Why the Easter Bunny?

There are two holidays every year that we throw the rules out the window.  Christmas and Easter.  They are the days that we allow ourselves and our kids to eat chocolate and candy for breakfast. 

Nothing is as wonderful to see the kids' little faces when they find all the treats the Easter Bunny left them, how excited they get when their baskets are filled to the brim with jelly beans, chocolate Easter eggs and the like.  Easter is a day for families to gather and have a great feast, visit, and yes, of course, laugh -- what fun!

However, let's not forget the real reason why the Easter Bunny graces our homes every year.  It is the day that draws attention to one of the most important things that we should all practice everyday -- forgiveness.  Let's not fail Him.

Have a great day and great Easter!
