Sometimes People Go A Bit Too Far

Like a lot of people, I get a little tired of the meaning of Easter getting hijacked. Jesus didn't tell us to make a holiday out of what He did for us through His resurrection, but I would like it if we at least kept to the facts.

Along with Easter stuff (egg hunts, candy, etc.) around my house, we go all out for Easter. We watch the first half of Ben Hur (A Tale of the Christ) on Saturday night, and the second half on Easter Sunday, pray together, and even make chalk drawings on our driveway about Easter, weather permitting. We sort of overwhelm the fun, if pagan, stuff with the truth.

But I gotta say that this guy goes a little too far in his aversion for the paganomics of Easter. What do you think?
