Easter is right around the corner and whether you celebrate it or not it is still a good weekend to go home and get away from school. Since I am so far from home I unfortunately cannot make it there and back in a weekend.
Good news though, I have an Aunt that lives about 30 minutes away in Littlestown, PA. Both my freshman and sophomore years, I was able to go up to her house for Easter and still be with family. This year I will be doing the same. I am looking forward to some home cooked meals and spending time with my cousins!
Last year, I had a little bit of a different experience since I was abroad. My mom came to visit and it just happened to be Easter weekend when she first arrived. I originally had nothing planned for us but then decided I should make her an Easter basket. I enjoyed finding little things about Budapest that were traditionally Hungarian items. We also went to the Basilica on Easter Sunday. Although the whole service was in Hungarian it was still pretty amazing. Plus, the only way to see the inside of the Basilica is if you go to church, what a better way to show my mom then on Easter Sunday.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I know I will!
