Easter Debates

I could have written a "Martha Stewart" post about Easter, with cute pictures of homemade bunny cupcakes, Pinterest-worthy crafts and whimsical scavenger hunts.

But alas, I tend to fall more into the Pinterest-fail kind of group. Sure, my kids will be doing a chocolate egg hunt on Sunday morning, and I may cut out a few bunny ears, but as long as I get a large coffee first.

 I'd like to take credit for this, but this adorable craft was actually created by my daughter's daycare provider

Instead, Kids in the Capital is opening up the floor to you, our lovely readers. We want you to tell us all about your Easter traditions:

1) Treats vs. no treats: is chocolate banned from your house? Are you a dentist who gives tooth brushes on holidays? Or will I find your kids comatose in the corner, with chocolate egg wrappers strewn all over the floor?

2) Outside or inside: Do you enjoy the mess and muck of a Spring hunt outside? Or is the dog poop keeping you indoors?

3) Church or no Church: is Sunday morning reserved for celebrations in your family's church? Or is Easter more about the randy bunnies (a.k.a the festival of fertility) than the cross?

4) Gifts or no gifts: Are your children showered with new clothes and toys on Easter, or are they given boxes to play with?

5) How much: do you spend hundreds of dollars on gifts, or are you frantically running through Dollarama the Thursday before Good Friday?

Weigh in, dear readers - we want to hear from you!
