Happy Easter!

He has risen! Christ Has Risen! He lives!

My dad would say Christ has Risen, in Slovak, on Easter Morning and greet everyone with that when they came to our house on Easter Day. (Kristus vstal z mŕtvych)

Oh, the sweet memories of Easter Morning… My mother would have the meal prepared and she would keep it warm in the oven. But first, we went to church…

Mother made my outfit and my sister’s as well. White patent leather shoes, my sweet little dress and a special Easter Bonnet. And of course… I had little white, lace gloves! We would sit in church and sing the best hymns ever… but “In The Garden” was my favorite. Here is a You Tube Video singing my favorite hymn…I just love it!


 After Church Mom would put out the spread… we would eat like Kings! My favorite part of Easter was the Paska Bread. I made some for our Easter Feast today.

It’s a sweet, dense bread. It’s delicious right out of the oven or toasted the next morning. Plain with butter or decadent with jam.

After our early dinner we would set out and look for our Easter basket. My Easter Basket today looks more like this…

Our table is set and ready for friends to come over…

Happy Easter My Friends! Christ has Risen! He lives!

Until Next Time~ Nancy

    What wonderful traditions and unfortunately, so many of the younger generation don’t pass these traditions on. 🙁 !!! I LOVE that you make the Paska bread that your mother made. Is it a recipe to share?
