It wasn’t until after I posted yesterday and checked my social network feeds that it was Easter Sunday, what a thing to forget eh? I guess it’s like forgetting Christmas, except that’s the same date every year, whereas Easter is the same day(s). I thought, seeing as today is Easter Monday I would write a little bit about Easter, which will then lead into a two-parter to be concluded on Wednesday.
Yesterday (Sunday) I saw a quite a few people complain about how Easter was
shit, rubbish, or a “rubbish excuse for a holiday”. I thought to myself, is it really “just an excuse” or has it lost it’s meaning over the years? Do we see Easter now as a time for buying people chocolate eggs, or the death resurrection of Jesus? Is all the technology we have in our life now, smartphones, tablets, laptops, pushing us away from Religious events (such as Christmas and Easter) towards a more scientific approach to life, or are our “youngsters” not being taught enough about Religion? I know Religion was cancelled as an option at my school because not enough people chose it in their final years.
So let me know your opinions on the subject to be concluded on Wednesday.
