Don't put all of your eggs in one basket

Walk softly and carry a big carrot

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears

There's no such thing as too much candy

All work and no play can make you a basket case

A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits

Some body parts should be floppy

Keep your paws off other people's jellybeans

Good things come in small sugarcoated packages

The grass is always greener in someone else's basket

An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare

To show your true colors you have to come out of your shell

The best things in life are still sweet and gooey

The Irish Hare and Easter Origins

The Irish hare
The Irish hare is unique to the island of Ireland and is arguably the country's oldest surviving mammal. It has been present on the island since before the last ice age, which ended around 10,000 years ago.
Revered and celebrated in Celtic lore for centuries, The lunar hare is seen as carrying an egg, symbolically heralding the new cycle of life that comes with the spring. For ancient communities that had struggled to survive the winter with limited food reserves, eggs were often the first of nature’s bounty to save them from starvation. No wonder then that the hare was revered as a symbol of life and endowed with magical powers.
Irish hares only have about 2 babies in every litter. Unlike rabbits, hares are born fully furred and with their eyes open. Unfortunately, The numbers of these noble animals have declined dramatically in the last three decades. People who live in rural areas report that hare numbers are only a fraction of what they once were. With little protection in law, this unique species remains endangered and is now locally extinct in some areas.

Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy End of Innocence!

And that was the end of his Innocence!

I remember very clearly the night I shattered my son's belief in two ( or more) great fairy tales or legends.

I crept into his room at night to put some money under his pillow in exchange for a tooth that he had lost earlier that day.

Unfortunately, he woke up!

When he realized what I was doing, he thought for a second and said, 

"Does that mean there's no Easter Bunny?"

And that was the end of his Innocence!

I still feel guilty all these years later. Maybe this site is my feeble attempt to restore some of the magic of Easter???

The legend of the Tooth Fairy is about a fairy that gives a child money or gifts in exchange for a baby tooth that has has fallen out. Children typically place the tooth under their pillow at night. The fairy is said to take the tooth from under the pillow and replace it with money once they have fallen asleep.

The End of the Innocence LyricsArtist(Band):Don Henley

Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn't have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standing by
When "happily ever after" fails
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales

Easter Cookies for your Easter Egg Hunt

 We love to decorate Easter eggs. Does that sound typical? Well we don't decorate hard boiled eggs, we decorate sugar cookie eggs. These cookies are bound to make any egg hunt fun. At least a lot better tasting than a hard boiled egg!

Meeting the Easter Bunny

On Easter morn at early dawn
before the cocks were crowing,
I met a bob-tail bunnykin
and asked where he was going.
"Tis in the house and out the house
a-tipsy, tipsy-toeing,
‘Tis round the house and ‘bout the house
a lightly I am going."
"But what is that of every hue
you carry in your basket?"
"Tis eggs of gold and eggs of blue;
I wonder that you ask it.
"Tis chocolate eggs and bonbon eggs
and eggs of red and gray,
For every child in every house
on bunny Easter Day."
He perked his ears and winked his eye
and twitched his little nose;
He shook his tail -what tail he had
and stood up on his toes.
"I must be gone before the sun;
the east is growing gray;
"Tis almost time for bells to chime."
So he hippety-hopped away.

Written by: Rowena Bennett, 1930 

An Easter Poem - Egg Hunt

Happy Easter Poem
Easter morning, Easter morning, Easter morning dawning fine
Have to find the Easter eggs now, I've already picked up nine.
Fill the basket, fill the basket, fill the basket every time
Candy eggs and jelly beans are tucked behind each growing pine.
Bend and scramble, bend and scramble, bend and scramble, reach and climb.
Find each hidden Easter treat now, pick them up and they'll be mine.
See them glow and see them glisten, see them glow and see them shine.
Join me with my Easter candy and together we will dine.

Your Easter Egg is near now,
On this I'd like to bet
The next place that it's hiding in
You're bound to get a little wet.   (Egg hiding in the bath)

Easter Bunny FootprintsEaster Bunny Footprints

Another twist for your Easter egg hunt is to use bunny footprints to give the children clues where to look for the eggs.

Memorable Easter Egg Hunt Story

 Special Easter egg hunt.  Try sprinkling talc on the wooden floor, then using the bunny footprints, they created a trail in the talcum powder.
Place carrots at strategic points, but also gnaw them to look like the rabbits had been there.  One neat touch is to leave a spilt saucer of milk in the kitchen.

Giant Easter Egg

Giant Easter EggGiant Easter Egg

The Belgian chocolate producer Guylian made this chocolate egg with at least 50,000 bars [amounting to some 1950 kg of chocolate in total] on behalf of the city of St. Niklaas, Belgium. The egg measured 8.32 metres high. Apparently twenty-six craftsman worked altogether 525 hours to build the egg.
After displaying the egg in the open air for a week, and in all weather conditions, Will and Guy suspect that it is unlikely to taste very good.
For many children Easter wouldn't be the same without chocolate eggs. However, those eggs generate around 3,000 tonnes of waste just from their packaging alone.

Fabulous Fabergé Easter Eggs

Fabulous Fabergé Easter EggsFabulous Fabergé Easter Eggs

Peter Carl Fabergé original name Carl Gustavovich Fabergé [1846 - 1920] was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs, made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials, each egg is about 5 inches tall and depicts a different event or theme in Russia's history.
He was commissioned to create the first egg for the twentieth wedding anniversary of Tsar Alexander III and his wife Maria Feodorovna, of Russia, in 1885.  Every subsequent Easter, another egg was made for Maria as a gift from her husband.  After the passing of Alexander III, his son took up the tradition presenting his wife and his mother with their own custom Fabergé egg every Easter.  In all, 50 eggs were commissioned; to this day eight are still missing.
This is the Coronation Egg, which features the coach that Empress Alexandra rode into Moscow in 1897.

Hot Cross Buns and Lent

Hot Cross Buns and Lent

There is a centuries-old children's rhyme remembered in the UK; this familiar nursery rhyme, "Hot cross buns," originates from the call of the street vendors who sold them in Elizabethan times. [1533-1603]As Easter marks the end of the Lenten fast, food is an important part of this festival. Wheat is another symbol of life and on Good Friday many people in Europe and North America eat hot cross buns. 
Hot Cross Buns Ditty
Hot cross buns, hot cross buns
One a penny, two a penny
Hot cross buns;
If you have no daughters, give them to your sons.
One a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns.
Hot cross buns
Hot cross buns
If you haven't got a penny
A ha'penny will do.
If you haven't got a ha'penny, Well God bless you.
Hot Cross Buns HistoryHot Cross Buns And Easter
Dating back to medieval times, the buns were traditionally eaten on Good Friday, but they are now popular all around the Easter season.  These sweet treats, fragrant with fruit and spices, are marked with a cross, either slashed into the dough before baking, or drizzled on in icing afterwards.  The history of hot cross buns dates far back to the pre-Christian era. It is thought that they are descendants of the small cakes offered to Eostre, the goddess of spring.  They may have been marked with a cross even in ancient times, to represent the four quarters of the moon. In later centuries the church, unable to stamp out ancient pagan traditions, decided instead to "Christianize" the buns by associating the cross with that of Jesus.
Paschal bread, made in a round shape, is very popular in Eastern Europe [in Russia it is known as paska.]
The German Easter loaf is Osterstollen and in the Netherlands people eat a sweet bread filled with raisins and currants called paasbrod.
