    Easter... a time when a single chocolate egg used to be enough but nowadays, if you don't get a push bike, at least 20 eggs and £30 in a card, it's just not worth it!

    We have new neighbours, opposite us, he is an ex Army major and his wife is German. Apparently Easter is a big thing in Germany. She made presents for all the neighbours and left them outside each house with a Happy Easter message and put Easter eggs in the trees in the road for local kids to collect, full sized ones in boxes!

    Think she will be on her own with this one!

    Don't think they send. You can however change the name in a tag so that it

    Who the hell gets that much for Easter. I spent about $15 total per kid and I thought I was overdoing it.

    Sometimes I hate that the forum remembers when you leave a thread and come back. I had started replying to something a while back and didn't finish... So now when I posted left that fragment.

    April is a stupid time to have Easter. If you do an egg hunt the chocolate in the eggs is always melted by the time the kids find them.

    Easter should really be held Mid February thru early March. Warm enough outside to enjoy being outside but not too hot to melt the chocolate.

    Plus, it's usually prettier out then because that's when all the early spring flowers are at their peak. April is a bit of a dead zone when the spring flowers are mostly gone and the summer flowering ones haven't started yet.

    It has to be this time of year as the supermarkets need the boost after Xmas and before the BBQ season starts

    May day in a couple of weeks. They could always revive the centuries old tradition of spending hundreds of quid buying stupid presents for people for May day. Perhaps start selling chocolate may poles.

    I thought yesterday was Monday because I was at work and had to pick the kids up from extra curricular crap after work. <ok>

    / Wish Easter Monday was a thing here. For a religious country they don't take religious holidays seriously.
