Easter could possibly be the celebration of the year I get least excited about.
Dont get me wrong I do like it, but in comparison to say Christmas Day or Mother’s day it really doesn’t rate!
Easter really has just become a commercial excuse to down millions of chocolate eggs without guilt…
Sounds shocking but it is true.
I must admit though, I cannot let an occasion slip by without enjoying the excitement the children bring with it.
So on Sunday morning I will put aside my distaste for overloading children with excess sugars, and enjoy their excitement as they discover their Easter Bunny Treats!!!!
What I am concerned about more than anything this year is the excessive price tag that traders and companies put on their eggs.
They know our kids want them.
They know we’re going to buy them.
Arghhh, I would much rather spend $15 on a toy for each child and give them a block of chocolate for the occasion, however I don’t think just the block would cut it!
What to do what to do…… 🙂
I will go out and buy some Easter eggs, but I will not be going overboard.
I’m going to put a massive focus on tomorrow’s Royal Children’s Hospital’s Good Friday Appeal, and ask the kids to donate their piggy bank savings to the cause.
Now that is money well spent!!!
I’ve added a link here to their webpage. Please check it out and donate if you can!
Give that they may Grow!!!!!
Wishing you all Safe and Happy Easter.
If you are travelling, stay safe on the roads, enjoy your family time and most of all…….
Have a basket load of FUN!!!!! 🙂
