The four day Easter weekend used to drag on for what seemed like much more than four days. It used to be a relief when Easter Monday rolled around and you knew the end was in sight and life would soon be back to normal.
Of the four days, Easter Monday was my favorite. Though we weren't allowed to work, it wasn't a day of fasting. If we weren't invited to someone's house, and didn't have anyone invited to our house we children would often go hiking.
A well known hiking/biking trail is near our house. It doesn't see a lot of use by the Amish, but with today being Easter Monday I expect to see a number of groups of Amish youth passing our house to go hiking.
