How We Celebrate Easter in the USA

Easter greetings, Everyone!

Here in the US it is popular for the family to dress up in their best clothes on Easter and go to church. After church children decorate and color eggs. There are special dyes sold for coloring the Easter eggs. Each child receives an Easter basket and is told that the Easter Bunny brought the basket as a gift. The Easter basket is filled with chocolate eggs and Bunnies and small toys. The family has a big meal, like at a family reunion. All the grandparents, aunts and uncles and sometimes out of town relatives travel to go to the Easter celebration. After the meal, the children have an Easter Egg Hunt.

The eggs that they had colored are hidden in the garden, and they search for them. The one who finds the most, is the winner.
