Last weekend we had a long weekend due to the Easter Holidays. The kids enjoyed the extra day off as it translated into more play time for them. This year we didn’t go on any Easter egg hunt and there were no chocolates eaten.
I do believe that Christ has risen and that he had died for our sins however I do not buy into the concept of celebrating Easter with fanfare and splurging on so-called Easter goodies. Many religious practices have been commercialized over the years that they lose meaning.
We only celebrate Chinese New Year and birthdays and anniversaries in our family. We don’t celebrate Easter nor Christmas since last year as I do not see any meaning in doing so. The kids do not need to wait till Easter or Christmas to get treats or presents and they get these perks all year around.
What I have been doing with the kids during this period of time is to re-look at our relationship with GOD and each other. The boy are attending Sunday school and I have been reading up a lot on Faith.
We are learning how to relate better to each other and also change our routine around so that we can use our time more efficiently.
What have you been doing this Easter?
