What is Easter to you?
To me it's a celebration of the fact that Jesus died to forgive us our sins and bring us everlasting life, shown through the awe of the risen Christ.
But let's not pretend that the trappings of Easter aren't fun!
I love the bunnies and chicks and eggs and chocolate and Easter egg hunts. All these things are as much a part of Easter as giving presents are a part of Christmas. They're ways of celebrating these Christian festivals.
And this week, the week before Holy Week, we have been concentrating on the sheer Easter- time fun-time.
We've made Easter bunny masks
We've eaten Cadbury's mini eggs puddings
We've seen baby lambs, chicks and bunnies
We've celebrated in advance!
And we've still got a couple of Easter Egg Hunts, Hot Cross Buns and the Easter eggs themselves to come :)
