I know that even asking the question is hypocritical in light of the fact that I have a Christmas tree each year but what are your thoughts?
Everytime I see a stuffed bunny around this time, it always comes to my mind that it is a fertility symbol. How can I explain to my kids that the "Easter Bunny" comes and brings a basket. Even if I tell them it is from me, how do I explain that we are doing this to celebrate Jesus' resurrection? Am I thinking this over too much?
My husband is a pastor and we usually do some sort of Easter Egg hunt each year and I always feel as though I am not truly being a "light."
What is your opinion? My son is 4 and my daughter is 2; and are becoming more aware.
Thanks for your help.
