Today, we look to the census for a celebration of Easter, and we find it!
Three year old Easter Sunday is found in the 1920 census in Marion County, Florida, living on the farm of her aunt and uncle, Lucretia and Oliver Moore.
Were there any Peeps in the census? Yes! In the 1920 Census, we find Rose colored Peeps. Yes, Rose Peeps is living in Chautauqua, New York. This Peeps collection includes Lilly and Jasme.
1920 was certainly a good year for Easter in the census. Even Peter Rabbit is found living in St. Louis, while Peter Old Rabbit resides on the Crow Reservation in Big Horn, Montana.
Yes, the census was populated with every Bunny you can think of, their numbers growing with each passing year. As you'd expect.
And in 1870, Jesus Christ, an Italian immigrant, is a hotel keeper in Santa Clara County, California.
Ah, the census. It never fails to amuse and entertain. Happy Easter!
