It is this weekend for my husband’s family, Orthodox Christians who follow a different calendar from the Roman Catholic church.
Sometimes the days coincide, but more often than not the Orthodox Church celebrates at a different time.This year, the two Easters are very far apart, further than I can ever remember.
Of course, Catherine has always enjoyed getting two visits from the Easter bunny. This weekend, we’ll be busy making an egg hunt for her two little cousins.
This photo is from 2002, making Catherine just 6 years old.
It was about the time when, during our priest’s sermon about Lent one Sunday morning, I leaned over in church and whispered in her ear: “You know what Lent is, right?”
And she whispered back, very earnestly: “It’s the stuff in the dryer.”
