Whole Black Peppercorns
and I could usually follow some muddy

dirt shaped like paws
to the back door.

Fun Facts

The History Channel reviews several aspects of Easter. Why it is celebrated on Sundays, why we hunt eggs, and why everything is centered around a bunny.

Quick facts about Easter from IBTimes:

  • After Halloween, Easter is the second top-selling confectionery holiday followed by Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
  • Hot cross buns were among the earliest Easter treats, made by European monks and given to the poor during Lent.
  • Among the sweet items, the red jellybean is an all time favorite with children.
  • The largest Easter Egg ever made was just over 25 feet in height, weighing up to 8,968 lbs and was made of chocolate and marshmallow, entering the Guinness Book of World Records.
