Ask your average youngster what Easter is all about and he’ll tell you about the Easter bunny, and finding Easter baskets filled with grass and jelly beans and a big chocolate Easter Bunny.
He’ll tell you about those pastel foil-covered chocolate eggs and Reeses eggs and Cadbury eggs. And, of course, there are Easter eggs to dye and flavored jelly beans and those sticky marshmallow bunnies.
But is that what Easter is really about? Jesus is Risen this day which gives us all cause to celebrate.
Enjoy the chocolate, but reflect on the reason for this wondrous spring holiday!
