Walk Down Memory Lane To See What Easter Looked Like In The ’50s & ’60s


Do you remember what Easter was like when you were a kid or a young adult? These days it seems like kids keep getting more extravagant items in their baskets. Back then, it was a simpler time. Easter was a day to go to church, get dressed up in your Sunday best, and then have a nice meal with your family.

There were certain trends that were popular around Easter in the ’50s and ’60s that kids these days might not know about. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and see how many of these times or things you remember:
