The Unscripted Weekly: Easter Traditions

The Unscripted Weekly features links to various articles I have come across in my travels across the internet.  Feel free to share your own internet journeys, and thoughts on these articles in the comments section.

I’ve heard a lot about Easter over the years – from the very religious to the atheist view.  I am not what I would describe as religious, but I am spiritual.  I love the sense of connection that I feel at Easter, and spending time with family and friends is important to me, so the Easter meal is something I enjoy planning and preparing.

But how did Easter start?  And what does the bunny bring to the season?  I did a bit of research to find out.

Check out the Origins of Easter by Penny Travers on ABC.  She gives a nice primer on the holiday and its origins.

And here’s a sweet ad that details the tradition of the Easter bunny complete with all the trials and tribulations of growing up.  It’s a touching rendition of what it means to grow up different, and ultimately come back home to the family that loves you.

And while many of us know the traditions of Easter within our own country, other countries celebrate in a variety of ways.  Check out these traditions brought to you by LifeZette.

Many young children take part in the Easter tradition of dyeing eggs, and sometimes it is fun to jazz up the eggs.  Don’t know how?  ParentMap has us covered with these 15 ideas. So grab the craft box, and get started!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend of joy.
