Best Cities To Celebrate Easter
They just came out with a list of the 100 Best Places To Celebrate Easter.
The good news is your house isn't on the list, so you can relax. They looked at the percent of Christian population . . . churches per capita . . . brunch restaurants . . . candy and flower shops . . . egg hunt events . . . and the weather forecast.

Here in Buffalo it is a family holiday with a visit to church and an Easter ham, and don't forget the butter lamb, and some Easter bread...and an Easter basket or two or three...
