Why Is Easter My Favourite Holiday?

When someone is asked what their favourite holiday is, Christmas almost always shoots out of their mouth without a second thought. With good reason. Everyone loves a bit of Christmas. 

Myself, on the other hand, I love Easter the most. 

It has nothing to do with the whole religious aspect of it- unfortunately- I'm not a very religious person. There's just something about Easter that makes me feel happy from the inside out.

I think what makes Easter so appealing is that it's the first holiday after Winter and trust me, being from Canada I am usually so ready for Spring to arrive and see the snow melt and the ice thaw. It kind of makes Easter feel like a fresh new start is upon us. 

After all the hustle and bustle surrounding Christmas I feel like Easter is totally laid back and I can actually enjoy the holiday without any stress. Not to mention it isn't a "huge" holiday like Christmas so you don't feel like you have to buy everyone and their dog a present. Also, chocolate. A holiday solely dedicated to chocolate will always be one close to my heart.

Am I the only one who loves the fact that everything turns pastel around Easter!? I'm a huge sucker for pastel anything so the time leading up to and surrounding Easter is like a feast for my eyes. 

So to sum it all up- everything about Easter just makes me feel happyHow can I not choose Easter as my favourite holiday when it makes me feel so good? 

What's your favourite holiday?


  1. I love the pastel aspect of Easter, too. The spring vibes make me happy. However, my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving! I love it so much. Glad i'm not the only one who doesn't choose Christmas as their favorite holiday, lol.

    Much love always,

    1. Love Thanksgiving!(especially when turkey burgers are involved :p ) What do you love most about it!?
      I'm glad someone else likes a holiday over Christmas as well haha Christmas is amazing but I don't think I've had a stress free Christmas since I was a child!

  2. My favourite holiday is Halloween, but it's because I am a huge fan of horror and the costumes! Thank you so much for sharing your favourite holiday! :)

    1. Big fan of Halloween myself! :) Every time I mention around Craig that my fave holiday is Easter he scoffs and says my favourite has always been Halloween. I then tell him Halloween isn't a holiday, it's a way of life! hahah It's a month long celebration :p

  3. Awww yes! I absolutely love the excitement running down to Easter, I guess I just love spring haha xD everything feels all happy, you can just feel spring in the air, and yes the chocolate too haha :D and an excuse to collect all the pastel and white rabbit decor haha!
