I can actually answer this one. No.

 

And my chickens already lay blue and green eggs, so ... meh.

 

Ooh, Araucana?

 

(One of the organic farms near here sells mixed color shell eggs, mostly white and brown, but for a while they had a small but noticeable percentage of pale turquoise green, I would call it.)

Yup. Not show-quality, but my girls lay some of the prettiest eggs. I get brown speckled eggs from the Marans.

Question, April 2: Would either of these have been good prank Questions for yesterday: “Do you agree with the Pope’s Decision to cancel Easter?” “Was the Easter Bunny justified in Excommunicating the Pope for banning April Fools Day?”

 

I would have gone with the latter, given the Pope's smiling nature, I can see him loving a good joke.  The irony would be wonderful.

Question for, April 3: Did you see any bizarrely colorized Easter Bunnies or other strange Easter holiday decor this year?

 

Yes.  Peep stuffed animals that were as tall as my daughter.  I was horrified.

 I'd completely forgotten it was Easter until I tried to go do some shopping late Sunday afternoon and the entire world was closed.

 

 

What, exactly, has prompted the observance of Easter in the last few years?  It went from a holiday that was largely ignored by the secular world to one that shuts things down inconveniently like they're Chick Fil-A and crowds the roadways for sunrise services when you're trying to get home in the wee hours.  This was the one holiday I was super-excited to be done with when I stopped being Catholic 20-odd years ago, and here it is bothering me again. :lol:

This may have been the reason for both questions:

Currently no, just big ol' Kinder Surprise eggs.

I saw Bunnies created in the various pastel colors normally reserved to plastic Easter eggs. I don’t know if they were chocolate treats or plastic decor things. And I saw Rabbits covered in faux fur that would  normally adorn felines. Like ocelots, or maybe it was supposed to be Cheetah.

Bizarrely, no.  Even the lady in the shopping mall giving out Easter candy was dressed in the mall uniform instead of dressing up like an Easter Bunny.

Nope, in fact saw almost no Easter decorations at all.

Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

 

Nope, wasn't fooled but man some companies had some absolutely epic April Fool's products.  Sadly I can't quite comment on some of them due to their more adult nature, but one company did a brick and fidget spinner this year as their April Fool's...

Nope. I can't recall seeing or making any colored Easter Eggs in a very long time.
