Though technically a religious holiday, Easter has become more synonymous with milk chocolate candies in the shapes of eggs and bunnies, fruity snacks in springy hues and all sorts of decadent desserts. Stock up on the goods in stores, but also think about making a few of your own delectable treats this year.
We imagine that at this point in the spring season, you've stocked up on loads of chocolate (or are anticipating a victorious post-Easter candy sale), faux grass and enough hardboiled eggs to live off of for the next six months. You've probably even posed with the Easter bunny, or at least passed one or two in the mall. But do you know why Easter is affiliated with such unique traditions?
Like many holidays, kids get the better end of the deal come Easter time. After all, it's the parents who stock giant baskets with mounds of chocolatey goodness, a wad of Easter cash, new spring clothes and adorable stuffed bunny rabbits. And it's the parents who plan expansive Easter egg hunts and myriad Easter activities and crafts. One other positive of being a kid on Easter? Watching cartoons, of course!
Take a break from dying eggs this year and re-watch some of these classic Easter cartoon clips.
While the Easter bunny is generally well-regarded for its fluffy belly, pokey ears and too-cute buck teeth, some humans just aren't so fond of the creature. We're talking about young kiddos who -- when faced with the giant creature every Easter holiday -- erupt into a fountain of tears, traumatic screams and eyes bulging out of their headss.
It's almost as if adults just want a little entertainment for the day. So, come Easter, they encourage a little PTSD by way of bunny rabbit.
