What Happen to the meaning of Easter?
What happen to the meaning of Easter? Easter is a special day,its is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.On the third day after his crucifixion(which is remembered on good friday) the new testament tells us that Jesus arose from the grave,appeared to his disciples and ultimately ascended to heaven.As Easter approched I notice the regular Easter items appearing in the stores,some quite early I must say. A super market in Bristol was selling Easter kitkat bars in January! According to Nielsen,American bought more than 53 million cases of beer during Easter week in 2008.In a Wal-Green I notice not only was there Easter baskets with the candy and rabbit, I also seen Batman,Spiderman,The Jetson,Flintstones,and some others I had not a clue who they were. I quess my point is where is Jesus? Schools don't even call it Easter vaction instead they call it holiday break or spring break. If we get back to the meaning of Easter maybe things like what happen in Columbus,Ohio wouldn't had happen.A teenage girl was shot in the head because she shown up at Easter dinner according to the host who shot her said the girl was dressed inappropriate outfit,she was wearing a T-shirt and short blue jean shorts.
