I know there are a lot of pagan rituals that are associated with Easter. After all, so many of our Christian holidays came about to thwart pagan practices. The thing is that Easter and Jesus' resurrection are a time for hope and rejoicing. The Easter Bunny visited me when I was growing up as a celebration of the special day and he has come for Gracie and Lucas as well.
When we woke up this morning (after 7 am - YAY!), Gracie and Lucas were not anticipating anything. After all, I haven't said anything to them about the Easter Bunny coming. They were delighted to see small baskets waiting for them in the living room. Just a bit of chocolate (let's be real, some of this is for me), a toy, and swim suits for the summer. As I write this, Gracie and Luke are in the bathtub playing with his brand new cars. The giggling and laughing is such a wonderful sound!
