    That hit the nail on the head like a 5 ton hammer. Easter in its message is about the brutal death of a man that claimed to be more than a man and no matter what you believe about Jesus , its hard, like the article points out , to wrap it up with a cute and cuddly wrapper. Christmas shouldn’t either but as Christians we have failed to point out that the shadow of the cross was over that babe in the animals feeding bed.
