Easter is by far my most favorite holiday, with Christmas being a close second. I think it’s the Spring and the pastel colors that appeal to me. Oh yeah, and let us not forget the CANDY!
When I was a child we had pretty good Easter baskets with tons of candy in them, or at least that’s how I remember it. We always got a chocolate bunny, a cream filled egg, Peeps, several other types of candy, and ALWAYS jelly beans stuck to the basket grass in the bottom of the basket. The black jelly beans were my favorite. I was a pretty weird kid.
I loved making baskets for my kids over the years and when my first grandchild was born I knew I would be the Easter Bunny for the grandchildren as well. So every year around this time I drop close to a couple hundred bucks on candy and assemble the baskets (that’s the fun part).
Yesterday after I had them all assembled, it was delivery time. This little Ms. Cottontail hit the bunny trail, but not without plenty of bunny food.
I hope your Easter memories are just as special as mine!
