How are we supposed to celebrate Easter?
This question has been rattling around in my brain for the last month. How would Jesus want me to celebrate his death and resurrection? Easter eggs, candy, new clothes, a bunny. Is that what he had in mind? I highly doubt it. Living in the country and time that we do, it is hard to celebrate a holiday without big business getting their profit too.
So far, I'm planning to make a sweet baked good in the morning with a side of bacon, giving the kids each a chocolate cross for their Easter gift and then having an Easter egg hunt. Sometime this week we'll be dying our eggs for the hunt and then on Sunday evening we'll be having our Easter ham dinner with all the fixins.
How do you celebrate Easter?
