Celebrating Easter

What is our understanding of Easter? Is it a chance to color eggs and collect candy in our Easter Basket, or is it a special time for us to celebrate Jesus and what He did for us? Like Christmas, many of those who have no real connection to Jesus have hijacked our Christian meaning of this holiday. Instead of celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus, they are coloring chicken eggs and eating peanut butter and chocolate eggs. Sound about right? I know someone is going to get mad for saying that, but that’s really the truth. We can make our gift-giving at Christmas something spiritual by saying that we are giving to others like God gave us Jesus at Christmas. But at easter, I struggle to make the connection of easter eggs with Jesus raising from the dead. So, if someone asked us what we are celebrating at Easter, what would we say?
