Yesterday morning, the day before Easter, it was snowing at home in Colorado.
There were several commercials during the morning news advertising spring dresses. It reminded me that as a child, growing up in the Rocky Mountains, I never understood those advertisements.
We would go to Easter Mass, dressed a little nicer than for normal Mass, but our outfit was always finished off with a pair of worn out snow boots and a heavy coat. The Easter Egg Hunt always took place in the house and often there was a fire in the fireplace. I could not understand that people were able to wear spring dresses, white shoes and Easter Bonnets or search for Easter Eggs in a park during this time of year.
Of course now I understand that in some places it is actually warm and spring-like on Easter, but my experience of Easter still includes worn out winter garments.
I hope you had a great weekend full of promise for the new season.
