Easter means different things to different people. Yes I believe its a fun time for children. A religious time for Christians. For me its a day I still have to get up and go to work.
I love the Easter celebration! Not the "Easter bunny" and egg-hunting stuff, nor the different viewss on who first called it Easter or when/why/how; it's the day I celebrate the resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, HALLELUJAH! He IS RISEN!!!
If there's food I'm in! I also celebrate with my Brothers and Sisters at church.
I love Easter, because I love Spring and all the Easter colors and the "uplifting-ness" of it. I celebrate it, though, not in the way religious people do. Instead, when my kids were little I more "extended out the meaning" to include all the birth and new starts that take place in Spring. I don't happen to believe in the religious "story" associated with Easter.
which version? the death and resurrection of christ? or the one with easter eggs and bunnies?
Absolutely. Great reverence and recognition should be given to the One who made it possible to have the mere opportunity given us to return to the presence of the Father. He offered Himself in the council of heaven, and so He fulfilled that appointment here on Earth.
I am also extremely grateful for what He did during those three days when His body lay in the tomb. It's good to know that even in death He continued His ministry on the other side.

How can you explain resurrection to young children? As a child I found the idea scary. As a parent I am not sure how to explain it to my children. Any ideas?
