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.
There was eggs to color and candy to eat.
And of course an Easter parade of music!
There were stories to read
And tv shows to watch
Bunnies to visit
And maybe the family cooked
Check out our 1950s Country Ham recipe
Or maybe they went out to dinner
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.)
