Residents share their Easter delights, dreams and desserts

Easter is a religious holiday full of tradition — but, for most, the day also conjures up dreamy thoughts of yummy foods and surprises that can be traced back to our childhood.

"What is your yummiest delight or craving when you anticipate Easter's arrival?" the Sun recently asked several in the community. Answers ranged from wine to ham, but most look forward to those coveted treats from our childhood.

Lane Rees keeps it traditional and looks forward to having lamb on Easter. "It is a meaningful tradition," he said.

In the same vein, Realtor Judi Rutland's favorite Easter food is Atlanta Ham.

Those who gave up a particular food for Lent are looking forward to enjoying it again. Such is the case with Swantree's Jim Carter, who is looking forward to having a big bacon cheeseburger with fries and a Coke.

However, as Easter draws near, very vivid memories from Realtor Keen Polakoff's childhood surface in his head, and quite fondly. He can still see the colored wrapped basket with the green bedding the Easter Bunny used to bring. "I have to get back on his route ... it's been years," he said. "Those Cadbury malted eggs speckled just so, what kind of bird laid those? The chocolate bunnies were fun, but those Cadbury's and jelly beans; I still smile at all the love and thought that Bunny put into it all."

Many others also recall the brightly wrapped basket, but that’s just the container — bring on the goodies!
