I have been unable to make sense of the holiday known as Easter. Some think it is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. Other people think it is the time to buy chocolate eggs and rabbits. I have nothing against eggs, rabbits, chocolate, or resurrection, but I don’t see the relevance of them to a special day.
Is it possible that the day known as Easter is nothing more than an excuse people give themselves to eat candy or go to church? When I want to do something, I do it. When I don’t want to do something, I don’t do it. I don’t need a special day once a year to do something.
If you want to hide a bunch of eggs in the grass and search for them, you can do this on any day in a location that has both grass and eggs. If you want to eat rabbits made of chocolate, you can buy them at Hy-Vee. If you came out of your grave three days after being crucified, I would like to know how you did it.
No harm comes from celebrating Easter, but I don’t see how doing rituals once a year helps anyone. I prefer to eat eggs rather than hunt for them. I would like to know what it means to other people. Is there a link between eggs, rabbits, and Jesus?
Easter appears to be a celebration of life. I don’t need a special day of the year to appreciate the relevance of life. I am pro-life every day of the year.
