Another Holiday Which Dare Not Speak Its Name?

As we drove down Katella Avenue toward Disneyland this afternoon, we passed Stanton City Hall, where we noticed a big sign advertising the city's Spring Egg Hunt. The hunt is being held on April 15th, Holy Saturday.

You don't suppose this is actually an Easter egg hunt in disguise, do you?

It seems that "spring" is becoming to "Easter" as "holiday" is to "Christmas."

Then there is this week's latest story of hostility to the most innocuous expression of religion in the public square, with the "Human Rights Director" for the City of St. Paul pulling a Happy Easter sign from public display so no one would be offended. Just whose rights was he protecting?

It was actually refreshing to notice gaily decorated pins saying "Happy Easter" at Disneyland, especially as they long ago started labeling even their Christmas tree ornaments as "holiday" ornaments, which strikes me as the height of absurdity. Is it really likely anyone buying a Christmas tree ornament would be offended by the word Christmas?

What I would like to know is who are all these "offended" people. Do they have the mentality of 5 year olds? Probably a bunch of killjoys who just want to spoil the fun.
