Easter has always managed to be one of the most boring holidays ever! Somehow, my cliché recollections, which usually start with a TV-like generic transition, have never been about events that took place during Easter.
For that reason, I initially presumed that there was something wrong with this holiday. Why hadn’t I been feeling IT when it came to the eggs? Were bunnies that off putting?! No! The eggs and the bunnies weren’t to blame. I was!
It was hard to acknowledge that I basically enjoyed Christmas and Halloween for the presents and the candy. I mean, in all honesty, they might not be the most important aspects, but they do matter…greatly! Anyway, now that we’ve established that the capitalistic nature of the holiday is as important, I propose an Easter makeover.
Painted eggs are kind of cute, but no matter how interesting your brush strokes are, they will eventually stop captivating attention. Thus, we need to prepare a good setting for them. Sometimes, the actual gallery can be as important as the art itself. And what can be a more magical and fascinating setting than a tree?! The Christmas tree has IT! Why shouldn’t an Easter tree have IT too?! Imagine the beauty of seeing an Easter tree. Better yet, here are some lovely pictures:
This is Volker Kraft’s tree from Germany! He has started this tradition with his family, and now they are being helped by the entire community. On the last count, the tree has been laden with almost 10,000 eggs.
Are you doing anything special this Easter?! Chocolate bunnies don’t count!
