How Times Have Changed

I asked several children this week what they thought Easter was all about - I was given astonished looks and told that it was all about the Easter bunny and Easter eggs - there was the faint silent echo of the word 'stupid' after the word eggs - Well Bob Dylan did write "The Times are a Changin" and I do remember singing it.

If you are a Christian you will be happy that Christ has risen.
If you are a child you will be happy the Easter bunny is coming.

If you are me, you will acknowledge the metaphor of the resurrection, then say bugger it and scoff the lovely pagan, chocolate, marsh mellow Easter eggs and hide the bathroom scales under the bed.
