Easter Parade is a 1957 novella by Rex Stout, one of his Nero Wolfe mysteries. It was first published in Look magazine. It involves the planned theft of a hybridized orchid worn in a corsage to an Easter Sunday church service. It's nice to find stories that are seasonal, especially ones centering around holidays other than Christmas.
