Easter is great. I love coloring eggs, hunting for them, filling baskets, eating jelly beans and doing all the other stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with the real meaning behind Easter. This year Tucker is old enough to hear kids talk about the Easter Bunny. Let me just say that I don't want my kids to believe that some giant magical bunny comes and gives them a basket of treats. I wasn't even keen on the idea of Santa Clause, but at least in my mind I can justify that he represents the spirit of giving and has some symbolism that I can relate to Christ. But the Easter Bunny. Come on.
Can I just tell my children that Mommy gets them treats to celebrate the day. Tell them what the day really means and explain that bunnies and chicks are just fun because they represent springtime?
