Funniest Easter Memory


While I have many, many excellent memories of Easter,
one stands out more in my memory......



..... my brothers and sisters and I are walking the gruelling 10 miles to school,
first day after the Easter break....
.....we have just come down from a sugar high weekend filled with Easter candy and chocolate....



.....and for those of you who remember, 
chocolate and sweets, in general, were not massed made as they are today......
....Mom would buy them from Woolworths, Woolco or Eatons...
.....so it was a REAL treat Easter morning to hunt for what the bunny hid for you....




 ....anyway, back to my exhausting 20 mile hike to school....on foot.....
....and as usual I am trailing behind my siblings.....
...looking at anything and everything of interest.....
....when I happened to look up at a house......


....sitting inside on the window ledge was a large boxed Easter chocolate bunny....
.....MELTED!!...

.....obviously the Bunny hid it and forgot about it!!.....
....little Diane at the tender age of 10 thought it was a colossal waste....
....well maybe not the word colossal, because I don't think I know the word at the time.....
....but you get the idea!

It broke my heart....but at the same time I thought it was the funniest thing I ever saw!
....I tried to get my bros and sisters to come back to have a look, but because they were like a 1000 miles ahead of me, they would not....

So it was my funny memory and mine alone!




So there you have it, my stroll down Easter memory lane.

Diane

What's your best memory??

  1. I think it would be a colossal waste too, even at 10! My grammie always gave us a Laura Secord egg in the yellow box with excelsior in it every Easter. I love those eggs even now with the 'yolk' in the center but I don't think they taste the same. We got those sugared coloured eggs and wrapped Oh Henry or marshmallow eggs in our baskets which were woven and bright coloured. Those are my Easter memories. I hope you have a very blessed Easter Diane.

  2. I don't know why but I wasn't interested in the choclate at Easter when I was a kid. My mum used to give me Abba records instead.

    But don't worry I am quite normal now. I love chocolate. But I must say I still love Abba too.
    Have a great week and thanks for visiting.
    Best Carolyn

  3. My Easter memory begins on Easter morning with my parents when I lived with them... my mom would always have a great breakfast and then for the noon time meal, she would bake a ham. At every place setting for this special meal was a Chocolate Rabbit. My sister Kathy would always have a white one. We would have our special Bunny then enjoy a meal on Easter and end that day watching Ben Hur... what great memeories..I hope my children have the same!

  5. Such a cute story. At first I thought you were going to say that you were traumatized for life at the site of a droopy, dripping ,melted bunny face! So glad it was a funny memory instead:) Pretty pics, by the way!
