Hippity, Hoppity Easter is on it’s way!
I know it is supposed to snow tonight, but I promise you that Spring is right around the corner and Easter will be here in just a few weeks (April 5th).
It’s hard to believe that since I associate Easter with green grass, tulips and warm weather, and if it wasn’t for aisles full of Easter goodies at the local grocery store and retail stores it wouldn’t even seem like the spring time holiday.
As an Adult I have so many fond memories of Easter. My mom would take us to our grandparents house for yummy food and Easter egg hunts. Oh man how much I miss the easter basket, dying eggs and easter egg hunting days in Grandma’s backyard. My Mom-mom would fill all of the brightly colored plastic eggs with the best chocolates and quarters. We would grab our baskets and run around the yard collecting brightly colored eggs as many as we could. I still remember shaking the eggs to see how they are filled, If they jangled, they were filled with quarters. If you were really lucky, you would shake a few silient eggs. They were the eggs filled with chocolate – jackpot!
When I think of Easter treats, chocolate instantly enters my thoughts. Whether it be in the form of hollow chocolate bunnies, peanut butter eggs, pastel candy-coated morsels, or those Oreo truffle eggs, chocolate is definitely a prominent theme during the Easter holiday.
Happy Easter. Hope the Bunny finds you.
