Springtime Pagan Traditions




I really couldn't even called this post "Easter" because the following pictures have nothing to do with what I consider the true Easter holiday.
Nevertheless, we did have a marvelous time with such nonsense as egg dying, egg hunting, egg eating and the like. The kids got an immense kick out of coloring the eggs as you can see from the photos. Mom was a little lame this year and tried to steer clear of sugar by filling the plastic eggs with yogurt covered raisins...but I think the kids got enough treats when all was said and done. Eric's mom also sent a package for them which is always very exciting to open. They looked so cute in their new little church clothes.One of my favorite parts of the real Easter is singing Easter hymns. They bring the spirit of the resurrection so strongly to my heart. This is one of my favorite "Easter" scriptures:
Corinthians 15:55-57
55 O adeath, where is thy sting? O bgrave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of adeath is sin; and the bstrength of sin is the law.

57 But athanks be to God, which giveth us the bvictory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

That's what I call Easter.

Go read what the Bible Dictionary says about Easter, then you might feel better about your Pagan Traditions. I read it on Sunday, I found it very interesting.
