What’s your favorite thing about Easter? First, my favorite thing is what Easter celebrates: the sacrifice made by Jesus so we might be forgiven and have a home in heaven. After that, I enjoy all the pretty pastels colors of decor and desserts. And, we can forget all the cute baby animals this time of year!
