Peeling away the Saran-Wrap
Sure, there are Easter traditions. Like the classic egg hunt. Exactly what does this have to do with the gruesome death and glorious Resurrection of Jesus? Oh, it's a symbol, you say? Eggs mean rebirth. Why didn't I think of that? Probably because no one is thinking about how miraculous the Resurrection of Jesus was when they are shoving someone into the dirt so they can get to a plastic egg with last year's candy in it.
Extra side note: Some try to devalue Easter since the actual date of the holiday is not historically accurate. I would agree, I don't believe we can know the exact date of the Crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This does not make His death and Resurrection or the celebration of it any less legitimate.
