Christians can Incorporate Secular Traditions as long as our Focus is on Jesus
There's no getting around the commercialization of holidays in our culture. In America, we've allowed corporations to commercialize all holidays, and we've created a gazillion more unofficial holidays (especially celebrating food). There is no right or wrong way to do holiday traditions.
However, we must learn to separate the secular from the sacred and teach our children the true meaning of Easter and other Christian holidays. Our job is to explain to our children the reason for the season regardless of our holiday traditions. We run into trouble when we focus on the rituals and customs instead of glorifying God.
