When did Easter become like Christmas with gifts and toys being given?


When I was growing up we got candy and clothes to wear on Easter Sunday. Now Easter is turning into another secular Christmas with lists for the Easter Bunny and toys galore. I obviously missed something, but when and WHY did this happen?

    Thank you, that makes sense to me. It seems strange, but I can see that if people can make money they are going to do whatever it takes to make more.

    That is a very good point. The parents should be the ones to decide what happens in the family.
