A few years ago when I was living in California I read somewhere that you could mail someone an easter egg. Just the egg- without a box! I thought this was the funniest thing and loved the idea of someone opening their mailbox and finding an easter egg inside. Since I wasn’t going to be able to travel home that year to see my family, this would have to do. I went to Target (duh) to pick up a pack of large plastic eggs, candy, and small toys. After filling them up I used clear packing tape over the seal so they wouldn’t break open during their journey to Minnesota. I got a few funny looks at the post office when I dropped them off, and half expected the person working to tell me I couldn’t mail easter eggs. But instead they printed the postage labels and off they went.
My brother wouldn’t open his easter egg mail because he thought it was a prank. I’m not sure what he thought would be inside, but was pleasantly surprised when he found only candy and tiny toy chicks.
