Easter is the best holiday and you can’t convince me otherwise.
Seriously underrated and overlooked by most, but if you’re a parent it should be the hero of your calendar.
Clearly it beats Christmas, which seems to pass in a split second between prepping and packing up presents. Instead Easter gives the ultimate gift: Freedom (and chocolate, obviously).
I love that shops and restaurants tend to stay open, so the long weekend is filled with meals I’m not responsible for making and lots of restorative retail therapy. No weird shopping deadlines or complex Kris Kringles to buy in advance.
PSA: The Easter long weekend can be easy, fun and relaxing, like a mini-vacay without the packing, travel time and weird sleeping arrangements.
Now Christmas is out of contention, shall we also agree Easter is the much cuter cousin of Halloween? All the costumes and sweet treats, just done better.
I’ll take a pastel fever dream of Easter bunnies and fluffy chicks over scary Halloween monsters and messy fake blood any day.
