During the year, there are certainly times that you KNOW that something big is going on. It’s not necessarily every day or every week. If they were that common, then these incidences wouldn’t, in large part, be considered ‘big’. When you walk through a drug store or grocery store, home decorating retail shop or any shopping mall where there is a specific character for children to take pictures with, there are clearly signs that another one of THOSE yearly moments is at hand. Balloons and baskets; candy and eggs; dresses and suave suits; Sometimes, word descriptions provide enough for the imagination, to conclude a special holiday. So, the question remains: WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR YOUR EASTER WEEKEND?
