Did everyone have a good Easter? It wasn’t raining on Saturday so we took the kids to the park and then ditched them. But they left a bread crump trail and found their way back to our gingerbread house. So much for our quiet weekend at home.
Over the weekend, we also placed graffiti on eggs and hunted for candy-filled eggs. This makes me wonder, what does the Easter Bunny, eggs, and candy have to do with the resurrection of Jesus? Same deal with the birth of Christ and Christmas trees and presents. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not criticizing our traditions. I’m just curious how these religious events developed into today’s holiday traditions. But regardless of how it came about, our kids had a good time over Easter weekend.
