In Australia – Easter Sunday, for the typical family, is extremely different to when the Easter Bunny visits in the USA. In Australia, for weeks leading up to Easter Sunday, aisles at supermarkets are taken out just for chocolate Easter Eggs, and I mean hundreds of different foil wrapped eggs in all kinds of colors, shapes and sizes!
For children, the Easter Bunny visiting is almost as exciting as Father Christmas leaving presents in December; they go hand in hand.
This year I tried to recreate an Australian Easter for my little boy in New York. In the morning when he woke there were a ton of foiled wrapped eggs at the end of his bed (carted in my suitcase from my recent trip to Melbourne). He was so excited to see them, and for just this ONE DAY of the year I let him eat chocolate for breakfast.
Happy Easter Everybody!
