An excuse to eat chocolate?

I love chocolate. I think most people do. I really don’t even need an excuse to eat it or to love it. I keep a big Hershey’s Symphony bar around the house just so that I can break off a chunk now and then when I want that luscious taste in my mouth. I keep a big can of Giant store brand hot chocolate powder in my cupboard in case I want to sip it and make it last. I’ve been known to buy Chocolate “Nips” which are hard candies that keep the chocolate front and center on my tongue for a good long time, and with fewer calories.  And all our kids weddings have had extremely good, moist, homemade chocolate cakes as wedding cakes. For that matter, all of the birthdays pretty much call for our home recipe too.

All of this to say that I don’t think that kids lost out on anything by not getting chocolate in association with Easter. It’s around all the time. There’s nothing lost there. I can be an individual and not fall for the consumerism either.

They didn’t lose out on the fun of treasure hunts either. From time to time a kids’ party would include one, or someone would have a trail to follow on his or her birthday in order to find a present.  It just didn’t need to be connected to the resurrection of Christ, that’s all.

And there was a reason for that.

More to come.
