New life, rebirth, signs of spring, etc.
What's the deal with the candy?
Candy that's only available in the springtime?
Dear grocery store/ candy store/ etc.
Are you concerned that we may have run out of food during the winter? (see the blog posts from February after the groundhog threw four feet of snow at us) Now you want to fatten us up with tempting candy?
