It’s the day before the Bun lands…..that’s right – the EB (stands for Easter Bunny OR Elusive Bunny) will be making rounds tomorrow in the wee hours………and many of my friends have been on the search for the REAL EB…….to no avail. I think he leads a very secluded life and looking for him is an impossibility! Now I know that Easter means SO MUCH more than bunnies and eggs and candy and treats…..it’s about something HUGE that happened long, long ago that is much more significant than eggs.
But in my little life, on Easter morning the Bunny leaves me an Easter basket and even more fun than that, I get to watch my Dad running around the house in his pajamas looking for HIS Easter eggs…….trust me…….it’s definitely worth getting excited about.
Mom is expressly forbidden from taking photos of this event……it’s one of those urban legends that will remain a legend and I’ll just have to describe the scene to you on Easter Sunday for you to “get” the experience.
The egg hunting thing happens before ANYTHING ELSE on Easter Sunday. That’s right – ANYTHING (except of course me getting my breakfast). Dad will stumble around the basement with his basket searching for the eggs the EB left him during the night, THEN my parents have Easter morning breakfast, then go to church, then come home and Mom prepares “THE BIG MEAL”……this year it’s turkey and trimmings! Oh boy – I do enjoy a bit of the bird on rare occasions.
Not everyone celebrates Easter of course…………….many of my friends are celebrating Passover…….which began April 14th and will end April 22nd. I celebrate with everyone………..but for me, Easter is almost here and I just can’t WAIT to find out what the EB brings me this year in my little basket! Maybe bacon???????
MAY THE BUN BE WITH YOU…….
