Easter Parade ("In Your Easter Bonnet")

1) This song is about a special Easter hat to be worn with your "Sunday best." Will you be getting dressed up this weekend? I will

2) Judy Garland's partner in this movie was supposed to be Gene Kelly, but he was unavailable because he broke his ankle playing volleyball. Have you ever lost a big opportunity because of a medical issue? nothing big

3) Garland later confessed that, at first, she would have preferred Kelly because she knew him well and was intimidated by Fred Astaire. By the end of filming, she found she enjoyed Astaire a great deal. Can you think of a friend with whom you had a rocky relationship at the beginning? a couple of my teacher friends--but they've become great pals!

4) This song was inspired by New York City's Easter Parade. Does your community host a similar event? no, it's still winter

5) The biggest chocolate Easter egg was made in Italy, measured 34 feet tall and weighed a staggering 15,000 lbs. Do you think it's possible to have too much chocolate? I know it can happen

6) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. A 2013 poll tells us that red is by far the favorite jelly bean color, with yellow a distant second. Do you have a preference? I'm not really a fan of jelly beans, unless they are Jelly Belly brand

7) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween?

8) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated? as much as I moan and groan about "spring forward" it does give me a bit of a boost to have light in the evening

9) This year, April Fool's Day happens to coincide with Easter Sunday. Do you expect to fall victim to any pranks this weekend?
I don't think so

I'm not much of a prankster, anyway, but I think it would be creepy to play an April Fool's trick on Easter.

I can't believe that tomorrow is April and we have an inch of freaking snow in the forecast. Watch it hit 80 in two weeks and never come back to spring...

Looking forward to spring. Hope your winter leaves soon. I love black jelly beans. But only a few at a time!

We are about two or three weeks ahead of you and the crocuses are in bloom and Easter is going to b in the 60s with snow showers on Monday.

So many of us like jelly bellies.
I am hoping to not have pranks done to me this Easter. I'll just crawl right back into bed if it happens. lol

Maybe I should try the jelly beans that are like the Harry Potter candies. I read about them in somebody else's answer.
