The Easter Bunny

We don't celebrate Easter like everyone else. There's no Stations of the Cross for us or blessing our basket of food on Good Saturday or even Resurrection Mass on Easter Sunday. But there is time spent together, good food, and the Easter bunny.

It's the whole Santa Claus dilemma all over again, right? Nope, not here. Somehow my children completely believe that Saint Nicholas delivers presents to children all over the world on Christmas Eve, but think the idea of a "real" Easter bunny hiding treats in the yard is just plain ridiculous.

It was pretty difficult to get to the store to buy those treats without them, but we did it. As we walked in the store, Misiu told me that our neighbor from the village had called and asked us to buy her a rabbit. She couldn't find one in the village. The lady passing out flyers had just given me a coupon for the pet store, so I headed in that direction. "To eat," Misiu said. "A rabbit to eat." Oh.

Thinking about the Easter bunny and all, it was hard to swallow, I have to say.
