Easter Morning!

Let me start off by telling you all that Easter is my favorite holiday of the year (yes it even beats Christmas)!


Fun Facts

When taking a bite into a chocolate bunny, 76% of Americans prefer to bite off the ears first. 5% eat the feet first and 4% eat the tail first.
In the old days pretzels were associated with Easter because the twists of the pretzel were thought to resemble arms crossing in prayer.
The White House has hosted an Easter egg roll every year since 1878.
The tradition of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Persians, Egyptians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life.
And here's a good one...
In medieval times a festival of egg-throwing was held in church, during which the priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choir boys. It was then tossed from one choir boy to the next and whoever held the egg when the clock struck 12 was the winner and retained the egg.

Now for a little Easter DIY
