Growing up in England…I have no recollection of dyeing Easter eggs. I remember eating chocolate. Giving my sister a Cadbury’s chocolate egg, but not dyeing Easter eggs. So perhaps it is an American tradition. We started dyeing Easter eggs when my daughter was 4 months old. She’s now 13 and we’re still doing it.
As I talked to my husband on the phone this morning, we both realized that we have eggs but not dyeing kit. A trip to CVS was all we needed. Now we have the kit, the eggs purchased on a previous grocery trip, and a couple of chocolate bunnies.
Which brings me to “what did you give up for Lent?” I gave up chocolate…it was supposed to be everything chocolate, but became just chocolate candy. So, my children had better hang on to their Easter bunnies because come Easter Sunday I will be devouring some kind of chocolate!
