Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

So happy Easter. Easter has always been possibly my favorite holiday. Now, remember I am a self-admitted church nerd, so holidays have always revolved around church for me. Everytime a holiday rolled around we went to extra worship services. Easter always had the best hymns and the cool Easter lillies, and the white banners and it was this big joyous occasion after somber, sad Lent. It always just fit my personality more. So I have always liked it. Well, a big part of Easter is the sunrise service. It's an earlier service than normal, to get a jump on the celebrating. My friends here at school and I weren't sure when the sunrise service was at the church we normally attend, but we thought something like 7:00 seemed right so we met at 6:30 to head out to church. Well, we drove by the church and the sign out front said 7:30 so we had about an hour to kill. We ended up going to a gas station for some coffee, and just kind of hung out for a while. Then we went to church where I was a little disappointed. There wasn't a large attendance, and it's kind of hard to have these big joyous anthems with ten people singing. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but there weren't a whole lot. Then we decided to skip out of the Easter breakfast (most churches serve some sort of weird egg bake or overcooked ham) and we came back to school and I took a nap until about 11:30 when we went to our friends house for Chinese food. It was homemade and pretty good, although it was truly weird to have Chinese food for Easter. We spent a while there, until about 6 or 7. Then I came back to my room and putzed away the rest of the night watching tv and surfing the internet. So all in all a fairly uneventful Easter, at least in celebration... not in meaning and significance!! Easter still remains one of my favorite holidays. Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
