First and foremost, I believe that Easter is a sacred religious observance. I was raised going to a sunrise service for as far back as I can remember and continued the tradition while in college.
Now that we have kids, I'm reminded about my confusion and mixed feelings regarding the 'Easter Bunny.' Sure, its a fun game to play with the kids and with each other, but what does it have to do with the true meaning of Easter? How much can we talk about the Easter Story with our children and when? What kind of Easter basket do we 'need' to have ready?
Personally, I don't think gifts are necessary at Easter. BUT, if you truly feel you want to give your sweetie a little circe for the day, here's my suggestion - the Reese Egg.
What does it have to do with Easter? Absolutely nothing, except that they only are sold at this time of year. That means if you blink, you'll miss it.
I don't buy myself many treats, especially of the chocolate/peanut butter/sugar kind. If I did, my grocery bill and waist line would be much, much larger. However, I enjoy to receive these treats from time to time as an Out of the Blue. (So, Kate, nudge nudge...)
If you know of a little something your loved one enjoys but rarely treats themselves to, pick one up on your way home today. Showing up with a little surprise, especially one that you know they'll treat as 'fun treat' shows that a) you attend to their interests and b) want to do things that make them happy. Basically, it shows your friendliness towards them.
Little treats go a long way... even on Easter.
