By Charles Hopkins Published 03/13/2006 | Religion

Easter is a holiday that a lot of people can hardly wait for.  There is so much excitement that leads up to this glorious holiday.  You have to prepare for Easter day and make sure that you have the necessary items to make your Easter meal and day a great one for everyone.  This Easter day is a special time that we will spend with our family and friends. 

In order to make your Easter day an even better one, you want to plan ahead.  Make sure that you know what kind of meal that you would like to prepare.  It is important to go shopping early and make sure that you have everything that you need.  Grocery stores get very busy at this time of year so it is smart to get your items ahead of time.  You do not want to forget anything for your special meal. 

Most people like to get up on Easter day and go to church to celebrate this religious holiday.  It is a tradition to get all dressed up and get together with their friends and family and go to church.  This is special and memorable time for a lot of people. 

There are a lot of different things that you can do to make your Easter day one to remember.  You can make you own family traditions and do them year after year.  Having a special Easter tradition is something that you can pass onto your family for a lifetime.  You can have a special dinner, a special breakfast, or just spend some quality family time together. 

A lot of people have a fun Easter egg hunt for their children on Easter day.  This is something that kids and parents can have a lot of fun participating in.  It is a special tradition that you can have year after year on Easter day.  You can have all of the children in your family participate and even the other children in your neighborhood could be invited also.  It will be a special moment you can share for a long time.

Easter day is usually also filled with family photos.  You will see family members running around the house snapping pictures of everyone.  Easter photos are a great way to spend time with your family and friends and have the memories last forever. 

A lot of families also enjoy spending the day together making supper and enjoying each others company.  This is a time where families spend a day in the kitchen cooking and baking and working together to make their Easter dinner something special.  This is something that all ages can participate in. 

If you do not get to spend the day with your family and friends, you can spend the day talking to them on the phone.  This is also a way to spend quality time with them and sharing in the true meaning of Easter.  Some people live too far away from their families and cannot make it home to be with them, talking on the phone is a great way to stay in touch and share that special message with on Easter day.
