We’re ready for Easter at Card & Party Giant
Easter is considered by many to be one of the most important Christian holidays. It commemorates the resurrection of Christ and is associated with the rebirth of spring. Like most religious holidays, Easter is a time for families to come together and celebrate. Church services will be well-attended on Easter Sunday (March 27th) and later for the Orthodox Easter Sunday (May 1st). Families prepare traditional Easter dinners that often include lamb. The afternoon will include an Easter egg hunt for the children. Some families hide hard boiled eggs that have been dyed various colors; some place coins or candies in plastic Easter eggs; and others hide at least one golden egg, the finder of which is given a gift or special reward. The Easter bunny delivers baskets of candies, colored eggs, and small treats. Easter decorations have vibrant spring colors and may include tulips or other spring blooms in their design. Easter baskets are generally woven and often decorated with ribbons, filled with colored Easter grasses atop which are chocolates and small gifts for the children. Jelly beans are a favorite to represent the eggs. They provide a brightly colored display at the bottom of the basket. For those who like to be silly and have fun with the Easter holiday, there are the most adorable bunny ear headbands or cute little ducky costumes. In our family, the basket also had at least two hard boiled eggs that had been dyed purple or blue or green or peach. My siblings and I would find our Easter basket early in the morning, before our parents rose, and climb into one of the beds to “sort” the candies (translation: get rid of the black jelly beans). We would stuff ourselves with chocolate before breakfast and then go back to sleep until time to get ready for church. And while we didn’t really decorate the house for Easter, there were window decorations, Easter tablecloths, Easter napkins and the like that were part of our Easter tradition, just as they are for most folks today. Whatever you’re looking for, our party store is likely to have it in stock and available for pick up or delivery right to your door in time for your Easter celebrations.
