If you thought Easter was all about bunnies and chocolate eggs, quick history lesson: Easter is a festival that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, three days after his crucifixion. Current day celebrations however, do involve food {what festival doesn’t?}, so we won’t dole out any more sermons; we’ll get to our list of Easter deals in and around town.
