Editor Letter: A Time of Change

Michele Walker, Orlando journal editor (ROBERTO GONZALEZ)

Whereas the Christmas vacation season has all the time been particular and pricey to my coronary heart, my favourite time of 12 months is Easter. 

Maybe it’s the great thing about our church service, stuffed with the Easter lilies, which by no means fail to set off my allergic reactions. Rising up, our church was all the time crammed to the brim, girls decked out of their most interesting together with the compulsory bonnets and the gents trying like, effectively, gents. One thing in regards to the Easter egg hunts, the decorations and the celebration of Easter pleasure made it my favourite vacation.

It wasn’t till I moved up north that I really understood the profound expertise that’s spring; being disadvantaged of solar for months, the dearth of vitamin D, the terrain darkish and dank. Then got here the primary yellow bloom of the forsythia; what pleasure and anticipation that dropped at my coronary heart. A brand new starting.

This 12 months, Easter falls in April and Orlando journal has a pleasant story by Cynthia Van Gaasbeck, “Easter Brunches and Buffets in Orlando,” for concepts on the place to feast this Easter. Maintain studying for Cynthia’s “Easter Brunch with Aunt Lois,” a heartfelt tribute to household and the significance of childhood recollections.
