Am I the only person on the planet that doesn’t go in hard for Easter?
I usually get Charlie one medium-ish size chocolate egg and perhaps one dinky one and… Well that’s Easter! This year I’ve got the girls a small one too but that pretty much sums up our Easter!
But everywhere there’s cards, bunting, bonnets, bunnies, egg hunts, baskets full of Easter themed books and goodies and I’m sat here with my £1 cheapo egg.
We have never gone in for Easter and I don’t think Charlie has any idea about the whole Easter bunny concept (come to think about it – I’m not all that sure what it actually does!) Am I missing this holiday and letting it pass us by? I’ve never looked at Easter the same way as I do Christmas. To me it meant chocolate and bank holidays. I’m not religious so I’m totally hijacking the holidays in the commercial way but will the kids in years to come feel that I was an Easter grinch?
There’s no egg hunts (we did try one year and it was pitiful!) no gift baskets, no bunnies hopping around leaving notes and paw prints. There’ll be some chocolate for breakfast – and then probably Mom trying her best not to snaffle any eggs that relatives buy that are left on the side looking at me wistfully. (diet starts after Easter. Obvs!)
Happy Easter all – whatever that means! I’m glad to have helped bum you out on this holiday!!
