Saturday 9: Easter Parade

 
 
Saturday 9: Easter Parade ("In Your Easter Bonnet") (1933)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about a special Easter hat to be worn with your "Sunday best." Will you be getting dressed up this weekend? I didn't buy anything new, but I will dress up a little for church.

2) Sam is not crazy about hats because she cannot stand "hat hair." Do you have a lot of hats or caps?
I don't have any hats...so not a hat person.

I love LOVE, LOVE Shabby Blogs and their free buttons, backgrounds, etc.  Awesome!
 
3) This song was inspired by New York City's Easter Parade. Does your community host a similar event? No Easter Parade, but our church does do a big Easter Egg Hunt for the kids every year.

4) On April 6, President Obama and Michelle will host lucky children for the 137th White House Easter Egg Roll. Which are your favorite eggs: colored hard-boiled eggs, chocolate marshmallow eggs, or plastic eggs with coins inside? Chocolate Marshmellow Eggs

5) How about Peeps? Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies? Either is fine, but these white chocolate dipped Peeps are the best! [recipe HERE

6) The biggest chocolate Easter egg was made in Italy, measured 34 feet tall and weighed a staggering 15,000 lbs. Do you thinks it's possible to have too much chocolate? Yes, I am really not a big chocolate fan. I like it, but could live without it.

7) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. A 2013 poll tells us that red is by far the favorite jelly bean color, with yellow a distant second. Do you have a preference? Orange!

8) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween? Easter
 
9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated? A vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
