It’s Easter, a day in which Christians commemorate the resurrection of Christ and kids anticipate the arrival of the most beloved provider of sugar rush euphoria.
While the resurrected Biblical figure is one of Easter’s prominent characters, young children would argue that he just doesn’t hold a candle to the Easter bunny.
The lovable egg-toting lagomorph, often depicted wearing dapper attire, is springtime’s answer to Santa Claus.
Decorating hard-boiled eggs is a traditional custom, providing the Easter bunny with his wares. Eggs are dipped into colorful dyes, from springtime pastels to brilliant tropical hues, and displayed in baskets lined with cellophane grass.
During the night before Easter, bunnies hide eggs for youngsters to hunt in the morning. They also present decorated baskets filled with confections and toys. Prized edibles include chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and jellybeans.
The classic Easter character is represented on greeting cards and stuffed animals. However, avoid representation on the dinner menu.
We all know much you love Lapin à la Moutarde, but please avoid having to explain to the kids why you cooked the Easter bunny for dinner.
When planning your family gathering, remember your kids will invite the Easter bunny. However, if you invite him, he’ll politely decline as you witness his white cottontail fleeing through your springtime tulips.
Hard-boiled eggs, anyone?
