Here It Is: Easter Again

I used the above picture for the sole reason that when I typed the term “Easter Celebraton” (no quotes) into Google, it was one of the choices and I could find no good reason.  🙂

As I sit here writing this, I find myself wondering that it is a big Christian holiday:  Easter.  Easter is upon us and all day there has been celebrating and church, meals, and candy.  Those go together in my head because of my Christian upbringing, but as I sit here now and think about it, the whole Easter Bunny, church, Salvation, Resurrection, and celebration ideas just don’t fit very well.  Children pay more attention to Christmas and Easter because of gifts.  That may be the big draw to those two holidays.  I am not downing anyone who celebrates it at all.  I think celebrating is good for the body, mind, and soul.  I am simply pointing out something I noticed.  You can do with that as you will.

I used to be a big celebrator of Easter.  Easter Bunny in the morning, followed by church.  In my early years, it was Church at dawn, then Bunny, then church afterwards, followed by the noon meal.  This was a big feast in which all of my immediate family as well as my Dad’s family got together and celebrated.

We didn’t do that this year.  My family – parents, sibling, children, great niece, and so forth got together, ate, then did various things (such as nap) before leaving to go home around supper time.  It was enjoyable, but nothing like it used to be.

I have become non-religious in the last few years.  Not atheist, by any means, simply not a follower of Christianity or any other organized religion.  I don’t miss it.  My own closeness to God occurs anyway, much to the disbelief of many who feels that a non-churchgoer cannot have much faith.  I see this as a very limited perspective.

Be that as it may, I decided I should attempt to write something on this holiday.  Not certain exactly how I have done, but here it is.

Namaste,

Scott

    It wasn’t a christian holiday in the beginning. Catholicism changed the pagan worship into christian holiday. Same with Christmas.
