Candies and Bunnies and Beans, Oh my! Saturday9


Easter Parade


Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


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?  No.  We are not.  This week has been way too busy so we are going to relax and water the Rooted Beings, as the Native Americans call them.  I remember going to church with my Mom when I was five and wearing a beautiful little yellow with white pin dot dress she made me.  There's the memory lane thing.  Do you ask about that later?  

2) Sam is not crazy about hats because she cannot stand "hat hair." Do you have a lot of hats or caps?  I love hats and and have a lot of them.  Because I am with Sam and don't like hat hair, I usually keep my hair long. 

3) This song was inspired by New York City's Easter Parade. Does your community host a similar event?  I don't think so but there used to be something at Balboa Park but not Parades.

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?  I like hard boiled and dyed eggs - the fancier the better.

5) How about Peeps? Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies?  INHO, the only thing that peeps are any good for is re-enactments of Shakespeare Plays, particularly "Romeo and Juliet", and Duels in the Micro wave.  Touche!

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?  Only if it rolls over you and smashes you into the Easter grass.  And btw, I'd like to see that thing.

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?  Everybody's got a favorite.  And forget the beans, unless they are black ones.  I like Cinnamon jelly bellies.  Yum!

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?  Neither.  Christmas is the candy overload at our house.

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated?  Well, I usually plant things and get all full of Spring Madness.  I was looking forward to buying and planting three more Buddleia bushes but we just got bad news from Governor Brown from on top of the Sierras.  We'll just stay with the two we have.  I'd say a Gin Fizz or two would probably be what it takes now.


Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

    1. whoooo! I didn't know those existed. Now to find them near enough to buy! And yes, the cinnamon jellybeans were the only other ones my sibs and I liked. We would almost fight over them. But mother usually got most of them since she had control over the whole bag before we saw it.
