What is it about Easter candy? We buy it early, eat so much that we have to buy more to fill the Easter baskets, and keep eating it even when (in my case, at least) the artificial coloring produces headaches. I'm seduced by the lovely colors...it all speaks of spring and blossoms and life.
But wait, the same thing happens at Halloween. With candy, I mean. We buy, we eat, we buy more so we have enough to hand out. Face it, it's all about the sugar.
And here's a deep thought: Easter at our house requires Cadbury eggs, but their red, green, and blue foil wrap clashes with all the pastels of the other candy. Now that Cadbury has been bought by Kraft, I hope they maintain their quality, but I also wouldn't mind if they introduced seasonal colors for their foil wrap. I told you it was a deep thought. I notice these things.
Anyway, the kids are back in town and there will be modest Easter baskets (they don't eat a lot of candy yet) and Pa and Grandma will have plenty of candy leftovers! I hope it's a lovely sunny day for you and yours!
