In my opinion, when we celebrate Easter we normally celebrate by talking about the Easter Bunny a lot more than the real reason why we should celebrate Easter. What is the real reason we celebrate Easter? The answer to that question is the Resurrection of Christ.
However, if you wish to celebrate by talking about the Easter Bunny that’s ok just don’t overdo it.
One year on Easter Sunday, I went with my Mom and Dad up to my sister’s church and the children’s sermon proved to be interesting. Let Me try to explain. The pastor explained to the young children that when we celebrate Easter, we can celebrate both the Easter Bunny and the Resurrection of Christ when we celebrate Easter. He did it in two parts, the first part was about the Easter Bunny and the second part was on the Resurrection of Christ.
The pastor explained to the kids that they could celebrate and have fun finding their Easter baskets the Easter Bunny left them but be sure to remember the real reason we’re celebrating and that is the Resurrection of Christ. He also reminded the children when they talked about the Easter Bunny to overdo it. What a children’s sermon.
If you have kids of your own, always remember there is nothing wrong with letting them hear a little bit about the Easter Bunny or letting them find baskets that the Easter Bunny brought them. Just find some way to incorporate the story and meaning of the Resurrection of Christ.
There are several links and images about the Resurrection of Christ for you to look at and there are several links and images for the history and story of the Easter Bunny. I do hope you look at some links from both categories.
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL AND I HOPE YOU HAVE FUN CELEBRATING IT WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
