The Easter Bunny And All Things Christmas

Hi all, Mal here from the Candy-Coated Mystery Series by Nancy Coco. Most of you know by now that I'm a dog. For the most part I like being a dog. It has great perks. I get to sniff out dead things and point them out to Allie--she's my human.

We live on Mackinac Island in the great state of Michigan. Being so far north, we sometimes get snow for Easter. As you can see from the picture, sometimes snow is a "What-the-what?" kind of thing for a little dog like me. Still I've seen that Easter Bunny hope through it better than I can, leaving colored eggs and baskets everywhere.

Of course she leaves fudge, too, because Mackinac is the fudge capital of the world. Being a dog, I can't eat chocolate fudge, but there are other flavors I like, for example: peanut butter fudge, maple walnut fudge, pecan blonde fudge, and salted caramel fudge. Of course, salted caramel is my pal Caramella, the cat, Mella for short, anyway it's her favorite because she says it was named after her. She claims she is more famous than I am. I disagree since I've found more dead things than she has so far. But I digress. Easter can also be green, but cold as the snow has melted but the wind off the great lakes is still brisk. That's why I wear a sweater.

So, I suppose you are curious why I have Christmas in the title? Well, our next book is titled, "Have Yourself a Fudgy Little Christmas." That's a bit of an ear worm, don't you think? I bet you sung that title. I like to sing, too. Any who... It comes out in October, this year. But is clearly a Christmas book. I like Christmas. The tree and the sparkling lights and the warm milk and the cookies and we can't forget Santa.

I've heard that some people prefer Easter to Christmas. I can't decide so I'm taking a poll. Which do you prefer? Easter or Christmas? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Easter everyone!


  1. I will say I like them both for different reasons.

  2. Debby, I do, too- They both have wonderful memories that surround them.

  3. I'm going to go with Christmas, just because more of our family is able to get together then rather than for Easter.

  4. I'm going with Christmas, I love the lights.

  5. I too like both for different reasons.

  6. I too like both but for different reasons.
