Happy Easter, Passover, and start of spring to you and your family

Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts

Mary,

I love Easter. It’s family all the way.

When I was growing up, I loved to dye eggs with my mother and grandmother.
Even my Aunt Bee got in on the action. My eggs were creative, but Aunt Bee’s
eggs were always these beautiful pastel shades. When I was little, I insisted
that we eat her eggs last because I wanted to admire them the longest.

The tradition carried on with our kids — Amelia and Alex — and now Bruce
and I make a point of dyeing eggs every year with our grandchildren.

This week started a new tradition. For the first time ever, our
granddaughters, ages six and ten, have come to town on their own to dye eggs —
and to celebrate the holiday weekend. This year’s eggs have sparkles, decals,
wax writing and multiple colors, including one experimental egg that turned an
ugly blue-brown. (That egg has already been eaten.)

Yesterday, Bruce and I took the girls down to Plimoth Plantation — history
come to life. And we got back from visiting the penguins at the aquarium just a
few minutes ago. Tonight we’re joining friends at
a community Seder, and tomorrow morning we’ll be
going to the same church where Bruce’s Mom and Dad were married right after
World War II.

Lots of memories — both old ones and new ones.

Whether your family is celebrating Easter, Passover, or just the start of
spring — Bruce, Octavia, Lavinia, Otis and I hope you have a safe and happy
weekend.

Thank you for being a part of this,

Elizabeth
