Muffins & More Recipes for a Beautiful Mother’s Day Brunch

Fun Easter Basket Alternatives

This Easter, why not try something different and fun for your Easter baskets? According to the National Confectioners Association, 77% of Americans participate in giving Easter baskets each year.

The origin of modern day Easter traditions, such as the Easter basket, are believed to have been introduced to America by German immigrants who moved with their stories of a bunny that delivered eggs. As is the case with any holiday, families can choose if they want to go lavishly over-the-top, or stick with practicality. Here at Daily Mom, we prefer practical basket goodies that we know will be loved and appreciated long beyond the egg hunt. In a world of STUFF, why not think of a way to turn our NEEDS into WANTS.

The Easter basket is the perfect start to practical gift giving, while preserving the time honored traditions that accompany the Easter holiday. Whatever your preference, lavish or low key, check out these ideas on making this Easter unique and fun.

Owning a Bunny Beyond Easter

Every spring when Easter rolls around, many families decide to surprise their children with more than some chocolate and trinkets in their Easter baskets. A lot of children will wake up on Easter morning to find their very own, real life Easter bunny as a gift. Each year a lot of rabbits are purchased as Easter gifts and sadly, those rabbits are soon forgotten. It is estimated that 80 percent of bunnies purchased on Easter are abandoned. This is incredibly sad. Bringing a bunny into your family isn’t something to take lightly. Bunnies are not just fun for Easter. They require a big commitment and a lot of care. If you take on rabbit ownership with the responsibility it requires, a rabbit can be an amazing new furry family member.

Before you stop by the pet store on Easter weekend, here’s what you need to know about owning a bunny beyond Easter.

Celebrating St. Patricks Day with Irish Cooking

Half the fun of holidays is how you celebrate them together as a family. St. Patrick’s Day is a great holiday that doesn’t have a set agenda you have to follow with how the day is celebrated. From dressing in green to decking the house out with shamrocks, there is no wrong way to celebrate the Feast of St. Patrick.

St. Patrick was a fifth-century missionary in Ireland who for most of his life, worked to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity. Most stories about the day claim Patrick was responsible for driving the snakes from Ireland when in fact Ireland never had a snake problem – the snakes were allegory for the druid worshiping celts. Green clothing, or the wearing of the green, stems from how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish in 1727. Images of the Saint are often depicted with a cross in one hand, and shamrocks in the other.

A History Lesson: 5 Modern Ideas for teaching our Children about President’s Day

President’s Day, or the 3rd Monday in February, has been set aside as a national holiday for most all of our lives. This day, meant to celebrate the birth, lives, and sacrifices of the incredible men who have led this great country, has turned into nothing more than a commercialized shopping day with sales on everything from cars to home appliances. Like many American holidays lost to sales and school closures, gone is the meaning of the day. It is unlikely the majority of Americans can even tell you what this day is about, much less why or when it was contrived.
