I love Christmas, but without Easter, Christmas would be just another birthday celebration.

But Easter is a day celebrating Jesus.
Victory over death.

But it still sucks to think about who I have lost.
I miss my grandma more each year.
She’s been gone for 12 years this June.
Easter (and holidays in general) have not been the same without her.
I still go to her grave site whenever I am in the area and feel like talking to someone about life.


Combine that with the fact that my parents divorced when I was 20 and it makes for awkward conversations when people mention holiday traditions.

I’m not even sure what to say anymore.
I guess I need to start making my own traditions as a single 29-year-old.

What is your favorite Easter tradition?
