Our Favorite Things: Easter Edition
Posted April 7, 2020
Even though the Easter Bunny may be on furlough when it comes to hopping in and out of backyards, that doesn’t mean the Brightly Creative crew isn’t going without our favorite treats or traditions. After all, we’re a creative bunch, so we’ve shifted our focus from large gatherings to the candies and traditions that make us happy.
Alison Wuebbels is used to having a big family gathering for Easter. “Holidays are really big with my family. We all get together for Easter, birthdays, 4th of July, pumpkin picking, Thanksgiving, Christmas, leaf raking (yes, that is a family holiday). And at every holiday, my Grandpa Ron and Grandma Joan always bring platters, boxes and baskets full of candy. I will be sad this year to miss the three-foot long Easter baskets they bring every year and have us split candy between us 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. I was always sure to snag the bag with the most Smarties and would sneak my Peeps into everyone else’s bags throughout the day.
My family also loves to spend our time together playing games. Whether it is Dominoes, Spades, Pictionary or Family Feud, you can always catch our family huddled around the card table ready to play. This year, we are looking into an alternative to our face-to-face time by playing Trivia via our video chat recording devices. I am still scratching my head how we will get all 32 of us on one screen, but when there is a will there’s a way!”
Jonathan Galbreath is on the Peeps train, saying, “If you say anything other than Peeps, you’re a liar.”
I also don’t mind Peeps! But my favorite has to be the Cadbury Creme Eggs. I love the creme ones, but ooooh the caramel ones are so good! I’m so glad we can at least go to the store during our stay-at-home order. I will definitely sneak a few in my basket this year.
Jasmyne Harris goes the jelly bean route. “My favorite Easter candy would have to be jelly beans! Easter traditions are the same, enjoy family time, make a big meal, relax and stuff my face again!”
Keith Seiz also manages to get a small candy fix. “I’m not a candy eater, but I will steal my kids’ Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Eggs during Easter. Sure, the peanut butter to chocolate ratio on the Eggs is a bit outlandish, but it feels right during Easter.” Shhh, don’t tell the kids!
