spring for everyone

No matter how old you are or how sophisticated your aesthetic, bunnies and chicks have an undeniable appeal. Maybe it’s because they are the archetypes of renewal and spring, and who doesn’t like spring? Or maybe they just make us feel like a kid again. Whatever the reason, it is why Easter* is by far my favorite holiday. I get to indulge in pastels and farm animals and almost anything with a serious cute factor without sacrificing my “cool.”

*As a historian who grew up as a Unitarian, I definitely have a universalist approach to holidays. So whether you celebrate Easter, or the vernal equinox, or just more sun in the sky, here are some solstice selects for you.
