    Very funny piece on the "War on Christmas."

    Good one! Thanks for the link.

    If we could do something about the music for a start, I'd be happy!

    But it also made me seriously think, as I have many times before, that this is exactly why as a Christian I prefer Easter. Apart from an overdose of chocolate, it's still ours.

    Before anyone says it, I know that there are aspects of Easter that are supposed to have been lifted from pagan festivals. I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about Christian tradition vs modern holiday-celebrating.

    In our family, it was all about the Easter Bunny, hiding Easter eggs, and eating an Eater meal. We didn't consider Jesus at all. In short, it was a purely secular celebration in the Wingett household.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to say non-Christians didn't celebrate Easter. I meant more that Christians are able to celebrate Easter our way without feeling the commercialisation (chocolate) has impinged upon that. I think keeping the Christian aspects of Christmas at the forefront is a lot harder for us.
