Written in response https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2023/04/11/truthful-tuesday-11th-april/ and their question, do I think Easter is a commercialised as Christmas.

Yes, it has always been commercial though, even when I was a girl, I looked forward to the Easter Eggs, more than I did the reason behind the celebration. I was brought up in a Christian home, went to Sunday school every week. I still wear a cross, although, I don’t really go to church anymore. I probably believe more in guardian angels and that my dad is always watching over me.

It has got worse though. I mean two days after Christmas the Easter eggs started to be put on the shelves. I wouldn’t mind, but chocolate has a shelf life. It makes me think of some mince pies I was going to buy for a gift basket, only to find they were out of date before Christmas.

Saying that, I love chocolate, so wouldn’t refuse if someone brought it. If someone brought me mince pies, I would politely refuse. I mean, they are not mince and made of all the ingredients I loathe.

  1. All holidays have been commercialized to death, haven’t they. I’m not sure that Christians are the ones responsible, but we all play a part with every chocolate bunny we buy. Like you, I have a hard time resisting those delicate chocolate ears! 🙂
