Short and Sweet: Liking Easter More

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."
