An Easter Tradition - Pink Saturday


This year we are anticipating our annual Easter tradition where we gather with our close friends for food, fun and hunting eggs. The best part is that the adult men are "forced" to donn pink Easter hats to go out and hide the Easter eggs for the annual hunt. They are always good sports and we all get a few laughs at their expense. But it is just a genuine good time where even the adults get involved in the festivities. The day comes to a close with the Easter story told via the Resurrection eggs. Here are some photos from last year's gathering.

After the oldest kids get the plastic eggs filled with candy, the dads and friends donn the Easter hats and head outside to hide the eggs.  Meanwhile the children are anxiously waiting inside for the go-ahead to be allowed outside to begin the hunt. Once the eggs are hidden, everyone gets into the act - young and old, looking for the eggs.
And the day is topped off by delicious food, fun and games.

Please head over to Beverly's place at How Sweet the Sound to check out other Pink Saturday posts.

I love this tradition. Of course I love pink. I still have a pink hat that I wore for Easter about 40 years ago back when women wore hats more than they do now.
Happy Pink Saturday.

I think I will go ahead and have some pictures printed for my frames today. I love how they are "forced" to wear them. You have inspired me to show a pic of my dad being "forced" to wear a pink Santa hat for next week! I forgot all about that pink picture and it is so cute! Look forward to reading your posts.

Hello Hello! :-)

LOL I think those men are just great sports! Oh they may pretend they're resisting but in truth they're enjoying themselves :-)

Egg hunting is fun. I remember as a child I did it and then now seeing those little ones getting excited when the door is opened is priceless! WE hide hard boiled eggs dipped in color so that afterwards they can eat it for breakfast :-)
