Easter is a day in which Christians commemorate the resurrection of Christ and kids await the arrival of the beloved provider of sugar-rush euphoria. Christ is Easter’s most prominent character. However, kids would argue that he doesn’t hold a candle to the Easter bunny. To them, the lovable lagomorph 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 and displayed in baskets lined with cellophane grass.
On the night before Easter, bunnies hide eggs for youngsters to find in the morning. They also present decorated baskets filled with candy and toys. Prized edibles include marshmallow chicks and jellybeans.
Though Easter bunnies are presented as stuffed animals and on greeting cards, avoid any representation of the lovable character on the dinner menu. You love Lapin à la Moutarde, we get that. But please avoid having to explain to the kids why you cooked the Easter bunny for dinner.
When planning your family gathering, your kids will invite the Easter bunny. However, if you invite him, he’ll politely decline, and you will witness his white cottontail fleeing through your springtime tulips.
Hard-boiled eggs, anyone?
