Easter like Valentines Day, Cinco de Mayo and Christmas, originally had religious or historical ties but now are almost completely commercialized, and I for one think it’s a good thing. The more holidays we celebrate, the more days we can use as excuses for trips, partying and just seeing our loved ones. Easter is especially unique because every family seems to have there own traditions. Here are a few memories from the HCE marketing staff:
“In my family my parents made us festive baskets filled with candy and toys. But, on Easter morning when my siblings and I woke up there would be no baskets to be found, in our house the Easter Bunny was quite the prankster. We would spend the whole morning searching until we found our baskets. One year when the Easter Bunny was feeling extra devious the baskets were out on the roof! “ –Marketing Intern, San Francisco
“Easter was a pretty big deal in my family. We loved decorating Easter eggs and would always go crazy in preparation for the big day. When Easter morning came around my sister and I would be decked out from head to toe in Easter gear. We had Easter dresses, Easter baskets and even an Easter hat. After visiting church in the morning the real fun began, an Easter egg hunt!” – Marketing Traffic Controller, San Francisco”
“As a mom Easter Is a little different for me, every year my daughter wakes up to find a note on the door of how many baskets are hidden throughout the house. I watch her look for them and get to see how excited she is to find out what the Easter Bunny brought her. Which is always candy and socks. “ - Director of Interactive Marketing, San Francisco
