What's even worse (in my mind, at least) is that in the midst of the de-emphasizing of these classic holidays, there is a movement now to make Super Bowl Sunday a national holiday. Any guesses why??

You hit every nail right on the head.

I still celebrate the holidays like they should be celebrated...the old-fashioned way. I love keeping traditions and we do not make these holidays into drinking parties.

When I was in grade school in the 80's my school would have little Easter egg hunts at the school.

^My school had egg hunts too, in the mid-late 80s.

We still do egg hunts for the kids in the community. They always have fun!

Is this because Easter is getting a new image or is it because the stores want to have sales for holidays like Mother's Day and Memorial Day in May rather than Easter sales? I remember when Easter was the second biggest holiday next to Christmas and every store would have Easter baskets on display and people would buy lots of Easter candy to put in the kids Easter baskets and another trend that became popular in malls is photos with the Easter bunny. But if you look at Easter today you'll see few malls feature Easter bunny photos and now it seems the only things that are being put in the Easter baskets are toys and gift cards for the kids in addition to candy and so it tells me that this will be known as the new Easter tradition every single Easter
Do you think Easter has adopted a new image this year?

Easter is very much promoted here in Sweden. Of course, it will be more about the chickens, eggs, feathers and bunnies than about Jesus. But most people around here aren't that religious, so that is only to be expected.

Well yes, Easter is after all a spring festival. We had snow only yesterday though.
