Lunedi Lunacy

According to a recent survey our good cousins to the South consume approximately $2,000,000.00 USD worth of chocolate at Eastertide.  I could find no statistics for Canada but I wouldn't be surprised to find that we are not far behind.   So where does all this chocolate come from?  Well these days I'd think mostly China but back in the 1930s Walt Disney had another idea.  So sit back, gnaw away on that chocolate bunny (apparently the proper way is to eat him ears first) and enjoy the way Easter eggs use to be made:

April 21 - 1863: Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, declares his mission as "He whom God shall make manifest".

Plenty of stats actually...just none for Easter time. Americans and Canadians are evidently separated at birth- both consume, on average, 12 pounds of chocolate per annum.

chocolate comes from some faraway land and is mysterious as the 18th Brits thought of where their tea originates.
