21 Kids Who Will Never Enjoy Easter Again

It’s that time of year when the friendly Easter Bunny hops down the rabbit trail, bringing Easter eggs and chocolate treats to boys and girls everywhere.

But hopefully it’s not one of these Easter Bunnies!

Just like Santa, every kid loves to get their picture taken with a friendly, smiling bunny holding a big basket of eggs, but not every mall can deliver the same happy figure we recognize from our greeting cards.

Instead, some children are stuck posing with what we can only guess are the real Easter Bunny’s strange cousins, and you can tell from their expressions that they’re a little disappointed.

1. They say dogs can sense when something is wrong…

2. Why so serious?

3. This bunny looks like he brings eggs filled with brussel sprouts

4. I’m as confused as she is

5. She’s so happy to meet this friendly alien

6. I think his lashes need a trim

7. It was a simpler time…

8. Wait a minute…do Easter Bunnies wear tennis shoes?

9. Her expression says it all!

10. His eyes are as big as that baby’s head!

11. Great mustache, everything else needs some work

12. Don’t send this photo to grandma, it will just freak her out

13. Just keep smiling….

14. I think this bunny needs to go lie down…

15. The suits have really improved over the years!

16. The mask needs a little work, I think!

17. Nope!

18. My, what a big head you have!

19. Who thought this was okay?

20. Say cheese!

21. “Very funny mom, now where’s the real Easter Bunny?”

Finding out you are pregnant is probably one of the most exciting moments in your life. Finding out whether you’re having a boy or a girl is just that extra special cherry on top.

These Gender Reveal Cupcakes are the cutest way to find out something so important to you and your partner – also the most delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Food coloring

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Blue & Pink gel food coloring

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to the standing mixer and start it slowly mixing.

Add in the butter to the mixer while it blends.

In a separate bowl, mix together your milk, eggs, vanilla a little bit before adding it to the cake mix.

Once it is all blended, separate out about 1/3 – 1/2 of the batter into a separate bowl and add a few drops of food coloring to make it the color of the gender.

Pour the batter into a 13 x 9 baking pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

When it is done and cooled, use a small heart cookie cutter to cut out little hearts from your cake.

Fill half of your cupcake up with batter and add in the little hearts to the center, topping with more of the white batter.

Bake for 14-18 minutes.

While it bakes, prepare your icing by mixing the cream cheese in a bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the butter gradually until smooth and then add the powdered sugar and vanilla until combined.

Use a skewer to put a bead of food coloring gel along each side of the icing bag, one side pink and the other blue.

Fill up the bag with the cream cheese icing and then the gel will mix into a swirl pattern as you circle your cupcakes.

Whether you know the gender of the baby and are surprising your family with it, or you want to help out a friend who gave you the results and the task of letting everyone know, this is the perfect way to let everyone know the happy news!

Want To Try This Designer Easter Egg? You Probably Can’t Afford It

When Easter comes around, most of us are happy to settle for a few Cadbury cream eggs, or some generic chocolate eggs from the corner store. But if you want to make your holiday extra special this year, we have just the thing.

Bulgari, the Italian company known for their fine jewelry and accessories, has branched out in Japan with a luxury chocolate shop called Bulgari Il Cioccolato.

Japan isn’t known for celebrating Easter, but when they try something they give it 110{49382ccf8aa3307257579caf6f867159d328eca730a0976815a1bacefc5bc6ee}, which explains how they came up with this glamorous $55 Easter Egg.

Rocket News

Called the Uovo di Pasqua (which just means Easter Egg) it’s an extra-large egg made from bitter dark chocolate topped with gold leaf.

Unfortunately there were only 50 for sale at the store’s one location in Tokyo, so you’ve probably missed your chance to try it. But reviewers say that the tasty dark chocolate was definitely worth the ridiculous price.

If you still need some retail therapy this Easter, this isn’t the world’s most valuable Easter egg. In fact, it’s not even close.

Aside from a diamond-coated egg worth more than a million dollars, there’s also the enormous $1,200 Godiva Atelier Egg, guaranteed to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.

Maybe we’ll just skip the chocolate this year.

Ellen Sends Her Producer Through A Haunted House And He Absolutely Hates It

Every show needs a producer to keep it all running. Producers are there to make sure everything goes well during a taping or live performance, and that’s especially true on a talk show. For Ellen DeGeneres, that person is Andy Lassner.

Lassner has been with the show since its inception as the executive producer, but he does a little more than your average producer would. Most of the time, off-screen staff stay off-screen. But over the years, Ellen has included Andy in many of her sketches and bits.

Andy is a funny, often reluctant, good sport when it comes to all the schemes Ellen thinks up. Well…almost all of them. You see, Andy doesn’t like to be scared. He doesn’t like surprises. He just wants to be left alone. But Ellen won’t let that happen. Every year, she sends Andy and a celebrity to a haunted house and films their reaction. It never disappoints.

This year, Ellen sent Andy to a haunted house with American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson. The result is exactly what you would expect!

Andy and Sarah Paulson went to the American Horror Story maze at Universal Studios. To say Andy was terrified is the understatement of the century! He figured Paulson would be fine, since the house is based off her show.

“You’re going to take the lead!” Lassner told her.

“No. No I’m not,” she replied.

“I need you be stronger,” Lassner says.

How The Duggars Celebrate Christmas, With One Glaring Omission

Too often, Christmas becomes about the gifts instead of the traditions. We all get so wrapped up in the material aspects of the holiday, we forget about the religious meaning.

The Duggar family does not have this issues, however. While they often face criticism for their strict religious beliefs, their Christmas celebrations are something to be admired.

As would be expected, the Duggars focus on the religious aspects of Christmas. They hang banners around the house that says “Happy Birthday, Jesus”, “Christ Is Born!” and “Joy To The World!” They also sing Happy Birthday to Jesus on Christmas Day, which is a tradition that must be fun with so many young kids around.

Michelle Duggar also uses JOY as an acronym during the holiday season, which stands for “Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last.”

Jim Bob Duggar also gathers the family around and reads the story of Christ’s birth from the scriptures. The house is always well-decorated, with nativity scenes being spotted all over during their Christmas tour video.

There’s no Santa Claus in the Duggar household, as they don’t want to take away from the birth of Christ as the reason for the season.

Buying gifts for a family of five can be hard enough, so a family of 21+ sounds impossible. That’s why the Duggars have devised a system of gift-giving that makes things easier on everyone. At Thanksgiving dinner, the family picks names in a Secret Santa-style gift exchange. Younger siblings are matched with younger siblings, while older siblings are matched with older siblings. Jim Bob and Michelle buy gifts for each child and each other.

In addition to their special gift, each child also gets a personalized gift bag including Pringles, beef jerky, and a jar of pickles.

“Almost all of us like pickles, but each one likes a different kind,” Michelle Duggar said. “Same with the Pringles and the beef jerky. Christmas is the one time of year when every child gets their favorite flavor of each treat.”

In addition to giving each other gifts, the family also puts together care packages for those less fortunate. Each basket contains:

  • fruits
  • mugs
  • candy
  • tissues
  • Vitamin C packets
  • a Bible

They also bake for members of the community, like the fire and police departments, or anyone else who has had a “rough year.”

But amidst all their Christmas decor, two things are noticeably gone. One is not that big of a deal…but the other means there could be trouble in the family.

Though their halls may seem decked, there’s one thing the Duggars don’t have: a Christmas tree. They have a small, fake tree that they use as a symbol, but other than that they think the tree takes away from the religious aspects of Christmas. Although, that wasn’t always the case.

“When we were growing up there was the big tree and all that and we knocked it over several times,” Josh shared many years ago.

After the news of his cheating, prostitution, and molestation scandals all broke at once, Josh Duggar has been persona non grata at Duggar family Christmases. After his scandals, Josh checked himself into rehab, with the family issuing the following statement:

“Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything.”

According to sources connected with TLC, however, God cannot bring you through Christmas with your disgraced son.

Twitter

“Jinger was playing piano, kids were running around with toys,” the source said. “It was a normal Christmas just without Josh there. It didn’t feel like an elephant was in the room, Josh has been away for so long, it’s just become normal to have him gone. If some of the family went to see him, that is definitely not something everyone in the family knew.”

We all miss looking through the catalog, but finally Sears has given us some good news. The Wish Book is back, but it’s going to look a little bit different…

Sears has reinvented the Wish Book for 2017, so we can all start making our Christmas lists now! The new Wish Book has been released in an online version and can also be accessed through the Sears app.

The John Lewis Christmas Ad Is Finally Here And It’s Even Better Than Last Year

You may think that it is too early, I mean, it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but for fans of Christmas advertisement campaigns, it is already the most wonderful time of the year.

One of the most anticipated holiday-themed ads has finally released and it was definitely worth waiting an entire year for.

Department store chain John Lewis is honoring its tradition of releasing an emotion-driven annual christmas advert and this year is no different.  

John Lewis

A few weeks ago, a source told Ok! Magazine that this year’s ad will be nothing like rest.

“This year the John Lewis advert will revolve around a big cuddly monster,” explained the source. “If you can imagine a cross between the Gruffalo and a huge, cute teddy bear, that’s the angle they’ve gone for. Filming for the advert wrapped a couple of months ago but they’ve been doing a lot of post production to get the special effects just right.

“Families are going to love the finished product, it’s a really emotional advert with a lovely ending.”

Well, they were telling the truth.

Digital Spy

The U.K-based company premiered their much-awaited advert this week and it’ll have you reaching for the tissues because the happy tears will be streaming down your face.

John Lewis’s latest campaign features a giant imaginary monster called Moz, who lives underneath the bed of a young boy.

The ad tells the story of the boy’s friendship with the monster under his bed, set to a cover of “Golden Slumbers” by The Beatles.

Chronicle Live

The ad is directed by the Oscar-winning Michel Gondry, and he had some big shoes to fill.

“When I told my ex-girlfriend I was doing the next John Lewis Christmas film she said, ‘You have big shoes to fill, this John Lewis commercial must make people cry, don’t forget’,” explained Gondry. “Last week I showed it to her and she cried. Phew.”

Gondry succeeded in warming plenty more hearts and making even more people cry.

However, not everyone is on board with the ad and its message.

Even former America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan weighed in on the matter.

You can watch the ad for yourself and be the judge:

Starbucks Employee Leaked This Year’s Holiday Cups And They Look Very Different

It isn’t even Halloween yet, but the most wonderful time of the year is only ten Fridays away and Starbucks is already getting everyone excited.

Every year since 1997, the coffee-chain unveils limited-edition cups just in time for the holidays to celebrate the spirit of the season.

E! Online

Over the years, Starbucks’ red cups helped spread cheer by featuring festive art and joyful quotes. However, more recently, the company drifted away from the iconic design-heavy cups to a more minimalist look.

Fortune

A lot of customers were upset because the plain cups lacked the decor that everyone waits all year long to see. Starbucks took this feedback, and last year they unveiled 13 cups with Christmas-esque designs created by customers from all over the world.

Starbucks

Now, the company may once again be trying something new with their holiday cups. Although Starbucks hasn’t made an official announcement yet, an employee and Reddit user DarthSpoopy shared a photo of what appears to be this year’s festive cups, and they’re not red!

Ready to see what they look like?

DarthSpoopy posted the photo of a stack of cups that are allegedly the short cup designs for the 2017 holiday season.

“Just got it in our order. Holiday short cup design!??” the caption read.

Check it out:

DarthSpoopy/Reddit

Of course, the first thing that sticks out is that unlike the past cups, the red, black and green decor are on a white background instead of red.

There’s definitely no way Starbucks can receive backlash for the the decor because it doesn’t get any more festive than Christmas trees, wrapped presents, stars and snowflakes. Even so, we won’t hold our breath.

There’s also a chance that the taller cups could feature different motifs than the one seen here. After all, the coffee retailer offered 13 options last year.

There’s no official confirmation of these designs or when the cups will be available, but based on previous launch dates, it’ll likely occur in mid-November.

What do you think of this design?

Cops Forced Into Being Grinches When Man’s Christmas Spirit Becomes Dangerous

Anyone who’s ever done their best to go every extra mile possible when it comes to setting up for the holidays, knows just how close we can be to going from festive and cheerful, to inches away from pulling a Clark Griswold and absolutely losing it.

The holidays can be an incredibly stressful time for tons of reasons. There’s gift shopping to be done, decorations to put up, family members to coordinate seeing (good freaking luck if they don’t all live in the same area), and most of call, needing to pick out the perfect Christmas tree.

As much as we all love seeing the Peanuts gang realize that their tiny little decrepit tree really isn’t all that bad, we’re definitely a lot more picky when it comes to finding that perfect cone-shaped fir to sit in the corner of our living rooms. Whether you’re buying them from a lot or cutting one down yourself, it can be something of a complicated process, one full of tough decisions.

As such, it’s probably not surprising that when a man from Sudbury, Massachusetts found his perfect tree, he wasn’t going to let anything stop him from getting it home; not even the fact that it was bigger than his freaking car…

Local police responded with a mix of shock and amusement upon spotting a man driving a vehicle with an immensely large tree that almost encompassed his entire vehicle driving down the street.

“Sudbury PD would like to remind you to transport your Holiday trees responsibly,” the caption read. “One of our officers stopped this vehicle on Route 20 today!”

While the police force is taking this seriously, their Facebook audience are not without a sense of humor either.

“Must be Chevy Chase,” meaning we’re not the only ones who instantly think of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation when we see something like this.

Another asked, “Clark Griswold in Sudbury?”

Please be sure to stay safe during the holidays. Shared does not want any of you to get hurt or hurt someone else over a Christmas tree.

Toddler’s Santa Picture Looks Normal, Until Mom Points Out His Hands

If you’re a parent or grandparent who loves Christmas, chances are one of the things you get the most excited about is taking your little one to meet the man in red himself, Santa Claus. It’s the perfect start to the holiday season, and usually comes alongside a bunch of other festive activities, like decorating the house, baking cookies, and doing your shopping.

Imgur

Or course, anybody who’s actually taken their toddler to meet Santa can tell you that it’s not always quite as simple and straightforward as you would hope. Toddlers don’t always like being handed off to a mysterious old man they’ve never met before, and the fact that he is (allegedly) the one that brings them presents and is supposed to be a jolly friend to good children is often kind of lost on them. A quick look at the internet shows that there’s no shortage of photos of kids being absolutely terrified of Santa Claus.

Imgur

So it came that Kerry Spencer, the mother to a toddler, took her son to visit the man in red at her local mall, and much like many children before him, the kid just was not having it. However, instead of screaming and crying like most children would, he had a bit of a different way of expressing how he felt…

Spencer posted her son’s reaction to meeting jolly old Saint Nick online, where it quickly went viral. Not only does he have a look of pure confusion and terror on his face, but the best part is the sign he’s making with his hands.

See, her son speaks American Sign Language, and in that particular language, the sign he’s making is the sign for “help.” So he’s concerned for his life and literally asking for help. It’d be tragic if it wasn’t so adorable and hilarious.

Spencer seems to be handling both her and her son’s internet fame quite well, taking time to explain the picture to other Twitter users. Hopefully her son was able to ask Santa for what he wanted once he got over his initial fear!
