I happen to be one of those people who makes a New Year’s resolution each year. To be truthful, there’s usually a whole list of things that I’d like to accomplish during the year: lose 10 pounds, exercise more, master Spanish, visit my folks more often, and learn how to cook tasty low-fat meals. But I might as well just have this same list on my computer and print it out every year, since the same five resolutions always seem to make their way on there. I always have incredibly high hopes for myself.
Easter was always one of my favorite holidays. Not because of the fancy dresses or hats (gah, I hated those! One year I was even forced to wear gloves!), not because of the family gathering together for ham and potato brunch after services, not for the cute bunnies and chickies (although my mother will tell you all about the year she got live dyed Easter chicks in her basket), not even for the week we got off from school. No, Easter was always special because of one thing, and one thing only: the Easter egg hunt!
