My daughter is raised completely agnostic, I've NEVER brought religion up, but through her friends and school ethical and culture classes I guess she's learning about religion. So yesterday DD asked me all about the meaning of Easter. What exactly are we celebrating ? Why eggs ? why Chocolate? where does the Easter bunny come from ?
So I tell DD the basic story of lent ; why lent and how people in the old days would give each other eggs as gifts when lent was over. And told her what the story behind lent was how Jesus died and then got ressurected and DD goes : And he came back as the Easter Bunny ?
I was laughing so hard and she didn't get why ... in the end I really couldn't explain how it went from a super morbid thing to a bunny leaving gifts and eggs. I guess it's time to Wiki.
Have your children ever asked ? how do you explain it ?
