Day 327 – Unusual traditions

D

When I was a little girl Easter wasn’t such a popular holiday in our house. Our traditions included a little cooking, getting new clothes and shoes and visiting family all day long so we can eat their food. ­čÖé That was about it and although it seemed lame for many of my friends I was really happy with that.
