From Professor Foster's 6 foot high teddy bear for Baby Viva, to Todd's annual jet ski and hang glider purchases for his children, Easter has become another Christmas in the White Dads homes. What's worse, innocuous holidays like St. Patrick's Day now involve leprechaun hunts and golden candies (instead of just Fish McBites and Shamrock Shakes).
