Which religious holidays were celebrated in your home? Describe.

Christmas – We celebrated this holiday by giving gifts, attending church services, and decorating a Christmas tree. We would sometimes visit my grandparents in Philadelphia, and spend the holiday season with them.

Ash Wednesday – We went to a special church service, and wore a cross of ashes marked on our foreheads.

Palm Sunday – We went to a church service, and received palm leaves commemorating Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem prior to his crucifixion.

Easter – We usually dressed up in special Easter clothes, and attended a church service. Afterwards, we ate a special meal, hid (and looked for) colored eggs, and consumed a basket of candy (with chocolate bunnies).
