Easter is coming and people are happy just thinking of the holiday with its celebrations of new life, springtime, and Easter baskets. The holiday is special to Christians as a reminder that Jesus died on a cross on Friday afternoon and rose from his tomb Sunday morning. Springtime is when many animals and birds have their babies and so we think of baby animals, chicks, ducklings, bunnies and more. The holiday has been associated with cute bunnies, eggs and chicks for centuries. Easter is a good time to remember loved ones. Many people give Easter gift baskets, cards and bouquets to relatives and friends during the Easter season. Cards and gift baskets are very appropriate this time of year.
While keeping in mind that not everyone celebrates Easter as a holiday, a gift just to celebrate the spirit of springtime and to let people know someone is thinking of them is always welcome. Everyone usually accepts gourmet gift baskets or small tokens of love at any time. Spring, after a long winter, is worth celebrating. Winter is cold, icy, dark and grey. Spring is full of color and sunlight with flowers and greenery budding out everywhere outdoors. Birds, animals and people all make merry when they see the first signs of the spring season.
Easter baskets help many people remember childhood and Easter egg hunts. Children find the hidden eggs and place them in brightly colored baskets. Decorative baskets for Easter have a little grassy bed like a nest inside them. The eggs, candies, gumdrops, small toys and chocolates nestle in the grassy nest. Some people like to give little stuffed bunnies, or other small, stuffed animals and birds. Gift Baskets bring a smile to the giver and the receiver. Gourmet gift baskets that are made for springtime and Easter will make people happy this April.
