In spring,the grass awakens, the flowers bloom, the bird sings everywhere is full of vibrants scenes. The soft spring breeze blows and blows the green earth, wakes up the hibernating little animals, and also welcomes the most joyful festival of the year,Easter.
Easter is one of America’s traditional holidays. It is the day of the resurrection of the third day after Jesus Christ was crucified Easter eggs is the most important symbol of this holiday, it also symbolizes the start and continuation of life, and it is the hope of people’s future life.
During Easter, every state will host a variety of events to celebrate this holiday. In our New York Parent Child Relationship(PCR), on April 14, 2019 in Brooklyn which also hosted a big “Easter egg hunting” event, the community showed enthusiasm by participating in this event.
The egg hunting is the most popular game in our Easter event. One hour before the event started, kids and parents are already eating in the line, afraid to miss the chance.
When the workers are signaled that the event has started, kids became happy rabbits, picking up their baskets to pick up the Easter eggs and other little surprises.
The gift-exchanging section is also lined up with a lot of people which almost fill the whole park. In addition to the egg activity, there’s many other fun activities like face painting, arts and craft, egg tumble, and a lot more.
The Fantastic drum and hip pop performance was gave us a wonderful concert. When the performance ended, kids started to clap loudly to show their support.
The Taekwondo player’s flexibility and powerful performances also attracted a burst of applause. After seeing this aren’t you tempted to sign your kid(s) up for them to develop a hobby like this?

1. 2017: Our first Easter event When we first carry out this event, our team only contains 5 members and we only have one sponsor which is the 99 Favor Taste Restaurant, part of the fees are from donation made by mothers in our community. The mothers hope that there will be more exciting events that will make their kids joyful, and for them to enjoy this day.
Since we are low on fees, the eggs that we bought were very cheap and fragile. They were from China and is delivered to New York. The decorations were made by people who are willing to make it for us.
One that day, it was surprising hot, the temperature reached to 70-79 Fahrenheit and there were many accidents that happened. Because we were inexperienced, we can’t control the high ground leading everything to chaos. But the kids were full of happiness and were very joyful by the egg hunting. Our first event was a success.
