Letter to the Editor - Wednesday, April 6: Meaning of Easter

IN EASTER Saturday's Advocate the vox pop "Why do we celebrate Easter?" was answered by some young children.

How sad their knowledge of Easter seemed to be limited to the Easter bunny and chocolate eggs.

While I wouldn't deny them the fun that implies, surely they deserve to be taught the historical facts.

Jesus is the reason for our celebrations of both Christmas and Easter, but it seems political correctness means we are to focus on commercialism and fairytales instead. How sad and how short-sighted when the truth is Jesus died and rose again with the promise of eternal life to all who trust in him. Now that's worth celebrating.
