Hershey’s Easter Bunny Trail: Easter Traditions That Make Memories

Easter is coming and it is time to get out the Easter baskets and decorations and get ready for the big day! I love the different holidays through out the year, and Easter is one that I love to prepare for. When I think about Easter there are many things that come to mind. Like, heading to church in your Easter clothing, looking your absolute best and celebrating the resurrection of Christ. I can remember the night before Easter each year, boiling then coloring our eggs, so that we could put them out for the Easter Bunny to hide for us that night when he came to visit. I loved sitting at the table with my mom and sister, and getting all of our favorite colors out and ready to dip and dye the eggs in. We would draw decorations on the eggs, then control the color, like if we left the eggs in for a good amount of time we would get dark colors, or if we took them out sooner than others we could get pastels and lighter colors. It was something that we would look forward to doing the entire day before Easter. I also think back on getting up on Easter morning to find a basket filled with goodies and candy, then once my parents were up, gearing up for a Easter egg hunt. Then after the hunt we would all meet up with family and friends and have a huge Easter brunch, which was always a wonderful way to celebrate each year. Now that I have kids, I try to keep those traditions alive, so that not only am I passing along traditions that I grew up with, but I am also creating memories that my kids will have that will last a lifetime, just like the memories that my parents created with me! I love being able to dye the eggs with my kids, then after they go to sleep, setting up their Easter baskets and hiding the eggs that they worked so hard at decorating for them to find the next day. One thing that I remember being in my basket each year, and that we put in our kids baskets each year is chocolate and jelly beans. We loved getting Hershey's chocolates each year and one that I looked forward to getting was those Cadbury Eggs, that were so delicious and something that we only got once a year. On top of that we also got a great variety of other Hershey's candies that we enjoyed each year as well, and that is a tradition that we also keep going for our kids. So this year, when you are gearing up for Easter, dont forget the Hershey's chocolates and prepare to make memories that last!

I didn't realize until a couple years ago that when I grew up in Michigan, everyone I knew hid the Easter baskets. We would get up and search for our baskets Easter morning. When I moved South, nobody heard of that, just hiding the eggs.

We had the little chocolate eggs even when the Easter Bunny came to see me as a child.
