Easter bunnies, chicks and Chocolate!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Tampa Properties

Easter bunnies, chicks and chocolate are a rare combination that will come together next weekend with the celebration of Easter.  While the actual day is to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion at Calvary and marks the end of Lent, it has also become a day that we give live "Easter" bunnies, baby chickens, colored eggs and chocolate to each other and children as part of this celebration.

Unfortunately, most of these "live" bunnies and "chicks" will either be smothered (literally) with love, or neglected and will die within the first year!


Bunnies and Chicks



So, if Easter baskets are a part of your tradition, please leave out the live animals and only give chocolate, easter eggs and other non-living treats.  Something like......



yellow peeps


While the sugar content of chocolate and the yellow peeps may not be a great alternative for children or adults, their consumption can at least be controlled to some degree without having to explain the demise of "Peter Rabbit"!

Besides, I saw what you did last year.........


Saved Easter Bunny


Have a great Easter, however you choose to celebrate!

Steven -  Those are ugly numbers, so I hope your readers take your advice and buy chocolate, and candy bunnies and chicks instead of the real thing!  Great post!

Hi Steven, The only Easter Bunny's in my house are made of chocolate and usually don't last the week.

Funny doggie photo!  Live colored chicks and bunnies for Easter were more common when I was a kid.  I think the word has gotten out that they don't make good gifts for little children.
