Along with longer days and the robin's tweet, Easter is a sure sign that spring with us.

Never mind that displays of Easter merchandise displays popped up in stores before the last kiss of Valentine's Day. Easter Sunday is four weeks from tomorrow and that's a good enough sign of spring for me.

Of course, as with any holiday comes advertisements. As you're about to see, Easter has been featured in ads for probably as long as publications have existed.

The Smirnoff Dacquiri. These folks have given up on the eggs. The kids' baskets are next to go.

OK, that's enough drinking for now. How about something to eat, like this unforgettable Spam upside down pie? Mother thought this looked good for Easter Sunday, but that might have been the beer and dacquiris talking.
