Happy Easter 2016

Today is Easter Sunday.   The reason for today is the Resurrection of Jesus.

Easter is a very serious holiday, but we also have a lot of fun with it also.  The Easter Bunny comes to our houses and brings us colored Easter eggs, soft toys in the form of bunnies, ducks and chickens,  and every Easter basket also includes some of our favorite candy.

Often the Easter Bunny brings other favorite treats for our enjoyment.   Flowers are a popular Easter gift also.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, wish you all a very Happy Easter.

Easter Decorations

Easter is a serious Christian holiday, but it is also a fun holiday.  My neighbors have good decorations.

I like the Easter Express.

Then mom and I went to the store to see more items for Easter.  Many people buy a new Easter outfit.  They like to wear new clothes to church on Easter Sunday.  These flowers are Easter Lilies.

Easter colors are pretty pastels.

Peeps are colored marshmallow chickens.  There are a lot of peeps here.

So many Peeps

Mom says some people boil eggs and dye them pastel colors.  Then the Easter bunny comes to hide the eggs.  Children look for Easter eggs in the morning.   Several cities have Easter egg hunts for the children.

These chocolate bunnies look yummy.

We bought chocolate bunnies!

I like holidays that are serious, but are also fun.  I like Easter.
