Easter in Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not recognize any religions other than Islam. The national ID cards have only two options for religion: "Muslim" and "Non-Muslim." Which makes it really hard for the Easter Bunny to get a visa. But we've got connections:
Don't let the bunny suit fool you, that's a Marine in there.
On the hunt for Easter eggs in a swimsuit, as one does.
Expat kids are just like other kids: they love candy.
While you might not expect it, the supermarkets in Saudi Arabia do sell holiday candies...but they are mostly the four-month-old Christmas candies that didn't sell elsewhere. Delicious irony, am I right?
