That Bunny Don't Stop Here
I'm not sure exactly how it happened. But the Easter Bunny has no place in our celebration of Easter. My kids get baskets. This year, they get a movie, some books, some candy, a little stuffed animal. But those baskets are from Mommy and Daddy- not a bunny.
For me, personally, Easter is about 2 things.
1. The Christian celebration of the resurrection of Christ.
2. Gathering with family and friends for a meal and fellowship.
So the Bunny just hasn't had a place in our celebration. From the first Easter that we celebrated with Teagan, we never went into the idea of an Easter Bunny. I remember getting baskets from the Bunny when I was growing up. So it isn't like I'm just opposed to the idea. I think it just felt too complicated. It just felt like something else I needed to build up and stand behind and... I just didn't want to. I like that our baskets are gifts to our children from us.
How about you? What's the tradition in your family? Did you grow up believing in the Easter Bunny? Do you perpetuate the idea of the Easter Bunny in your family?
However you celebrate... Happy Easter! I hope you enjoy your plans for this day!
