Happy Easter

Easter is a time to decorate the home with spring colors, decorate baskets full of treats for the kids, and color eggs to hide outside. It's also time to recognize the true meaning of Easter and how special it is. Here is a little history.........

Easter Day is the day Christians remember Jesus rising from the dead. After his brutal crucifixion, a large stone was rolled over his tomb. But shortly after his death when followers went back to honor Jesus, the stone had mysteriously been moved and only the cloth that wrapped Jesus' body was laying there. As the story goes, Jesus' body was no longer in the tomb and he had in fact risen from his death in order to save us all. An angel nearby this tomb told his followers of the miracle that had taken place.

Thank god for all his blessings

Saint Patty's Day

Saint Patricks day is less then a week away. It's a day to pull out the green clothes from your closet, set the cornbeef in the crock pot and finally find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! hahaha. It's has become fun for people to get into the irish spirit and celebrate the traditions. Now here is a little history.....

Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck. Most importantly, to those who celebrate its intended meaning, St. Patrick's Day is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide.

So, why is it celebrated on March 17th? One theory is that that is the day that St. Patrick died. Since the holiday began in Ireland, it is believed that as the Irish spread out around the world, they took with them their history and celebrations. The biggest observance of all is, of course, in Ireland. With the exception of restaurants and pubs, almost all businesses close on March 17th. Being a religious holiday as well, many Irish attend mass, where March 17th is the traditional day for offering prayers for missionaries worldwide before the serious celebrating begins.

In American cities with a large Irish population, St. Patrick's Day is a very big deal. Big cities and small towns alike celebrate with parades, "wearing of the green," music and songs, Irish food and drink, and activities for kids such as crafts, coloring and games. Some communities even go so far as to dye rivers or streams green!

Check out these cute ideas!

Make sure to wear your green so you don't get pinched! ;)
