The other thing I don't understand is why in order to celebrate any Christian holiday we have to have a huge marketing gimmick meant to make us empty our wallets. Can we not celebrate without buying our kids something? I think it is safe to say that most kids out there today don't even know why we celebrate these holidays. It is all about Santa and Bunnies and whatever else will come up next.
It is also Passover this coming week, where is the Passover Bunny? Oh that is right, the Jewish people seem to actually respect their religion and don't feel the need to turn it into something it isn't.
|Oh I was wrong, there is a Passover Bunny!|
I know, I know I am bitching, and I am a hypocrite because I just finished dying the damn eggs with the boys, and I bought them baskets. I feel like if I don't my kids will feel like they are missing out on what their friends get to do. I am a sucker for peer pressure. I just want the insanity to stop and my wallet to stop being raped.
