I really enjoyed your story - especially the object lesson at the end. I, too, am somewhat bothered by the pagan origins of the things we use to celebrate Easter. One other thing to consider - an egg is a symbol of new life. We, as Christians, experience new life as a result of what happened at that first Easter.

One space will do between paragraphs...very interesting story. I remember some of the customs of my grandparents - totally alien in today's society. Thank you for submitting.

You may be able to give yourself further permission to 'color those Easter eggs' by aquainting yourself with the history of 'pagan' traditions.

It is not the coloring of eggs that drew me in, but your wonderful INSIGHT about building bridges instead of walls. I imagine you have many wonderful stories about your in-laws that could be a basis for a whole book. I love the marriage of the two cultures. This is very good. :0)

I loved this! A good friend of mine from college makes "Romainian Eggs" (most people call them Ukranian) but she's from Romania. It is a true art form. The designs used on those eggs do have Christian meaning -when made by Christian artists.

Your writing talent is evident. This piece is very well written. I agree that your insight is superb. What a wonderful tribute to your in-laws.

We all have a way of buiding walls instead of bridges. That was my favorite line.
