Mary Rea | Family Easter tradition

Never, ever, have our boys believed in the Easter bunny. They grew up country kids and saw a lot of rabbits. There was no way such a small four-legged creature could carry around a large basket, let alone hide eggs. But they still liked to have an Easter egg hunt.
