That was the only thing I looked forward to, because while my parents always bestowed gifts on Easter, they made sure they were the religious kinds of gifts which was great and I loved all my Cd's and books from the Christian Bookstore. The one thing my parents didn't do was Easter bunnies or egg hunts, or dying eggs...growing up that was a bit too secular.
I find it extremely hilarious that now in the midst of enjoying a grandchild, Tigger will be participating in an egg hunt and this is the second year there are pictures with the big scary bunny. Are most of the gifts Tigger is receiving Christian based? Of course, and obviously for my family and the two of us, Easter is very important to us...and I hope that growing up, Tigger can remember why 'we' celebrate as well as enjoy some mainstream traditions in good fun.
Sunday we will then do a community egg hunt as well as my parent's private egg hunt for Tigger.
What are your plans? Happy Easter!
