  • I think the woman said it best already. If you dont want to participate in the holiday, then dont. Stop trying to force your views and opinions on people who enjoy celebrating a holiday is what I would tell those who are so offended. They are doing exactly what they claim believers do, trying to force their point of view on us.

  • Oh, now "spring eggs" I could get behind because there ARE different names for them depending on your religious views. We have Ostara eggs in our house... But Spring spheres is stupid!

  • WHAT? Christmas is now WINTER Holiday! Whats next?

    Mothers day = she that gave birth day
    Fathers day = he that helped create me day
    Thanksgiving = lets eat day
    Memorial day = cook out day
    Labor day = an extra sunday this week day

    While the above may not be "religious" days...The world may keep taking Christ out of the world but ONE day Christ is going to take the WORLD or out of this world. I hide eggs that have "the message" in them (a cross/ a cloth etc) and then after all are found the kids hear the REAL easter (every year) I have one friend who finds it "offensive" to tell her child this "story" yet they come every year........

  • Uncle Sam needs to grow a spine & stop allowing other groups tell a large Christian following they cant celebrate their beliefs. Other countries would tell you to pound sand if you tried that w/ them. (no pun intended) -lol

  • I thought it was freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.

  • Regardless of its (varied) religious origins, the term easter egg has become a part of our culture. It's silly to deny that cultural relevance over the fear of offending someone with a tenuous religious tie.
