So, Easter is coming. Really? I couldn’t tell. Wow! The other day I went to Grant Park shopping mall because I had to buy toilet paper at Zellers. (great sale) I had to bring Alexandra with me because daycare was done for theday. Has anybody else noticed the ENORMOUS SIZE of the Easter section? What happened? I was shocked to see 10 aisles of chocolates, toys, eggs, books, clothing, baskets…..all easter? I am not sure how to deal? Remember when we were kids and Easter consisted of a few Oh Henry things and maybe a mesh bag of coloured foiled easter eggs? MAYBE, if you were lucky, an assorted basket of stuff from Laura Secord? (the big yellow pre-cadboury cream egg thing) NOW, it’s out of control. There is a giant egg for every single Nickelodean cartoon out there. Since when can you just make Dora and her friends out of chocolate and call that Easter? If you can take a toy….make it out of chocolate and stick something shiny on it…they have done it. Aren’t peeps marshmallow chicks good enough? Why do we need a Transformers robot egg?
What are you giving your kids for Easter? Are you going old school? or GIANT KINDER EGG new school? EASTER gets you 1000 points.
