The " Hoppy " Ban...

Updated on December 2, 2013

So sad..Hopping in and Out of ones' Life...

Sometimes we have to change our appearance..so we don't get " SPOTTED "...
Sometimes we have to change our appearance..so we don't get " SPOTTED "... | Source

It's Peter Rabbit for Pete's" sake...

He comes by each and every year...

For this they say we should fear ?

Just to share a Spring holiday ?...

He's a horrid creature, so they say...

He has big ears and a cotton tail...

And sometimes he even carries a pail..

Full of candy, and colorful decorated eggs...

This day is between Valentine hearts , and Green Beer kegs....

He's rarely ever seen...

And has never ever been mean...

So why are all these American States...

Having all these holiday debates ?..

I await my basket filled with a chocolate kiss..

I only hope his picture does not end up on...

The Post Office " 10 most wanted list "...

      I hadn't heard about this bunny controversy, kj. Whatever next?! Definitely time for protesting in the streets! What is wrong with people? Other countries don't seem to have all this waffling around over their cultural traditions. Well, I don't care. Just give me my chocolate. Great poem, raising awareness of a really important part of living!

      Vickiw...this was on " Nations news" and involved the northeastern states, and a few coastal southern ones...and yes why when there are so many other issues that " demand " attention, they why do they bother ?

      It's to take the public's attention away from the real issues..remember the old saying " confusing thy enemy...will guarantee a win " quote by Hitler..or was it Daffy Duck ? thanks for the visit...

      Theater girl .. Some friends and I just had that discussion yesterday...

      My G-C were talking about how a lot of their friends don't like/ or know how to play boards games...kick they can...and many other games from the past ( my daughter taught them)and how Halloween and other holidays traditions were celebrated...they asked why did it change after so many years of it " working " ? really didn't have an answer...

      thanks for your thoughts...have a great week-end..

      Theater girl.. I agree... childhood is getting shorter and shorter.. but.. . that's because society/ media is pushing it along....and even some parents are guilty of it, encouraging it by giving in to all the wants and NOT taking care of the needs....thanks for comment...

      I think Easter has become too commercialized and people are losing site of what it's about. I wonder if parents still teach their kids the religious significance of the day.

      PHILLYDREAMER....I agree much of todays' holidays have become commercialized and the religious/momentous meanings are not even explained, some just go through the motions...changes in society have eliminated much of tradition.. due to " politically correct disorder "

      Thanks for comment...
