    Great thoughts Dr. Deb. I would add that all Christians are offended by the notion that our most signicant and holiest of days in the liturgical calendar is stolen by mainstream society and supported by the liberal media. However you are right to allow all to celebrate the day accordingly because we Christian parents (especially moms haha) get too excited about our children participating in "Egg Hunts" and meeting the "So-called Easter Bunny" We just have to make sure that we teach our what is most important so that they can grow in their faith. God bless us all.

    Thanks Jorge!

    I've been thinking there might also be value in teaching Christian children about all known inconsistencies within Christianity, not just the Pagan origins of Easter eggs, the Easter bunny, and Christmas trees. For example, I was in college when I read that the story of the Virgin Mary giving birth is not unique. The world's greatest heroes are also said to have been born to virgin mothers: Buddha, Osiris, Genghis Khan, Gilgamesh, and more. I think Christian children will experience much less internal religious conflict as teens/adults when their parents have prepared them to thoughtfully consider and incorporate into their belief systems these kinds of well-known historical/literary points. Peace!
