Well, it actually has to do, as so much in life, with drinking. We drink on Saturday night, and we’re hungover on Sunday, so you have to come up with something to get rid of the kids on Sunday, so that you can get some extra sleep.
First of all, let them start looking for eggs with their baskets. That’s atleast of 2 extra hours of sleep. Once they start making noise again, you go down, and hide plastic eggs with money in them. That’ll keep them looking for the next 6 hours. That’s 8 hours of additional hangover sleep.
And that’s the grownup reason for easter.
