Easter and the not so religious

 I would consider myself more spiritual then religious. Religious makes me think of a structured thing. I don’t see myself falling into that category. I fall more into my belief is more fluid. While I wouldn’t consider myself a Christian any more, we still celebrate Easter. I know that confuses people. I am not really sure why though. Why is it a hard concept that we can celebrate holidays for different reasons? I am not going to get offended by someone telling me Happy Easter. I didn’t even get offended when a friend point blank asked do I say Happy Easter to you? Sure you can. I even had a friend who was not sure what to say so she said Happy Weekend! Sure!  What I find more offensive is not saying anything because I don’t believe in the holiday the way you do.
I choose to let my child participate in the Easter bunny and baskets. This year we concentrated her basket more on gardening. It has been a big interest she has had and I am starting to get on board with it. I can’t promise I won’t kill any plants though. I am so very good at killing them. However, I have kept my little herb garden going the past three months or so, so perhaps there is hope.

  1. Happy Easter. We played Easter by ear this year and although going to Church is usually a big part of our Easter and we didn’t get there this year as we are on holidays. I am currently doing the A-Z Blogging challenge and wrote up Easter Growing Up for my E entry. xx Rowena
