Why do people assume the easter bunny crap is for everyone on the planet. For the past week people have been asking my daughter if she's excited for the damn easter bunny. What I'm doing for easter and balahh blah blahh. I say oh sorry we're not christian and we don't do the easter bunny story....Its the end of the world because heaven forbid i don't keep up with the sacred tradition of lying to my child about a magic bunny that breaks into your house to hide the eggs you colored and give you chocolate...thats apparently the best way to "celebrate" the death of the Christians savior. Can someone please explain this tradition to me??? I get Santa...to a degree. Jesus was born then apparently...and we give gifts to celebrate his birth...But easter??? Jesus died then...why is it necessary to color eggs and have a giant bunny hide them...what is the relevance to jesus dying on the cross and when did it become acceptable to celebrate the brutal death of a great profit...whats up with it...i just don't get it ..you think it would be a time to mourn...not celebrate.
