Happy Easter, everybody!
I know, I know, not everybody celebrates Easter but who knew that we use a lot of Easter terminology in our everyday lives?
Here's the list:
1. Easter Eggs
- We all know the Easter egg to be a hard-boiled egg, that is dyed and often decorated as part of the Easter celebration.
- But the most avid movie watcher may know the "Easter egg," as an inside jokes, reference or bonus in a movie. Marvel is very heavy handed with the amount of Easter eggs found in their movies.
- Made by Just Born Inc. the ubiquitous brightly colored marshmallow treats have been placed in Easter baskets since 1953.
- But in everyday lexicon, peeps or "my peeps" is slang for my peoples (family or friends.)
- Baby chickens are almost as synonymous with Easter as the bunny rabbit.
- But in everyday life the word chick is another term for a girl or a woman or girlfriend/wife.
- The Easter Bunny is never seen without his carrot, because the Vitamin A giving vegetable can be used in soups, juice and even cake. It's a great multi-use veggie!
- But 'carat' (the homophone) can be used to describe the size of diamonds and the amount of gold in jewelry.
- Freshly cut grass in between our toes let's us know that springtime has sprung and Easter is near!
- But grass is also one of the many names for the sticky-icky aka Marijuana.
Enjoy your Easter Sunday!
