Basically, there are two Easters: the very important day on the Christian religious calendar, and the commercialized candy orgy. This secular celebration of spring is all in good fun—only it gets a little weird when you stare into its sugary heart for too long.

That’s especially true if you spend too long looking at pictures from the annual White House Egg Roll from—let’s say—1985 to 1995. Roughly from George H.W. Bush’s tenure as VP through the first couple of years of Bill Clinton’s time as president. Surely I’m not the only one feeling a little weird here? You know, a little dizziness, maybe some light palm sweat?

There’s just something about the pastel color palette of the period that, when combined with a giant rabbit wearing a yellow gingham dress and balloons and a whole lot of pale pink, makes things go a little conceptually wobbly.

I’m not making any allegations here, but do look at his pupils.
