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.
Originally posted by rwingett 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.
