Easter Traditions

Like any holiday, each of us celebrates Easter differently.

I remember that as a little girl, my mother would bring me shopping for a new Easter dress. Every year I would pick a different colour. Then I would eagerly await Easter morning so that I could wear it. Sadly, many Easter Sundays in my part of the world were too cold to wear the new spring dress.

When I was thirteen, my godmother gave me a lovely gold cross on a gold chain. I was excited as it was my first piece of “grown-up” jewelry. That cross is no longer the first piece of jewelry I reach for, but I do take it out on Easter Sunday and wear it in remembrance of her.

Do you have any special traditions for Easter?

It's kind of sad that people don't really dress up for special occasions like they once did. I can remember wearing my new Easter dress to church and seeing all of the pretty pastel dresses and hats. Very few people wear hats anymore, but I used to love to see how outlandish some of them were.

Beautiful jewelry selections celebrating Easter.

Yes, we used to dress up aswell and after breakfast we went into the garden looking for chocolate Easter eggs. Very nice article and examples, thank you.

DH and I were discussing this on Easter Sunday, remembering the easter suits and hats and patten leather shoes and gloves.....
