Jesus Monster trucks

I had to stop at Walmart to buy little bowls for the Easter eggs we will be decorating in Uki school this week. I have the Paas dyes, cups, vinegar, and fake grass but I just needed the bowls. You would not believe the crap there in the Easter aisles!! Rows and rows of toys, candy, plastic eggs, stuffed animals, dyes, baskets, totally crazy! And above all I LOVE the pre-made baskets with candy, toys, and the plastic grass already put together and shrinkwrapped. These things are HUGE, totally cheesy and tacky and have Easter related themes like, Hot Wheels Monster trucks, Bratz dolls, Football, Hippie Peace Signs, etc. What the heck does any of this crap have to do with Jesus dying on the cross and resurrecting three days later? Plastic camouflage eggs? A basketball shaped basket? Sidewalk chalk? Bubbles and jump ropes? Don't get me wrong- I don't even believe in any of this stuff, but come on, give the event SOME respect!! When did it become about egg hunts and chocolate bunnies? So sad. I'm trying to do something different this year at my parents' house where we go to celebrate. No candy! No stuffed chickadees! No musical chocolate candy eggs!! My cousin-in-law is on board, now I'm hoping the others will agree as well. I was telling said cousin-in-law that I just threw away the Valentine's Candy my kids got 2 months ago!! It never ends...

  1. Hey! As an American, it is up to you to ensure the economy keeps on its destructive pace! So buy two packs of camouflage eggs...they are kind of hard to find, once hidden.
