April Showers bring Big Baskets

They're featuring pre-packed Easter Baskets as big as Santa's packs in the CVS drugstore on Armitage in Chicago where these kids' mothers shop. Bubble wands have given way to licensed properties like "Animal Planet" and "Build-a-Bear". I had thought that Halloween was the new Christmas. Now there's yet another contender in kids' world of giant gift-occasions.

But beware! A pre-packed basket may be a convenience but a giant one brings an inconvenience. It's harder to hide. I'm not sure that they'll sell.
