Easter is one of those holidays that sometimes sneaks up on us. You rarely see Easter countdowns or memes building excitement leading up to Easter Sunday. Though it might not have all the hallmarks of holidays such as Christmas, it is none the less fun. In fact, in our house, it was my son’s favorite holiday. Even as a child, he liked Easter more than Christmas or Halloween. Because of this, Easter has always been a big celebration in the Sparks household. This year I decided to make a list of the 5 things I enjoy most about this holiday. I used my family photos to help me decide what rated high enough to put on the list.
No. 1 Dying Eggs
Dying eggs was always a fun time in our house. During non-pandemic years, friends and family would be invited over to help us dye. We’d turn the process into a party.
No. 2 Easter Baskets
I love filling Easter baskets with treats and toys. When I see the look of joy on the recipient’s face, it makes my heart sing.
No. 3 Easter Egg Hunt
I love hiding and finding eggs. When I was a child, the Easter bunny would leave me a poem that told me where to find some of the eggs he’d left. Once my child was born, we continued the tradition of getting up on Easter morning to find a thank you card left by Mr. Cottontail that told him where to begin his hurt for the special eggs Peter had left.
No. 4 Family
There is no greater Easter pleasure than spending time with those we love. Easter is a time for us to get together and celebrate the love we have for one another.
No. 5 Easter Sales
When most of us think Easter sales, we think about finding a deal on a cute pair of shoes, or fancy Easter outfit. However, this year, I wanted to run a sale of my own. To celebrate Easter, I convinced my publisher to put my entire Alpha Council Chronicles series on sale. Each story is only $0.99 so you can get the entire 6 book series for less than $6. Better hop to it, though, because this sale ends 4/16/2021.
Here’s a little bit about the series:
In the shadows of the night, there exists a band of warriors–a group of vampires, known as the Alpha Council. Their vow, to protect not only their kind but the humans existing alongside them.
Together they will confront an extraordinary destiny of peril, passion, and dark pleasures in the riveting paranormal romance series, The Alpha Council Chronicles.
