Should the Easter Bunny Be a Part of Easter? #TellUsHowYouReallyFeel
Written by Tamara M. on 25 March 2016
Easter is one of the holiest observances of the Christian faith, but some of the religious aspects of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ are watered down thanks to none other than the Easter Bunny. What does a bunny with colored eggs and candy really has to do with Easter? Its seems like another marketing ploy to make Easter more appealing to the masses, especially children, and of course, to boost spending with an inordinate amount of money spent on candy, toys, baskets and the like. After all, what’s Easter without spending a small fortune?
The Easter Bunny is nothing more than a symbol that began with German Lutherans as a judge of whether children had been naughty or nice, reminiscent of Santa Claus. But with such a holy observation, does the Easter Bunny detract from the real reason for the holiday? Does the Easter Bunny serve a real role? Should it be recognized by Christians? Is it blasphemous? #TellUsHowYouReallyFeel
