War on Easter? Schools, Cities Planning Another Round of ‘Spring Egg Hunts’

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

In our increasingly politically-correct society, Christmas isn’t the only holiday too hot to handle for school districts. Easter, another holiday rooted in Christian faith, is now being marginalized by governmental entities.

School districts and cities across America are holding “Spring egg hunts” and similar events, frequently omitting the word “Easter” from calendars and public announcements. Consider these:

• On March 16th, Flat Rock Elementary School in Anderson, South Carolina is holding a “Community Egg Hunt.”
West Shore School District will be holding its “PTO Egg Hunt” on March 16th.
• New York’s East Meadow Schools will be holding its “Spring Egg Hunt” on March 19.
• The Prospect Heights Public Library District in Illinois is holding its “Spring Egg Hunt” on March 26th.
• California’s Manhattan Beach Unified School District has its “Spring Egg Hunt” in late March.
• The City of Upland, California will hold its “Spring Egg Hunt” March 30.

There are many, many more examples.

Does it matter that they’re detaching “Easter” from “egg hunts”? After all, the original significance of the day has nothing to do with bunnies, candy or hunting painted eggs.

It does, because “culturally sensitive” bureaucrats are further secularizing America by wiping Christian names off traditional community events.

Like Christmas, Easter has become increasingly commercialized. But by continuing to embrace the Christian rooting, we’re remembering the real reason for the holidays. As secular progressives remove the meaning, they’re becoming nothing more than Hallmark holidays and we’re becoming an increasingly ungrounded society.
