Easter, which celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead, is Christianity’s most important holiday. It's called a moveable feast since, unlike most holidays, it doesn’t fall on a set date every year. Easter is observed annually between March 22 and April 25. In addition to the religious importance of this day, there's also fun as children (and many adults) look forward to sweet treats.
Our resident penguin, Percy, was decked out in an Easter bonnet thanks to this homemade creation by a neighbor. The door frog doesn't wear a hat (as everyone knows, right?).
Some fun Easter Bunny "facts" from an online source:
- The EB is a hare, not a rabbit; hares are larger, faster and have longer ears and larger feet and live above ground
- "His" name is a secret and the EB is thought to be a male
- NORAD doesn't track the EB as it does for Santa
- Doesn't have helper "elf" bunnies
- Delivers over 1 billion baskets worldwide annually
- First stop is Christmas Island; last stop is American Samoa
- Mailing address is not published and the EB phone number is unlisted
- Has an email address at easterbunnyemail.com
- Egg-cercises and does hare-robics to keep in shape
- Lives in a top-secret location and not on Easter Island
- Doesn't have a "naughty" or "nice" list, but knows if children are naughty
- Believed to be 400-500 years old larger than an average bunny of 3-12 lbs
- Doesn't use a sled to travel around the world; no one knows HOW he does deliveries
- Enters homes using a magic key and only for "believers"
- YES, of course, there is an Easter Bunny.
We will be spending the holiday weekend with family and friends. And no Easter holiday would be complete without an egg hunt and egg coloring events with the grandkids. As in past years, we too will join in the coloring fun and will share it in a future post.
We wish everyone an egg-citing and hoppy 🐰Easter celebration 🐣
