We have a long way to go with this pandemic but at least one crisis has been averted. The Easter Bunny is still allowed to make deliveries this weekend.

The Washington Post reported that New Zealand’s prime minister, Jacinda Arden, declared the Easter Bunny to be an essential worker. And now we know that the Easter Bunny lives in New Zealand.

Arden told kids that, although not quarantined, the Easter Bunny is “quite busy” and “might not be able to visit every home this Easter.” The prime minister suggested that people help their neighbors this year by creating social distancing-approved Easter egg hunts.

Many communities in the Charlotte area are asking residents to tape pictures of colorful Easter eggs in their windows for children to spot as they walk through the neighborhood, which is similar to the teddy bear hunts of the past few weeks. Candy will have to be distributed strictly at home.

According to the Post, Prime Minister Arden also included the Tooth Fairy on her list of essential workers. That could come into play after one too many jelly beans.
