Good Friday

Today is Good Friday, the day when Christians recall the passion and death of Jesus on the cross.

As I get older and more knowledgeable in my faith, I realize how important this day and weekend are to us. This is a time of reflection on Jesus, his amazing love, and his sacrifice on the cross.

But, like most, this weekend is the start of spring break for the kids and is full of decorating Easter eggs; receiving baskets, candy and chocolate, going to church and having lunch with the family.   It’s easy to get wrapped up in all the “things” this weekend brings and forget what we are truly remembering and how are we teaching this to our children.

What traditions do you hold and how do you teach the meaning of Easter to your children?
