I have often wondered why Christmas gets more attention than Easter. After all, isn’t the death & RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ as important as His birth?
1 Corinthians 15:2-4
The only thing “exciting” to me as a child when it came to Easter was getting a new Easter dress for church and eating a yummy ham dinner. I guess that wasn’t so bad, but why not celebrate it a little more than that?
I don’t mean by joining in on the commercialism of marshmallow chickens, chocolate bunnies, and candy-filled eggs.
Ways To Celebrate Easter
- Talk about Easter with your kids, do Easter activities (focused on the true meaning of Easter)
- Read the “Easter Story” from the Holy Bible as well as children story books (once again, only stories that portray the true meaning of Easter)
- Decorate for Easter
- Give your children special Easter gifts that can in some way represent the true meaning of Easter and honor the Greatest Gift of all.
I know it can be difficult to change your family traditions, but perhaps you should consider it. What matters most is that our heart is in tune with God’s Word. I just ask that you search your heart and study the scriptures with a prayer that God would show you what HE would like for your Easter celebrations to encompass.
