What’s not to love about Easter? The family time? The food? The Easter egg hunts and big ol’ baskets of chocolate? I’m a big fan of it all. But perhaps my favorite Easter pastime is watching the cute little kiddies run around in their Sunday best, looking like they were plucked directly from the pages of the JC Penny catalogue. And even better than that are the epic photos when kids are taken to the mall for the first (okay, or seventh) time to see the Easter Bunny. I remember when I was that age, and Easter was my JAM. So let’s reminisce, shall we?

Just as all things Easter are starting to show up in stores, Dunkin’ Donuts is presenting us with a gift from above: Peeps donuts. As the treats roll into stores in the next week, you, too, can devour the sugary, tooth-aching goodness that is a neon marshmallow Peep planted atop America’s favorite junk food item. The donuts are flower-shaped and come in pink or green, with a little Peep awkwardly chillin’ at a strange angle in the center. Keep reading »
The Obamas dressed up in their Sunday best to attend an Easter church service in DC, and as usual, I’m totally in awe of this gorgeous family. Sasha and Malia looked beautiful (and age-appropriate) in their colorful Easter dresses, while the divine Mrs. O opted for a Prabal Gurung dress she’s worn a couple times before. Well played, Obama family! [Photo: Getty]
I was too busy hosting brunch and raiding my kids’ Easter baskets to notice what yesterday’s Google doodle was, but apparently it was INCREDIBLY controversial. The anti-religious leftists in Mountain View had the gall to not only choose a doodle that had nothing to do with colorful eggs, chocolate bunnies, or Jesus H. Christ himself — they honored a big old lefty instead by celebrating would have been the 86th birthday of Latino civil rights leader Cesar Chávez.
Clearly this was a political statement from those sneaky liberals. Why else celebrate the lesser-known birthday of a progressive icon when they could be reminding us all that it was EASTER?
Unless … unless they’re a non-religious organization that isn’t held to a Christian agenda and they’re known for focusing on historical events that educate, rather than consistently pointing out something that everyone’s already aware of? Read more…
If the Easter Bunny never made it to you house yesterday, that’s because he was trapped underneath Mariah Carey in her backyard while she sat on him, drinking some champs. “Happy Easter dahhlings…I finally caught the Easter bunny,” she tweeted. We’d expect nothing less from you, Mimi. [Twitter]
Easter marks the beginning of Spring, and there by the infamous Spring Fling season. While it may seem blasphemous, you can bag a man at church, if you’re subtle. Old peeps just love matchmaking! And what better place to meet a nice guy than in church? Here’s how you can turn Easter in to a real man-feast! Keep reading »
I haven’t decorated eggs for the past few Easters, but this tutorial for marbled eggs looks so fun, and the results are so gorgeous, that I might have to give it a shot this year. It’s also a great way to use up some of the hundreds of mostly-empty bottles of nail polish that are currently taking over my bathroom cabinets. [Henry Happened]
Easter has almost arrived! Here’s a good reason to forgo church, drunk brunch or whatever happens to be your usual Easter Sunday tradition — hunting for Ryan Gosling! Or, more specifically, hunting for plastic Easter eggs with Gosling’s visage inside them, thousands of which are hidden in cities across the country. It’s called Gosling Easter and of course I plan on participating. But the best part about going on this hunt in New York this year? The Gos is actually in town right now promoting “The Place Beyond The Pines,” and he lives in my neighborhood, so if I’m lucky, maybe I’ll find the real man. (Or end up in jail for stalking but whatever.) [Gosling Easter via Gothamist]
