So here it is springtime and some of us are going to be celebrating Easter tomorrow. When we were children it was such a fun time. There were egg hunts, egg decorating, and visits from the Easter bunny. What was wrong with that? Nowadays people are afraid to acknowledge holidays for fear of offending someone! Now when did all that nonsense start and once again I ask who is the Grand Poo Pa who told us not to??
Over the years it appears that even preschools are shy about celebrating holidays. We totally get that there are people of different cultures celebrating other holidays, one such holiday right now is Passover. Why can’t we acknowledge them all and share our traditions with one another? Isn’t that what it is all about anyway? There are always parents who are willing to come in and share their family traditions with the class. What a wonderful thing!
We are taking a stand here and I hope more of you will join in. It’s time to once again ENJOY and CELEBRATE special days and feel free to do so. So we will sign off here by saying Happy Easter!
