Thank You Easter Bunny BAWK BAWK!

Some folks might like Peeps and some might like chocolate-bunnies & crosses (thanks Jen) but-I have a soft spot for Cadbury eggs-not the snicker flavors or orange or rasberry that they've come out with but the OG egg with the sugar cremed middle... hmmm... thank you easter bunny. It being easter today, my boyfriend John, and I were talking about what the easter bunny is supposed to do -is he like Santa and flys around in a basket dropping little candies from they sky? Did he only deliver to the good children of the world like Santa? Well in case you didn't know a little history...I deleted any references to him being fictional...em hum...

"The Easter Bunny is a character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs, who sometimes is depicted with clothes. The creature brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children on the night before Easter. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere in the house or garden for the children to find when they wake up in the morning."

The Easter Bunny was introduced to America by the German settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s.

According to the tradition, children would build brightly colored nests, often out of caps and bonnets, in secluded areas of their homes. The Easter Bunny would, if the children had been good, lay brightly colored eggs in the nest. As the tradition spread, the nest has become the manufactured, modern Easter basket, and the placing of the nest in a secluded area has become the tradition of hiding baskets.

Last nights show with artists Dennis McNett and John Reardon atYB was amazing and even had a piece to fit in with the easter theme-warning some might find offensive-sorry. But if you didnt' make it out last night in person and meet the artists you missed meeting some really great dudes- (Jen gave them a little tour of Atlanta and our wonderous sites the Buford Highway flea market, The Laser Show andSauced. --wow--I'll let her fill you in) --Anyways if you didn't make it by last night you'll be kicking yourself if you miss seeing this work in real life it's AMAZING!!

Go cuddle a bunny
