So like, being quite the lurker and all,
The egg thing comes from the Pagan holiday that was there before. Meow
oo yeh I temporarily forgot that everything was stolen!
Oh I just had a thought about christianity, no one thinks to ask, so like there was all these other religions and then jesus came along and made everyone believe, so God the creator of the whole world just sat there for millions of years and said 'OOOOh I think it's time I got credit where it's due'. Sorry end of rant.

Well, i think it's a nice tradition for kids - i loved to search all my Easter eggs and chocolates Easter bunnies in the garden! Now it's Easter money and I don't even have to search it ... there is just no excitement and no sense anymore. This year I will not celebrate Christmas either - I don't know if my grandmother will accept, but we will see ... ;)
I'm celebrating Christmas, I think the last few years I have felt a bit like er i dunno, but I love Christmas because it's more about family and friends for me. It makes winter better (even though I don't mind cold), everyone gets happy and excited. I didn't do anything like egg hunts I remember one year my grandparents got me these chocolates that were the 7 dwarves, caramel filled they were soooo yummy.
When i was little my friend once said 'at tea time you should all sit and eat at the table like the diciples and jesus did' yes because I bet you think about jesus when you're scoffing your face with easter eggs!
