Easter is right around the corner. It’s time for all the all awkward family get togethers, the sickening amount of pastels, and excessive amounts of white chocolate. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter you most likely go home and get the candy on sale. Easter is a weird holiday without the religious background. You look for eggs from a rabbit meanwhile rabbits don’t lay eggs. Everything is pastel white chocolate and nuts and fruit. No one cares more about pastels then Easter time. There’s this odd obsession with carrots but carrots aren’t the main food. We get candy carrots. The main dish for Easter is ham. It’s just a dish completely unrelated to eggs and bunnies and carrots. Thanksgiving makes sense. Christmas is always family dishes but Easter is this weird combination of things. It’s a pastel mess.
1. Extra Break
It’s great to have another break from school. I don’t care if it’s labor day or Flag Day I’m glad I have another break.
As weird as the candy is some of it delicious: Reese’s eggs or Cadbury anything or Chocolate rabbits.
This doesn’t need an explanation
4.Meet Other Families
Most holidays are bug events like Christmas everyone knows to spend with their own family but Easter is the best holiday to go home with your friends from college or meet your S.O’s family. It’s a more relaxed holiday.
5.Room for Creativity
You get to find weird places to hide eggs for the kids in your family or paint eggs in cute ways. You can make Disney themed eggs or tie dye them.
6.It’s Less to Carry
Christmas at someone else’s house is awful because you have to bring not only the food but the gifts. Easter it’s just some food and maybe baskets but it’s all together and easier to carry. It’s not an assortment of boxes and bags and pots.

No one really rushes or stresses about Easter dinner/lunch. Thanksgiving dinner is always a busy kitchen. Easter is a very relaxed dinner with easier foods that don’t have to cook for 12 hours. Plus you have the weekend to prep unlike Thanksgiving when everyone has work and classes the Wednesday before.
8. Kids are Hilarious

Kids either hate or love the Easter bunny. Sometimes it's the funniest thing. Kids are just all over the place from the sugar but they have other kids to be entertained with. Eventually they crash from their sugar rush.
No matter what you do for Easter break enjoy your time off.
