I’m not casting judgement on any parent who promotes Easter as the day Little Bunny Foo-Foo prances through the house or yard, hiding eggs full of delicious treats for their kiddos to find, but this South Park clip really says it all.
Why do we as parents choose to subscribe to group think just to save face? My parents were always very honest with me about Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter bunny and it didn’t prevent me from having an imagination or limited my creativity. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m one of the most creative people I know. (toot-toot)
I choose to teach my children that Easter pays homage to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For that, we should all be truly grateful.
Don’t worry, they’ll still get their Easter baskets full of goodies from mommy and daddy. No harm in that.
