Hopping Down Hershey’s Bunny Trail

Every year, when Easter rolls around, I can’t resist adding a little Hershey’s chocolate of all kinds to my kids’ baskets. Over the years, I have always had an Easter basket waiting for my girls when they woke up on Easter morning for that yummy traditional burst of sugar before heading off to church for Easter morning services. Along the way, Reese’s chocolate peanut butter eggs have become a staple in my house this time of year.

One tradition we always had over the years was to head to the mall and pick out lovely pastel Easter dresses that the girls could use for church throughout the Spring and summer. I wish I had pictures of them all now because now I can barely get my girls in dresses as teens and the dresses we find for their age are cocktail dresses or tight pencil skirts. I miss the pastel flowers and fluffy shimmery cloth that billowed as little girls ran through fields searching for colorful eggs filled with candy, coins and stickers of all kinds.

Fortunately, the Easter egg basket tradition never grows old and my girls are still anticipating a basket of goodies, a grand sweetness in light of what we celebrate on the day of Easter, the sweet resurrection of Christ and the joy of God’s grace and mercy in our lives.

This year I made my own collection on the Celebrate with Hershey’s Page, which my daughter laid claim to quickly when it arrived in our house.
