Easter: As Described by Kids

Category: March/April 2017 Issue

Sometimes, it’s interesting to hear directly from children. Often, their unique perspectives cause us to think differently about things we take for granted. For instance, holidays. With both St. Patrick’s Day and the Easter season already here, we thought it might be fun to ask some local youngsters for the first thing that comes to mind when they think of Easter. 

Today, we share a few comments from local Delta area kids, who tell us their very favorite things about celebrating Easter. Sometimes their comments are comical, sometimes wise, sometimes sweet, but all are worthy of being shared. We hope something in here will either make you smile or help you recall the days when you were a kid, enjoying all that Easter has to offer.
