Easter Get-Together

We were invited by some of the Filipinos who live in the area for an Easter get together at Starvaggi Park last Sunday.  I enjoyed   lots of Filipino foods and the kids had so much fun playing with 
I brought  two Easter buckets for the Burritos to use during the egg hunt.
Counting the eggs that they got.  The eggs were loaded with candies and chocolates!


Aside from the sweets inside the eggs, the organizer also prepared  prizes for the kids.  Mr. Burrito got the second prize and Ms. Burrito the third prize.  Below are the prizes they got, thanks Tita Agnes!
Easter here is definitely  different  from what I have known growing up.  IN the Philippines, Holy Week is more on contemplating, praying, fasting, and all that religious stuff.  Over here, it's more of a fun celebration,  but  I like it because it's fun for the kids.

  2. This is really a wonderful activity with other Filipino people around.. Today Holy Week are being celebrated in a different way. Most people go to a resort and take advantage of their long vacation. But there are others still who prefer to stay home and visit religious place to reflect.

  15. kids' egg-hunt is also popular here at Easter...well, probably in major cities. it's a party atmosphere in the mall and parks on Easter. in the provinces, i don't think kids ever heard of Easter egg-hunt.:p
