Wishing all a happy Easter and Passover today.
Can you guess which one is me? I'm the little one of the far left with the Easter basket in my hand. I can only guess that since I'm the only one with a basket in the photo, that I probably wasn't going to be too happy without it. My older sister is on the right in a matching dress and the other girls were our neighbors.
Each Easter, we got a new Easter dress (matching for my sisters), shoes and hat. Oh, those were the days. A surprise basket with chocolates from See's Candies and colorful jelly beans and tiny foil wrapped chocolate eggs, dressing up for church, and a ham dinner in the evening. You can probably guess which part I liked best - yes, getting up in the morning to find the basket that the Easter bunny brought filled with goodies.
I have to admit that I do pine for the old days. Things were just so much simpler then and holidays were more special. Luckily, my dad was a hobbyist photographer and I have wonderful old photos to remember those times. It's just not the same eating vegetarian tacos on Easter!
