Let's celebrate Jesus' resurrection by gorging on candy! Makes perfect sense. There were Cadbury Creme Eggs in the cave when they rolled away the rock on the third day, right?
Probably not. But that's not going to stop us, or the great American marketing machine that has created some of the most adorably sweet commercials for the sweetest of holidays.
And some of the most horrifying.

6. M&M's set the standard for tooth-rotting adorability and good manners in Easter advertising. Bawk! Bawk!
5. Cadbury has been doing the inter-species thing for years, still airing the same Creme Egg commercials with rabbits making non-rabbit noises. In the early '80s, they got their Mini Eggs in on some cute but chirpy action.
4. Then Fannie May had to get sadistic, denying a cute little bun-bun his candy. Assholes!
