The Easter Bunny did not visit my kids last night.  The closest we have is my daughter’s real “bunny” rabbit that lives in the shed. The Easter Bunny didn’t stop by our house for the same reason Santa doesn’t stop by in December.  The Easter Bunny is another example of how the world tries to distract from the true meaning of this Holiday by offering a substitute character that appeals to kids. Today, Christians celebrate the Risen Savior Jesus Christ, not a make-believe, magic bunny that brings candy. If you are a Christian and choose to tell your kids about make-believe characters that bring candy and presents, which is pretty important to most kids, then will they understand the real meaning?  Why not focus on the real excitement about the Son of God, being born as man, living a sinless life, giving himself on a cross, and being raised on the third day. Get kids excited about that!
