Aloha Friday - April 10
I've searched high and low for an easy meme to do on Fridays. This looks like a great one. You can play along too by going to An Island Life to add your link.
What makes Aloha Friday fun - and easy - is that we just post a simple question and ask people to answer it in the form of a comment. I told you it's easy!
Easter is my favorite holiday because it is all about Jesus, or at least that's what it is supposed to be about. Commercialism and atheism has made an effort to diminish Christ and the celebration of a Christian holiday by making the Easter Bunny, colored eggs, and candy more important than the resurrection of our Lord.
It really doesn't matter to me how the world decides to spend Easter Sunday or even that we do color eggs and eat candy. We attend church and worship the Lord and reflect upon His great sacrifice and finished work on the cross. We celebrate His resurrection. We stress it to our children. It's what is in your heart that matters, not the hype everyone else puts out there.
My question is, do you color Easter eggs and/or fill Easter baskets?
I think I already told you that we do color Easter eggs and give the kids each an Easter basket. We don't tell them it's from the Easter Bunny, though. We just tell them it's a gift from us to them.
