Many people celebrate the Easter holiday which constitutes the renewal of the Christian faith and the rebirth of Jesus. Faithful parishioners will commemorate the life, death and resurrection of the Savior. Children will enjoy the jellybeans, Easter Egg hunts and the chocolate bunnies along with learning about the Christian faith. For many people, Easter also marks the beginning of the Spring Season and warmer weather. Families gather for large Easter dinners and the children enjoy seeing aunts, uncles and cousins that perhaps they do not live near throughout the year.
In honor of all Mothers, families all around the world will make mom breakfast in bed, mess up the kitchen and just shower her with affection all day long. Kids will make homemade craft gifts and try to be as good as they can. Mom’s deserve this one day a year for all their dedication and love that they bring to the family all year round. The Spring Season is perfect for the celebration of moms with all the flowing plants, trees and restaurants who serve up special meals.
Americans recognize those who have died serving our country and honor their families on Memorial Day. The holiday first started to honor those killed during the Civil War and was established on the last Monday in May. Washington D.C. was the scene for the first Memorial Day, where the Spring Season flowers were laid on the crosses at the Arlington National Cemetery. At 3p.m. on Memorial Day we observe a moment of silence in respectful remembrance of those who lost their lives and for their families.
The last holiday of the Spring Season is Father’s Day. This day is set aside to honor all fathers and men who have been father figures to enhance someone else’s life. We shower our fathers, uncles, grandfathers and those serving as Big Brothers with our thanks, love and small gifts of appreciation.
