Managed to miss Easter entirely this year. No chocolate bunnies, no marshmallow peeps. My spring break fell this week and I was off for a week visiting my sis, shopping, biking, and general girl time. I hate how commercial the holiday has become, everything not on the history channel is about shopping and getting “new Easter clothes”. What about the religion? What about the fertility rites? Even if you ignore the Christian spin, how did a spring harvest festival get turned into stuffed bunnies and candy anyway?
