It’s Easter, the holiest holiday for Christians and, yeah, the time when kids expect candy, and lots of it. Our suggestion: Give them what they want and let them gorge on Peeps. But don’t bother to hand-curate a candy cornucopia. There are ample pre-packaged Easter baskets that have it all — toys, games, and, you’re damn right, candy. Just don’t forget the toothbrush.
