For some reason, people find it necessary to pollute or morph Christian holidays/holy days with fictitious characters that completely detract from the true meaning of the day. Jesus stated that we would be persecuted for his sake and, I guess, that is the cross that Christians must bear. But why do we allow a fat elf in a red suit or a bunny with colored eggs dominate the day? To tell me that it is innocuous is to defile your believes in GOD. He is not to be replaced or substituted with anything else. Kids having both religious and a pseudo-secular meaning of the day only confuses the child and misrepresents the days strong impact on the being and soul. You, as a Christian, can’t afford to muddle the meaning in the mind of your children if they are to have a true religious understanding of the importance of GOD in their lives. Children learn things early and quick so don’t fool yourself or do you and your children a grave disservice. The day is being used by those that want to sell you needs, like candy, eggs for coloring, baskets and the like. The only need you have this day is to know Christ died for your sins and to be glad that you have salvation and a chance for eternal life. If you want a bunny to give you “things”, make a special day for it. Christians should always fight back to have this abomination removed from Easter. The only time a bunny fits into the occasion is if it happens to be on the supper menu. True Christians who know this bunny thing does harm, never adds it or replaces it for Jesus.. It’s all pretty cut and dried. I know the easter bunny can’t resurrect your soul. Do you know it?
