I used to say 'Hoppy Easter'. That's like saying 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas'. I get the greeting across, but in the process I hopefully I don't offend anybody on either side of the Christian fence.
I am a 'Merry Christmas' kind of gal, so ...
Do not abandon yourselves to dispair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 NLT
But the angel said, "Do not be so surprised. You are looking for Jesus, the Nazarene, who was crucified. He isn't here! He has been raised from the dead!"
Mark 16: NLT
