Why we obviously still need to be teaching our children about the signifiance of Easter in 100 or fewer words:
My four-year-old speaks from the back seat. "Mom, I like Easter even more than I like Christmas."
In an instant my mind riffs off of her proclamation in self-congratulation. Take a look at that! She's getting it! Here's a child who understands the significance of such a holy day. Rebirth! New life! An empty tomb! Overcoming sin and death! Now we're cooking!
I check myself just long enough to ask a question. "That's great, honey. Why do you like Easter better?"
"You know, because of the leprechauns."
