with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I am not Jewish, but have made some great Jewish friends through this community I’ve found on the Internet. I’ve learned a lot about their customs, their holidays, and the reasons behind them. I’ve also learned that Passover and Easter have landed on the same weekend this year, which has made things tricky for friends who are of the Chrismukkah variety.
We are not Jewish, but are Christian (my husband is on staff at our church as the Director of Children and Families), and so this is a Very Big Weekend. There is a Friday night service (too late for kids, so my husband will attend), a Sunday sunrise service (maybe one day) and then the regular Sunday morning service.
As for an extended family dinner, it’s something that we’ve always done, but it’s just not going to happen this year. One elder family member has some health issues, which has spread all of us us all over the board.
So, Saturday will see my husband, kids, and me skiing, with a dinner of pizza and nachos afterwards. Sunday night will see us eating together as a family of five, as we always do, and while I won’t have time to make a full turkey dinner, I’m envisioning a roast lamb with some Greek side dishes.
How do you celebrate Easter/Passover?
