Like marriage, etiquette and the tango, an old Easter custom is making a comeback. More and more parents are dressing up their sons and daughters and taking them to meet the Easter bunny. For the last decade, a growing number of department stores, including Nordstrom, Robinson's, Bullock's, the Broadway and Bullocks Wilshire, have been hosting Easter breakfasts on the three weekends prior to the holiday.

Hopping down the Bunny Trail isn't always an easy journey. In fact, the Easter Bunny was accompanied by two uniformed guards Friday during a visit to Newport Dunes Aquatic Resort. The appearance of the fabled rabbit in past years has triggered a stampede of youngsters. "They're after the loot," said Anne Evans-Quinn, general manager of Newport Dunes.

Four-year-old Colton Greenwood couldn't wait to meet the Easter bunny Friday. Colton and his parents were first in line to greet the rabbit that visited the Trudy and Norman Louis Valley Shelter in North Hollywood. "I love making the kids happy and bringing a smile to their faces," said the 5 1/2-foot hare--actually a volunteer named Corey Ford--who brought a little Easter cheer to children at the shelter.

It's a delicate matter, this Easter Bunny business. Oh, I know. You think it's a long way off and you don't have to think about it yet. That you still have plenty of time to come up with an answer to all your kids' questions. Like, how does the Easter Bunny know that you recently moved? Or how does the Easter Bunny get admitted to security-gated apartments, especially since he can't reach the intercom button? Or why do we celebrate Easter, anyway?

The idea of one Easter bunny was scary enough for the toddler. She didn't seem ready for two. But eventually, the 2-year-old took her hands away from her eyes and saw that the white-furred pair scampering into Valley Shelter bore gifts for all the children at the residence for the abused and homeless. "This is great, but she's petrified," her mother said. "Here, Mommy will go with you and shake the bunny's hand."

The Easter bunny paid an early visit to a group of youngsters in Oxnard schools Friday, bringing them loads of fresh strawberries and a chance to play outside. About 80 youngsters lined up on a grassy knoll behind the Carl Dwire School in Oxnard before dashing off to find hidden strawberries. It didn't take long--about 10 minutes--for the kids to find all 750 strawberries. Susy Cueanas, 5, scrunched up her face every time she bit into a strawberry.

The Easter bunny showed up at a downtown shopping mall to pose for photos with children, but wound up getting his mug shot taken instead. Clyde Dale Lashbaugh, 38, was arrested--in a full bunny suit--for allegedly violating his parole as a registered sex offender. Authorities said Lashbaugh had recently been released from prison on sex charges and that one of his parole conditions was that he avoid contact with children under 18. He was taken to the state prison in Vacaville.

Workers at the Van Nuys Division of the U.S. Postal Service ready themselves once a year for the onslaught of more than 5,000 letters to Santa Claus. They answer every one. But last week they were caught off guard by a letter to the Easter Bunny. Only one. From Jonathan Storm of Chatsworth. "Please give me a parrot, a real one, Dear Easter Bunny," 9-year-old Jonathan wrote in crayon. "Make him tame please. From Jonathan Storm. Love you."
