Peru: I Speak Pretty One Day

I was trying to explain how we celebrate Easter in the US to my workers. The following conversation happened in Spanish.

Me: Well, we have a big meal with our families.
Workers: Us too!
Me: And then we have the children paint chicken eggs many different colors.
Workers: Aw, cute. Then what?
Me: A giant bunny breaks into the house, hides the eggs, and if you find them you get new clothes and chocolate!
Workers: .........


Even better, I didn´t know how to say "breaks into" so I may have explained it as a "robber bunny".
