I have had a hard time in recent years with the commercialization of Easter. When my brother and I were kids, we had Easter Sunday Outfits
Easter baskets filled with candy and toys, Easter Egg Hunts and of course we went to church...in our new clothes.
I mean check out those faces and those sponge curlers. Easter Happiness.
As my son grew up we had fun with all of the usual Easter festivities but now it seems too cute and fuzzy.You know... with all the bunnies, chickies and lambs, although they are a super cute sign of Spring. As a result I don't really decorate for Easter. Which is weird for me because I decorate for every holiday...even Elvis Day.
Today I was at the Rite-Aide drugstore and found chocolate in the shape of a Cross! I don't think I have ever seen Easter candy that actually had something to do with the true meaning for Easter. Have you?
Maybe it is a sign of things to come? I hope so.
