1. in many places in the world -- even here in North America -- there is no snow at Easter. Even more shocking: people have green grass at Easter.
2. churches host Easter Egg hunts.
I still don't understand why the Easter Bunny gets a free pass by the very same cohort who snipe "Keep Christ in Christmas" and demonize Santa. Truthfully, I don't really care since I'm still up to my eyeballs in snow. I'm mostly just pleased that I don't have to attend church three times this weekend, as was my family's custom in my youth.
Mr Wrath designed an Easter Egg hunt for the boys. It was one part chocolate-palooza, one part science class, one part Amazing Race. To get some of their clues, the boys built a popsicle stick bomb, constructed an electromagnet, blended colours and deciphered words written with invisible ink (lemon juice) on paper.
Our family concluded the day with a meal of pork vindaloo, kichadi, naan and raita. Lindor dark chocolate bunnies were our dessert. We threw open the windows to share the delicious smells with the neighbours. Which is EXACTLY why Jesus died on the cross.
