Have we lost the true meaning of Easter?

April 8, 2007 10:58am CST
I was reading in a newspaper that more children thought that Easter was more about the bunny and colored eggs, than about the rising up to Heaven by Jesus Christ. Somehow along the way,Christians have allowed comercialism to take over the the true meaning of yet another Christian Celebration. As a Christian, Do you agree?

I think just about every "holiday" that began as a religious holiday has somehow become more commercialized. I think it's a matter of how you celebrate and if you create an atmosphere that allows for the true meaning of things to be brought out then your family will always know the meaning behind the holiday. I think just about anything anymore is based on commercial values and there's nothing that hasn't been touched by it.
