Easter …..
Bonnets, Parades, Eggs, Bunnies, Baskets, Chicks?

All that, in celebration of, if it’s true, probably the most important event in ALL of human history.
It’s certainly understandable, and easy, that those who don’t have any interest if it’s true ……..ignore it, or engage in just the fun and fluff.

It’s obvious that Easter has been hijacked by money making interests for the purpose of making money. In retrospect, it was fairly easy to do. The word “Easter” is easy to hijack. It has no well understood connection to the event being celebrated.

The word “resurrection” however is a different case. It is a word that is familiar enough to people. The meaning of the word: “to come back to life after being dead,” is also fairly familiar. And, the word has direct connection to the event …..by describing it. Therefore, it’s much harder to hijack the word.

So, what if anyone and everyone with an interest in the actual event, completely stopped using the word: “Easter,” and instead used only the words: “Resurrection Day?”

The importance of the event might actually become clearer …..and more useful! The defining event of the last two thousand years could certainly be put to better use than it is!!!!!

Happy Resurrection Day!

I Love you,
William
