plus, it includes Friday.
We just emailed our e-Blast for April. You can get it here if we did not send it to you. The staff put some good stuff in this April edition.
There is no shortage of funny Easter and rabbit pictures on the Internet. It just seems like it was only a couple months ago that we were posting these to the blog. Has it really been a year? Still, they make me smile every time.
I hope this is a wonderful time for you and your family. Have a great weekend and make sure to find all the hidden eggs… especially the ones that have money in them. Also, I personally hope to see the Cadbury Bunny working this year.
