I for one don't want my kid to celebrate a lie, regardless of if it makes them smile. They can smile just as big celebrating the real deal. "Guess what little Timmy, you don't have to die in your sins because Jesus did it for you. No Timmy, you are not getting a chocolate rabbit." See.. why would that not put a smile on a kid?
