I, for one, am overjoyed. Warm weather, spending time out of doors without a snow shovel or layers of excess clothing, backyard gatherings, and barbeques .. all of the things that make life great. About the only thing I do not look forward to is the inevitable yard work but the way I figure it that is where the industrious young enterprenuers in my neighborhood come in. I am all for helping a young business person especially if it gets me out of cutting the grass.

And .. on top of everything else .. Easter is just around the corner. Sunday, April 1. The day that the Easter Bunny makes his rounds and brings all of those wonderful, sweet treats to all of the good little boys and girls regardless of their age.

Easter is probably my favorite Spring day. It is a family day with great fun, great food, and some very colorful, very sweet treats. You have jelly beans, Peeps (gotta have my Peeps), Marshmallow eggs, malted milk balls, Chocolate Easter Bunnies (I, for one, will be very disappointed if I do not get a Chocolate Easter Bunny. The ears are such a delicacy.), and .. to top off the list .. Colorful, hand decorated Easter Eggs.

Easter Eggs go back a lot further than the Easter celebration. Decorated Eggs have been used in many societies and religions for centuries, usually in springtime rites or at the celebration of a new year. In all cases it seems they are used as a symbol of resurrection and new life.

Have a Happy Easter, and be sure to make RESERVATIONS at our Creekside location for Easter Brunch!
