This is kind of silly because Easter Sunday, along with Good Friday, are the most crucial days for Christians. To reduce it to bunny rabbits and parades doesn't do it justice, especially since you could have easily had a section aimed at "the devout" which mentions churches where one can attend a beautiful Easter Sunday Mass. Just a thought.
