Easter, like all American holidays, quickly turns into a way for merchandisers to make money. And there’s nothing wrong with having some jelly beans, marshmallow peeps, chocolate bunnies or Cadbury eggs. But that’s not what Easter is about.
A Sunday School teacher asked her class to write in 1 sentence "What Easter Means to Me." One student wrote: "Egg salad sandwiches for the next two weeks!"
But Easter is about much more than eggs or chocolate. It’s about resurrection. It’s about new life. But first, it’s about death.
