A 1950s Easter

In the 1950’s, more than 90% of those living in the USA identified themselves as Christian, so a 1950s Easter was a big deal everywhere you looked. A typical day might have looked something like this.

The kids might have woken up to a wonderful Easter surprise!

And then the busy day began.

There were fancy outfits and Easter bonnets galore

of course, there was Easter Sunday Church service (This one held at a drive in theater)

Then  a stop at the bakery and the store for more Easter treats.

To end the day you might have gone to a show.

But no matter what you did, you did it surrounded by family and friends.

From our home to yours, we wish you a good old-fashioned styled, Happy Easter! May your day be perfect and your biscuits not burned.  (A family tradition in our house.)  🙂
