While I know my readers no doubt have a variety of reasons for liking (or not liking) the holiday, for me this holiday has two meanings.
There is the religious one. I am a Christian, and this holiday celebrates the idea that Christ died for our sins. To me this holiday is more significant religiously then Christmas. I attended Church this morning which was uplifting.
There is also the commercial holiday which is fun and enjoyable. I love chocolate and its always fun to watch little kids riffle through their easter baskets seeing what treats or toys are waiting for them. This year I got my niece a bunch of scribble eggs, plastic eggs she could draw on. She seemed quite happy to doodle away, carrying the egg wherever she went for awhile.
Its also a day of togetherness. So I wish all of you a happy Easter for whatever reasons you celebrate it. If you don’t, I hope you had a great day as well.
EDIT: I thought I posted this yesterday, but apparently I only saved it to my drafts. So pretend it was yesterday when you read this.
