|Dianne Cage: Easter goodies, traditions|
Palm Sunday — a time to reflect and a time to fall on your knees. What a beautiful time of the year! The trees budding out, spring flowers, new beginnings! At our church, St. Paul's Methodist, on Palm Sunday all the little children come down the center aisle waving beautiful fresh palm branches. I just love it, makes me smile, they are so cute. Good Friday and EASTER, the most important holiday for Christians!
I always dye lots of eggs and all the grandchildren are invited. We usually end up with four or five and maybe a friend or two, it is really fun!
For as long as I can remember, I have been dying Easter eggs, it is a family tradition. My grandmother, Lela King Breard (one of the most important women in my life), always had an Easter Egg Dyeing Party for her grandchildren. As Lela did not like to waste anything and it was hard using all the dye, she would keep boiling eggs, so we got to dye lots and lots of eggs.
