Easter is my favorite religious holiday.
Yes, I realize it represents that our Lord died for our sins and was resurrected.
My favorite part is the candy.
Believe it or not, my Mom made my sister and I Easter baskets until we
had our own kids! Then, she made them for her Grandkids....
Although my parents never gave us baby chicks (dyed pink or purple)
Or baby ducks (they are awfully cute)
My neighbors did get a baby duck that grew into a fun pet in their backyard...
Until our dachsund got out of our yard &
promptly ran over and killed the duck that he used to "play" with through the fence.
I know they are pure sugar..
I do love peeps.
We dyed eggs for hiding
And tried not to peek where Mom and Dad were putting them.
There were always plenty of jelly beans
Sometimes they would get lost in the basket grass
So once eveything else was gone, you could go on a treasure hunt.
Although Easter is over a month away
The grocery stores are completely stocked with every kind of confection
Tempting me to buy some and stash it somewhere.
Or eat some.
