My family loves celebrating Easter- we love the religious aspects, the easter egg scrambles/hunts at the park, kids learning songs to sing in church, pretty new dresses in spring colors (a welcome addition after the long winter). I’m stuck on the baskets, though.
Santa Claus, I can understand. He has a toy shop, he brings toys and fills stockings. Cool.
But the easter bunny? What? How does he get in? Does he have a sack? Do I just tell the kids “I don’t know who left you a basket full of goodies! How exciting!”
And then there’s the basket itself- do I go against the flow in our house, and purchase candy? (For the Easter eggs, probably.) Does the bunny also purchase toys? Or, does my handiwork have such a strong signature to it that my four-year-old will immediately know that “Mommy made this?”
Will the bunny be visiting your house this year? What will he bring?
