So today is Easter. I had a nice day. My mother-in-law came over to visit Baby C. He had a fun time with his basket full of goodies. Mostly he enjoyed the plastic eggs. He would put them all in the basket and take them all back out of the basket. Then he took them all apart, but couldn’t get them back together again.
The twins came over after church. This was their mom’s weekend, but we share Easter so I got them for a few hours. I kicked their butts at FIFA soccer on Xbox then we went outside to play basketball.
Then we went to my dad’s house for dinner. After dinner the kids went outside for the Easter egg hunt. They all had a blast. All three children got baskets both from us and my father so the house is loaded with candy.
All in all, I had a great day….except for the one thing that always bothers me about this day. What the hell does a bunny, candy, eggs, and baskets have to do with Easter? Easter is the day Jesus ascended into heaven (if you believe that sort of thing) so how did it turn into a day of bunnies bringing candy to little kids and hiding eggs that you busted your ass coloring?
I mean, this day is great for kids and retailers, but it just doesn’t make any sense when you actually think about it. I just don’t see any connection whatsoever.
Somebody please explain this blasphemy.
