Happy Easter!March 27, 2016
Growing up, my birthday always fell on or days from Easter. My mom would stay home cooking the Easter meal and my dad would wake me up by pulling my toes. I'd get dressed in one of those over-sized Easter dresses - with the white Easter shoes and the socks with ruffles that I wore on top of my stockings, get my basket (which didn't have candy but things in relation to the holiday) and head out the door to church (raised catholic). Just me and him. My dad would wear the nicest clothes. I admired him, looked up to him, and always would tell my mom how great he was. Then we'd go to Burger King for lunch (he was very frugal lol and since it was my birthday, my meal was always free). We'd then go visit a few people and invite them over for Easter dinner. Our house was filled with love, friends, and family. I'd have to say that Easter was the best and my most favorite holiday.
