I'm no Easter grinch, but put down that chocolate egg until Sunday

3 0 0

One of the traditions in our newsroom is the man named after a pope tut-tutting at people eating chocolate eggs before Easter Sunday.

It came up this week at the end of an egg hunt in the office, in which I won the monster bunny. All those years poring over Where's Wally finally paid off.

That bunny will sit uneaten until Sunday, at least. As it should, at least in this not-very-good Catholic's opinion.

Easter eggs are supposed to represent new life, and the resurrection. That's kinda the whole idea. C'mon guys, surely we can hold on just a few more days?

Not before Eater Sunday.

A similar theory holds for hot cross buns. In my book the standard bun is fine........
