Meaning of Easter disappearing

Easter has come and gone, and with it another year in which the reason for its existence probably slips a little more.

One of my Asian students asked her Aussie counetrparts what Easter was. They didn’t know; just muttering something about getting chocolate eggs.

Sadly, this is a scenario that is probably becoming more common. The same also applies to Christmas.

These religious seasons are fast becoming just another holiday. Without meaning, what’s the point of even having them?

More importantly, it indicates how ignorant some of us are.
