    While reading the activities planned for Easter I was thinking…How nice to celebrate a Religious event. It’s great to see children involved and having fun. However,could it be possible that the Newspaper could step up to the plate and tell us all What is the true meaning of Easter?. Some may not know why eggs are hidden (by a Rabbit) and then found by children. I’m sure it can be told,after all it is the Main reason there are Christians and what they believe isn’t it?
