Easter Dinner and Manners
We host Easter dinner at our house every year. In addition to dinner, we also hold an Easter egg hunt in the backyard. We hide 300 eggs and 297 of them are usually found. I find the other 3 when I mow or are they are stepped on. WHOOPS, so much for that plastic egg.
After we find them all (or quit looking), we sit down for dinner. This is where it can get tricky with all the adults and kids in one room trying to eat.
Here are some manners that all kids should have, not only for Easter but anytime:
When asking for something, say “please” and “thank you.” This becomes even more helpful when you become married, so learn it young!
Don’t interrupt adults who are speaking unless there is an emergency. Wanting ice cream from the freezer is not an emergency, Pa-Pa locked in the freezer is.
When in doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save lots of trouble later. After that, you’ll realize that asking for permission is good but asking for forgiveness is better. But you didn’t hear that from me.
The world doesn’t care who you like or dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself. That’s what Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat are for.
Most important of all remember this. Easter is like Christmas…Jesus is the reason for the season. In the case of Easter, his resurrection changed EVERYTHING.
