Easter is coming in a couple of weeks. Easter is the time of year where we have the annual celebration when God sent His only begotten bunny to die on the cross for our sins. But not before spreading a bunch of multicolored eggs around for the children to pick up.
Unless you're in San Antonio, then it's all about the cascarones (or confetti eggs for you non-San Antonians). Then you have to make sure your kids do not have any hidden or else this happens.
Yeah, I'm having the TSA checking the kids before they get in the van this Easter.
I kid about the God sending the bunny thing. My family and I celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave. The kids understand the Easter Bunny is make believe even though they still receive a basket or bucket of candy or simple toys, but they understand the gifts are from their parents.
I was tapped to promote Mattel's [ facebook / twitter ] "Save the Chocolate Bunny". The campaign is promoting "toys instead of chocolate" to encourage creative, healthy, sugar-free play for kids!
You can visit the Save the Chocolate Bunny website, where you'll find more giveaways and coupons.
They've even made a couple of videos to promote the campaign which you can view below. The first is a quick animated short and the second are a bunch of celebrities begging us to forgo the genocide of the chocolate bunny.
In the widget below, you will have different ways you can be entered into the contest. The more times you enter, the better your chances. The contest ends on 03-28-2013. The official time is on the countdown timer below. Mattel is giving away eleven prize packs (again which are shown below). So enter as many times as you like, it would be cool if one of my readers would win the big cascarone.
Another giveaway is also at the bottom of this post.
