Blog Challenge #3

Okay here is this weeks blog challenge from Suzanne. To pick a holiday and rant and/or rave about it.

I would have to say that all holidays are too commercialized. It drives me crazy. It is insane that they put out merchandise months ahead of time for specific holidays. But if I have to pick just one I would say Easter. It has been turned into just another holiday about candy, fun and a big fluffy bunny. Now I am all for candy...boy do I love candy. But the real reason behind Easter is being forgotten. I do believe it can be fun for the kids but also a learning experience too. A chance for them to learn about Jesus and his sacrifice for us.
I think we should all take a step back and think about the real reasons for the holidays we all celebrate.
