We love this colorful photo of decorative eggs so much, we use it around this time every year.

Easter is soon! Yesterday was Palm Sunday in the Western church and Holy Week continues through this coming Sunday, April 1—Easter Sunday. Orthodox Easter Sunday is Sunday, April 8 and if you are curious and respectful, you can watch the procession put together by three local Greek Orthodox Churches on Friday night, April 6. Head to 23rd Ave near 31st Street in the Ditmars section for that.

But until then, here are places to enjoy some Easter fun in the next week or so.
