Ice Breaker – Easter

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Question:  What is one of your favorite things about Easter?

My Answer:  Besides the obvious spiritual answer, I like black jelly beans.  I don’t eat jelly beans very often, but Easter often provides the excuse or opportunity to eat at least a few black jelly beans (and marshmallow peeps).

There are several other things I really enjoy about the Easter season.  For me, Easter signals the official start of spring.  Easter means brunch or dinner with family and friends.  It means Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.  It means a sunrise service.

And Easter is a reminder of the ultimate gift I’ve been given.

Happy Easter!
