I love this weekend!
The Easter weekend is the whole package. If you’re travelling, well you’d be gone already. Maybe back on Sunday night or at least Monday afternoon (that is if you don’t work in radio).
It is truly a “blessed” weekend with Friday and Monday as days off. A true 4 day weekend, Christmas can be cruel and doesn’t always give you that – mostly it is 2 days – Christmas and Boxing Day, except if it falls on a weekend.
A long time ago, friends used to hold Good Friday Parties. We had turkey or ham, mashed potatoes, veggies and drinks! No bars were open back then – the 80’s and no businesses were either.
Those were classic times. So many of those friends are now gone.
One year we even decorated Easter Eggs and dropped them off at people’s houses. Some kind of kooky! Says a lot about me .. doesn’t it!?
Turkey-fest continued from that group of friends to a new bunch. Now it’s dwindled in my world, but I’m sure others do it – just with a new title. I kind of miss it!
In the world of media, its not unusual to spend your time with friends and their families because you just can’t get away. Travelling via air on holiday weekends can be busy and expensive! Driving is the best and surprising too. Hey pick up new friends along the way and get them to their destination. (Well, maybe not anymore!)
Have a great Easter weekend. Enjoy family and friends – take a moment to reflect on your past and what is coming in the future. Spring is here, new beginnings!
