||What's your Easter tradition?
TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — People in North Mississippi prepared for Easter on Good Friday.
"[We're] shopping for the kids, making sure the kids have their Easter dresses," Tupelo resident Andre Johnson said.
The Mall at Barnes Crossing was the place to be Friday.
Many start their holiday weekend by searching for not just any outfit, but a special Easter look.
"Something that looks like spring and doesn't look like it's going to rain outside," Fulton resident Judy McFadden said. "Something bright and cheery."
Painting and hunting Easter eggs is also on the top of the list.
"I like to draw and stuff, so that's fun and I like doing it with my family," Fulton resident Gracie McFadden said.
For some kids, Easter isn't complete without a trip to see the Easter Bunny.
The Allen's of Pontotoc brought their children to meet the Easter Bunny for the first time on Friday.
"We're going to try to start a new tradition," Yvonne Allen said.
Out of all the traditions, there is one that everyone enjoys together.
"Visiting family and friends and just enjoying the pretty weather," Johnson said.
That's what the McFadden family does every Easter, ending the day with a family dinner.
"We eat, talk and maybe sometimes goof around," Charla McFadden said.
No matter how you celebrate the day, everyone takes time to remember what the holiday is all about.
