Easter Baskets

Easter is coming. It's less than two weeks away.

Yay! What's Easter?

It's a holiday. The Writer loves Easter because you don't have to do much for it if you don't want to. But The Writer goes all out anyway. Duckies and bunnies everywhere. And Easter baskets!

I don't like baskets. They're like cat carriers.

Not these baskets--they're filled with decorated eggs and candy. Yum! The Writer was in Target the other day looking at the Easter stuff. She saw an Easter basket for boys. It was filled with noisy, uncuddly electronic toys and wrapped in black netting! The Writer was so shocked she dropped the big chocolate rabbit she was holding.

I don't get it. What's the deal?

Easter baskets should be cheerful, with books and bunnies. Even baskets for boys. Like in this picture.

What century does The Writer live in?

I love Easter too. Easter baskets are so fun. Though growing up, Dad was too cheap to buy Easter grass. :) The black netting would have spooked me too.

The Writer says that basket looked like it was meant for a funeral! The Writer got Easter baskets until she was in her 20s. She misses getting them, but she fixes a fancy one for her husband. Instead of Easter grass she uses that brown twiggy stuff.
