Easter, Picnics and Cadbury Eggs

Have you bought enough candy and eggs to hide around the garden? Built an Easter basket? Well, if you have, kudos. I am still working on figuring out why a bunny would lay eggs in the first place.

Growing up, Easter used to be more about the evil treats-depriving custom of Lent. Now, it’s more about how many Cadbury chocolate eggs I manage to devour before breakfast. Hallelujah for adulthood.

To begin with, I am not so sure how it’s even possible for it to be Easter time already. I suppose there are plenty of people out there who can’t make their day go by. Web developers come to mind; DMV clerks; call centers branding agencies. They certainly have all my sympathy, and if they want to come visit and try and slow down my day, that’d be great.

Alas, Winter is behind us, Spring is finally here, and apparently Jesus is soon to resurrect.

The wonderful thing about Easter break is that it comes with all types of fun outdoor activities (weather permitting). It’s the first actual holiday of the year when you can kind of bet good money you’ll be able to spend some time outside. All hail the Easter bunny.

And while it may be just a tad too soon to flip-flop your way around New York City, this is probably the first official chance of you having an actual, proper, outdoor, on real grass, with trees around you, picnic. Cue last year’s summer clothes.

What are the staples of an epic Easter picnic in the park?

  • Real Food: none of that store-bought, last-minute, grab-n-go crap. Actual food. Like, food that’s actually been chopped and cooked by human hands and not by machines in a processing plant.

 

  • Spill-proof Packaging: it’s true, without the proper gear food can quickly go from omg-delicious-this-is-heaven to raspberry-and-chocolate-make-me-hate-the-world. You can bring napkins, but unless your num-nums are properly packaged, you’re spelling trouble.

 

  • Individual Portions: every night you clean the dinner table from crumbs, spills, and soup stains which you managed to create while sitting in a chair, surrounded by all kinds of tableware knick-knacks. What do you think is going to happen to your giant salad bowl uneasily resting on uneven, soft grass? Package everything in individual portions and be forever happy.

 

  • Ester Eggs: dyed, plastic, wooden or fabricated by woodland fairies – be however they may, you can never have too many Easter eggs. Mostly because they are too much fun to find, and too delicious to eat (the contents obviously, not the actual eggs). And don’t try to short-change your youngsters: real chocolate with real corn syrup is what this holiday is all about.

Then again, why go through all the trouble? Order an epic Easter picnic from Upicnic and have everything your heart desires delivered wherever you want. Think it’s too easy? Well, I’ve heard picnics are supposed to be.

Happy Easter, you crazies!
