There are many ways that people in the Shire celebrate Easter.
The methods range from downright silly to charming, to inspiring and devotional.
Let's start with silly to charming.
A fairly recent tradition is one where people hang
brightly colored plastic eggs from outdoor trees:
Colorful plastic eggs are sometimes small:
And sometimes, bigger than even the strongest bunny could carry:
Some people decorate their landscape with lots of little Easter characters:
While others put bunny ears on a patient puppy dog:
Of course there are others who keep their heads
and let beautiful spring flowers and trees express their Easter joy:
And some folks attend Easter services at dawn.
Here is one of my favorite sights in Norfolk, St. Mary's Cathedral:
I love its Gothic style architecture and its ornate spire rising into the blue sky.
Whichever way you and your family celebrate this Easter,
I hope you experience the joy of shared traditions.
