1. Do you celebrate Easter?

2. If so, what is on your menu (or the menu of where you are going)?

3. If so, how much do you usually spend on an Easter Baskets for the kids? (asking because I keep reading how Easter is turning into Christmas with kids asking for high priced items)

4. Are you working on Good Friday?

Just out of curiousity.would you be OK with your kids participating in rituals associated with the worship of the Goddess, or worse yet, Protestant Reformation day?

I did not ask whether you were comfortable exposing your children to different world mythologies or relious beleifs and practices. My children have been exposed to such since. Before they were old enough to talk. I asked if you would be comfortable having themeree participate in activities associated with the worship of the Goddess or commemorating the leaders of the Protestant Reformation. For instance Ulrich Zwingli, in a protest against the civic reequirements to refrain from eating meat during Lent, cokked up and ate some sausages. Would you be OK with a class party on a Friday during Lent where the kids barbecued bratwursts and talked about life in 165h century Switzerland?

I would NOT want it to fly at my children's public school. Do know of any Hindu, Muslim or Jewish people who decorate eggs on Good Friday? Neither do I. It most definitely is part of a *religious* holiday.

Do they celebrate Divali? No Ruz? Eids? Beltaine? Or *any* non-Christian holiday? Would you be comfortable with the class celebrating any of those holidays/festivals?

thank you for that lesson on protestant reformation.


honestly, it's hard for me to imagine a practice my child would be asked or heavens, forced to participate in that has never happened..is it your opinion that's what easter eggs look like at a public school?

A Seder meal and talk of Passover is hardly giving a diverse education in a Christian church. Afterall, the last supper was a Seder and Jesus celebrated Passover.

*Easter* eggs are NOT secular. Christmas Trees are NOT secular. Santa is NOT secular. They are associated with a specific *religious* holiday.
