The sun’s rays filtered dimly through the dingy schoolroom window. Kantor Bach sighed. There was nothing good about this Friday. He could barely see the notes on his scores, but to light a candle at seven a.m., no matter how grey and overcast the morning, would only invite the disapprobation of the town council.

Sally Solari worked at her family’s Italian family-style restaurant until she inherited her aunt’s fine dining restaurant, Gauguin. Too bad her dad doesn’t understand the concept of having her own place now.

Of all the mornings to oversleep, why did it have to be this morning? Lorraine asked her reflection in the mirror as she smeared a generous dollop of moisturizing cream over her crepey skin. The sunrise Easter service started in less than half an hour.

I hope you enjoy their memories and they remind you of some of your own which you are encouraged to share in the comments below! Happy Easter!

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Not only is it a fun day with the family, usually accompanied by a great meal, it also signals that winter is definitely done and spring is upon us.

Archibald Brown, a chimney sweep, had retired in the very last house on Windermere Lane deep in the heart of the Devonshire countryside in England. Living alone in the village of Lustingleigh, he rarely, if ever, had the opportunity to welcome a visitor and share any of his many memories, what his dearly departed wife called, “Tall tales,” like the time he had a brush with a golden opportunity.

The absolute best part about living in New York is that the world comes to you. You don’t have to travel across any oceans to experience holiday food traditions of other countries. With a holiday like Easter, there are hundreds of church services in whichever tradition you choose to attend, and foods from all cultures are available here. I was at Amy’s Cafe inside the New York Public Library and they had Hot Cross Buns for sale.

Spring has sprung, and Easter is just around the corner. My family, along with many others, will be gathering after church to celebrate this first holiday in spring. And those gatherings are sure to include food. For my family, Easter is usually a potluck buffet on the patio. My brother furnishes the ham and the rest of us bring the baked beans, deviled eggs, Jell-O salad and desserts. Yes, I did say Jell-O salad. It’s a tradition.

“Run, Violet, run!”
“I’m going as fast as my four feet can carry me, Peter.”
“Don’t look up.” Peter’s heart pounded. Harris hawks. They hunted in packs.

Lizzie climbed out of her van and called to Claire. “I’ve got a load of special Easter eggs.” Daylight was fading in the park. Clumps of vivid yellow daffodils dotted the wildflower meadow, paired with blooming forsythia.

“I don’t know how you can eat that.” Charlene wrinkled her nose. “It really amazes me that in the twenty-first century people still think they can indulge themselves in acts of barbarism that destroy innocent animals.”
