Easter vs Christmas – Which Is Better?

Easter is a time for chocolate and for religion (and the Easter bunny)- Christmas is a time for presents, Christmas meals, and religion. The holidays are roughly the same length though Christmas seems slightly longer. However, the weather at Christmas is much worse (especially in England). Children seem to get much more presents at Christmas, but giving children presents doesn’t teach them what Christmas is about (Birth of Jesus). Easter is slightly better, as Easter eggs represent new life (Jesus’ resurrection).

Nobody can judge which is more important, as Christmas is about the birth of Jesus and Easter about the resurrection of Jesus. Personally, I prefer Easter as the weather is better (though it is unpredictable in England) and children aren’t spoiled with lots of presents at once and it is less expensive.

As both are very important religious festivals, I think I’m going to have to call it a draw.
