Easter always brings surprises

Every year around this time, my dad starts getting nutty about Easter. I'm not sure what it is, as we never were a particularly religious family (and I don't really care for the ham even if you just boil it down to a nice family dinner), but there's something about the chickies and bunnies that makes my dad go Hallmark-wild.

One year he sent a small, white Easter Tree with little egg ornaments. It fits right in with the Buddhas, Day of the Dead figures, African mudcloths and tribal masks we have around the house.

Right.

This year we not only got visited by the Easter bunny—we GOT the Easter bunny. Actually he is a Hallmark Rockin' Rabbit who sings—his mouth actually moves—to the tune of Rockin' Robin ("I bring a lot of goodies and I hide them on the lawn, but you better hurry up before the candy's all gone....").

The chickie cheeps on cue.

It's thoughtful and everything? But you know it's not a bag of Dove Promises, if you get my drift. There wasn't even a single chocolate-covered Michigan dried cherry in the box.
