Easter Brunch is a popular tradition on Sunday. Brunch was created by taking breakfast and lunch and combining them into one larger meal. It’s a merger of the words “breakfast” and “lunch” generating a hoot of a portmanteau: “Brunch.”
Brunch originated in England in the late 1800’s, but became very popular in the U.S. to treat hangovers. It works well for those that had 10 too many the night before and couldn’t bring themselves to eat until that compromising time where lunch could be had, but bacon and pancakes sound really good too. Brunch allows the freedom to have both. And America never shies away from freedom and overeating.
