The History of Easter Baskets


Easter baskets have been providing Eastertime happiness to children of all ages for centuries. In addition to gathering eggs at Easter-egg hunts, children also enjoy eating their Easter eggs after Easter is over. Although the baskets are linked with Easter Sunday for Christians, they actually have pagan roots, going back to ancient times long before Christ was born. However, Christian Sunday school teachers often use Easter baskets to connect the idea of rebirth to the Christian concept of resurrection, making the Easter basket a positive teaching tool for children.

Longview Lockdown Ends Quietly

LongviewResidents of the Longview townhouses on Vreeland Avenue experienced a mass of police activity on Wednesday evening with SWAT teams and armored vehicles deployed in their normally quiet community.

The evening's unexpected activity began at around 6:30 pm, according to a longtime Eugene Drive resident, when neighbors on the block were advised by police to remain in their homes.  As the evening progressed, residents arriving into the complex were told that they couldn't go to their homes on Eugene Drive, and were asked to wait in the clubhouse.

Little information was available from the condominium association, but neighbors reported that someone who had recently inherited a home on Eugene Drive from a deceased parent had been living at the unit and had apparently had some mental health issues.  What triggered the police response is unknown at this time, however apparently police had been called to the home several times recently.
