It’s almost springtime, and I couldn’t be happier. Spring is my absolute favorite time of year, because the best parts of the year are all ahead. From the warming weather of spring, then summer, and then the best holidays of the year in the autumn / early winter, Springtime is the beginning of the best the year has to offer.
I was born in March, three days after the start of spring. My grandfather brought fresh strawberries to the hospital on the day I was born. So to me, spring means strawberries (and strawberry shortcake!), tulips and peonies blooming, and of course Easter time.
It also means you can finally pull out cute dresses and skirts, which as most of you know, I live to wear. As we start thinking about spring I naturally get excited for Easter, as it’s a holiday my kids (and I) just love (since you know I am really just a big kid, right?).
But I have always wondered how the tradition of searching for Easter eggs started.
Well now you can find out, on the new Ice Age movie called The Great Egg-scapade. Since I am a March baby, I have always loved the spring. In this hilarious tale, our old friend Sid takes a job as an egg nanny. However, his enemy has other plans, and adventures ensue.
Their shenanigans lead to the first ever egg hunt and the creation of many popular Easter traditions.
The new Ice Age: The Great Egg-scapade movie comes to DVD on March 7. Make sure to check it out to get your family and kids in the Easter spirit, and then you can answer the question of just how Easter egg hunts started!
