"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?
Why? A two year old will not understand the story of Christ. But you have bright eggs for them to find with candy in them they will understand that there is a reason to rejoice on that day. And what makes adults smile more then to see the joy in a child's eye? and what would god want more then to have his children, young and old to be happy on these holidays? And most even if they do not belive enjoy these holidays... so when there children get older and learn the reasons why we celibrate these holidays may join in what you also belive in.
