The seasons of Lent and Easter are upon us. Perhaps you already celebrate Lent with your family. As for my family, we are not Catholic, nor do we belong to a denomination that usually celebrates Lent. I also do not condone the actions of people at Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday. But I do want to make the Easter Celebration just as exciting as we do Christmas. After all, Christmas would mean nothing without an empty tomb.Ideas and resources to help your family celebrate a Christ-filled Lent and Easter! Decorating, activities, adult bible studies, children's lessons, movies, and more!

So this year I am finding new traditions, decorations, waiting calendars, etc., to help my family anticipate Easter. And here are some of the resources that I found.
