  • Where to find an Easter Sunrise in San Diego County

  • Whether or not you hold religious beliefs (Christian or otherwise), or you simply appreciate a fine, early-morning pilgrimage (Easter or otherwise), consider the following treks to high places around the county. Allow at least 30 minutes to cover each mile of upward travel for each, and be mindful that on this Easter Sunday the sun rises above the mountains to the east just after 6:30 a.m.

  • “One Easter our family challenged each other to design eggs to look like celebrities,” said Terry. “We took blown eggs and created people out of them. There was an Abe Lincoln, a Groucho Marx, a Babe Ruth. The winner was my daughter’s Three Stooges.”

  • For Easter: Chicks?

  • I see the signs that spring has arrived at the Kelly home: hours of planting, barbecue dinners on the patio, wafts of jasmine floating in the kitchen window, and loads of requests for baby animals.

  • Blood of the Lamb

  • "After they crucified Jesus, on the third day, he rose to Heaven. That's the Resurrection. We all go up to Heaven after the third day."

None of us do.

The nails were tapered iron spikes approximately 5 to 7 inches long.
At some time, very late at night, somebody plays an old tape of Jim Morrison and the Doors. They turn it up so loud that it drowns everything else out.
  • Wild parties on Easter at the Colorado River

  • Easter at the Colorado River is like a holy pilgrimage for those who believe. They pour out of the hot cities of Southern California in endless caravans, crossing the mountains and deserts, enduring the merciless heat, suffering robbery at the hands of the Bedouin gas merchants, forging onward through the savage regions of Brawley, Indio, and Blythe.

  • Easter Sugar

  • We couldn’t use pectin because pectin is fruit-based. We wanted to make deep flavors, like chocolate pudding, and use real ingredients for flavoring to make the beans taste closer to the real product. The little kidney-shaped bean was nicer to eat, it wasn’t such a clump of candy in your mouth. Your teeth get right into the center of the bean. So, that was the birth of the Jelly Belly. That was 1976.
