Just asking - why did you write this as an "either/or" kind of thing? Why can't one do both, attend church and still eat chocolate, hunt for eggs, gather with friend, give gifts, decorate a tree, dance, make flower crowns, dress up and eat candy? Why must it be do one OR do the other?
I was wondering the same thing. You can celebrate the reason for the holiday(Jesus' birth, resurrection, etc) and still enjoy the secular(santa, Easter bunny) one doesn't have to take away from the other, unless YOU let it. i personally get annoyed with those that always have to pipe Up about the "reason for the season".
